Good figures considering peeps always hold off until Sept to get the newer reg plate 68, I'm guessing Sept will be a 4 figure sales now with the new MG 3 !!
The revamped 3 is making a lot of being available in red, yellow, blue, and orange, but not grey or black - "colour the road". Seems an ambitious move.Dull greys appear the most popular colour choice across a wide range of car marque purchases by UK car consumers.
When our cars come from Chonburi will you still think of them as "Chinese MG"?These Chinese MG registration figures clearly show to me that despite lower profile limited media advertising, the "good word" is getting around which may explain these improving figures.
I wonder what's different? On a sub-£40k car, road tax is the same for everything nowadays, and it's just a question of how much the seller had to absorb on first registration.In light of the recent registration figures, it looks like SsangYong are on a downward spiral considering that their Tivoli compact SUV is quite highly regarded in the motoring press.
Precisely... when was the last Ford made in this country? I have always regarded Ford as 'merican anyway as no doubt did Henry and son.SIAC are a Chinese company, same as VW are a German company and Toyota and Honda are Japanese.
yes, but I don't tend to think of Jaguars as Indian or Lotuses as Malaysian or whatever it is now. I think "Chinese MG" is a bit wide of the mark TBHSIAC are a Chinese company, same as VW are a German company and Toyota and Honda are Japanese.
If I tried that I'd probably go for something like a Honda Jazz only to discover that that particular model came from India or Thailand... or China. :doh:We can all try and reverse this daft state of affairs by only buying cars made in this country.
Good for you GOMRLI'm with MGJohn 100%.
What's wrong dear John you ask. What's your problems. You clearly have an excess of them!OH MY GOD, how many times did we see this swap? Same engine conversion in 50 threads.... 6 years ago i did T Series turbo conversion to Rover 420 Tourer. I hope you have heard of it? Now it has new owner and the engine had to be second time fully rebuilt... Another great quality issue. If you say that SAIC MG engine is much better than original one, why do you blame new owners? Do we have a racist here? Don't you like the skin color of new owners? What's wrong dear John?
I think what helps makes them Chinese is their design - 90% in China, 10% in the UK. I'm not saying that's a good or bad thing but to me this makes them more Chinese than Volvo cars which are designed in Sweden and less British than Jaguar Land Rover cars which are designed in the UK,When our cars come from Chonburi will you still think of them as "Chinese MG"?
I've bought 1 second hand Nissan Micra (F-reg 1988MY) and 2 brand new cars with me as the first owner, i.e. a Seat Ibiza (03-reg 2003MY) and an MG ZS SUV (18-reg 2018MY).Go on then, how many of you buy new cars, regardless of brand. Personally I wouldn't, the only cars I'd have new are way beyond my budget.
