I have to agree, sadly, the people in the shot aren't even looking at the camera!!!

Welcome along, thanks for taking the time to join up!

I also have huge respect for people like you and wish I had the enthusiasm to do it.

The car looks good in your pic too. Have you got any pics of the rear, I think I saw some 'MG' badging on there?!!

Thanks guy's, we've had some fantastic support of forums like these with even some MG owners donating to our cause!

You can follow the car on twitter @FastAid_RC324 for updates about what we are doing!

Hopefully we will meet some of you at MG Live?

Oh and the MG6, superb, huge boot for all of our kit (as you could see in last picture), very comfortable ride and good screen display and entertainment/sat nav kit. Overall a great car!

To be honest given the offers they have on I'm looking at one for myself...

Another shot of the rear/side of the car:

Good stuff and welcome to mg-rover.org.

Maybe it can come to Pride of Longbridge 2013? Obviously if it's needed it'll have to zoom off but would be good to see it

That would be the wrong colour as it's not an ambulance! Doctors have green, although a first aid car wouldn't be entitled to them anyway.

Wounder if the MG6-TD would be an idea for some Police forces, they have shed loads of Huyndi's now, there in a similar price range.

This one is more like the actual car.

Looks like a different car in that pic, much nicer stance. Got to be worth a couple of hundred to get pro shots done every time surely...

Now that is some positive publicity surely. No matter what people like me may think of the styling of modern cars this is a good use.

May the car and it's team serve well.

Well done MG and well done to the volunteers.
