THERE you go – the 620Si’s exhaust is done and the spare wheel, which had been fitted due to a damaged tyre on the right front alloy, has been put back in the boot – giving me a full set of wheels. No more growling, no more buzzing and no more odd wheels. My Rover now looks like a complete car.
Driving the 620Si back from the tyre centre today, it struck me that the good old thing really is doing the job of general hack very well indeed. It’s quiet, refined, comfortable and chilled…
Not much more to say really – a quick oil service and I think it’s good to go for the rest of the winter.
