Re: Guy Making Fuel Filler Pipes on ebay

Update to this, he has stopped making them. Too expensive to buy the components, too time consuming to make and not enough demand.

Re: MK1 Vitesse Genuine I think not.

No one has mentioned insurance. When I converted a Mk2b Vitesse using Mk2a 827 Sterling auto running gear many insurance companies would not quote on it. Some quoted silly money and one or two quoted high. Insurers do not like deviation. If the DVLA are not notified of the change then the MOT statio...

Re: 827 Valuation/Possible Sale for Parts

Nothing you have mentioned is beyond the scope of a reasonably keen DIY enthusiast but from your post I gather that you are either not too mechanically minded or too busy with humanoid parasite to tackle the car. In which case you will need to post pictures for a valuation but off the top of my head...

Easy repair, if you can get hold of a door.
Has that one got the Persian blue leather and dash?

Re: G58EOV - 1990 820si Fastback only 12K miles

That’s been doing the rounds for a while.
Sad really, the 800 is still a much unloved classic.
Says it has a KPH speedo, which if it does not have MPH as well is illegal.

Re: Mk I Rover 827 Vitesse Fastback £150

Sadly even at that price you would be buying a lot of work. Minimum of disks/pads/callipers/battery/tyres/radiator/cam belt/water pump and rear door screen if you can find one plus lots and lots of man hours. I did consider it, but then the reality of an Sli project that I still have in a lock up an...

Re: What would you buy?

Octavia – available in 4x4 plus the top of the range Laurin and Klemet is better than the Sterling was or Volvo, the v40 sport lux estate is similarly equipped but does perhaps fall into the lifestyle category.

And for that stupid price he expects the buyer to foot the bill to return the car to standard wheels.

Did I fall about laughing when I saw those prices. :lol: For that kind of money I would far rather have a Lexus LS400/430.

Ever considered a Vortex GTR Brad?
With all your spares you could easily make a good one.
Richard Hammond was impressed by the prototype

Re: 1987 820Se D480NFU

As Mo says. Don’t buy it. It doesn’t meet your list of desires so it’ll just end up being a money pit that you resent. These early ones weren’t good anyway. They suffered from very dodgy heater switches that melted and failed. Poor joints on the wiper arms that wasn’t properly fixed until the Mk2 ca...
