2004 Rover 25 Streetwise IMPORTANT UPDATE PLEASE CHECK IN!

Recommended Posts

Ok I've seen something silly to buy and I would like to sell this first.

 

It's done a shade over 117k and there isn't a lot of history to show for it, last stamp in the book is a few years ago.

 

In my ownership, it's had new front pads and the tailgate loom has had a bit of rewiring. I unplugged the alarm's interior sensor as it was faulty.

 

I've covered probably 2000 miles in the car since I bought it, and it has been faultless, well other than the front badge falling off at some point anyhow.

 

It's got about 3 months mot left to run, i wouldn't like to guess at if it'd pass another without any work, but if a buyer wants to know for sure, I'd happily have it tested at their cost.

 

It is pretty scruffy and has a "damage" marker on the logbook (rear bumper has been replaced at some point, as was the front a few years ago due to an interaction with a motorcyclist).

 

It's a 1.4 K series, it had a head gasket and heater matrix 4 or 5 years back at the garage I work at, the temp needle never bothers the top half of the gauge.

 

What else can I say? It's a rough example of a late Rover... Cheap, honest, transportation.

As always, I can collect buyers from Lincoln or Boston railway stations, or Wainfleet if using National Express.

Ok I'm going to bring this back up to the top, it's currently MOT'd until November 4th, however I'm going to see about checking it over for an early test this week, so please if you are interested speak now, with a full ticket it'll be £340 or £275 as is.

 

Realistically, raffle tickets (assuming it gets a fresh mot) will be £7 each.

Ok I had it on the emissions machine today and the remaining guts in the cat are enough to satisfy an MOT tester, with that in mind it's mot is booked for tomorrow.
 
So to summarise, all being well 12 Months MOT, it's rough body wise, new pads a month ago, gear linkage stiff sometimes, 2 sets of keys & fobs.

 

It's located in south Lincolnshire, nearest stations are Lincoln or Boston, and I'm happy to collect from either, oh hey, whilst you are thinking of heading this way, why not augment your new Rover with some tat?
 
£7 gets you in, and I'll even give the poor bastard lucky new owner a limited edition* Autoshite dealer sticker!

The day before Chumalongadingdong ... of course I'll be at the garage. I shall doubtless be trying to fix whatever vehicle I have decided to take on the 300 mile round trip the next day.

If you're gonna pop round to the garage next weekend mate I can give you cash monies for the roffle tix if you want.

I have addressed the missing badge from the front end, as I couldn't be arsed to find a proper one, this is now filling the space:

A most worthy addition I'm sure you'll agree, and a handy component for bringing this back onto the front page. :D

      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.






    • By TheDoctor
      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Thinking roffling at Tenner a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.
