Looks very nice to me.

Surprising how many MG's I see on the road these days, getting quite popular I think.

What's good that's ever come out of China?So many promises when they bought MG and all they've delivered is cr*p.
I think they're still using British designers I may be wrong and stand to be corrected,but what's in a few pictures they're far from reality.
Am I wrong or right?

Do you mean what's good that's come from China in terms of cars or just in general?

If cars then fair point. If in genreal well the majority of things we have are from China

Off topic sorry but agree with your response and immediately made me think of Monty Pythons life of Brian "what have the Romans done for us"

No not for me, however the styling is not lightyears away.
The interior still looks like a cheap Chinese disco ball, including flashing lights and cheap looking screens.
The problem is the quality is not there, panelgaps are inconsistent. Paint is a bit hit and miss, probably perfect for the home market, but we expect something better.
It will come, but it will need time.
It’s good enough for the Chinese as this is 100000x better than where they are used too in the last 20 years.

People will tell you that the Chinese make a lot electronics etc, but it’s not designed by them, the standard set by foreign companies
