I know what you mean . I mean who would have though that Rover would have a following .... And actually at the time Rovers were very much under estimated and critised for the typical HGF . But 18 years later still running still in large numbers and not fallen apart yet. How many other jap cars from around the same era are still on the road? I have always liked MG's finishing touches to standard Rovers and just felt that the current small hatch offering was a little sparse . I mean take the 25 it was a nice car anyway but MG made it Sporty, fun and gave it the I WANT ONE! touch ,even TopGear when they tested it said that they would put their money on that car compared to the othe hot hatches around at the time and we all know they were one of the reasons Rover went down was because TopGear seemed to control the Hip or not button ( not hip enough in rovers case). Even now the MG ZR is still a modern looking car with very good handling and holds a good price. I just think that Roewe should make the standard car and then let MG UK go mental on it like they used to.
