Re: Why does my wiper catch on the bonnet

I’ve had a few R8’s and only had the problem on the early models. Later M/N reg ones never had this issue.

I fixed it on my low mileage 416 by swapping the wiper arms from an M reg 216 that was being broken for spares.

My Rover is in really good condition and has only done 40K. It is my daily driver. I bought it from the Allegro man in Sowerby ...

The photographer said he would get copies of the photos to the club - how do we get hold of them?

Re: FS; Early 216 GSi

The omission of the chrome wind deflector was a cost cutting move. They must have cost all of about £5 each! ...Multiplied by 1 million car sales = £5 million in additional profit - not to be sneezed at. I'm sure motor manufacturers "penny pinch" on every part of a car as the impact on profits when...

Fourway electric windows & full leather seats I think; an electric sunroof with a wind deflector was standard on a GSi at a guess.
Thanks Tim

Funnily enough my Tourer doesn’t have a chrome wind deflector on the sunroof, but all my previous R8’s within sunroofs have.

An 'J' registration with all the options ticked; so that's 14" lattice alloys, ALB , power steering, auto slushbox, full leather, 4 way electric windows, metalic paint, mud flaps, mats and a bobbing simpering salesman I expect, would have cost you... £18,450 at December 1991 prices [ probably buy a...
