Re: Looking at a MG 6 or MG 3? edit bought a mg 3 lux!

Do you own a current model mg?

They are definitely better built than the late mk2 zr and zs. I own both , and better than anything post 2001 from rover after project drive

Thanks for the welcome, for now it's probably going to stay as is

Re: How many R8's left - do we have a definitive number?
