As recently as last year! Always disappointing when you see one and incorrectly assume that it's the V8.

At least the modern one was turbocharged though so had half a chance of getting out of its own way.  The Fox body Mustang with a 2.3 NA Pinto and autobox was dire.

Is that as bASe as they get? Seems to have some interior timber although not on the passenger side dash...

Is there a way we can force a random AS person to buy this? I want to hear about the ownership experience without actually having to do any work. 

No need to force us on it, Consider it done! ;)

If all goes well will probably be up for a roffle in a couple months! Will update my thread on it!

Honestly looks alright to me. Just a shame it's about 180 miles from me. Haha.

Free delivery if you pay the screen price, apparently....I'd like to see some one ask if they'll honour that tbh!

Oh, they get better than that! The 'i' didn't have wood in the doors, alloy wheels or electric windows in the rear. The 'Si' (as per the advert) doesn't have wood on the dash passenger side because it has an airbag instead. 

Ah, I feel I need to wade in and add some geekery here.

Wot Austin-Rover says is certainly true of the Mk1s; Base, "i" and "e" were as described, right down to having manual door mirrors. 

The Mk2 Si added alloy wheels and a CD autochanger over base i. By that time the entire range had Climate, leccy windahs all round etc, but not even the Sterling or Vitesse had a fuel computer any more. All models had bits of wood in all the usual places, but it is a huge shame that the wood-garnished passenger-side shelf mantlepiece disappeared across the range when the passenger airbag disappeared, though.

I'll go away now.

I was under the impression that the I had manual aircon even till then end. But I don't see many late I cars. I'm happy this SI has (or I hope it has) the digital climate control, as its really fun to push the buttons and listen to it beep. 😅

It was no longer worth Rover offering two different systems by that stage. Essentially they were making one core model, just bolting extra bits in depending on spec. So, while the Sterling had electric seats, they were just bolt-in items with the controls on the side, rather than in the centre console with bespoke switchgear like in the Mk1.  The beep is fantastic, though! And I love the tiny orange-lit LCD readout.

So if I was too find a sterling interior, their is a strong chance of their being the loom for the electric seats under the carpet? If so that would be cool, it's just a shame the four cylinder models never seemed to come with cruise control but I heard you can fit a setup from a 220/420!

No pic Mondeo MK2, 2.0 GLX flavour. Rough but £495, Nuneaton. 

"Been told the engine and gearbox are worth £495 for the. Anger racing lads"

Hmm.  I'm pretty sure my J-plate 820i had neither climate nor aircon...

I know there's a lot of love for these, especially among our Scotch friends. This one is a slug-matic 2.4 but it's pre-March 2001 and 106k on the clock. £895 Brum.

I think they're pretty terrible but as An Car they're probably ok, except thirsty and high tax so kind of defeats the object of cheap car.

2002 Mercedes CLK500, short mot, Merseyside. Cheap V8 £850

Sort of glad that's gone. The last two big Mercs I bought (S500 and S320 diesel) went wrong in spectacular/costly fashion.
