Re: R3 UK only?

We were fairly young when we first bought them 20 years ago! I remember seeing the R3 at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1995 and being very impressed with how modern it looked particularly after the recent launch of the dowdy 5 door HH/R. My wife to be as she was then bought her first R3, a 220D 3dr ...

Charcoal was a standard colour on the later versions of the 214SEi. It was also used in publicity material for the later (R3 dash) Tourers.

Re: rover 216 gti twin cam honda engine 5 door

There is a difference between low average mileage, (total mileage divided by age) and low mileage which means, well, low mileage! Very few cars will do 10-12k miles per year consistently past say 10 or 12 years as they tend to change ownership and different owners use cars to a differing extent. Old...

Re: What gearbox maintenance does a 2001 45 V6 require?

The 45 V6 was only available as an auto. I am not aware that a KV6 was ever mated to a PG1 gearbox? The 75 used a Getrag gearbox which is nothing like as slick to use as a PG1 but at least it doesn't whine like a PG1 when it has done high mileages.

Re: R3 UK only?

I am sure the rear suspension was changed not only because of the handling, the H frame was cheaper to build and took up less room. The rear suspension on the R8 is overly complicated and can only be a Honda design. The Maestro & Montego were always praised for their handling & ride so why would Rov...
