Re: 214 SLi Price 1991

The Rover Dealer in Beeston was selling [second hand] 214 SLi's for £7k in 1993. I hadn't thought about the cost of servicing before splashing out.... Anyway the car needed a 24,000 mile major service just after I bought it, that bleed me dry until I learnt not to turn up on a Saturday morning & pa...

Re: Exhausts

I recently had a quote for a cat back stainless steel exhaust for my Tourer and it was £269 which I thought was quite reasonable.

It’s a job I’m going to get done in the next year hopefully.

214 SLi Price 1991

Hi all, had an enquiry via Twitter asking how much a 214 SLi would have been brand new in 1991. Any ideas?

Re: Former 214SEi owner

Hi Darren, I too love the SEi and have owned 4 examples - British Racing Green, Silver, Nightfire Red and Charcoal. They are probably my favourite R8 Rovers with a lovely spec. I own the charcoal one presently, 1996 N reg, with 49,000 on the clock. I bought it last year, with it being stood for aro...

Re: Former 214SEi owner

Best colour for them (Charcoal) in my opinion! Sold this 29,000miler for £300 a few of years ago - almost couldn't give it away :sad https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49908536132_1e3120dee8_3k.jpg Possibly due to the lack of a sunroof? I’ve always loved a sunroof in an R8 and never fancied one wi...

Re: Regional meet

There is a classic car cafe at Sherburn In Elmet called The Motorist, which would probably be of more use to the northern contingent.

Perhaps a good venue for the NE & Yorkshire club meets?
