Previously Owned Owned by andy83

  • this old girl we kept on the road for just over 3 years in that time she got 3 full clean mot's sadly since selling on towards end of last year is no long on the road. before we owned her she had been kept well and by a race engineer so was so happy to of owned her and for a 1.6 she was powerful and 1 of reasons I say Honda is 1 of the best car makers....:gohonda:
  1. Nice Rover. I think Rover should have continued using Honda engine. My dad had a 214i, I thought it was wicked.
    Always wondered why Rover and Honda looked similar when I was younger

      Rover were doing very well during their partnership with Honda, so much so BMW was getting worried, then decided to buy them, Rover betrayed Honda with a deal under the desk, and then BMW went onto drive the brand to its death. The rest is history.
