    Default my new second car

    as some might know ive been looking for a second car for last couple of weeks preferably vectra b estate, lo and behold ive just bought a ........................rover 416ls! feel free to mock cos i think i got a bargain .its a 1998 s plater with67.000 miles, full unmarked leather interior,elec sunroof,windows, mirrors,pas etc .the bodywork (british racing green) is virtually unmarked there is history also with the car.the guy was looking for £1175 with a years ticket but he settled for 900 ,its still motd for a month so ive got time to sort it. ilooked at numerous vectras and even an astra estate and they all had various faults and rough bodys engines etc so i went to see the rover as a spur of the moment thingy and the rest as they say is history, anyway im gauging interest/p155 taking before i post any piccies of the beast!

    I've had a number of Rovers/MGs in the past (including a 416). Never had a single problem with any of them. They'll be no mocking from me. Sounds like a good bargain.

    I had an MG before the Vec, never had a major problem, but all minors were rectified under warranty with no probs (unlike vx!)

    Good call on the water pump, but check the oil and water weekly, my wifes old one started using a bit of water, didn't realise why until it was too late! You guessed it, Head gasket. Other than that, the thing was superb.

    My missus has got a R reg 420i. Was my old company car - so we had it since new. Never had any major problems with it. A bit old to drive now, especially compared to the Vec (makes you realise how good the Vec is!), but still goes fine!!
