Hey, im looking at gettin a Rover 25GTI this weekend BUT need to find out a few things b4 i part with my hard earnt cash..

I looked on the glass guide and it says its 126bhp? i thought it was like the ZR160 with the same ammount of horses?

If someone could let me know abit more info on this that would be great :)

ahhh makes sense i suppose Thanks! wanted the 160bhp ver thow :( been looking for a ZR forever.. lol but this i can get for £2800 on an X plate, worth it?

Plus would it be easily upgraded to just under 200bhp quite easily?

for 200bhp you're looking at full exhaust with sports cat/decat, cams, good enclosed filter, headwork, good plugs and leads and probably emerald engine management with throttle bodies, 200bhp o na K series doesn't come cheap, you should be able to get 170bhp reasonably simply tho

rover 25 gti is exactly same as 200 vi - own both and both are 143bhp

prefer the 25 seats and front/rear

but then again the vi is the ORIGINAL!

The only one available is the one for the smaller Rover/MG's

It is still lots of info there but it obviously does not cover the VVC engine and one must be selective about using the info on the brake disks etc.

Looks like a very nice car you have.

Nice looking motor...

am about a month into my 2000 (W) 25 gti now and am very pleased with it :)

Notice that yours has the 'big' spoiler on the back? - Is that original to the Gti's as mine has the small one... :eek:
