My 1992 214Si

This is my '92 214Si. Bought it in January for 300 with just under 40,000 miles on the clock. Had a few issues with it but it's in pretty good nick.

Lemme bring the shine to this thread...



Bought for 1000 in 2005.

Don't know if it still exists as the DVLA can't find details of it. I traded it for a knackered (structurally) '89 MR2, which I only kept 4 weeks as it was a death trap.

I can understand an appeal of an MR2... but i bet you're now kicking yourself?
haha. Nice shiny motor, that

I would imagine it would be sky high, being a GSi Turbo, but probably alot cheaper then other turbo'd 2ltr cars as its 'only a rover'.. a rover kicking out, what, 140bhp?
I really crave a 2dr GSi turbo ! Did you upgrade the shocks at all?

But still, proves the point of high insurance.

Here's my 250 special I bought in August. It's a 214Si which has since been converted to SEi spec with half leathers, alloys and electric windows. It was a Police car for the first 11 years of its life then it was owned by some guy who just drove it between Bicester and Oxford everyday and now I thrash it to within an inch of it's life on road rallies and autotests

Here's a selection of pics from the last autosolo I did. (Basically an event where you thrash round the cones as quick as you can)
