1997 Rover - Austin 200 Si 1.4 twin cam 16v from UK and Ireland
One for those with a heavy right foot
The N/S wing mirror was broken when I got the car and rover wanted £60 for a new one!
This car is incredibly fast for a 1.4! it has the performance of a 1.6 - 1.8 when I drive with a heavy right foot. The handling took some getting used to as my previous cars didn't have power-steering. Also the car has too much over-steer when pushed for my liking. This will soon be sorted when it will be lowered. The driving position is spot on, but the position of the radio is hard to function due to the gear-stick being so close when in 3rd or 5th gears. Apart from that, I love this car, and in British Racing Green looks the part.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
