So the Vitesse has gone...

To be replaced by a Rover 620ti - same turbocharged engine, with a bit more power (just on 200bhp) in good old BRG! I've added white dials, an Induction kit and a MotoBuild exhaust. Certainly a better handling car with the lower ride height as standard, but, I couldn't help myself - I've had it lowered even further! It scrapes the exhaust over ramps now, and people complain it's dificult to climb up out of, but with the standard gas shocks the handling is a whole lot better, eclipsing the old Vitesse. Just a shame it seems so hard to some people (not me!)

Future plans include a Stainless Steel mesh grill - which I've got pukka Steel for (50 for a small sheet - I must be mad/loaded/stupid) I just need to trim it and find a good bodyshop to de-chrome and spray the surround. Then, spoiler, skirts etc.

 

As soon as I've washed it (alright, when the Car wash opens) I'll get some pics for ya...

And now the Ti has gone...

Yeah, I've gone and got myself an MG ZT 190+, in Solar Red, just like the pics below.... Totally different to drive, 2.5l V6 with 'just' 190bhp. Has a real Gentlemans Club feel about it though, and it is deceptively quick, good for 140mph!
