Cecil Kimber must be turning in his grave!

There is nothing "sporty" about any current offerings - I now take the view that "MG" should have stopped in 2005.

Hear, hear Geoff. MG should have gone with dignity not have the ignominy of being some faceless Chinese junk, the makers of which have no interest in the history of the marque, they have made it a laughing stock.
There, I've said something I've been wanting to say for ages and if anyone is upset then tough!!!

George,Geoff and Vic. Have you driven one of the new MGZS models?
I have the 3 cylinder 999cc 6 speed auto model, it is excellent.
At least you can still buy an MG.
Try one

No thank you John. 3 cylinder 1 litre automatic? What a comedown. There is one in my locality and it's just another faceless blob. For that sort of money I could get a half decent MGC GT. At least 4 cylinders and 4 manual gears with overdrive is far superior and much more fun to drive.
I'd rather MG had died with dignity.
