Question 98 rover 200 Modification help!!

Hey guys.. can I just say what a help this forum is to people and how great all the members are, for quick replies and photoshop help etc.. thanks guys..

Right, down to business... I am the proud owner of a 98 rover 200 British Racing Green. I love modified cars but im a complete novice, alot of the talk that is posted up here i do not understand... especially when it comes to engines etc!

basically i have a standard car that needs a good goin over! the interior i am quite proud of.. i have sprayed the centre console, clock surround, dial surround and those fan things, silver, and have sprayed the previously wood trim parts, door handle surrounds and ash treys, brittish racing green. Outside is where i need advice... I'm thinkin mgzr alloys and black go fast stripes? any suggestions please help me out!!

have been out this mornin takin pics of the car, but am havin problems transferrin them from my camera.. when i get it sorted i will post them..

cheers

Your best bet mate is to go into the gallery along the top and look through the 200s and see what you like!

As for ZR alloys, keep checking in the For Sale section as they often appear in there.

just my opinion (which doesnt mean alot) is that Viper stripes and anything of that nature has gone the way of the 3 spoke wheel, not the best look for your car

but if you think it'll look good then go for it, personal preference is the most important thing
