I’ve just bought a 1991 Rover 214si.
The sole owner had it garages for the last 6 years and it’s only done 24,000 miles.
Have you had to put a lot of hard work into becoming this lucky?

Re: How many R8's left - do we have a definitive number?

Would it be possible to add the split between 3-dr and 5-dr bodystyle into the 'by model' table,
as you have effectively done for the Cabby, please? It would be nice to have a 'Total' column tagged
on the end for each model row too.

The list was updated last Tuesday (see page 4 of this thread) to include the missing 220GSi and 214S models :S
If you mean it incorporates the extra data you were hoping to receive via your inside contact, it still shows fewer 214S than known survivors!

A flurry of snipes sent this one to £1120.
Hopefully it is appreciated for more than its shell.

Re: How many R8's left - do we have a definitive number?

Blimey - mine's the rarest of the lot! And that's before sub-division by 3dr/5dr. Edit: I've checked the 214S examples mentioned over the last few years on the forum against https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/, and obtained the following outcomes: Taxed: H592DOD H842DOD J951EPN SORN: H119PSC H380...

Thanks for the information but it doesn't tell me anything more than I already know.
Did you note the extant, but SORN VIN of my own car on the bottom line? As it's a variant
which hasn't made it into your summary table yet!

Re: How many R8's left - do we have a definitive number?

Does this info from early 1991 help? From the example serial given, it seems this scheme dated from range introduction. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't provide the code letter for each option available. From Rover Repair Manual AKM 6365 (2nd Ed 1991) Engines covered: 1.4 8v Carb, 1.4 16v SPi, 1.6 ...

Timewarp cleanliness, can't see a hint of rust! Long MoT, not a single mention of corrosion there either.

While you're double-checking, it would be nice to correct '3rd' to '3dr'!

Re: Rover 416GSI 1990 Front Subframe

I have a 1990 Rover 416Gsi with a rusty front (front) subframe. It's been removed by my local garage as I was hoping to get it shotblasted , powder coated and refitted. However, the rust has apparently progressed too far to be easily repaired. If it's too far gone, then an option would be to source...

Just spotted these while looking for something else!
There's an awful lot of 'useful' items like this listed from Lithuania every day.
But who knows whether they're kosher?
And what additional charges might ensue as they cross the UK border?

Re: Brake Master Cylinder - Who is the Club's Expert?

I've got more of a thing about the proportioning valve sitting on the suspension tower nearby, mine having failed about 10 years ago, evidenced by rupture of the small rubber plug halfway up, and weeping of fluid. NLA via my XPart dealer of course, and non-serviceable. I managed to get another from ...
