In January I bought my second car, to replace my first one, a '97 Suzuki Alto.
I am now the proud and loving owner of a 1995 N Rover 214 SEi, with a completely full service history, 88,000 miles on the clock, and in that goddamn fine nightfire red metallic, with body coloured bumpers an' all.
The best thing about the car is that there is absolutely NO rust on it, at all, and the boot and rear seats have NEVER seen kids (two previous owners, both with posh three-word names; probably both 50+). I see plenty of 214s around where I live, and none of them are as tidy as this example. And, having got it for only £1000, it was a bargain.
Unfortunately, being 18, the insurance is horrific (£130 a month.....WITH various discounts. Before pass plus it was £148 a month..gulp!), but it's so worth it.
Anyway, I'm not going to do any proper modifications, as I like the car the way it is, for now (although tinted windows wouldn't be turned down!). But I just want to do one thing to it - at the moment it has black plastic door mirrors. I'm interested in replacing these with nightfire red body coloured ones, if they exist.
I've trawled eBay and performed numerous Google searches, but I can't find anything that helps me.
So I googled "rover forums" and this came up - hopefully the ideal place to ask for help! So, do any of the gurus here have any suggestions as to where to look, or whether my search is in vain or not. I think rustfree body coloured mirrors would make the car absolutely perfect. I've got cash to spend, and I have no idea what sort of budget I should set aside for this. Maybe £100?
Thank you for any help you may be able to give me.
I'll post some photos of it later, maybe, so you all know what I'm after.
