Not sure if there's going to be much (if any) interest in this on here, but as it's both free of charge and free of mongs I thought it was worth a try.
I mentioned this thing briefly in the News 24 thread when I bought it. I've since made a half-hearted attempt to tidy it up a bit, but if I'm honest it does bugger all for me and I could put the cash to better use at the moment.
It's a 1.8 Design, so fairly high up the Disastra range, and thus gets alloys, half leather, aircon, auto lights, electric windows all round etc., but no climate or cruise. It goes OK, although as with most modern* petrols it needs revving to get the best out of it.
Good bits are that it goes, everything seems to work bar the interior lights (even the aircon is cold, although the compressor is a bit noisy when it's running), interior is in fairly good nick, tyres are all OK and decent makes, it has a decent (if aftermarket) stereo. I've treated it to new wiper blades (they didn't cost me anything, they were in the boot of the Rover when I bought it).
Bad bits - it's a bit scruffy, with various scuffs, a dent in the tailgate and a nasty scratch on the osf wing (which I've inexpertly touched up), which is also bubbling up a bit round the arch. It was a Cat C at some point in the past (appears to have had a bump on the osf, hence the bubbling on the wing which has presumably been resprayed). One of the tailgate struts has come off so the tailgate doesn't stay open on its own, and there's a clonk from the nsf suspension over bumps so will probably need a bush or two for its next test. No history with it.
I did briefly investigate why the interior lights weren't working - I got as far as checking bulbs and the fuse, all of which are fine. With moderns though it seems that sometimes the fuses don't quite protect the circuits that the handbook says they do - viz my old A3, on which the speedo came back to life when I replaced the reversing light fuse. I couldn't be arsed to check all the fuses.
Mileage is just over 100K (rolled over on the way back from picking it up) and it's MOT'd until late October. In NE Norfolk as always.
