    ... actually a Rover 620 Ti.

    So bodywise a reskinned 5th Generation Accord. Thought I'd join up in case of any body related queries/hints/tips.

    Mechanical wise the Ti doesn't use Honda engines. The Ti is equipped with Rover's T series engine, so somewhat quicker than the Honda engined variants :Smile:

    Thanks for the welcome on-board.

    Before the Ti I had a 620 Si, think that was F20Z engine (could well be wrong there), management was PGM-FI. Didin't find it particularly quick so moved over to the joys of 200 horses of Forced Induction and 60 in 7 secs.

    Unusual problems your father in law had. Only engine known to give problems, in the Rover at least, is the H23

    Engines in the new MG models are completely new ones, designed/built by SAIC.

    TATA ended up with the rights to the Rover name when they bought JLR off of Ford, can't see them ever bringing it back. They did get the G series diesel engine, which I think they used in a few of their home grown cars. The G series was common rail evolution of the L series, which Honda used in the Civic, not sure if it was used in the Accord.
