Dr Doggystyle's Rover 200 Vi

I have this car since 2009 and i bought it already transformed into an MG ZR 160 from the outside except the front which was done by the previous owner Striker (was also a member on this forum)

here at the pics (mostly from Striker) from the begining in 2003 when it was a very standard Rover 200 vi.


































then it became mine
























some movies :

It's a very tidy looking car, loving the grille...!
The only thing i don't like is the front bumper lip but each to their own x

Nice car matey, looks tidy !


If that was mine I would smooth the front bumper inserts and upper tram line, fit a BRM Lower grille and colour code it, I would also get another front grille, colour code it but retain the Rover Badge and mesh it, I recon it misses the badges a bit.

As for the rest, I like it, perhaps remove and smooth the rear bumper rub strips for the smooth look and retain the 200 heritage.

thank you for the nice replies and tips
i will leave the car like this. too much work since i also have another project car (turning a r45 MK2 into an MG ZS MK2 180 from the outside with full bodykit and extreme spoiler)

Here where i live there are a lot of Honda Civic HB and VW Golf MK3/MK4
most of them only know their make and when i drive by they don't know what my car is since you cant see any logo's from the outside while driving
so i will keep it logoless and "undercover" thats more funny when i win a race with them and they cant guess what it is
