What in your opinion is the best trim and engine for a Rover 75 if I wanted to keep it as a classic?

Connoisseur trim. Manual. 2.0CDI or CDTi engine. Wedgwood blue. Cream leather. Original look, not the tacky 2004 facelift.

Like SG I own an identical Rover 75 with almost identical mileage and it still drives like a dream so I fully understand why he wants to keep it. It is certainly the most comfortable car I have ever owned....

A fine looking car from all angles, until the 2004 facelift. Destined to become a 'classic'. 2.0 diesels proving to be good long life cars with excellent clubs and spares back-up. Up to 4 stars.
