1991 Rover - Austin 200 216 GTi 1.6 twin cam from UK and Ireland
More aggressive than similarly pitched cars
Distirbutor needed replacing at 75,000.
Changed the timing belt at 70,000.
Petrol tank holed at 80,000.
Onto my third set of front discs.
New bushes in the rear suspension linkages.
Play in the CV joints at 85,000.
A very reliable engine that can be taken to the 7250 rpm red line quite comfortably, very revvy with little power below 3000 rpm, likes to drink petrol but what GTi doesn't?
Body finish could be a bit better, excellent with sticky rubber.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
