1995 Rover - Austin 200 214Si 1.4 petrol from UK and Ireland
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
