: scottish newbie
just a post to say hi and introduce myself.
i'm 23 and have had a rover 620ti for approx 3 1/2 months now.so far i've been blown away by the performance from such a big car,also the fact i did not have to pay much for the car and insurance was a major buying point as well.the car is excellent as standard but the modding bug has started to hit now so any suggestions welcome.
would also be interested in any scottish meets if any planned.
mmm ti, nice.
i thought about getting one earlier in the year, but a bit big for me.
so where abouts in scotland u from?
meets... erm, aye.

:) take it from that answer not many if any meets happen then.
i'm from airdrie but am staying in livingstone just now.
a few have been attempted, but theres not really enough of us.
think the most of us was 4 at knockhill, oh aye, there was 4 of us at crail last week, but no specific meet as yet.
We do mean well when we try to organise meets but it's trying to get everyone in the same place at the same time that seems to cause problems.
However, we'll keep trying and hopefully it will happen eventually.
Hi robert :) There might of been some of us at Crail but we still didnt meet up :lol: Maybe one day :p
welcome aboard. I know we've done this before and had polls etc. but where would be the best place for us all to meet up then?
I'm from East Kilbride and I think there are a couple from Hamilton, then you guys are well further north. Gorrieman's from Livingstone as well is he not?
Dont think its the distance for the meet its arranging a time that everyone can manage as it will most likely be at the weekends and people having to work.
Also theres no reason why it couldn't be a regular fixture (a wee run through to the east coast would be nice) and the location could change per meet.
BTW robert look forward to having a peep at your ti what mods have you done:D
none yet, but planning on a few.car's getting serviced next wed then mot time next month.will have to see how much cash left for mods after that.
Only problem with the ti is that stock mods are hard to find and they cost only had mine since the summer and with a service must be close to the grand mark been spent on it, but i love it:D
Thanks col know the site all i meant was that compared to the run of the mill cars trying to get mods for a ti is awkward.
If you try most online retailers ti parts are like gold dust.
e.g. try and get an uprated air filter most other makes are listed but no ti, this usually follows for the rest but you get there in the end
i had the same problem with the vi... "a rover what? is that like a honda v-tech?"
piece of **** now the ZR's are everywhere. It seems for people to know anything about your car, it has to be bright yellow with a big spoiler. :)
that's half the fun with any car which you cannot get part's for.when you eventually get the part you feel a sense of achievement,the same as if you do a mod yourself instead of paying a garage.if i find anything that may be of interest to you i'll defo post the info here.
yeah i'm bored at work and thought i'd do a bit of stalking:D
Liams right....I'm from Livingston too......Scrub that...I'm from Edinburgh, but live in Livingston.
What colours your TI, and I'll keep an aye out. If you see a red ZT...then don't make an arse of yourself, cos it might not be me....I have seen another ZT kicking about the area now and again.
oi....why the the word arse censored??...it's not that bad is it... arse arse arse arse...a...r...s..e.
standard dirty british racing green.might get it washed this weekend to add a couple of horsey's to it:D
Welcome to the site Robert.......:D
