    That is what I was thinking, I do with the sales graphs - "www.mguk.org", but it is up to Roverman to do his if he wants to.





    I like the first one, but I think they have made the right choice, the chosen one does look like an MG and definitely unlike other brands, people who want to make them look more sporty or whatever can customise their cars.


    Thanks Roverman Very Happy

    They are interesting - thanks.

    Sometimes you see a design for something and think "that was far better" - e.g. Leyland P45 Roadtrain - but I, too, am happy that the one they're actually making is pretty good! Wink

    3rd one is best, better than the one they chose I think. The LEDs kick out, which I don't much like, and the front bumper flares very heavily too. 3rd one down has a tidier bumper.

    You and me both, I think it was a close run thing between it and what we actually got.

    Looking at the finished front, I think it works best in darker colours as the dark insert highlights paler body colours on the 'flared' corners.

    It has a very 'friendly' face - again, not a bad thing, but I would have liked to have seen a contoured bonnet like the MG5.

    That said, it isn't a barrier to buying one and is certainly distinctive.

    Thanks for those, very interesting. 

    The straight copy of the zero looks strange.

    I think they made the right choice in the end.

    I agree, the Zero front does sort of age the car also
