Re: Club Social Media Presence

Thank you for the feedback. I understand your points, but in the 21st century, social media is here to stay. The Twitter and Instagram accounts are not intended to replace the club forum but to complement it. As such the central repository, ie the club website, would not be lost. Note that the Twitt...

Good to see wasn't another fake Instagram account :laughing2
Have you seen any others purporting to be the Club?
I had a good look around but couldn’t see any.

Re: Club Social Media Presence

In two days, the new Club Twitter account has gained 12 followers, and the Instagram account 46 followers.

Very pleased with that in 48 hours and this will only help the profile of the club being raised.

Re: Rover 45 V6. SOLD it XKR still for sale

Hi mate, it’s s shame it came to this but it’s understandable. I’ve been driving Rovers for nearly 20 years and can honestly say I’ve had relatively trouble free motoring. The only real problems were with one of my 214 SEi’s years ago, but I was using it as a daily and doing 17,000 miles a year, and...

Re: Rover Graveyard in Oxfordshire?

Could this yard be anything to do with Craig Cheetham?

Got my beady eye on the 220 GTi!

Re: Wooden Gear Knob

Thanks chaps - good shout John about the wooden heater surround.

Modifying the 75 insert to fit on the gear stick thread sounds like a good idea :)

Wooden Gear Knob

Are there any wooden gear knobs available that will fit the R8? I’d like to upgrade.

There’s a few 75 ones on eBay but they are a push fit not screw fit.

Re: Oh Dear

The police don’t seize cars for no tax or MOT as far as I know (that’s down to the DVLA), however they will seize for no insurance, or like you say it could be stolen/recovered. Is this a Rover we’re taking about?

Hi Dave, it’s not a foregone conclusion that it’s HGF. What engine is it? K series example?

Re: Hi, just got a 420 GSI 2.0 Tourer

Hi Steve, welcome!

Good to see a fellow 420 GSi Tourer owner. I love mine. :)

I’ve seen three for sale recently - green, grey and blue, so I expect yours may be one of those?

There is no manual for the 2.0 R8. Closest I could get was for the Rover 420 (bubble shape). Not ideal but it will do.
