Mot

Hi all..

Just want to say how chuffed I am with my 600.. I got it for free as someone had as a stop-gap car.. they then were going to scrap it, but as the scrapman only offered them 16 for it, they advertised it with MOT as a free car.. So I duely went and rescued it..

I have used it for 2 months, drove up and down the country in it and only had to sort a small diesel leak on the bleed off pipes and change the track rod ends..

Put it in for its MOT yesterday, with only a minor check over and it only failed on a rear tyre and tear in one of the CV gaitors...

so - will get them sorted in next few days and get a new MOT on her..

nice one I thought..

Kev

They are starting to get rare, but I doubt that prices might start to rise. Pity!

In my opinion we could do with all MG Rover products rising in price to stop people scrapping tham as they are not worth anything. Save as amany as possible before they get too rare..

It's interesting that because soon (and probably about right now) breaking these cars can yield more money than the car itself.

Went to pick up a fan/heater control switch panel (I wanted the fake wood effect!) from a local e-bayer and he broke a 600 that he had almost been given, 10 ea for the lights, 130=ish for the alloys, 80 for the interior....if you have the space and motivation then breaking the car can be worth more than actually selling it. Think he said it was a ZS that was pretty much picked clean, everything went.
