If you have a British car you need all the community support you can get, especially a Rover.

Take the Austin Healey (please), the Australians were so impressed by its cracking pace and precison engineering they decided the cast iron engine was not fulfilling it's potential as a boat anchor and set about replacing it with something that wouldn't be compared with power ratings of a lawn mower engine:

YES....That's the point I've been trying (in vain) to raise. It's mainly Forum's that are the problem however. If somebody links to their own site/Forum...to me, that's advertising. By all means, link us to Google.com....or even howstuffworks.com, because these places, In my oppinion cant be deemed as adverts. C'mon, it's not as if they need hits lol

Ok, maybe I didn't use the right wording there lol....Google isn't a site I'd consider advertising, mainly because people dont advertise is as such...they, um.....recomend it for finding sites that they cant advertise...and howstuffworks is also for mechanicla reference etc...I tried explaining as best I could...hope I done myself justice lol

Just to remind you that the Rover 75 is a car made under the supervision and control of BMW when they owned the make. I've been driving it for 3 years now and can tell you that it's super. I have always been a BMW owner but when this car came out me and wife where sold. Paul
