I saw a Rover 600 yesterday wearing a K plate. I'm sure the last three letters of the registration plate were AOX but I'm not a 100% certain. It was the usual common burgundy red colour, didn't notice much else. If it was registered AOX, it's likely going to be an ex-Rover Group car, is it not ?

Yeah they did release them on K-reg. For the 1st 3 months, they also had black bumpers!, Rover sort of realised this just looked terrible and changed them for colour coded ones.

Only the base model 620i had black bumpers, all the rest were colour coded.

Yup, Rover dabbled in two tone colour schemes for the 800 in its later life.

The earlies 600 is a J plate. They wear all owned by Rover Group managment. They wear after 6 months sold to delears with a massive discount. But hardly any live on today. There is afew nocking about hear and there.

How weird, we saw a K Plate 600 yesterday too, in burgundy. My partner asked me what Year K plate was, and then made some witty comment like " Ooh they havent changed them have they" as we sat on the ooposite junction in my 2004 facelifted 45!

Have to say I thought it was an early one too, I have only ever seen L plates, and most of those have been base model black bumper types.

Where did you see yours?

Still a good looking car the 600 in my opinion. It has aged well. Its Accord twin on the other hand looks dated. The press did say at lauch that the 600 was one of the best examples of a reskin ever seen. As ususal though , sales were never high enough.

I much prefer the Rover trim to the Accord. Couple of people have said put the Honda Dash in, just looks, plain and boring (only in my opinion though!)

Earliest 600's were 92K. The presses hadn't arrived at Cowley for J's to exist

All early Rover 600 press cars were registered K6** BWK. K627 BWK was a 620i that was tested in Autocar and I saw it several times a few years ago locally on my way to work most days. I wonder if the owner knew?
