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.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.
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.
