MG ZS180 2.5L V6
Full Service History (details can be provided on request)
66k miles
Trophy Blue
5 door hatch
Tax Apr 2011, MoT Feb 2011
£1,850 ono

It is with much regret that due to a company car we are selling our trophy blue MG ZS 180 5dr hatch.

This car was first registered on 24th Jan 2003 (‘52’ reg) to MG Rover. My wife then purchased this from MG Rover on 8th November 2003 (with 1500 miles).

The car has now done 66,000 miles. It has tax until the end April 2011, MoT until 15th Feb 2011 and was last serviced this year in Feb at 63k miles.

The timing belts, pulley etc were replaced in April 2009 at 57k (full service history listed below).

Overall the car is in very good condition. The bodywork still looks really good except for the odd couple of minor parking dings (caused by other carless drivers) and the interior is in good condition with only minor wear on the drivers seat (slight creasing on the leather). Mechanically everything works as it should do and the car is still lovely to drive. The tyres (Falken ZE912) all have plenty of wear left on them.

We also have both keys (and alarm fobs).

Standard spec:
177BHP 2.5 v6 24v quad cam
All round disc brakes with ABS
PAS with sports suspension
Driver/passenger and front side airbags
17” ‘straights’ alloys
Electric front windows and heated mirrors
Remote central locking with alarm and immobiliser
Air con
Kenwood stereo, etc

BMC CDA Air filter
Oil catch tank
Boot mounted 10 CD changer (Kenwood)
Steering wheel mounted stereo remote (Kenwood)
4 good quality black fitted mats (not MG but tailored to fit the ZS footwells)
Silver MG tax disc holder

The air filter is of good quality (cost £200) and takes in air from the front passenger wheel arch, not hot air from the engine bay. It is expected that this will release somewhere between 8-12 bhp . Subjectively this made a big improvement to the way the car both responds and sounds in the upper half of the rev range (not that there was a problem with either before).

The catch tank has been installed to help stop oil getting to the VIS valves. This was originally fitted using a metal mounting plate however this ended up working loose and damaging the radiator (which had to be replaced). This is now fitted using cable ties which although might not be the most attractive solution does provide a secure fixing.

Also included: Haynes manual, original air filter parts (could be easily restored to standard), replacement air con radiator and the old radiator (was fixed using K-Seal but we wanted it replaced).

Looking for £1,850 and live in North East Hampshire.

Please PM me if you are interested, or have any further questions.
