just paid £600 for my third Rover 620ti, a p reg with 6 months tax and mot 95000 miles, new clutch, nice tight gearshif, an in dash dvd/cd player with 12" sub and 400w amp in boot with a good set of 17" rims and tyres. it drives like a dream and it's so much fun. for those that say it's not sporty well all the ones i have owned can easily live with scoobys and cosworths, if you don't believe this look at the performance figures and rolling excelleration times and all this without looking...

The Rover 620 is a fantatic vehicle and a cheap vehicle for what it is. This car I comfortable very fast good solid engine nice rev range. After a bit the gearbox starts whinning the gear selecter becomes sloppy and the old head gasket is a big problem stay away from the modified ones. (read more)

Lots of fast fun, torque steer you wouldnt believe. Probably too expensive to run now. Owned one some years ago, it was then quite new, it was unreliable on an epic scale. Brake discs, throttle body, thermostat, head gasket, even the drivers door window fell out! So glad it was insured on an extended warranty. They say you need deep pockets to own one, they aint kidding. (read more)

I have owned my Rover for 1 year, I have done a lot of work to it, I've put 17" rims, dump valve, induction kit, and a sports exhaust, I have also flushed the boot , I am putting LED under-car neon lighting on . My next step is to lower the car but I am having trouble finding sport shocks, I would recommend the car to any one. (read more)

Overall a fantastic car for the money. I bought my Rover 620Ti 98 R reg, 72K, T&T, FRSH for £300 with a slipping clutch. £100 and half a day later I`ve got the perfect street sleeper. Chavs in Novas beware. lol
No real problems so far, but the T series engine can destroy itself in short order if not looked after. Keep an eye on water and oil levels and be wary of the headgskets. They do tend to weep a bit of oil.
Interior is comfy and spacious with no nasty rattles. Half leather, Full... (read more)

I have owned my Rover 620Ti for a little over a year and have enjoyed every moment. The only fault I have is a rattle from the manifold which is the gasket rattling a little.
I think this is the best car I have owned and I have owned a few (20 to be exact) BMW's, VW, Ford + many more and this car is far better.
I know of 8 people who own Cosworths and they are all pulling their hair out with faults time and time again.
BUY ONE. YOU'LL LOVE IT. (read more)

I miss my Rover 620Ti a LOT. But I dont miss the expense.
Gearbox rebuild £400
New cylinder head due to warping from overheating, which will happen regularly if you dont keep an eye on the water and oil levels and dont stop immediately the temp guage goes above normal - over £1000, but thankfully covered by Warranty.
New Tyres and Brakes ALL ROUND required every 12 months.
Overall a hilariously quick car, without the stigma of having to drive a BMW. Just make sure you save your money for... (read more)

The Rover 620Ti is a very quick car which rewards comittment, very little turbo lag and proper gear ratios (VW take note). Fit the best front tyres you can I'm using goodyear F1's - soft but emmense grip. Bye bye Gti's and 3 series. (read more)

Having driven a Rover 620Ti for 2 years between '97 and '99 I decided I was in the market for a performance saloon and this had to be it, the 620ti.
This car produces 197BHP as standard which is plenty to see off even the newest of BMW 328's and alike (same 0-60 as a new 330i Sport Tiptronic). It puts this power down through a 5-speed manual box, Limited Slip Differential and 205/50ZR16 tyres with traction control to keep everything in order. The suspension is sporty without being harsh, my... (read more)

Very quick car - people dont expect the Rover 620Ti to be a turbo and dont expect young people to drive them. I have beaten many subarus since buying mine and a lot of my mates have gone out and got one. They were all suprised how quick and comfy they are to drive. The best bit about the car for me is the look on peoples faces when the car rips past and gives a nice swoosh from the twin piston dump valve. GET ONE! (read more)
