October 17th or October 27th?

Come on, SOMEONE out there knows what's coming...
Didn't Ann recently mention that it would be worth making a visit to a local dealership on October 17th? Or was it the 27th? Now I can't find that thread anywhere, and the conspiracy theorist in me recons it's been deleted.
Now October 27th is being bandied around again.

ZR 200? ZR 220? Facelifted 45/ZS? (I hope)? Can't be the 75s turn, not yet.

Or should I just stop worrying and go back to taking those little pills again?

Nah the thread hasn't been deleted. I suggested it purely on the basis that if they wanted to get it into the December issues of the monthlies... they couldn't leave it much later than 27 October.

Pure speculation on my part I may add

Just took a trawl through a couple of other MG Rover enthusiast sites and it something certainly seems to be happening on 27th. October..... in fact it's even been suggested that Mega is giving birth on this date

I've got mine booked.

I asked them for it from Christmas Eve to 27 December! They haven't said no yet. Otherwise it's late November.

No, a Mini Mega would be a product of B*W at Cowley (also known as B*W Oxford).

STOP PRESS.....

They're supposed to be releasing facelifts of all 3 ranges, not just the 45, but the 25 AND 75.

Gee, hope this is true for once.
