How to tell if it is a Rover 75 CDTi 131 or CDT 116

I have just purchased a Rover 75 tourer 04 reg can anyone tell me how I would know if it is a 131 or not. There is nothing in the registration document to say if it is but I have just had 2 insurance quotes and after giving the reg. no. it has come up as a 131. I would like to know what the differences are as well it anyone can help.

Hi

Attached are two spread sheets to show the codes that differentiate the two models. If you have a look on your logbook (V5C form) under 'Version'. It is a subheading under the 'Model/Type'. Then cross reference this code to the Microsoft Word document, you will be able to tell which state of tune your 75 is in. Thanks to Rincewind for producing those two guides - they are invaluable.

What model 75 Tourer do you have? Is it a facelift or an original model 75?

As for the differences, it is simply down to a different programme on the ECU. Any 75/ZT can be upgraded from a 116Ps to 131Ps by downloading a new programme to the ECU.

Try one of the previous MG Rover dealers, they should be able to order them from Xpart for you. Alternatively, check here www.xpart.com

I didn't realise that there was a difference. I thought they were both the same.
