In the darkness, then light.... Nice motors Charlie and I personally love the style and shape of 1989/90 era of cars, same as my mk 1 G-reg 216.

One of my Rover cars (620i) has a Honda unit. Interesting period that early 90's with the tie-up between Rover and Honda, would be great to see a section on this with as much info regarding the engines, models and floorpans shared, differences in trim etc and when this ended ie BMW involvement how this affected the range and outlook. Is a wide story there....

went out last week to a meal with friends, I took a car full, lets just say speedbumps hurt....

anyway, a friend let me try his summer wheels on while they were off his car, 8x15 ET10

look nice, may need smaller tyre for the front 185 instead of the 195

also tried a 7x15 on the front unknown ET just to check what was best

yes, yes it is, I didn't need a full width one, and this fits nicely between the bike racks, shuts the roof bars up, no wind whistles now
