    Well been looking at swapping my 306 for an MG ZR (a grey, 3 dr 1.8 version) as they look cool as hell.

    Can anyone link me up a reputable site that lists all the features for each model in this range.....

    Check the interior door handles as the bit of trim always falls off, and central locking as mentioned.

    heh you think your french car is built badly, wait till you buy a car thats built by a workforce knowing its going under and about to be made redundant.i am a bit judgemental although i have many friends who used to work at the cowley factory and went to college and uni with a few of their aprentices and they are the same with the rover brand :) although i still think the 220 turbo is a cracking car :)

    Pretty much everything has been mentioned

    As well as the checks mentioned above don't forget about the usual checks needed when you buy a used car. Make sure that the coolant is always topped up and don't rev it above 3000 rpm when cold

    Good cars though

    Look at the 1.8 120 version

    For me it only cost a small amount more to insure than the 1.4 and it was vastly cheaper than the 160

    It's still a nippy car, 0-60 in 8.5 seconds

    With such a massive choice of superior machinery out there , from manufacturers who hav'nt gone to the wall due to the fact their range was ,frankly, rubbish.

    I'm astounded people are still considering Rovers.



    That sums it up nicely imo. :p Well, Hell is such a cool place isn't it? :D
