Hi, 75´s or Mg´s living in Spain

I just decide to create this thread to all of you living in Spain for some reasons:

First of all, we share the same love for our vehicles and after all these years I have to realize that there's no section where we can help each other breaking the language barrier. Questions and answers in both languages..!!!

I´m for sure that we have a lot of spare parts that sometimes are hard to find and they are just hanging around on our storage area. Let´s see what we need and who have it locally.

Special tools for share nearby. Some of us are weekend mechanics.

Get together for a beer and tapa´s, why not.

So, let´s see what we have or need from each other just to have our British cars running as new.

Kind regards

Joel Antonio

Default Hola!

We have travelled around Spain fairly often over the past 5 years (motorhome, not the Rover 75) and see the occasional 75 or MG.
I've noticed a few where the paint has been damaged by what must be the strong sunshine. Usually the darker colours. A problem we don't have as much in the UK!

Blackrose .... Having stayed at Camping El Jardin a few times (just north of Alicante, just south of El Campello) I should pop into the scrapyard you mention for a quick look!
Regards
John

Hemos viajado por España con bastante frecuencia en los últimos 5 años (autocaravana, no la Rover 75) y vemos ocasionalmente 75 o MG.
He notado algunos donde la pintura ha sido dañada por lo que debe ser el fuerte sol. Por lo general, los colores más oscuros. ¡Un problema que no tenemos tanto en el Reino Unido!

Blackrose ... Después de haberme alojado en el Camping El Jardín varias veces (justo al norte de Alicante, al sur de El Campello), ¡debería ir al depósito de chatarra que mencionas para echar un vistazo!
Saludos
Juan

Hi John:

Please to hear about you running around into our "backyard".

Yes, sunshine kills darker colors on our Rover´s, but I might say that there few reasons why for example, some owners have to left their car on the street because they don´t have a garage, also no paint care ej. regular wash & polish.

That´s on one side, others including my self have the benefit of a garage and like to have our babies in top-notch condition including the paint.

About scrap yards, there are several around Spain, but not all they have Rover 75´s. There´s one in Madrid the biggest in Spain, where you can find almost every bit that you´re looking for, but it´s very expensive, I rather buy it new from UK known suppliers.

Cheers...!!!!

Grout, I think it's gone to the crusher. I'll check in 3 weeks when I'm back.

John, if you are ever down this way in the motorhome again feel free to drop in and stay for a few days, we have space, and a pool

Hola Cántabro:

Buenos días, por fin alguien del reino del norte, muchas gracias por unirte al hilo. Yo me he vuelto un amante de los Rover 75 actualmente tengo 3 y voy a comprar el cuarto aunque venderé uno de ellos por ser cajas de cambio manual.

Saludos cordiales
Joel Antonio

Hello Cantabrian:

Good morning, finally someone from the northern kingdom, thank you very much for joining the thread. I have become a lover of the Rover 75 currently I have 3 and I will buy the room although I will sell one of them for being manual gearboxes.

Best regards
Joel Antonio

Hola Cántabro:

Yo estoy vendiéndo uno con la caja de cambios manual. Más que nada porque me voy a comprar otro que es automático tambíen. Todos los que tengo son de segunda mano, no tuve la oportunidad de comprar uno nuevo... llegué tarde a la fiesta (2007). Eso sí van de maravilla, las cositas que les sale las voy arreglando yo mismo, me gusta la mecánica de fin de semana.

Saludos cordiales Joel Antonio.

Hello Cantabrian:

I am selling one with the manual gearbox . More than anything because I'm going to buy another one that is automatic too . All I have are second-hand, I didn't have the opportunity to buy a new one ... I was late for the party (2007). Of course they are going great, the little things that come out I fix them myself, I like the mechanics of the weekend.

Best regards Joel Antonio.
