I've now had this car for 3 months. Although I've not done many miles in it (My principle mode of transport is a motorbike), it's beginning to grow on me. There are still things I don't like (It's red. It's a FWD manual and it's a hatchback), it is a competent little runaround. Ordinarily, the spending of money on the Rover would've stopped by now, as I only bought the car as a stop-gap until I got a Rover 75. However, the spending has started again.
I haven't bought anything fundamental to the running of the Rover (That stage is finished), just those little detail things. I've replaced the tatty driver door speaker cover. The cloth on the old one had become unstuck on one edge and looked awful. I've also bought the labels that go on the power steering and coolant tanks as mine were missing. Silly, I know. They're just details that don't do anything, but their presence make the engine more 'looked after'. Then I turned my attention to Project Drive.
I've been through the list of deletions for the Rover 25. It's quite surprising how much of the stuff is still available. The only bit I really wanted isn't though. I really miss the illuminated ring around the ignition from my old Rover 400. I would've reinstated that part in an instant! Are there any other deleted parts that are worth having?
