Hello all, just joined the forum.

After retiring I bought myself an MGTF for fun,but I needed a car for family type transport, had a company car for many years and of course that was returned when I finished work.
So had a good look around and came to the conclusion that I needed a Rover 75 Connoisseur SE 4dr 2.5 V6 Auto, truthfully it wasn't a hard decision as I've always liked and admired them.
So came up with this one, it has all the bells and whistles it can have and am pleased to say it's the top of the range model (bragging here, never thought I'd be able to afford such a car)

Just a few pictures of the beast.

Memory seats, power folds. And now have floor mats in it.

Image
Full HK setup etc.

I now have a cap for the windsreen washer bottle.

But would like a badge for the engine cover. Suspect I'll have to pickup another cover from breakers.

Oh my, the expence, where will all end.
Ian

Igorth thtitch you up.

Looks to be in really fine condition from the pics, that V6 married to the auto box really is such a sweet combination.

Welcome to the Community. :)

Looks like a nice car (even with a wooden steering wheel). I wish you trouble free motoring.

Had the beast 12 months now and I am a member of the other forums, only recently found this one.
Plenum's all sorted some time ago, and fans no problems that I can find.
Arrrr yes hand break, cra-- sorry not good, have seen the posts re compensator and intend to order one to fix my problem, (Am I correct it is you that does the modified one, could you PM re payment, I can do paypal, if thats the way to go)
Only problem so far was the swimming pool footwells when first bought, (sunroof drains) cost to fix nil, time to fix 5 min, time to dry out carpets two weeks.
Arr, the fun you can have when purchasing second hand.
