It was fitted with the plastic wood dashboard.
No drivers grab handle.
No FBH.
Boot badge on plinth.
No rear badge on D post.
Stick on refelectors on doors.
No Rover badge on key fob.
Covers fitted to seat belt bolts.
Fitted with rear lamp access panels.

Must have taken quite a lot of compiling.

Just a couple of points though, my early Tourer built 5th June 2001 has the lower seatbelt plastic covers and the headrests have no embossed logo.

Excellent work Reebs - especially the addition of photos.

My Connie SE was built in September 2001 and, like Russ, mine does not have embossed head rests.

this is a fantastic post, have read once and will study later, a lot of it seems like penny pinching but probably added up to thousands saved, a pity though

I wonder what the cost differential was for the more minor deletions?

Seem almost pointless.........

I've saved this file as a ".pdf" file, for posterity... if anybody wants it......... Just ask That is with Reebs' permission
Hi could I have the PDF please!
That must have taken some time to put together well done

Thumbs up

A terrific post that surely deserves "sticky" status - makes a great companion to the "many colours" thread. Well done Reebs.

On the downside, it's a constant reminder of how many features are missing from my '75. I'm slowly getting them all (or most) put back though.

One last point - wasn't the carpets quality reduced at some point of the production run?

The carpets in my Dad's ZT-T are a bit pony and trap compared to the ones in my 75
