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.
Current:
1996-N Nightfire 420 GSi Tourer
2005 Volvo V50 1.8 Sport
Former:
1994-M BRG 214 SEi
1995-N Silver 214 SEi
1995-N Nightfire Red 214 SEi
1995-M Silver 216 SLi
1993-K Caribbean Blue 216 Cabriolet
1990-G White 416 GSi
+ a 25, 45 & 75

:welcome

I had a 420 GSi Tourer a few years ago: great car, but I changed to a 25 diesel because of the mileage I was doing and the need to keep fuel costs down at the time. :)

As Paul says, get the 1995 onwards manual, which will cover you for the engine and gearbox etc, then get the Haynes manual for the 214/216 range 1991-95 which will get you sorted for body, electrics, etc.

Genuine factory manuals appear for sale from time to time a few of us own them already and are usually willing to help if anybody is having problems. There is also a great deal of knowledge and experience among forum members, so if you are not sure of anything, just ask :wink3
