You have two types of heat shield. Pre-facelift and facelift one. On your link I do not see any pre-facelift which you need.
You need to look for ZR pre-facelift version which have bolts evenly distrubuted along heat shield, while facelift has bolts on left and right side while middle is without bolts.

EDIT: Correction, I see one in blue - this one http://m.ebay.ie/itm/MK1-MG-ZR-Hatch...055?nav=SEARCH

The Mk1 ZR rear bumper heatshield won't fit to a Mk1 Rover 25 rear bumper - the lower part of the ZR bumper is a different shape from the 25. To put one on a 25, you would firstly need to fit the ZR lower moulding from a ZR built before October 2002 (from then on, the ZR bumper was all in one single moulding).

The Mk2 ZR bumper was the exact same shape as the one for the Mk2 25, so a Mk2 heatshield will fit straight on to a Mk2 Rover 25 rear bumper.

Thank you to both @Man in the Car & @Roverlike.

Nevertheless I'll try to see if any fitting could be done with a Mk1 ZR heat shield by any means. Actually the shape look very similar. I hope it could be adapted as nicely as possible.

But, @Roverlike, unfortunately, the link you gave me is the one, but the guy doesn't want to send the stuff in France. Shame!

Look at that very weird choice:

I'm flabbergasted! It's completely mad!

Happy end!

Another vendor, initially not sending to France as well, has accepted to do it. Blessed be the kind man!

And icing on the cake it was the last genuine MG Rover heat shield he had, still packed in its original bag.
16 for it plus 4 postage. A good chunk less than Rimmer (some 60 or around!)!

Now I've to find out the convenient bolts (or screws) ref. DYP000380 & nuts ref. DYH000250, I know Rimmer have them, but much too expensive as usual for my taste...

And drill the holes in the bumper.

BTW is there anybody knowing the length & diameter of those bolts?
I can't find any information on the net.
But I'm sure I can find the same much more affordable in a bunch of 10: M8 M6 M4...&c but I must know which right one to order.

Thanks a lot mates.

I knew you are going to try it although it is not straight fit, so I did not mentioned it is not straight swap.

However good that Man in the car mentioned it for other reference. Always here to fill the exact information. You can count on him.

Regarding bolts I cannot help, but if anybody else will not be able to help I would send email to Rimmers if they have it on stock in order to ask,if they can help on the measure.

What is the name of eBay seller you bought it from? Asking as I might know him...

Regarding the bolts & nuts, it's just not to waste too much time and have all the fittings when the heat shield arrive. But I guess I could find them at the next corner, not very far from home. Any countersunk allen screw of the appropriate diameter (2 or 3mm maybe) and length will fit I guess. But the more you know the better.

The Ebay seller is danieljohn1414, but he signed as Steve.

Thanks nevertheless to both for your help.

EDIT: the only thing I've found is that the pitch must be 0.35mm.
