Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that MG use BMW sourced Diesels in the ZT. If this is the case, why do they use a unit that develops less power than BMW's own 2 Litre unit (129 vs 150 bhp). The only technical reasons I can think of is packaging of the transverse engine and traction problems with high torque and front wheel drive. That said, have they ever thought of using the BMW 2.5 or 3.0 Litre Diesels in the rear drive ZT260 chassis. With the exception of a coiuple of notable companies, nobody is offering very high power diesels in saloon cars (170bhp+), and although not a complete convert, I can see the benefits of diesels. A ZT 3 Litre Diesel would be a very serious machine indeed.
