Looks like a lot of maintenance done and from CA.

Thought on buying this closer to $10k?

Seems like it has been well maintained, or rather $$$ has poured onto it which the Rover gods demand. The rebuilt transmission is an interesting footnote in its history. The rack has to go. Love the color combo, though I will note the black interior gets HOT at times (invest in sun shades for the front windshield).

That rack...if you buy it please put that on craigslist where it belongs.

I have black interior. The right window tinting makes the difference. Nano-ceramic made a big difference.
All though twice as expensive as the other tints, I can touch my interior without getting third degree burns.

Mine has a black interior and no special tinting. Its actually the coolest (relative term) black interior car I've owned (and I've owned a lot). Of course, it has significantly more stock tint than most cars I've owned as well.

Looks like a good one with all the issues sorted, tranny replacement is interesting but not too worry some if done by a dealer or reputable shop.
Sell the rack and fit a front runner and a spare carrier on the rear and you good to go
