It is a genuine factory turbo, reg L28FKM

Original engine and gear box, the head was changed out but I do still have the original (even has the original Radio and CD changer under the passenger seat)

Would probably be looking around £2500.00 for everything.

Parts that would be included are: (these are all new and genuine)

Both rear quarters + one spare (can't remember what side it is)
Boot
Rear spoiler
Bonnet
Driver side door
Passenger side door skin
Both Sills
Rear Bumper
Rear spoiler
Some of the grey rubbing trim (will need to check which bits).
Steering Wheel
Headlights (I think both need to check)
Front Indicators (I think both need to check)
Rear GSI and Turbo Badges
Rear exhaust box with chrome trim
If think I have both wing mirrors (100% have both covers)
Both rear spats with mounts.

Other parts which would come with the car would be:
Radtech radiator (new) however it needs the frame modified as it has the mount points in the wrong place and I only realised a year after a got it :-(
Billet control arms
Top Mounts with bearings
Used and badly painted front bumper
I also have around 11 Turbo alloys and a set of BRM alloys (fitted atm)

At the moment the car has fitted:
Apexi AVCR Boost Controller
T28R
Loads of ploy bushes

I was part way through getting some stuff powder coated

These parts include:
Both anti rollbars (silver) these also have new ploy bushes.
anti roll bar mounts (black)
Rad Frame (black)
Fan Frame (black) Bolt broke off in the frame and needs to drilled out.

I have a quite a few more parts which I will also include (throttle bodies, exhaust manifolds etc etc.

As the car stands at the moment

It has new front disks and pads fitted brakes, need bleeding and the rear drivers side handbrake cable pin needs replacing (have it).
The engine leaks oil (possibly rear seals) but it did run.
The turbo has a snapped bolt in it and one of the threads is stripped.
The down pipe I bought doesn't line up (so probably junk) has a new o2 sensor fitted though.
Gas shocks need a refurb they are leaking.
Interior is in very good condition apart from the roof lining has dropped at the back and a part of the stitching has come away on the top of the back seat.
Battery to the boot conversion is not the best.
All water pipes are stainless
Silicon Pipes all over
Front and rear Strut braces.

I have owned this car for over 12 years I think, it has been used a lot for trackdays and has not had any easy life.

The car is in no way drivable so you will need to trailer it, you will also need a van for all the parts.

Some more info here and a few pictures:

If you are interested, I'm happy to talk.

Shame to see all these long term rover owners selling up :(

FWIW you may as well keep it!

Best of luck with whatever you decide.
