This is my Rover 75 diesel and its the higher power variant and it had done 190k miles when I got it 1.5 years ago and it has now done 225k miles.
The car looks nice and has probably been taken car of by the original owner but the person I bought it from hadn't taken too good care of it.
Previously I had a 1999 Rover 400 1.6 to which I had also done a lot of work and that was a nice and relatively quickly accelerating car but its problem was that I really needed a tourer for the extra space and I need to tow my Mg Metro hill climb car around to races which the 400 wasn't allowed to.
So far besides oil, all filters and all tyres I have changed the following:
both front lower suspension arms
both front anti-roll bar links
all 4 disks and pads
rear shock absorbers
fixed a leaky intercooler
polished both headlights
fixed the fan behind the bumper
changed a lousy unoriginal headunit with a good one and the steeringwheel controls box to fit
The car still needs work though, among other things a rear wheel bearing, two broken cup holders, central locking not working in either of the two rear doors, two rusty door finishers
My first point is that it is quite an expensive car to fix compared to the old 400 so I really hope it passes its MOT in about 2 weeks.
And my second point is that the guy who designed the rear brakes, front suspension and intercooler pipe routing wasn't a very maintenance minded guy.
