Hello there,

I have for sale my Rover VVC Coupe, in charcoal. It's been a fantastic car for me, but it's been standing in a car park for nearly a year now as i've had a work van to use instead, and I've now just bought a new car so it'll have to go.

For the MOT, all it required was new brake pads on the front - however I bought new pads and discs for the front and rear. And it also had a report of the handbrake not working properly - I presume the rear calipers needed taking apart and reassembling with some grease to make them good, but I could be wrong. I bought a handbrake cable for both sides just incase. And these will be included with the sale (think the total cost of all that was about £120 or so, sigh)... I was going to do the repairs myself but I simply cannot be arsed.

Before that, it was a super reliable car and didnt break down once, engine pulls well and sounds great.

It has some mods, alongside the full cream leather interior.

stainless cat back system on it, sounds great.
17" oz superturismo alloy wheels with good tyres (wheels could use a refurb)
A K&N filter bolted to the throttle body
52mm tb
gmax suspension kit (springs and shocks)

I'm just posting for initial interest at the moment, as I can't remember details about the mileage etc. But I'm open to offers on the whole car, it could use a proper clean inside (mold from being stood still has set in a bit so could use an airing) but the bodywork was in great condition with only the usual rust by the rear wheels and arches - and of course the bubbling spoiler.

I'm not that bothered about raising a lot of cash for it, rather sell it to someone than face the scrapyard as I need to move the car. And it's a very simple MOT fix... Perhaps I could arrange to have it transported to my house and do the brakes when I get some time (unlikely) as it's only an afternoon away from passing its MOT.

The car is being stored in the Red Bank area of Manchester city centre, parked in a secure car park at the old gym I used to work at. I haven't been back to it in a few months. Theres an MOT station just up the road from where its kept (north st garages I think it is), and its where I took it for its MOT.

If you could do £300, no haggling or messing about I'll let it go for that.

This is still for sale, strangely. It's been stored in the same location since then, it's picked up a few scrapes and a broken glass top in its time there, which is a shame - nor do I have a V5 atm, and I've misplaced the keys. (I might have the keys stored at the unit but would need to find them)

Just wondered if anyone has any interest in this, considering its not been started in a few years, before it goes to the big scrapyard in the sky. It was running great before I took it off the road to redo all the brakes then I bought another car.

Incase I miss a reply, and you're interested... mail me instead:

i'll happily get this up and working again for you, replace all the locks ect and new roof glass and its only £25 for the v62 for to get a log book in your name.

You may stand a chance of selling it then.

all you need to do is get it to sk7 4js
