    MG Motor UK was proud to be part of the Royal Windsor MG Heritage Festival success

    29.04.09




    On Saturday April 25, Windsor town centre was brought to a standstill as hundreds of MGs descended on Windsor Great Park to take part in the Royal Windsor MG Heritage Festival and to celebrate 85 years of the MG marque.

    MG Motor UK was the main sponsor of the Festival and unveiled the latest two derivatives of the MG TF - the TF 135 and the limited edition 85th Anniversary model. Future details on the new models will be announced shortly.

    The 85th anniversary car led a 220 strong cavalcade, representing almost all of the models produced by MG since 1924, through the Quadrangle in Windsor Castle, past Prince Phillip and into Frogmore in the Great Park. The procession also included the 1.5 millionth MG to be produced, a unique TF made to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002. The watching crowd and participants alike enjoyed the spectacle of this memorable part of the day.

    The Duke of Edinburgh, who owned an MG TC in 1946, hosted the parade, and the proceeds went towards the Prince Philip Trust Fund for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, now in its 25th year. Other activities including multi-start scenic road runs which enabled other MG owners to be involved in this fantastic event. The Prince Philip Fund helps the welfare of under privileged people and assists in training young people and encourages them to undertake voluntary work.

    As part of our participation in the event, MG Motor UK also donated a brand new MG TF LE500 to the Prince Phillip Trust Fund for auction to help raise further funds.

    Prince Phillip and Mr He Xiaoqing, MG Motor UK Ltd President took part in a tree planting ceremony in the castle grounds to provide a permanent reminder of the event. In due course, a commemorative plaque will also be placed in the area.

    Mr He Xiaoqing said "To be major sponsors of the Royal Windsor MG Heritage Festival, such a prestigious event, in MG’s 85th year was extremely exciting and a very proud moment for us. It has been an honour to be involved in such a wonderful event as only the third automotive marque to receive this accolade, which has raised money for The Prince Philip Trust Fund. It has also been the perfect celebration of MG enthusiasts’ commitment and ongoing enthusiasm for the brand. We are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Windsor & Eton and the MG Owners Club for organising the event and inviting us to take part.’’

    Windsor Success Heralds Launch Of Two New MGs
    30.04.09

    http://www.mgmotor.co.uk/news-events/news/windsor-success-heralds-launch-of-two-new-mgs/

    The MG Heritage Festival which took place at Windsor Castle on the 24th April 2009 has been hailed a success by organisers, sponsors, participants and the public alike.

    The event, held to mark the 85th anniversary of MG, was attended by HRH Prince Phillip who watched over 200 MGs parade through the quadrangle of Windsor Castle. Following the cavalcade the cars drove on to take part in a historic rally in Windsor Great Park.

    The whole event was sponsored by MG Motor UK Ltd. Gary Hagen, Sales & Marketing Director, said. “We were delighted to be invited to support the festival and used it as an appropriate opportunity to launch the two latest cars to come from MG at Longbridge; the MGTF 135 and a limited edition MG TF, created especially to mark the 85th Anniversary.”

    The MG TF135 will be competitively priced to bring the iconic British sportscar within reach of many more drivers. With great levels of trim and equipment, MG is confident that the TF135 will prove to be a popular choice with summer on the way.

    Also on show at the festival, and due for launch later this summer, was the MGTF 85th Anniversary model. This is a very special car that is being produced to mark the 85th anniversary of the MG Brand. It will be available in three unique colours, has special 85th anniversary graphics and stunning aubergine leather trim.

    Further details of the TF135 & 85th Anniversary models will be announced shortly.

    just hope he didn't mention the physical characteristics (eyes, height, skin colour) of the Japanese too much to his Chinese guests! Laughing

    Especially if he was in 'high spirits'(!) Laughing

    Though anyone from Nanjing (particularly) or Shanghai has good historical reason to dislike the Japanese...not that today's Japanese people under 80 had anything to do with the war...

    ...and as for the British presence in Shanghai to sell opium, I'll not go there...

    I was just thinking, we tend to consider MG a historical marque, but it makes you think if MG hadn't even been thought of when the Duke of Edinburgh was born!

    Scrap the old car and buy a new TF Darling? Don’t mind if I do

    Post by richardk on Mon May 11, 2009 8:37 am

    Scrap the old car and buy a new TF Darling? Don’t mind if I do

    11.05.09

    MG Motor UK Ltd is very pleased to today confirm that we have agreed our participation in the new Car and Van Scrappage scheme announced by the Chancellor, Alistair Darling, in the recent budget.

    The scheme launches officially on Monday 18th May and will enable the registered keepers of circa 10.5 million qualifying cars and vans currently on the road in the UK to effectively use their existing vehicle as a ‘voucher’ to reduce the price of a new TF by £2000. This ‘voucher’ is redeemed by taking the qualifying car or van to the dealer for scrapping when the new car is ordered with MG Motor UK Ltd and the Government each contributing the sum of £1000 to be deducted from the list price (inclusive of VAT).

    The basic qualifying points of the scheme are as follows:

    • The car you want to scrap must be more than 10 years old.

    • You must be the registered keeper of the car you intend to scrap and become the registered keeper of the new car.

    • You must have been the registered keeper of the car to be scrapped for at least twelve months.

    • The car to be scrapped must have a valid MOT certificate OR one that has expired less than 14 days before you place an order for your new TF.

    • The dealer with whom the order is placed will be responsible for arranging to scrap your car to ensure accordance with the scheme’s requirements.

    Although the scheme will not officially begin to operate until Monday Click here to find details of your local MG dealer, who will be only too pleased to talk to you about the scheme in more detail and discuss the exciting possibility of swapping a qualifying vehicle for one of the last available MG TF LE 500’s from an amazing £14,055 OTR.

    We know that some of you may not want to part with your old MG and can fully understand this but please remember that any make, model and age of qualifying car or van can be scrapped through an MG dealer under this scheme.

    If your old car was being used by your son or daughter before they went off to university, ask yourself this: Would it really be all that bad if they had to use public transport for a little while during the holidays? Isn’t that a small price to pay to get £2000 off the TF that Mum and Dad have always fancied? You’ve always looked after them, surely now it’s about a bit of you time? The new MG TF for £14,055 – you know you want to!

    MG Motor UK Limited must regrettably confirm that, due to Government stipulation, our dealers on Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man are unable to take part in this scheme.

    So you still have to pay the VAT on the bit you don't have to pay, and even on the bit the dealer doesn't charge you!

    Glad they point out that you don't have to destroy an MG Smile

    I spoke with Eleanor de la Haye at LB way back last September and she warned that 2009 would be more or less a blank news year for Longbridge, as the company was setting itself for the UK re-launch in 2010 and EEC a year later. These dates have probably been put back a little because of the recession i would guess. But at the time she wass quite adamant that Longbridge was to be the manufacturing (probably assembly) base for MG in Europe as she did not think that the Western market was ready for Chinese manufactured cars. I am guessing in that respect, that Chinese manufacturing generally has a less than acceptable reputation in this part of the world (though there is nothing to suggest to me that SAIC are anything but thorough). You've also got to remember that MG will be marketed as a unique British mark and this has been stated time and again in SAIC's business plans.

    SAIC are not daft in my view, and I would do exactly the same if I was in their shoes. The government here is being shot at from pillar to post. It's faults in it's own economic strategy over the years in too much of a reliance on the City without balancing the needs of engineering and manufacturing and earning GDP through exports, is being exposed. Through Lord Mandlesson, the government have now nailed their colours to the mast by stating recently that car manufacturing in this country is now strategically of the highest importance (pitty they didn't realise that during the MGR JV talks). To coin a phrase, SAIC have got them by the short and curlies and will squeeze out every bit of assistance to return some form of employment in a key marginal seat as they can. The fact that the announcement might be made in the run up to a General Election could be construed as politically motivated but when you look into the timing, it does fit in neatly with NAC's original planning.

    Thanks Perkins,

    Well that's a price of £11,511 on the road - a brand new, rear wheel drive, mid engined, open top sports car for silly money!

    I know we are in a recession, but that's a bargain and should attract a few sales!

    03.06.09







    Jaybee
    Motors, MG Motor UK Ltd dealer for Oxfordshire and the South Midlands
    will be at Burford Wildlife Park on Sunday 7th June. Jaybee will be
    displaying an MG TF LE500,
    as part of this fun day out that will attract over 350 MG’s in the
    stunning location of Burford Wildlife Park and its gorgeous grounds.
    Burford Wildlife Park is located in 160 acres of stunning countryside
    on the Oxfordshire & Gloucestershire borders. Dealer
    Principal & Managing Director of Jaybee Motors John Dauphin said:
    “We were absolutely delighted to be invited by the Oxfordshire MG
    Owners Club to attend this fun event, which enables us to represent MG
    Motor and show off the latest MG TF LE500. We are really looking
    forward to seeing the many classic MG’s that will be on show, but
    especially the MGA’s, MGB’s and MGC’s. If the weather continues to be
    warm and sunny, I cannot imagine a better way of spending a Sunday”. He
    went on to say “apart from enjoying the selection of 350 MG’s on

    in the Wildlife Park. The penguins and the monkeys are my personal
    favourites.’’ Anyone who wishes to attend is very welcome and

    However it won’t all be work, hopefully, and like John I am anxious to
    see all the wildlife. Aleksandr the Meerkat is apparently making an
    appearance, with the rest of the family. Obviously an opportunity to
    compare the Meerkat & MG’s all in one go. As Aleksandr would say
    “simples”. Jaybee MotorsT. 01295 227 100

    http://www.mgmotor.co.uk/news-events/news/great-value-new-mg--mg-tf-135/

    22.06.09


    MG has launched the new MG TF135 with an unbeatable price of just £13,511 on the road. With the government’s recently announced scrappage scheme, the price of the car has tumbled to a fantastic £11,511.

    Jack Safiruddin, Sales & After sales Operations Manager for MG, said;

    “The MG TF LE500 was well received thanks to its amazing specification and we expect the new MG TF 135 to be equally popular thanks to its compelling price tag. Initial models will also be fitted with leather interior at no cost to the customers*.”

    A range of new colours, new wheels, new trim and a new ICE will set the 135 apart from its LE brother. Yet it maintains the refinements that have made the brand’s eagerly awaited return to production so rewarding for those taking delivery of the latest cars.

    Jack concluded; “The MGTF 135 complements the MGTF LE500 and the new MGTF 85th Anniversary thanks to its competitive price point. This 135 mainline model goes back to the roots of the TF as a classy sportster for everyone to enjoy. There is growing interest in MG and we remain delighted with the way the brand has returned to the market.”

    SISTERS BUY IDENTICAL TF LE500’S

    SISTERS BUY IDENTICAL TF LE500’S


    05.08.09


    Perkins of Rayne, MG Motor UK Ltd dealer for Rayne in Essex, was delighted when they recently sold identical MG TF LE500’s to local sisters Shani Herman and Carol Barber.
    Shani and Carol now both own MG TF LE500’s in Graphite Grey with which they are absolutely delighted. The sisters saw the LE500 on display at a local event. Shani said ‘’we sat in the car and fell in love with it’’.
    The ladies loved the car so much that they visited their nearest dealer and told them they wanted one each. When Shani and Carol collected their cars from the dealership they were presented with a bunch of flowers.
    Phil Bunyard, MG Brand Manager, at Perkins of Rayne said ‘’the ladies were a pleasure to deal with and they were both very impressed with the new car. Although Mrs Herman was already an MG owner, Mrs Barber soon decided that the MG TF LE500 was the car for her.’’
    The sisters recently had some sad news when their mother passed away and they thought they would do something that would make their mother smile. Carol said ‘’the cars are a present from mum, she would have loved it’’. Shani said ‘’the whole experience has been very special’’.
    The sisters took their new cars on a picturesque drive, near the seaside in Suffolk. Carol, who used to own a Mazda MX5, said ‘’the TF LE500 is a good size, very sporty and is extremely good value for money’’.

    Mini Celebrates 50th Birthday at Cofton Park, Longbridge

    10.08.09









    The
    International Mini meeting and Mini’s 50th birthday was held at Cofton
    Park in Longbridge, the home of Mini on Friday 7th until Sunday 9th
    August 2009. The International Mini meeting occurs every five years and
    with it being held in conjunction with Mini’s 50th birthday, it seemed
    very fitting that the event was held at Longbridge, where Minis were
    manufactured continuously for 41 years. There were many classic
    Minis on display at the event, including Minis manufactured in 1959,
    the Mini 40, the RSP Cooper, the Mini Moke and many more. A very
    special Mini Heritage Run took place on Saturday 8th August 2009 from
    the Heritage Motor Centre to the IMM’s Mini 50th celebrations at Cofton
    Park and on Sunday 9th August a cavalcade of Minis went from Cofton
    Park along a designated route into Centenary Square, and then Broad
    Street in the centre of Birmingham. The event attracted visitors from
    all over the world, including Spain, America, Portugal and Australia.
    Crowds gathered on Saturday and Sunday at the MG Motor UK Ltd
    Headquarters, Longbridge to watch Russ Swift do some Mini stunt driving
    to the Italian job theme tune. MG Motor UK Ltd had a stand at
    the event, which displayed the new 85th Anniversary car, which is
    available in three limited edition colours, new 16’’ alloy wheel
    design, new interior trim, exclusive 85th graphics and ‘TF85’ branded
    alloy gear lever, the base model TF 135
    available in seven colours with a 1.8 16v N Series engine for £13,511
    OTR and the TF LE500, which comes with a free hard top, piano black
    interior, rear parking sensors, 16’’ alloy wheels and each car is
    individually numbered for £16,055 OTR. Jack Safiruddin, MG
    Motor UK Ltd Sales & Aftersales Operations Manager said ‘’The Mini
    and MG have a lot in common, both cars are iconic, British and
    Longbridge is their home. It was wonderful to be part of such a
    significant event and great to see such a large turnout of fans, who
    travelled from all over of the World to celebrate Mini’s 50th
    birthday.’’

    yes, business confidence seems to be picking up a bit (though we're still in the doo doo). When is a good time to launch a car? I would have thought Spring was best, not only for sportscars.

    Dealer showcases new MGs at club event


    11.08.09






    MG’s official dealer in Banbury, Jaybee Motors, was delighted to attend a meeting of the MG Car Club at the prestigious location of Wyevale, at Avenue Retail Park in Bicester on Sunday 9th of August.
    John Dauphin Managing Director of Jaybee Motors who was at the show, said “It was a fabulous day, we were delighted to be invited by the MG Car Club, and to be able to showcase the New MG TF LE 500 & TF 135. Apart from the obvious high quality of build, most people were really surprised at the superb value that both models represent. The weather was ideal, and the TFs looked stunning in the venue.”
    Apart from the interests in the LE500 and the TF 135, dealer representatives answered a lot of enquiries about the TF 85th Anniversary model, which is due for release shortly. There was unanimous praise for its classy styling and most people commented on what an investment they are likely to be. MG Car Club did a magnificent job of organising the event, and Wyevale’s great hospitality which made everyone feel very welcome.
    Colin Corne, Jaybee’s Aftersales Manager, added “Overall a great day out, we really enjoyed meeting all the enthusiasts and general public alike and look forward to doing another event at a similar venue soon.”

    MG Men Behind the Scenes 6

    25.08.09







    Richard Hales Regional Operations Manager I
    joined MG in September 2008 having an extensive AfterSales background
    with MG as the Field Technical Manager and have since progressed to
    Regional Operations Manager. Basically I manage a third of the MG
    dealers which cover all of Scotland down to the East coast as far as
    Colchester; yes, a very large area where the dealers are well spread
    out. The role is to support the dealers in all aspects of operations
    for Sales and AfterSales. This is indeed a challenge which brings great
    rewards. I thoroughly enjoy meeting different people and working with
    them. The summer has seen our dealers carry out various outdoor
    events promoting the new MG brand and products. I have supported some
    of these and managed to get sun burnt at a Royal show, soaked at a
    shopping centre and frozen at a country show. I volunteered to help at
    these because I wanted to gauge for myself the general public’s
    reaction to the new MGs! There has been a definite correlation to
    dealers taking the cars out of the dealerships to local events in terms
    of subsequent sales. The message of “MG is BACK” is starting to get
    around! Like many jobs, Mondays are always very busy days and
    today is no different. I have been working on the Monday morning
    reports that my dealers send me in order to capture all the previous
    weeks’ sales data. I’m pleased to say July was a great month for retail
    and wholesale and August is looking good also. With my admin
    completed its time to set off to my first dealer visit of the day to an
    MG dealership in Cambridge, this takes me just over an hour journey
    time whilst I can take dealers phone calls (good job I have a good
    hands free kit). Keeping the communication with my dealers is an
    important part of this role. Dealers often want on the spot information
    which can be crucial to capturing a sale. Then it’s off again
    for a 3 hour journey to our dealer in Harrogate. Due to the journey
    time I will stay in a hotel, which provides a chance to check my emails
    and attend to any issues. It also provided me with the opportunity to
    compile this article. Tuesday I have more appointments across the
    region I operate within. Do I enjoy my job? Definitely, and the highlight is when I see a dealer hand over a beautiful MG TF to its proud new owner. This is an exciting time for all involved.

    people in the club own TFs and now I have the latest version out of all
    of the members". Andrew Soul, Dealer Principal at Souls of
