In "Alan Attraction" (episode 1.2), Alan is forced to downgrade his Rover 800 for something smaller, his personal assistant Lynn suggests a Rover Metro, but Alan's having none of it.

Lynn: Do you want to hear the good news or the bad news?
Alan: The good news.
Lynn: Well, Rawlinson's say you can have another fifty of the shop-soiled chocolate oranges if you plug them again tomorrow.
Alan: Excellent. And the bad news?
Lynn: The accountants say that since you've definitely not got a second series at the BBC you're going to have to sack everyone at Pear Tree Productions and close the office down. Otherwise they're going to declare you bankrupt on Friday.
Alan: Right. Still, good news about the chocolate oranges.
Lynn: Now, Alan, you’re going to have to trade down your Rover 800 for a smaller car.
Alan: Go on.
Lynn: I picked up these brochures for the new Metro, it’s a lovely little car, and if you do...
Alan: [interrupting] Lynn, I'm not driving a Mini-Metro.
Lynn: But you do have to make substantial savings.
Alan: Lynn, I am not driving a Mini-Metro.
Lynn: But if you do, you can keep Pear Tree Productions going with a skeleton staff of two and...
Alan: There's no point finishing the sentence, Lynn, because I am not driving a Mini-Metro.
Lynn: But if you do...
Alan: Lynn! I'll just speak over you.
Lynn: But...
Alan: No! Go on, try and finish the sentence and see what I do. Go on.
Lynn: [they both talk together] With a skeleton staff of two...
Alan: I'm not driving a Mini-Metro, I'm not driving a Mini-Metro, I'm not driving a Mini-Metro.
Lynn: No, no it's different, it's called a Rover Metro now.
Alan: They've rebadged it, you fool!
Lynn: [sternly] Well, Alan, if you want a Rover 200 you’re going to have to sack everyone at Pear Tree Productions.
Alan: Fine.
Lynn: Including Jill.
Alan: Jill, lovely Jill, she's my favourite. But fine, I'll sack her.

In the next episode he has a new Rover 200, which he contines to drive for the rest of the first series.

But he still has a very brief affair with her and sacks her (over the radio) at the end of the episode.

Technically it wouldn't have been a Metro by this time, they were Rover 100s!!

Unlike his other Rovers this one actually carries a Norfolk registration!

"I'm not driving a Rover 100" doesn't sound as funny, also he calls it a Mini-Metro and it hadn't been called that since the early-80s. It still looked the same and I think most people would still have thought of it as the Metro.

I like the calls to his ex-wife and her new boyfriend.

"How’s Mr. Planet of the Apes man? Oh. Is he still driving that Renault Megane? Yeah? Can I just read you something from Top Gear magazine? No, it’s alright, I’ve got it here.
“With a mere ninety break-horse-power available, progress is too leisurely to be called fast, but on the motorway in fifth gear the Megane’s slow pace really becomes a pain. Uphill runs become power-sappingly mundane, while overtaking National Express coaches can become a long, drawn-out affair.”
Not my words, Carol, the words of Top Gear magazine. Hello?"

In the new film "Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa" guess what Lynn drives...

Spoiler - click here to see it
That's right, a Metro! An ancient B-reg Austin Metro.
