When I took delivery of my MG HS on Friday. I spoke with the dealers and they advised 4000 cars arrived this month and they are expecting another 4000 next month, so hopefully they are starting to get things rolling with all the orders.

They also said that MG has just under 40,000 cars on order just now with 16,000 built and awaiting shipping this is including the ones that have just arrived though.

Don't know how true this is but no reason for them to make it up as I already have my new car馃榿
Sounds promising..although my dealer has moved my delivery from end of june to end of august..unless theyre being cautious.

Booked my MG HS in Aug 2021 with Frasers Edinburgh, which has now been bought by MacKlin Motors. Followed up with both MG Frasers and Macklin and Frasers confirmed me today that I should have car by June end. Not sure how much truth is in it :(
Will call Macklin today to confirm...

Macklin also said end June so let's hope. They also confirmed they are expecting lots of MGs in June so I guess last year's backlog should get cleared.

Such a tempting offer..that someone will take up i think..sadly i cannot as i am renting via motability..so not my choosing..plus i have on order an HS excite..with no panoramic roof.
But good luck.

It鈥檚 nice to hear from others in the same predicament and know you鈥檙e not alone. I ordered 2 MGs! a HS in mid December 2021 and my wife ordered a ZS end of December. Original date end of march for both. Both with Arnold Clark, they鈥檝e not kept us up to date and we have to chase it. Date keeps being pushed back.

Most recent call a few days ago the dealer insisted a batch of HSs including mine are coming mid July but the ZS is pushed till September. Hard to know what to believe now as all he had was an estimated delivery date which he insisted would happen but that鈥檚 clearly not very reliable any more鈥 would love to cancel and go elsewhere but the we bought both cars with the mg affinity deal and there鈥檚 really no SUVs any where near this price point with the discounts.

Baby due in august and we鈥檙e desperate to have a bigger car for then so just have to keep the fingers crossed. just hoping it doesn鈥檛 take a full year like someone above!

Where did you hear about this nonsense
It is not a legal requirement to fit DAB
radio..in fact..i would rather not have DAB.
From 1st September 2020, The Road Vehicles (Approval) Regulations 2020 require all vechicles to be fitted with DAB radios (if they have a radio fitted). It is in UK law passed by both the Houses of Commons and Lords. So I suggest you do some research before calling it nonsense.

Manufacturers decided to change so that FM bands can be phased out..DAB too in 10 yrs..and its reception is not so great.

I ordered my MG HS Excite Auto in black pearl the end of Febuary 2022 through Motability been ringing up the dealer nearly every week since to try and get an update but my rep won't give me a date I spoke to a different rep a couple of weeks ago and he told me that i've got an ETD of 3rd September but that is subject to change (could be earlier or later). the only good thing about that is if it does arrive on 3rd Sept it will be on a new 72 plate!

I've got the black pearl, they look ok when polished, but boy, what an ******** to polish not to get streaks, and it gets dirty faster than any other colour !
I got the black because it was one they had in stock, ready to be picked up in 3 days, when they said it was black, I looked at the Mrs, and said "do we really need a black car?"
As they COULDN'T give a date for delivery we went for that, big mistake!
I've had near on 30 cars during my driving life, I've even had a white car, which polished up great and didn't seem to get really dirty, but black !
The last month, up here in Lincolnshire, there seems a lot of very fine dust, and during the night when the car condensate the dust gets blown and in the morning, you'd think you've been driving on the beach.

Apart from that, it's a great ride, comfortable, spacious, and for the price well finished off, even down to the twin stainless exhausts, if you like chrome, it's quite blingy, they couldn't have made the badges any bigger.
But I hope you are happy when you take delivery !!

my last car was a VW Polo, it was a new model that came out in 2018, I placed my order, and it took over a year to turn up. Mine was built in South Africa.
I can tell you, that was a very long year !!

My last car was black..but always looked good. I cant take another car
My order was an excite model..without the fancy roof.i felt it was unwarranted
But..also the deposit was 拢1000 lower
However if they offered the whole shabang for the same price..who wouldnt take it..lol.b

It may seem I'm moaning, but I do like the car it's just the little things that spoil it, MG have got to pull their finger out with all the electrical gremlins. for instance, when you unlock the car with either the door button or the key fob, the door mirrors stay in, once in the car I have to press the mirror control to get them to open out.
Another thing, when we stop the Mrs when opening her passengers door, she has to pull her handle twice, first to unlock then again to open the door.
Is this normal on every members cars, or just unique to my car? can some member come back to me with that one.
