Why are Rover 75 Cars so rubbish?

because the cooling system cant cope

they are made to a budget and all rovers have always been the same

No, not all Rovers have been the same. My father had a Rover 100 (1960s model); it was a good car and had no problem with cooling in the five years he had it. I had a Rover 213, I bought it secondhand very cheaply - it was a rust-bucket but had no mechanical problems in the two years I had it.

the 75 was not made on a small budget, in fact the total opposite is true. The budgets to develop the car were huge. It was built and designed when BMW owned Rover and shares many parts with BMW 3 and 5 series cars. The weak link was in the small 1.8 cars with the K series engine, an engine known for head gasket problems. The 2.0 and 2.5 v6's did not have this weakness and the 2.0 diesel (same engine in bmw 5 series) has the total opposite problem, they are so efficient they struggle getting to normal operating temperature, let alone managing to overheat.

You have taken the webasto thermosystem out of your rover 75 as it was making some weird noises you have bypassed the pipes and am just wondering if the car will run fine without it?

No need to take it out. You can just unplug it or find and remove the correct fuse. Look for FrenchMike - rover forum - and send the webasto pcb to him for repair. Its simple to remove the pcb.

How do you bleed the water system on rover 75?

On the 1.8 (mine is a turbo) there is a bleed screw on the top of the coolant rail at the passenger (left seat) side of the block about half way (memory) before it goes around the back. This is the safest and surest method.

It is possible to do it through the top hose by releasing the clip slowly and carefully and allowing hot coolant to dribble out. Finally you can run the engine with the pressure cap off, and you will see bubbles coming out of the small vent or flow port in the side of the expansion bottle filler neck, which should be just submerged under an overfull coolant level. You can facilitate this by gently squeezing or massaging hoses. This is messy and needs repeating a few times, and be warned the engine will eventually boil over at which point you switch off fairly quickly and then once settled start again; in other words try and catch it before this happens and switch off. Better to do it around a lunch break and several cups of tea on a relaxed Saturday, and do in three or four sessions. You must wear gloves, keep your face away from the loose hose clip or open neck, wear glasses and be careful. The coolant is VERY HOT.
