Firstly, I'm pleased to have found another rover group - being in New Zealand I have to work a bit harder to source info. :D

OK 2 cars, both I fear are falling away from memory or are dismissed as possibly being 'no interest'. I have a 1995 827 Coupe in Gold and a 1996 Sterling 827 Saloon (one of the last made before the model upgrade using the Rover engine) in Nightfire Red - so both have the Honda C27a engine. Both have just under 120k miles on the clock. Neither have rust etc being new to NZ for the Saloon and the Coupe being a Jap. import when almost new. Am using both pretty much every day/week and they are being serviced at 6 month intervals - I'm replacing parts with new (from Rimmers and/or Boxtel or XPart dealers) when necessary, the most recent being all 4 shocks on the Coupe and a pair of front on the Saloon. My intent is to ignore their 'market' value and keep them going in as best condition I can, especially the Coupe.

I have just developed a problem with the Saloon which at worst my end it's life - I found this group by looking at '', but more of that problem in a separate post. Apart from that, i'm pleased to have found another group
