The car that came back to me! The blue boomerang Rover 416Si

Advantages: Good looking. Good build quality. Easy to work on. A genuine workhorse, keeps going and going!
Disadvantages: Some parts are now difficult to find. May be kind of dull looking after a while.

...I have never been a person to chop and change my cars, mostly because of my financial commitments. I have only owned three cars since 1998, and two of them have been Roverís. Many people laugh at Rover vehicles, sometimes being termed ďthe poor mans BMWí, ...

Well, I love it.

Advantages: Features, build quality, performance.
Disadvantages: Handling in corners.
