    It looks like a gofer that's been kicked in the face! I'm sure it's a perfectly good car though inside.

    I liked MG/Rover

    I had the 2.5 190+ ZT and it was beautiful to drive.

    In-fact, I'm soon gonna buy the 135+ ZT Diesel version (bmw engine) for the trip to work. (4x4 and S3 are a little thirsty!)

    Vastly under-rated cars I think. Although....much of the ZT was based on the 3 series BMW haha like the brakes, but the KV6 engine in my first one was a dream!

    I know what your saying mjr901, I have owned two MG ZR's, a 105 1.4 and a 115 2.0TDI modded to 170bhp. Good cars for their price IMO.

    My dad also had the KV6 2.5 V6 ZT, was a very nice car.

    I was 18 when I had the ZT, it was fully loaded! Solar Red.

    Swapped it straight with my 306HDI with a chap up north.

    not my image but it was like this



    The air-con was the coldest i'd ever felt in a car, was crazy good.

    The ZR, ZS & ZT were very under rated cars. The handling of my standard ZS far exceeded the handling and dynamic abilities of my S3, if you compare factory spec with factory spec.

    Ouch! I had a similar encounter a couple of years ago. Two - three weeks later the car was back. Did not enjoy driving a 90hp 1.2 VW Polo...

    I bet the 3 cylinder diesel had more torque than the polo.

    Well engine wise it's a 120d. So not slow, just no use the way I drive to the red line which doesn't work to well in a diesel though!
