So they give you money back?

How much does that work out to and what did you pay for the car ?

That's a bit rude.

How much did you pay for your house?

13,000 in 1977 and it's now worth 285,000

How is my question rude? I thought we were trying to encourage people to buy a car?

If the 54321 offer means you get 2500 back and the car cost 16,995 that makes it a much more interesting deal.

I got 1500 if diesel back with my focus and that was a major decider in buying it ?

What's wrong with covering the bases and doing the figures ??

It was a good deal List for a Magnette TSE with metalic paint is 20395, give Ian or Simon a call at the sales centre to see what deal they could do

I just think it's wrong questioning people about how much they paid for something.

The prices are on the website and I'm sure a dealer could give you a price if you wanted one.

I was more interested what the deal worked out to. Id got notions of cheques arriving each year but that makes more sense.

I'm not fussed if he got a better deal on the car but the offer would be the same where ever it was bought.

I got on average 30-35% off list on the employee scheme from Ford which made that too good a deal to miss. It struck me the cash back might sway someone reading this post now.

Looks nice littlechicken - like the close up detailed pics also

That reverse camera looks well sweet, much better than sensors.

They've changed the key fob since when I first saw/held it as before it was all smooth black piano plastic with MG painted in white - it now looks made of better quality plastic.

Well done on showing your comittment & parting with your hard earned cash, hope you have many happy years trouble free motoring.

Better still, ring a MG dealer-like Summit Garage-01384 259555 ! One who has service and repair facilities too! I've got a really really good deal on a "11" plate MG6 GT 1.8T TSE in Granite Grey with around 1400 miles on at 14,400 (see other post). OR if you would like to buy brand new?-I've got a Burnt Orange MG6 GT 1.8T TSE or a Granite Grey MG6 Magnette 1.8T TSE that are just dying to find someone to take them home before Xmas and look after them like only a MG Enthusiast can ! Nice car Mark-does look good in Union Blue!

I was giving that Grey one a good look on autotrader. Thing is it would be a finance job for me, and even with a P/X to take off my monthly budget at the moment wont go that far

Why not give John Newey a ring, or pop in? It wont hurt! You never know, they might be able to find a way for you to afford it! (Might give you more for your car than you think)

Get some Poorboys wheel seal and treat the alloys before the winter roads take their toll, makes such a difference as dirt just falls off. That along with a good coating of wax for the paintwork should help keep the outside in mint condition
