What other cars get this attention?

I must admit I seem to get quite a reaction from people when either my Rover 75 http://i893.photobucket.com/albums/ac137/montytom/20161001_164934_zps4gtzd7be.jpg People come up and talk about the car saying how lovely it looks.

Re: drivers window switch pack urgently needed

That's a shame I was down your way last week but hadn't seen this request - I have a box load which I think were displayed in a previous thread and could have brought them to you for testing..... I'll have a look to see what is there - there may be one that has been marked as 'tested' that I can se...

Re: drivers window switch pack urgently needed

Thanks everybody. To be honest I'm rubbish at doing things like this and I'll muck it up. I also spend all week away from home so the few hours I do finally get I'd rather just be driving it. Sorry if that sounds sarcastic it's not my intention. Thanks if you could let me know about one that would b...

drivers window switch pack urgently needed

As above mine has a dodgy drivers window switch.
Please has anyone got one they are willing to sell? Mine has the four electric windows and it's grey in colour.
Thanks in advance Thomas

Yes they are bad, when I park at work in the works carpark I park over the white paint at the end of the car park so as to get less chance of dents

Re: Another vitesse now on the road

Well done Thomas! A word to the wise - leave it at home until "silly season" is over! Between mine and a friends 827s, we've notched up 5 hits this week, all while we've been away from our cars and they've been parked! :evil: :evil: :evil: It would be soul destroying if yours was hit at any point, ...

Re: abs light problem diagnostic not working

Very happy boy now, Went out after my dad rang me while on lunch"check all the fuses under the dash"he said.
