Advantages: Performance, Looks, Equipment
Disadvantages: Electrical Faults

I've always been a fan of large saloon cars, and to be honest, this is one of the best - although, unfortunately, also one of the worst! I originally purchased an L plate 820. Mine was the Vitesse, which was a 2.0i turbocharged engine. I'll start ...

Advantages: COMFORTABLE, HIGH SPECIFICATION RELIABLE

Since 1986 when Rover introduced this luxury family classic, there have been many changes. The angular styling of 1986 was changed in 1992 with the introduction of the mark 2. This model had a more curved boot and the bonnet design was changed to incorp ...
