I am very happy with it and is in very good condition and has been looked after by it's previous owners, Dawn said it drives lovely has 12 months MOT and 4 months TAX I think we had a bargain.

These 216's seem to be very thin on the ground these days. Good to see a nice tidy one, especially with the top spec. One to cosset I would think, assuming you want to see some of Rover's less well loved heritage kept in existance, and seeing as you have just bought it I assume you do!

indeed it's just a rebadged honda Concerto really, but like you say it's part of Rover's heritige and it's a lovely car to drive. We do indeed look at keeping this long term.

Slipping into anorak mode, it's actually a Ballade. Nice buy, Rich.
