Exciting times!!!! Just booked a train ticket to go and pick this up!!!

 

IMG_7239.jpg

http://www.ebay.co.u...S-/281903280036

 

Train ticket from Derby to Reading: £70

5 individual tickets for each leg of the same journey on the same flipping train: £36.

 

I can't wait to see what a 2.0 KV6 is like, must be supa silky smooth, I am well excited even if CAR magazine voted this one of their 4 biggest lemons of the year in 2001 due to its badly-matched engine and box combo. What do they know?

Sweet purchase there McBollox. Shame it doesn't have leather for that ultra luxurious junior-Rover 75 feel, but I guess that's down to, personal taste.

I've seen and heard a few 2.0 V6 75s passing by me, they honestly sound glorious and I'm wondering if these sounds similar?

Having them on my radar myself, I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's first hand report - if it makes the trip without grenaderising.

The KV6 2.0 manual I drove was stupidly low geared . It wouldnt be able to get out of its own way otherwise

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

It will be interesting to see how you get on at that place. A couple of threads on another forum I read a while back suggested they were a bunch of cunts, but I suspect they were written by people expecting main dealer style facilities including designer coffee.

Pretty car.  I think that'll bring an outrageous amount of pleasure for £295.

 

I very much liked the 2.0 KV6 in my old 75.  The acceleration wasn't rapid, but that just meant you could enjoy the lovely woofly noise for longer before you got up to speed.  There was more power lurking somewhere up the rev band, but it felt undignified to go up there looking for it.

 

 

By 2001, CAR was all about lap times and schoolboy humour.  I'm not surprised they didn't like it.  With gearboxes, as with life, the trick is to find the joy within it, not dogmatically to impose your own demands:  Phil Llewellin understood this and would have written a different (and entirely better) story.

Hey, nice buy there! Interesting to see that the dealer is located a couple of miles from where I live! Some odd feedback on their ebay account, one of the negatives was for an A3 which apparently had a failed MOT, yet has a clean sheet of passes on the MOT site?! 

To be fair, I think they probably get people expecting a mint car who get all funny with niggles. 

 

Hope the collection all goes smoothly.

You've done good once again, I didn't know there even was a 2.0 KV6, will be interesting to see how it compares to the 2.0 T-Series - it probably doesn't spray quite so much oil around the engine bay.

The terms and conditions from that place seem proper shirty at first glance, but when you read into it they are pretty fair. Bid on a car, rock up, test drive it all day, if you don't like it walk away.

They probably know their cars aren't as good as they look in pictures, they even go as far to say you'll need to spend £400 on rectification - on a £295 car, whut?
