Soon to be 623 owner...

Hello all,

Scott here from North East Scotland, I am 21 years old and have owned quite a few cars in my short driving career, but so far no Rovers, although I always wanted to get my hands on one.

Due to a left knee injury years ago I cannot drive a manual on a daily basis without getting moderate to severe leg pain, and since my last automatic (Mercedes C220 W202-body) was written off in December 2016 I have been driving my 1996 Peugeot 405 Quasar 1.9 turbo diesel daily, which is hurting it due to its increasing fragility at 21 years of age, and the stiff cable-operated clutch is hurting my knee something awful!!

So long story short, I stumbled upon a Gumtree listing last night for a 1999 Rover 623 GSi and after a few text messages back and forth with the owner, I have arranged to pick it up after work tomorrow evening.

I'm very much looking forward to buying it, and having two future classic cars in my possession!

That's all for now.

Well, got the 623 home tonight! Beautiful car, bargain price and a dream to drive. My old Mercedes felt like a Lada by comparison. This just feels so much more solid, has more luxuries and is a heck of a lot more powerful!

I'll get better photos tomorrow and create a specific thread, but here are some nighttime shots from tonight.

Well, got the 623 home tonight! What can I say, it makes my old Mercedes feel like a Lada by comparison. Much more luxurious, better built, and much more powerful!!

Certainly my best car purchase to date, even though it will end up costing me a fortune in petrol...

Some nighttime photos, I'll get some better ones tomorrow and probably create a thread specifically for it with more information.

Please excuse the double post above, I thought the first one didn't go through then realised it needed to be approved by a moderator, hence posting it twice!!
