  1. Heated seats, sunroof and cruise as well, by the looks of it. Should have dropped him a note myself. Those seats look fantastic. Did like my old R75's.
  2. Few common issues with the R75 you might need to check. Eg rear boot leaks, especially if kept in garage but might just need an Italian tune up. Weirdly bought the wife's focus from the R75 forum. Had it about 5 years now, y reg, and had just over 20k on the clock when purchased. Still going strong now at 70k and has been one of best purchases ever made. Ours is an Auto and got the feeling never revved above 2k, but soon freed up.
  3. Not sure if the link will work, but £1900 for a garaged one owner Rover 75 with under 10K mileage seems like a bargain. If it was an Auto, I'd probably be heading to Cambridge https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?p=2917573#post2917573
  4. Worth it for the scary Subaru content near the end...
  5. Please say you video'd the jet wash, as looks a lot better already.
  6. Just changed contact details for Ceri in my phone accordingly...
  7. Had two as well. Both estates and father in law had a 1.6 hatch, but loved my GL5's. Seller history not the best, looks as though he does not set a reserve and then does not sell if he wants more. One to keep an eye on though... (Think I might still have a set of roof bars in the garage 😂)
  8. Just looked at granny above. Auto but three pedals??? Think they have stuck the brake and clutch "steps" both to the Auto brake pedal.
  9. First dibs when decide to sell on
  10. Blimey o reilly. An R as well. Looks really nice. First impressions?
  11. Problem is the Jag is running on 2 cylinders and the Fiat........
  12. Owned two and would adore another. Still say best manual gearbox I've ever owned.
  13. Pre 2001 over 1549 cc is £280. After 2001 on emissions, but don't know what emissions would be on this one for comparison.
  14. Really loving my A4, so imagine this would be a great steer.
  15. Yep, I thought £48.50 fitted for Michelins was a good price,
  16. Aware this will be a bit niche as most people are not members, and then most would not need 4 tyres, but thought would mention it on here just in case. (also offer might only be on my tyre size) Wanted to get a couple of tyres for the Audi just purchased and ended up on costco site. Michelins and Good Years have just under £94 off a set of 4, and includes free fitting. Costco purchase price £194, Black circles for same tyres £272 Seemed a good deal, so thought would mention it. (And I dont work for Cost co)
  17. As above, was just about to ask same question regarding who's online being collapsible, or smaller font at bottom of page.
  18. Annoyingly due to moving house, Jags are no longer an option. Too long for the garage, and also my parking space. (Overhangs into single track road used by residents to reach their own space) Please someone buy this as it looks a beauty and can confirm they drive fantastic.
  19. Even though trying to get rid of cars, still browse the forums and eBay as I'm an addict always on the look out for a good deal. 😁 The number of sellers currently selling a car at a discount as MOT expired has increased,. What it should read is it's catastrophically failed it's MOT and I need to sell. Do they not realise re MOT history check is there for all to see. Latest was a Jag at a good price but MOT expired, is actually a Jag at what might still be a good price, but with a horrendous MOT failure less than a month ago. Needing tyres, welding and emissions sorting out, so not going to be a cheap fix Just annoys me that people seem to be taking the piss somewhat, and someone might get caught. Rant over.
  20. Fine looking thing. Sure you will love it. Just make sure you do the cable bonnet release cable tie fix, as can cause issues if not done. Two minute job, can save a world of pain. Might have a spare R75 haynes if you want it. , will go and have a look.
  21. Looks like advert has been changed multiple times. Also car in Walsall, seller in London???
