I dont think that at present, pre-registration for MG is such a big issue. Cant speak for Arnold Clark but the majority of MG`s dealers are only small: these dealers are unlikely to hang on to their pre-reg stock for very long and I would have thought are largely being bought by people who intended to buy a new MG anyway(or similar 2nd-hand or new competitor). If each dealer was regularly building up stocks of pre-reg cars (and there`s little sign of it) each month without being sold, that may be a worry but I dont see them doing that. As long as they're being sold, new or pre-reg its not a big deal at present. My local dealer definitely pre-registers a couple of MG3`s maybe every couple of month it seems; they're still being sold............. It may not be what we ideally want but if gets the cars on the roads and becoming more visible then perhaps its a price worth paying at present.
