    Following on from the UAE article, MG seems to be spreading through the GCC:

    Chinese SAIC MG 550 and MG 750 in Oman
    by Mashfique Hussain Chowdhury

    While the Rover-derived Chinese Roewe models, rebadged as MG, are still undergoing testing in the UAE before its imminent launch, the MG 550 as well as the MG 750 are already on sale in Oman via an official dealer.

    As one of our readers, Harish, pointed out, local Omani dealer Mohsin Haider Darwish LLC is offering the compact MG 550 1.8T and the midsize MG 750 2.5 V6 only, each in a single trim level, and both built in China.

    The 2011 MG 550 1.8T comes with a 160 hp 1.8-litre light-pressure turbo 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed automatic, 16-inch alloys wheels, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, cruise control, stability control, two front airbags, ABS with EBD, fabric seats, one-press engine start with the key still requiring insertion, steering-mounted radio controls, power windows and mirrors, automatic climate control a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with 8 speakers, keyless entry, illuminated sunshade mirrors, digital gauges and fog lights.

    The 2011 MG 750 2.5, based fully on a facelifted Rover 75, comes with a 185 hp 2.5-litre V6, 5-speed automatic, 16-inch alloy wheels, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, cruise control, dual front airbags, stability control, ABS with EBD, leather seats, power-adjustable driver’s seat, adjustable steering wheel, steering-mounted radio controls, automatic climate control a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with 8 speakers, sunroof, keyless entry, auto headlights, cooled central cubby box, illuminated sunshade mirrors and parking sensors.

    Prices are reportedly higher than expected, starting above the equivalent of Dhs 60,000, though we don’t have confirmation on that. The warranty is for 3 years or 80,000 km.

    When did they introduce keyless entry?

    And this bit seems odd: "one-press engine start with the key still requiring insertion"; does any other manufacturer have this setup?

    when launched in china!!
    apparantly some of the dealers have asked mg not to fit it in the uk as they reckon it's not reliable. they want a normal key and fob.
