    MG3 at carshop.co.uk

    "UK's largest car supermarket" in Northampton, Swindon, Doncaster & Norwich. A quick way to get some geographical spread.

    Is it a good idea? The MG3 sitting there, loaded with toys and priced very keenly as punters walk by looking for something second hand for the same money.... I wonder how the smaller, independent dealers feel? And I suppose this rules out being picked up by some of the larger dealer groups.

    Interesting that they didn't use Motorpoint (yet).

    Not sure about this. The website wont let me click on the MG3 for more info either.

    They are still full price though right?!

    The launch is today so maybe they haven't got up to speed yet. Or maybe it's just how it'll be!

    I don't see why other dealers should be worried, in fact having more MG3s on the road must be good for people that service MGs. At the end of the day this is just four more dealers to compete with.

    Most dealers make most of their money from servicing so unless they happen to be just down the road from one of these then it wont make much difference and even if they are then they can probably provide a better service than someone not dedicated to the brand. They all have to compete with the likes of Halfords at servicing.

    Carshop are a part of Cambden Ventures who are in the top 20 motor traders in the UK, think it is a very good move.

    I think they sold nearly 100 MG6's in around 12 months

    Ah, so it's not a totally new business relationship, more of an extension of an existing one. I think that's positive; shows trust on both sides.
