Phil spent a late night browsing the classifieds and stumbled upon a very late example of an increasingly rare British classic. He loved it and before we knew it, there was another addition to the fleet…

Lovely video and nice combo these two presenters, they work together well and that atmosphere makes it all the better to watch.

Eddie Le mesurier says:

I had a m plate 600 poor man spec in 2004 it had rust holes .not great on petrol either

Mark's Cars says:

The nostalgia is strong with this one. My late father had a ‘94 M plate 623Si which I drove occasionally. That Honda engine was lovely, made a good noise too IIRC. His was a manual and had been breathed upon so went well. It died due to a cracked head. Yeah, rare for a Honda engine but as I said, it had been breathed upon…

Had a brand new 600 Ti in BRG it was a beautiful rapid car. Owned it for a year ,traded it in at Rover to downsize to a 25 was later told the gearbox totally failed after a few miles of me trading it in 😇

The Greek Mancunian says:

Good morning from Mcr. You brought me back to memory lane. I was a student when the 600s were hot wheels, and I use to ow a Nokia 3310. I always wanted to ow a Rover but now cause the company got bust, its harder to get parts.

Brent Fairlie says:

They were a better car,for having the RELIABLE Honda engine. Nice colour.

Mark Frankham says:

Nothing like a 960 Volvo 🙄

Neil Mark says:

Put some Vitesse alloys on and it will look great!

Hardy Bunster says:

Was the 200bhp 620TI not the top of the range?

Lovely car i bought my r reg 623 gsi for 400 in Feb 2020 keep an eye on the window regulator & if you do the Campbelt/belts the crank pully nut can be a pig to undo

Paul Illingworth says:

Had x2 600s first one relatively new, the next one wasn’t too old I had it a bulk of its life until it reached 21 years old last when I finally decided to sell, the 600 both of mine never ever missed a beat and never let me down, I towed several times a year and nothing ever broke on it, it was sadly starting to decay underneath, wheel arches always rot there. The interior wears very well on them too.

DoubleDeckerAnton says:

Love the 620 ti too.

Keith A Tate says:

Great video and a great car too I own a 1999 620SLI not only is it my daily driver I also take it to classic car shows

MarcusTDM says:

The Rover 600 was a damn good car. The GSI had lovely seats. The TI was definitely the best 600 though. Also I agree, the 600 was a far better looking car than the 75.

Ad0akes says:

1500 notes with a grand in the boot 😭

Youngtimersportugal varg11 says:

Probably one of the most reliable late rovers, but they are almost all gone

Steve Inczedi says:

Prior to watching this I was hoping for a Gilbern…..

Peter Nicholls says:

I adored that car when it came out

Dutch Uncle says:

Don’t know what they called it in the UK but in the Netherlands a Honda Accord was practically identical but a much better quality.

Jimmy N13 says:

Agree on Leatherhead, fuck all in the high st
