Oil filter 5
Air filter 7
Fuel filter 10
Brake pads 15-20
Brake disks 15-25
Sparks (each) 5<
Exhaust back box 65...
MG6 TCi Tech 1.8 petrol uses a standard K Series Oil Filter, can't speak for air filter but am sure the standard fuel filter will work. Brake pads and disks on front are MG ZT/Rover 75 (not 190) rear are MG ZT/BMW Z4 pads with MGZT 190 disks and handbrake shoes. My car runs none standard spark plugs as it is LPG but I would bet for petrol it uses the same plugs as a K series as it also uses K series coil packs and spark plug leads. Don't know about the back box but as your price is for a pattern part I am sure one can be had that will fit for a similar price.

It is an inexpensive car to run and maintain, although headlight bulbs are hard to fit and number plate bulbs on the Magnette are a pain to access.

Not to upset anyone but I am a little confused, how come one minute you are going to buy an MG 6 then you want to buy a GS. I think you just want to pick holes in them, are you some sort of wheel kicker?

The GS and 6,s are completely different, I would rather have my 6 than a GS that's my preference, I think the GS is a good motor but not for me.
MG,s are what they are, a true MG fan is a true MG fan.
