Rimmer Brothers will stock a lot of things, but you'll pay for the privelege. Try the owners' club.

This is a good starting place

Now all I have to do is remember where I've seen photos of that P5B before wink, fairly distinctive exhausts.

If only someone had sat down the Rover board in the 80s or BMW later on and made them look at and drive this car - everything a car made under the Rover brand should be.

Just so much love for these.

Agree with the comment above, the essence of what rover should have remained is captured perfectly in this model. Shame on them for how the brand ended up.

Although probably not for the rover purists I decided to remove the centre exhaust box and let the "flowtech raptor" mufflers do their job and it sounds fantastic, remarkably like the mustang in Bullit. Built into this mod is the facility to replace the existing box fairly quickly as I used flanges that can be unbolted easily.

I agree, a shame, I'm no rover fan to be honest but this model does it for me. When you do any work on this car you can see how antiquated there methods were:- example, nearly every fastener has a nut bolt washer and spring washer with very few captive nuts etc.
