You can certainly get a 45 saloon in 2.0 V6 flavour, struggle to find a hatch version though!
Mg rover stated 90k/6 years in the handbooks afaik ... Mine had a belt (apparently) at 45k ish and is now on 95562. Not sure if it means it's ready or not, if it snaps then mega doom ... If I get it done at a garage it's about £700 +/- a bit! Anyone would think that they are hard to change :D

 

Is this the case only for the 45? I've been looking into it for my 75 and there are companies quoting fixed price of around £450-500.

The free Rover pens mark a departure from the complimentary matches they gave out with the Rover 200 series. Because, 'above all, it is a Rover...'

What exactly is the issue with the Jatco from Brush Strokes box? Is it unreliable or just utter shite in service?

I believe the Shatco is a decent box but in this case the shift points aren't too well matched to the power delivery of the 2.0 v6.

She drives a silver Vauxhall Corsa. She has default transport, the one you end up with if you have no input into the decision.

Her opinion counts for shit. That's a fine looking car.

Is the higher number plate positioning on these V6 45s because of cooling issues or something (very slightly less restricted airflow) or just a cheap as chips "that'll do" way of making it slightly distiguishable from a 4 cylinder?
