Very sad to report my ZS180 MkII has just been declared a write off having been rearended a couple of weeks ago.

I bought her in September 2009 and enjoyed every one of the 15,000 miles we drove together.

Currently very sad and totally gutted.

AND I had the belt service done & a new inlet manifold fitted a couple of months ago!!!

I hope to get another, but I won't be in a position to do so for a few months.

In the meantime, thanks to the forum for all your help and support, keep motoring FAST, aim for the apex!

Agreed got to be worth a grand in parts being the mk2, lights and bumpers go for good money and the engines sell for big bucks all day long.

How bad is the damage, it might be worth a good price as spares or repair.

If the boot floor hasn't been bent and its just the rear bumper etc, think I would buy it back, get s/h bits and a respray.

Typhoon on here sorted his car after a similar crunch.

Best of luck with it.

All panels are still in stock, try close call service offered by Xpart


The bodywork and mechanical write off avoidance programme for all MG Rover vehicles



0845 603 4451


They want to keep are pride and joys on the road.

Complete rear floor are in stock, back panels and rear quarters with bumpers.

Very much worth buying back

We used service on race car from this



to this




As long as the floor is not damaged under the seats then its fine to rebuild
as under Thactham rules some damage is not allowed to be repaired.

Wow! Great news re. Xpart panels.

There is a small crease where o/s rear wing was pushed down & slightly out. Also a small crease in the boot under the o/s light cluster. Engineer has classed as Catagory C and valued salvage at £217.50!!!

I think I'm getting this wrong, so your insurance will pay out for the car (Or rather the party that hit you) and then you can buy it back for £217.50?

Worth it in my opinion if you love the car!

Yes, the TP insurers will pay out on total loss basis and let me keep the car, albeit Cat C. for £217.50.

Would be daft not to keep it, eh?

Daft not to, I'd buy a dozen rear ended MKII's if they were all that price, you could shift it on for 3-4 times that in one go or get it repaired, I take it its still driveable? If so take your time and buy the bits when they come up at reasonable prices.

But if it is a cat c you wont be able to insure it until it has been inspected after repair and as such can't be driven.

Doesnt need to be repaird just inpsected. If all it has is dents there is no reason why it wont pass a Vehical Identity Check which just makes sure its still the same shell and engine as what's on the V5 and not been repaired by using another shell.

Opps, silly me, I kinda assumed that if a car has been rearended it has been hit from behind and if it has been hit hard enough to cause a small crease where o/s rear wing was pushed down & slightly out and a small crease in the boot under the o/s light cluster that there would be sufficiant damage to at least crack the rear bumper or the light cluster.

Perhaps I misunderstood what the OP meant by creases, perhaps they mispelt dent!

Like I said, silly me!

Cracked bumper and rear lights wont fail and MoT or a VIC check, only if parts of the light are missing and white light is showing through or sharp edges.

The wifes MR2 was writen of due to total loss for a dented door, its insane really, we just had to put new MoT on it and they didnt even bother coming out for the VIC just applied, sent the MoT and got the V5 back.
