    Dealer changes

    Post by richardk on Sat Mar 27, 2010 1:07 pm

    Noticed a few changes on the dealer map on MGs website...

    New - Maple Garage - HU11 4NA

    Deleted - Bay Horse in NW and Panda Motors in Swansea (that's odd as they have MG logo on their website http://www.pandamotors.net/

    Anyone nearby to check these changes out?

    Crawley Down Group in Copthorne, nr Crawley Sussex is no longer an MG dealer according to their web site.

    mguk.org says they are Aftersales only.

    However, CDG still proudly claim:

    "Here at Crawley Down Rover we are proud to have Approved Repairer status
    for Rover vehicles.

    Our service facility houses all the latest equipment to enable us to
    service or repair your Rover to the highest specification and always use
    genuine Rover parts."

    Are there many Dutch people in Holland who drive cars with the steering wheel on the correct side? Or will you be the first?

    Yes double checked Time Tees website earlier and there was no mention of MG.

    Seems like some of the early adopters have decided not to continue - pehaps due to showroom change costs or something like that. But more are joining than leaving by the looks of it.

    I wish MG would give us a change list it's hard to keep up!

    I don't even know what she looks like, it was a facebook post! They tend to say "e-mail Keith Harris" so I suppose that's what you should do...

    In the south west there is also Lynx Garage in Yeovil who have been a new entry on the MG website recently but when I went to see them they had not signed their contract and were a little annoyed at being mentioned by MG, so I have a feeling some of the other new names may still be only at the final negotiation stage. Lynx now expect their first cars by the end of October.

    Hopefully when all these new ones do get up an running the sales will start to move - 42 in September is pretty dire and at 10 sales a week - where are they storing the other 56 they make a week (recent BCC interview with MG said production is now 66 a week)?

    How can anyone be annoyed at being given free publicity that actually brings potential customers through the doors? They should be pleased, especially with cars turning up soon.

    Yep, I was a bit surpried at their approach, but they did take my details and are going to invite me to their launch weekend! When I told him about their attitude, Keith at MG said they were going to put 'comming soon' on the website for forthcomming dealers in future. Also he said they are well advanced in discussions with a new dealer in Poole, Dorset so that may be a better location for me.

    We live in intersting times ..!

    that's interesting, the nearest Rover dealers used to be in Corfe Mullen. Not an easy place to get to without a car (e.g. during service) without a lift.

    Wonder if there's someone interested in Parkstone? Thinking about where the dealers are, it's along Poole Road (Branksome)/Ashley Road and Ringwood Road/Tower Park...

    Could be. As I mentioned to him, the Poole/B'mth/XChurch conurbation is the 10th largest popualation centre in the UK so they need representation there now Sewards have given up..
