Value

5 out of 5

Try buying anything else the same age with the same perfomance for the same money what can I say

Costs

4 out of 5

Good on the old fuel, cheap enough for parts only thing that costs a bit are tyres due to the size

Performance

5 out of 5

Well after 7 months of owning one it still puts a smile on my face and shocks a lot at the traffic lights

Reliability

4 out of 5

Apart from the cylinder head popping at 55,000 miles (chich they all do) its been a reliable car. Always starts stops and drives well. Luckily I had a warranty to cover my cylinder head, if you dont be prepared for a £500 bill at your local Rover dealer

Well mine looks like a ZR amd blows all the little 1.4 ZR boyracers off the road, so image yes, it has one

Comfort

4 out of 5

Never found mine to be anything other than comfortable ok its not got Beemer 7 series seats, but it does the job and never come out of the car in pain or anything like that even after long journeys
