All I get when I click on the link is some vote about has-been British Leyland/Honda motors

I know there are currently two Surveys running. The MG one and the EVO7 - both are running randomly - guess I'll switch the MG one off for a while.

Hehe, yes I wish that Rover could get their act together. A UK designed and built 180hp hatchback or 250hp saloon with the qualities we know and love from our Mitsubishis like they are proposing would certainly make me consider one.

At the moment though they still suffer fom an 'old man' image (no offence! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > ) and they don't seem to be in fashion with the motoring press, although the 75 seems to be better in that respect (it arrived at a bad time though).

Here in the UK we certainly have the depth of talent required to make outstanding sports saloons (witness the abundance of specialist manufacturers and racing firms), but the way I see it, Rover has never had big enough balls to do a full-on sports job with any of their models. Strange, when getting respect from Car, Autocar etc. is the best way of raising a brand in the doldrums and selling more motors (ref. Subaru's sales figures 1990-2000).

It's not as if the formula is difficult to grasp - One family car, 200|PLS|bhp, 4WD - name me one car that fits that description from the last 20 years that has not been a critical and sales success?

Are you listening Rover??? [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
