:shock:

This vehicle lived in the village of North Stifford in South Essex which is close to Grays & Lakeside

The last time I saw it on the driveway of the house it was up for sale and cant recall seeing it since. Whether it still lives in North Stifford or if it now lives elsewhere (meaning someone actually handed MONEY over for this, there is no accounting for taste.....) I really couldnt say

No car  :sad:

V8's sound immense.

I can understand that, This one drove past me at a show last year with a stainless steel exhaust, it only had 30000 odd miles on the clock and was mint, I nearly jizzed in me pants.

The six pot SD1 would have been a fine car if they hadn't deliberately de-tuned the engines to keep the output below that of the V8 and if they hadn't have had the oil feed blockage problem to the cylinder head (which with modern oils isn't really an issue any more TBH). However the real problem with a 6 pot SD1 is there's no point in having one when you can have a V8. Simple as that. Better noise, more power with virtually no increase in fuel consumption. It's the engine the car was meant to have from the off. I loved my 2300S but it wasn't very reliable and it had the build quality of your average kit car. It was thouroughly enjoyable to drive most of the time though.

V8's sound immense. Hair on the back of your neck kind of thing. The 2.6's sound toss. That is all.

Um, not really. The 2.6 is unreliable as an unreliable thing. Oil pressure problems normally, quickly followed by the camshaft grinding itself into a drumstick. Mine had done under 50k when it first ate a camshaft. It was also gutless and awful on fuel. My V8 Vitesse would average 18 mpg around town, and up to 30 on a run (a figure I didn't believe at first, but it did it regularly) as long as it wasn't driven mentally. My 2600 SE would do 17.5 in town and 23 on a run - if driven incredibly gently. If it was driven at the same rate as the V8 it was 3-4 mpg worse than the V8.

The 2600 engine was notorious for oil starvation problems, like the 2300 it had a very small gallery which became blocked easily, during the 1980's my Dad worked for a company that supplied recon engines, he knew the part numbers for Rover 6's off the top of his head.

Inline with chavs driving barried Saxo Westcoasts. I hate the 'rat look', especially when it's done as badly on these!

this old girl has served its purpose with my family and is going to be really difficult to part with.

Yeah, part with it, after you've completely fucked it up. The only difficult part is trying to sell it on to someone with a sane mind, and doesn't wear a hood with a stupid side swept fringe and post-ironic clothing. Cunt. To the scrap yard.
Why don't these people leave cars alone, and just keep their scary obsessive trendfollowing to something less destructive and vile.

Is it wrong to like these? http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 3359401905 Still cant work out how to post the pics so advice welcome! Always liked these since I first went to the Earls Court motorshow in 1987. Didnt hurt that Seat had some VERY attractive women on their stand. Very tempted to bosh in a bid whilst Mrs Parky is away on hols. Be a nice surprise for her when she gets back! Always liked small square cars like these, Uno's and Pandas JUST NOTICED ITS A 903cc MODEL FTW. Revvy Fiat engine and probably tiny insurance. Brammy, one for you to put on the watchlist?

It must be just about the last unmodified Mk 1 Renault 5 Turbo in the kingdom! http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 1e59f2ead3 Looks pretty minty but two and a half large with no ticket - bit optimistic? Its hard to say as the last time I saw one of these on the road it looked as if it had spun through a Dimma bodykit factory before impacting with a large drum of neon green paint. What should an unmodified one be worth?

With an mot it would be worth easily £3-3.5k

So why not just MOT it then? Certainly with MOT I could see £2.5 - £3k ++ if its as good as the description. I'd love to be in a position to buy that and use it very sparingly and keep it garaged in mint condition. Probably worth a good bit more in five or ten years.

I read an interview with David Coulthard who said he had one of these years ago and wished he'd kept it. He also added he was keeping an eye out for a good one so Mr Coulthard if you happen to subscribe to Autoshite, then heres an opportunity.I have to agree with you Lobster, if spending £70 will net an additional £1000, thats a decent return on your investment. Maybe matey hasnt got the confidence to spend another £70 on it.I remember driving one of these back in 1990 when my sisters boyfriend at the time had one as a company car. Proper rocket and comfy too. For some reason he replaced it with a 1600 Sierra, never could understand why.
