Default Totally grateful to all of you

Hello to all.

Forgive me if my English is very bad, as I am using a translator to write here.

I have a rover 75 CDTI 131 diesel since 2009 that I bought in Spain, with such bad luck that when I bought it, shortly after, I had an engine problem in one of the cylinders.

The previous owner hid the problem from me. In the end I had to install the complete engine in an official workshop, which was better value than the repair. From that moment on I started a kind of love story with him.

I read countless forums everywhere until I came to yours. It must be said that here, in Spain, the valuation of this wonderful car is very bad according to all those who call themselves professional mechanics and that there is no support in networks like the one you do about it.

Since then, without knowing anything about mechanics, and reading your contributions, I can say that not only have I saved a huge amount of euros, but I can almost say that this rover is like an extension of me.

I have learned details of it, I repeat, through your contributions and my many readings, in addition to the famous Haynes manual, which is truly amazing how you, the English, know how to build vehicles unlike, for example, with what they do here in Spain and the lack of information they offer to users.

I just want to thank you for your work which is incredible.

P.D: I don't know if I can send a photo here, but I'll try.

Although not a Rover 75 owner, yet,
I am an old school Rover fan having owned in the seventies 2 x P4s
a 60 and 100, and then in the eighties a P5b saloon,
in between 79 and today around 8 Land Rover models, ranging from a V8 Hybrid I built myself through series 2,3, 90, Range Rover Classic, Discovery 2 and now the Freelander 2,

I've always admired the body design of the rover 75 Saloon with the classic lines sweeping through the rear wings,

My one concern is that maybe having owned so many LR's that my wife and I will find a saloon to low down for our use! (both in our late seventies)

Hi everyone.
I have joined as we have become custodians of my late father in laws 75, which he loved for 20 years. We will in due course be looking for a new carer, as unfortunately my '66 mgb and midget are hogging our garage space. My aim is to learn a bit more about it. The weirdest thing so far is how the milage on the 2016 MOT is 86499 miles, and a year later it is 56786. None of the family can remember anything to explain this...odd!

Welcome along, I would say the mileage issue is a typing error by the mot station, can you see a trend in previous mileages covered to back this up?
