Well, I'm throwing in the Rover towel.

 

1991 Rover 416GTi.

<copypasted description>
 

87k, new headgasket and cambelt, new fuel relay, K&N panel filter, stainless header and 2.5" exhaust (no cat required), valve stem seals done, little rot (worst is pictured). Paint is poor (front end rattlecanned - you all know why), but presentable from a few feet.

1991/J, runs well but currently misfires at low revs when up to temp (under investigation, if it takes a while to sell this may well get fixed). Runs well on the motorway but needs a slightly heavy foot around town else it struggles. Will get you home no problem, though.
Recent front tyres - Vredestein. 
Good condition Prussian Blue velour interior (rare factory optional leather delete). 4x electric windows and leather steering wheel. Three of the four original Rover floor mats are present. Headlining is good.
Wood heater control panel from a cabriolet, looks nice but has a lot of light bleeding through when lights are on. Can include original black panel.
Two spare alloy wheels.
MOT to August with very clean history.

Not sure if it's worth more as a car or in parts, but offers are encouraged as I need it gone to get something else. In a perfect world I'd want £450-500, but you could probably drive away for £400 1f609.png ;)

</copypasted description>

Er, yeah, you all know this car by now. Ideal WBOD? It's very good on the motorway, but might benefit from some Dynamat (other sound deadening is available). 

£400ish, will consider £6 roffle. Just need it gone really.

Pops made a good job of that paint

That exhaust must have cost nearly as much as the car Is up for sale at.

Yes, the spec is rare. HML says 27 416GTis left, 13 manual and 14 auto.

GTi was the launch 'sporty' model in 1990, and only lasted until the facelift around K/L plate.

It gets a twincam head for its RELIABLE HONDA ENGINE, four electric windows, a sunroof, leather seats as standard (but this one has no cost option velour instead), a leather steering wheel, and alloys. That's your lot.
Compared to a top spec Honda it's a bit pants really, but it's still a nice car.

Running issue has been tracked down to a duff throttle position sensor. This will hopefully be fixed soon.

So let's have a bump.
