I had a similar spec 2005 MG ZR 105+ a few years back just like this in silver; I thought it was (and still is) a great looking car.

It handled the road really well and was nippy enough, I do recall that it cruised really well in 5th without the revs being too high. I could never get on with the clutch in mine - the mechanism was really notchy and nothing seemed to sort it, I pretty much sold it based on that.

This looks like a bit of a cracker!

As already mentioned, the garage look to have been taking advantage of the previous owner a bit. Anyway, fair play to her for giving the car up when she did - some older people just refuse to hang up the keys!

I'll be following this one closely.

Also forgot to say the old lady kept this on the dashboard to charge the battery even with the kill switch fitted!

So spent the afternoon giving the interior a clean. I've had 30+ cars in my time and I've never had the time, skill or patience to remove the seats! So finally after disconnecting the seat belt plugs and 8 screws and they were out...



Rest of the car was pretty grim

Excellent work there, chum. Keep the updates coming. Will you get a new panel to replace the one the kill switch was in?
