I'm back!

I doubt there's anyone that remembers me on here, l used to have a 190ztt+ awesome bit of kit... However after a 5 year gap I'm back to mg ownership with a rather lovely mg6 gt tse 1.8 petrol turbo! Only had it a few days but loving it already... Can't believe the amount of toys and how well it drives!
Anyone that remembers me feel free to say hello...

Hi name rings a bell somewhere I think in my head.

I owned a ZTT diesel but have a Ford Focus now, so I imagine we have crossed paths on the ZT section before.

Who is still around from back then? Flyers names now been mentioned, is he still knocking around? What about Steve child's? And who had the mental remapped diesel ztt with loads of upgrades?

Hey simcor, what are you doing here if you have a focus then?

Looks like flyer hasn't been here for a couple of years. If I remember rightly Steve child's was the big boss man that ran the forum no?


Zt with loads of upgrades? Not the man that had the red leather done?

Robdrinkwater had the Ztt running about 185ps and is still around I think. Steve sold the forum to auto****e and haven't seen him around much lately.

Flyer went AWOL and refused to darken the doorstep ever again although he did pop back a couple of times.

I am still on here a little bit but not as much as I used to be. I like to keep up mostly with the news on New MG.

Just because I have a focus doesn't mean I can't come here lol

I still look in from time to time. Was hoping the MG6 would get the 1.4T GM petrol engine. Didnt want the diesel version, so now own an Astra GTC 1.4T. What a great car the Six would be with this engine and six speed gearbox. Who knows it may still happen?

Flyer didn't come back after being banned on here. It hurt his delicate feelings. PMSL.


However he has been busy elsewhere getting himself banned from TWO other forums.


One temporarily and the other a life ban.


He is still his usual sweet self.------------the cretin.
