Right, Car number 3 laugh

Shes completely standard atm, but Im hoping to buy the Extreme MG rear spoiler for the Hatchback some point soon. Maybe even the 180 bodykit, but all that in time. Pictures dont really do her justice here as she wasnt very clean when they were taken. Wait for my pictures in around 2 weeks time to judge wink

MG ZS 110+
1.6 K-Series
Max Power (bhp/rpm) 107/6000
Max Torque (lb ft/rpm) 102/4500

MPG
Town - 30.1
Out of Town - 50.1
Average - 40.2

Half Leather interior with Front Bucket seats.
Suede Door Cards etc etc Nice and posh inside. Comfy whilst also being sporty as well.

So, on paper the MG is down on power and torque to the Alfa, which is to be expected. However, seeing as it turns out my engine was very worn, and may well have been clocked, I dont think I was ever running anything near 120bhp. The MG, being newer, feels a lot quicker, so theres a bonus.

Handling is stiff and brilliant. Feel every bump in the road. Superb. Never driven a car on the road that holds the road as well as this does. Testament to the MG Engineers me thinks laugh

Me Likey very much. Really enjoyed the test drive, and look forward to getting accustomed to it soon happy

Still have to wait a week to collect though frown

A lot of people hate Rover/MG but I think they're great. My pa had an SD1 and then two 213's.
I'd love one of those in ten years or so.

Top man, facelift as well!! You already know my thoughts on this beauty hehe! Now you can come the MG Rover NW meet's with me haha!

You got the + trim, so has lots of goodys! Tis gay how the power and torque dropped off a bit for the Euro3 emmissions, but trust me, the K'er is an awsome engine (even if it isnt very eco-friendly fook Greenpeace lol), you will have more than enough low-down torque and feel the power quite well throughout the rev-range.

Dependent on how recent it was built, you may even have the N-Series forerunner engine in it - quite a few of the last MG-Rover Group built facelifts have!

Personally, I don't like the extreme spoiler, but the first thing ya gotta do is add the 180 air intake wing grills, they are a subtle and small modification, but make such a difference imho.

Yeah... The Grills are awesome. Just reminds you slightly of the SV yipee Would that be a wing replacement job, or modification?

The Extreme spoiler when they first came out on the saloon was a novelty. A lot of the MkII saloons then didnt go for that option, which made a nice change. The hatch just looks like its missing something tbh, really nice car in real life. Upfront shes stunning, but I just think the spoiler would finish her off 100%.
Plus, the Hatch spoiler hasnt really changed since its days on the 45. Dont know why they call it extreme tbh. I hve got a boot lip spoiler...but well see as time passes happy

Is right! Ive always loved these. Everyone seems to hate them though so at least i know im not alone anymore.

Normally, i hate silly wings, but i agree, this would be helped with one.

all you need is a nice exhaust, nothing too silly, just sporty. The K-series is cracking sounding engine.

very nice mate, really do like the mg's and they did well to make the rover 400 into a totally different looking car. At the time mg's styling was blob on with the modified car look. You want to look out for the wings with the gills down the side as they are fecking awesome. P.s nice color the x power grey sometime I wish the tf was that color grin

Cheers Peeps happy

The Shark Gill vents are class yeah. Gonna leave it a while before I do anything bodywise, apart from the spoiler.

Rare as Hens teeth the spoilers, but think ive found one, and its in Xpower Grey as well. No messing around with sanding and Priming etc etc...


Just cant wait to pick it up and drive it now. 4 days tomorrow frown
