It's faster mate and it's also faster than the 1.4 ZR too. Tighter emissions on the 25 and ZR so I believe, which slows the car slightly.

Girfriends brother has an 04 ZR, but she has driven it and says that our 200 is quicker to accelerate.

It is so marginal it's not even worth thinking about.

might be difference due to gear ratios - either difference in the final drive on R65 boxes - or many the cogs are slightly different on the new IB5 gearbox..

either way the difference is marginal at best

I don't know what Parkers is on about with that 10.2 business.
Rover quote them all as 10 secs.

The difference is probably just the same as you would get even between the same model of car.
Some are faster, some are slower, but my 200 will be faster than your 25 greeny for sure! :flipa:

Anyway what's a Rover 24?

All pretty much of a muchness.

However the R200 seems quicker as it has less of a "power band" ie is more powerful under 2k rpm.

This is due to the Euro 3 regs, which means more strict emissions limits than the Euro 2 that the 200 was spec'ed to

Anyone who's driven the 200 and the 25 will say that the 200 is quicker. Just accept it, as said it's because of emissions regulations.

S reg' 60,000.
No I don't think it's time for an upgrade. It's currently looking good and always getting better and kicking a hell of a lot of newer cars asses on the road at the mo with even bigger engines.

What mods you got greeny?
At the mo only simple engine mods for the 200, full enclosed induction kit, ported manifold and downpipe, recently decoked engine.
Soon to be added: full performance exhaust, possible 52mm throttle body, better brakes(vented).

It'll still kick your 25 into touch tho guaranteed. :p
