I would love to say something relevant here, but I'm lost! Need a few more clues I'm afraid. :(

Could it be if you don't actually mod the car just rebadge it? In MGR's case the ZR-ZS and ZT have had a total rework regarding suspension in comparison to the Rover equivalents. :D

It's simpler than that, I won't say yet, I'll let you think about it and see if there is any response from others.:)

I now the know answer, but all I'll be doing is cutting and pasting the same story from another BB! So I won't either! I'm trying to sign off the otherboard but can't! :confused:

A slight clue for you, Ford, VW, Seat, Nissan, Vauxhall, Opel and many many more badge engineer and no-one minds, but the time it is knocked and frowned upon is when .. ..... does it. Just fill in the dots:)

Gets back to the usual story of the brits being the first to knock the brits again.

Some manufacturers can merely add a new beverage holder and the press are falling over themselves to aclaim it as 'a substantially re-engineered and much transformed car' whilst others can totally change the engine, suspension, steering etc and the press are quick to say 'much the same, new badge fitted'.

MG Rover is the only company that seem to be criticised for badge engineering, utter madness.

Perhaps if MGR started to issue all of its press releases in german and had all of its correspondance delivered to a PO box in Stutgart things may be different. After all the british motoring press seem gullable enough to accept what other manufacturers say at face value.
