Hi W4RDT. Welcome to AO.

One question, how do you modify a Rover 25?

Was it cushions on the rear seat, box of tissues on the parcel shelf & a big bag of Werthers Originals in the glove box?

Re: hi

Welcome W4RDT,

Nice 147, love those wheels aswell. Had a Rover myself, 416 Tourer, one of the last with the 25 dash and seats in it, will always remember it for the day it trounced a Z3 1.9 on the road from Banbury up to Coventry. I like what you did to the 25, but now enjoy being one of the Alfisti, different, fast and stylish

Regards and enjoy the banter

Phil

Re: hi

Welcome to AO - from another ex-Rover owner (a 200 and a 25 - not modded)

I have to say, I quite like what you did to the 25 - understated and agressive at the same time.

Enjoy the 147! Thanks for the pic - lovely alloys

Re: hi

Welcom to the forum. Love the 147 in black with those wheels .

IMHO I thought your Rover was over the top Got any plans for the Alfa other than the suspension?

Re: hi

Hello! Nice 147 - liked the quad exhaust on the old Rover - but the 147 blows it away Keep those wheels, but it's sitting a bit high, lower it a few inches
