High performance, good looks and sensible
When the car was first acquired, the gearbox was quite noisy, however, the garage which supplied it, fitted a brand new gearbox and clutch free of charge.
This car is very much better than my previous one.
It travels very quickly, and I have been in danger of getting speeding fines several times. This is thanks to the high performing 1400cc, 16v DOHC K-Series MPi engine.
The standard stereo was pretty poor, but this was soon resolved with a Sony CD head unit and Alpine speakers.
It looks sporty and aerodynamic, and the metallic paint scrubs up well.
It is pretty economical, and the tank holds about £30 at current prices (74.9p).
I would recomend a Rover 214Si to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
