...and advertise the MG ZS more. It really is a kick ass car! I used to HATE the old 45, the new Rover 45 and MG ZS are a major improvement. MGR should push the MG ZS really hard. The body kit looks superb.

Look at it this way, I'm a fan, but I used to detest the old 45/ ZS. I wouldn't have gone near them with a barge poll. The Grill on the old 45 used to look flipping awfull. But Peter Stevens has waved a magic wand and suddenly I find them desirable. I really fancy getting a ZS. Some of the fans on this website have posted pics of their cars and suddenly I really want one. Come on MGR advertise this car on prime time! Don't leave it all to www.MG-rover.org :)

I give a second to that. The old face of 45/ZS was pretty awful. the new one is passable. At least as good as the Ford/Vauxhall competition.

A bit of advertising couldn't hurt.

Aye, at least with those Footy ads they were exposing the ZS doing a reverse 180 down a car park. :hyper:

Then again I bet those knobby do-gooders at the ASA had a field day...

Makes the design 100x smoother and less botched, but still keeps the lariness with the side fins. A brilliant piece of design work -the work of the design team on such limited resources is like feeding the five thousand. Imagine what they could do with access to more design funds than £25 and a book voucher!!

It has been said in an MGR press release that 40% of sales are now overseas - that is good news as it maens they are making inroads in new markets rather than being entirely dependent upon the UK.

Well MGR have said recently that they are going to make a strong effort to drive up sales and push the brand more, so we could maybe see some advertising in the new year.

They should do a copy of the Citroen C4 ad, with the ZS doing a better dance but breakdancing etc - MGR have to learn that even if the car isn't as good as the competition, who cares - people will buy anything with the right advertising !

Stop shying away MGR, advertise the cars, people will make up their own minds, but at least you might get them into the dealerships!

I've had some real compliments about my new ZS180 :D

A chap that drives an S-Class Merc was looking at it the other day, and I expected him to hate it (he did try and tell me I "don't want to buy a Rover"). In fact he said it was very nice, gorgeous even. I really think XPG helps though, so sexy!

I even tried to be modest and said "Yes it's nice, but if you look close enough you can just about tell it was once a Honda Civic". To which he said "Yeah but they've done a hell of a job with what they've got to work with".

I was quite chuffed with that!

Why on earth would you say something like that? Be proud of teh car you have - who on earth even remembers the Honda version here anyway - Rover always outsold it by a huge margin.

I was trying to gauge whether he though it looked like an "old car". And no he didn't!

Just thinking about that ZS breakdancing ad. Maybe it could start with that C4 ad, but with the MG twice as big, stamping on it and doing a rap at the same time...

Niiice...
