Thought i might aswell admit my sins to everyone and admit that i sold the coupe for an MG ZS 180 v6. I test drove the v6 coupe and it was a very nice car, good build, pretty good pace, and looked amazin. But when i test drove this it was insane.

Its been remapped and is insanely quick, the pull you get after 3500 revs in amazin. But the main point is the handleing, it has to have the best grip out of any fwd cars on the market, glides round corners at 110 lol (not that i do that sort of thing lol). I loved the coupe and still think it is one of the best looking cars you can buy for its price but hell, the mg is just plain fun :D , i'll still keep in touch tho.

Lol its hard to care about repair bills when im having so much fun in it :lol . But to be honest the main problem people were having with rovers are the head gaskits blowing, and the v6 isnt affected by this so ....... :mrgreen: , there can be a problem with the vis boxes and the plenum but they are fine on this car.

it'll go the way of all the other rover 400's its 8 yrs old now, it wont last much longer and when it does start to go it'll really go, and then you'll wish you had got the coupe.
