1) It had the Rover 75 2004 facelift grille and not the V8's imitation one. It did not have the oversized Roewe grille like in the picture herebelow (quite sure about that) and the front bumper was somewhat different from the one in the picture - closer to the facelift 75's).
2) It had a Brilliance Cars badge and not Roewe's.
Brilliance cars are considered here as "Affordable Luxury Cars", and the Galena (the one that does very bad in the crash test on Youtube) sells very well here (if they only knew...)
The car I saw did not have plates yet (not too un-common here), which means either it would be undergoing tests by the importer (a one off thing unless the tests are satisfactory but then cars do not need to have high specs to sell here) or it has been acquired by a client who was heading to the local equivalent of the DVLA to register the car and have it plated.
I will try to visit a Brilliance Cars showroom when I'd have some time and see what would come out.
Until then, all the best,
I miss you a lot Samarkand!
