I would be interested to see if a Brim to Brim calculation backed this up, if it did my 15k a year in my ZT CDTI that does a consistent 51mpg would only cost 150 more p.a. in the MG6 as opposed to 650 at 35.6mpg. Could be a game changer, although I don't like the fact the Magnette is 1k dearer than the GT for no obvious reason!

Most likely higher spec than the GT as like in the Rover days, the 45 hatch would have less goodies than the equivalent saloon car.

Quentin Willson drives the MG6 again.

Your wish has come true! :-)

How much was that 54321 cheque worth ?

As I said that could be a deal changer for someone reading this thread now

i think a lot of people are surprised by how nice the 6 looks on the road......it seems to look good in most colours which helps.

i must say that the dash looks more attractive every time i see it too.

Very attractive looking car, I hope it serves you well.

I've only ever seen one MG6 since they were launched it happened to be a blue one as well.

Does the 75 rear plate fit?

It looks like it's missing something.

Oh yes and bebadged of course - I hate all those silly little badges manufactures fit. I haven't had badges on a car since 1983 and my Chevette was Euro look before Euro existed.

If I remember right they lived at 38 Oun*le Road and their names are Denise, Alan and Keith Harris and they went to GreenHolm School. They moved to Warren Road. We also used to have a mate who lived maybe within 5 doors of you called Steven Philips.

you could probably have one made,they do look very nice...i had one on my old ztt and it looked very classy imo.

i must admit,ive debadged a few cars too but only the engine size badges normally(the 1.6 on my last alfa 147)......

i dont think the mg6 one looks too bad tho.

2 weeks of ownership and I have nothing but praise for the car. Keep finding neat features I have never had on any car before, had a great trip out today with Queen blasting out the cd !
Average Mpg is around 36, mainly short journeys mind so pretty pleased with this figure.
