*** brought us 25, 45 etc, so perhaps we should come up with a better idea and send it to MGR. 1st idea is Rover R series, Rover S series and Rover T series, T being the 75, Rover T1800, T2000V6 and T2500V6, just a thought, I'm sure better ideas will come along.
This can also be seen in "blah" MG mini.

Rover has always worked with a series of numbers. The P4 series had the original Rover 75, the Rover 95, Rover 100 etc. The P6s and SD1s had Rover 2300, 2600, 3500 etc. Then we had the 200/400/600/800 system. The 25/45/75 idea simplifies that, in the same way Saab simplified the 9000 to become the 95.

I think they should stick with the present system, as it still includes plenty unused numbers - 85 could be a *** 5 series rival. 65 could be an MPV. Whatever - I think it's best to stick with.

Austin & Morris were the marques that used names - Princess, Maxi, Marina, Montego, Oxford, cambridge etc. Wolseley always had a cylinder number followed by the model number - 4/44, 6/90. 18/85 etc. MG has always used letter combinations (except the magnette, and ARG MGs).

Thnk the shoudl stick to this, particularly if they are ever to reintroduce any of the 'lost' brands. The present Rover number systmen may have been one of the few benifits of the B*W era....

Over to you.
