    We are proud to announce that the Warners Motor Group has agreed to take on the MG franchise and this will be going ‘live’ during late October.  Warners will be Gloucestershire’s only new MG showroom and will be offering all the normal, comprehensive Service and Parts facilities to all MG owners in the county
    ATM Wilcox of Wickwar, Glos. who are also a Citroën dealer like Luffield still are are advertising new MG6 and TF - but not 3.

    EDIT "Existing W" is of course Wilcox and they have stocked MGs and Rovers for years. Maybe "new W" mean they are the "only one of the class of 2013" in Gloucestershire... "good old keep the faith W" are in fact expanding their MG operation...

    MG Motor press release (my bold):

    Gloucester Rugby Club captain, Tom Savage, will be among the guests at the official opening of Warners MG in Gloucester.

    The official opening of the new MG dealership takes place from 6pm on Tuesday, November 26 and it will certainly have a strong rugby flavour.

    Alongside the Gloucester captain, Matt Bayliss - who is one of the best-known faces in Gloucester rugby circles - will be at the opening. Matt is the Communications Manager for Hartpury College’s rugby club where Tom Savage played his rugby before  joining the Aviva championship side.

    Chris Smart, Warners’ Director and Dealer Principal, said: “It’s great that these well-known rugby characters are supporting our new MG venture.

    “Tom’s a 6ft 6ins, 18-stone forward and seems to slot into the new MG3 with ease, so if he can then anyone can! We know that space and comfort are among the many wining features of the new MG and I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.”

    Matt Bayliss seems equally comfortable in an MG6 GT and he will be soon seen around many of the rugby clubs in Gloucestershire in his new car.

    Warners MG has a new four-car showroom on its busy site which faces the busy A38 Eastern Avenue, Gloucester’s ring road.  


    Guests on the opening night who book an MG test drive will be given a £25 voucher and Warners are expecting plenty of takers!

    Gloucester City Councillor Lise Noakes will also attend the formal opening.

      Current date/time is Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:45 pm
