Rover 75 Tourer CDTI Connoisseur SE (MK 2)

Default New Arrival in a week or two

Evening All,

Today has been a good day!!!

Earlier today I put a deposit down on a very nice R75 Mk2 (my first) CDTI in Sky Blue (paint code: JHI), I believe its Connoisseur or Connoisseur SE
Although I currently have a saloon (R75 cdt), I have looking for a good Tourer/ZTT for a while which will be a “Keeper”.
Also, as we are looking to re-locate to Bishop Auckland in the near future, I have managed to convince my with I “need” a Tourer or ZTT to move furniture etc!!! (this will be my 5th 75/ZT)

Anyway to the car…

It has got Full Service history (12 Stamps), and the clutch has recently been replaced, and from the photos it is clear the car has been well looked after by a local elderly gentlemen who part exchanged it for something small after his wife died. The car dealers based in Garstang (between Preston & Lancaster) were able do a “Part Ex on a Part Ex”, admittedly I didn’t get a huge amount for my saloon, but it was more for convenience’s sake as we already have two daughter’s cars & my wife’s car at home. Also, I didn’t have the heart to scrap the saloon as it has been great over the last 8 months.

Is there anywhere I can confirm the build data/spec (unfortunately the MG Rover build info site is not working)

Cheers

Maurice

That looks very nice indeed, well done on your purchase.

I think you'll find the colour is know as Ski Blue (JHI).

I don't think the MG Rover build info site has been working for a while.
