I have found a 180 in silver with 62k miles not too far from me, I will probably go have a look on Saturday, at least I know what to look out for.
Was too late for the silver 180 . . . at the end of September 2016 I finally got a replacement car . . . it was Black, with a V6 engine, 54 plate, saloon, no extreme spoiler but it had a sunroof . . . oh yes, had an MG badge on the front and back. :lol: So it was almost the same as the written off car I had from new.

Will never be a replacement but it's close.

More recently it stopped on the way to work . . . Friday 13th of April as it happens, turns out the cam belt was a mess and there was engine damage, easiest and cheapest option was to find a replacement engine. Was just about to give up and one turned up, 62k miles . . . so now have my ZS back with an engine transplant with new belts, water pump, aux belt, new clutch kit, new discs and pads all round. Have also fitted a new OS mirror to replace the one that someone accidentally broke and forgot to tell me about.

All the work, 1st class work, was done by Andy at MG Prestige in Rugely.

Go back to the Mr Breen days, still around Dave? Been a while since I popped in. Got rid of Katie the 180 2 years ago now to an enthusiast down Cornwall way. She is still sorely missed, replaced with a MG 6 TSE reliable car but no where near same performance, but have bought RV8 to compensate:) Still have wife's TF 80th Anniversary and 1971 Midget. My son still has his 180 Mk2 and a Mk1 and our old Monty turbo.

Faceplant / social media has taken over so much these days and i do find it useful on the better sites but 80% is still utter ****e of dreamers and ****s who know nothing but keep asking the same old questions and cant be arsed to do any of there own research!
