1990 Rover Metro Review
Rover Metro - Beatrice The Bee — Its fun, nippy, and its resonably good looking, its easy to get parts for and performance wise i can't complain, i've had the car for 5 - 6 months and nothing has gone wrong. The acceleration is slow but after thirty its fine, and the brakes are just like any other drum brakes and are a bit naff but do the job. Rubbish mileage but a new exhaust will be fitted soon so that should sort out the problem! all in all i'd give the car about a 7/10 excellent first (or second in my case, car)
Pros: Small and fits into almost any gap
Cons: bad fuel consumption

Surprisingly Quick In 1.4 16v Gta Version
Apart from loads of power above 3000rpm, this car was rubbish. Blown head gasket after 2 weeks ownership, crap suspension, mediocre handling for such a small car. Spluttery below about 2500rpm. No roo... Read More
