Thread not for the dedicated Enthusiast ;)

Post  Sambomonkee on 17/4/2013, 11:36 pm

Just bought this as a donor car for the turbo,

http://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/rover-coupe-218-vvc-1998-96000miles/1015560923#gallery-item-full-1

Some may say its too good to do it too, but hay I think the turbo is more worthwhile.

I will have the wings, bonnet, both bumpers boot and spoiler off it, I will also take the wheels as that are perfect and have decent rubber.

Now the question is after that

1. Should I break the rest of the car, and kill a coupe to save others
2. Put the not so good panels off the turbo on it, with is wheels and sell it cheap as a project (IE 200 notes)

Be a shame to let it go to waste in parts if it can be salvaged, put the parts off the Turbo on to it and sell it on for someone else to make use from it.

I will but, I bet Colins life on it, that I don't get a single bite, even at 200 pounds as a project car ;(.

Got it, bit of surprise was that it comes with a rolling road printout at 166bhp !!!, pretty high for a 143vvc, not sure what work is done to it.

Anyway, got quite a few niggly little things with it, but it drives really well, better than any ZR or ZS I have driven. Feels a bit like a TF with a roof. The suspension on it so low, that it bottomed out on big bumps, it would be great on the track though.

The reason for the MOT failure was emissions, and I think its over fueling quite alot. No matter, on to swapping all the nice pieces over.
