Oh no another noobie!

Hi Guys and Gals
I used to be a member years ago with a MGTF which I loved - unfortunately for practical reasons it had to go. I have always regretted that but, now, I have retired and the company car has gone, but due to age and hips I've got to be sensible.
So, I am actively looking at the MG and Rover saloons and hatches.
I don't do a high mileage any more, and apart from a week in Scotland each Spring I fly abroad.
Probably ask loads of questions but Hell I will enjoy finding her !
Take care all

Welcome back - I hope you find a new ride. With the last MGs made in 2005 good 'uns are getting hard to find now.
Good luck

Hi Gnu
You are so right - I think I have taken on the search for the Holy Grail ! first problem is I am not sold on a specific model. I like the ZS, ZT , but the old 220 and 420 series gti, and 418 you can't get. Ideally now I'm starting to research I will get more idea and then this forum will obviously help.

Welcome aboard benjione.

As gnu says, good cars are becoming rarer but they are still to be had. It may be easier to find one if you're not picky on model and variant. A lower mileage driver should head for a V6 (or V8) in my opinion. The KV6 is a great engine that delivers well in the ZS and ZT.
