Mg Zr 160 - The Pocket Rocket — Fantastic performance... a real 'pocket rocket', Very light weight body, and good styling - a real head turner. Interior styling a bit basic, but overall an extremely fun car to drive! Fuel economy is pretty decent. The only model I would recommend was mine (top of the range) MG ZR 160 (160bhp)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fantastic performance and handling, good body styling

Cons: Safety / Build Quality

My Mg Zr — This car is very quick and handles like a housefly. The uild quality isn't that great but all that aside the running costs are quite cheap and i can't remember the last time i had that much fun in a car. The only bad thing about them is they are prone to blowing head gaskets and piston rings but if you service them regularly and don't rag them too much they should last quite a while. Mine was the 105 bhp 1.4 twin cam engine. Very fast for a 1.4. The only reason i got rid of it was i couldn't fit the nippers pram in the boot.

Pros: Good fun,

Cons: Head gaskets/ piston rings

Mg Zr 160 — The MG ZR, especially the ZR 160, can be compeared ot the VW golf for its performance. 2 times winner of the 2 WD rally championship, the car offers a solid sport setting in short space, a rela condensate of fun. 1.8 liters 160 hp, 0-60 mp/h in just 6.7 seconds, top speed of about 215 km per h!!! it is a really nice small piece of car. the design maybe isnt the bets u can find, still i love it!!

Pros: performance, resistance, confort.

Cons: some terminations are that good. if u make long trips, like more than 2000km, it is not that confortable.

Gorgeous Little Car — Looked good inside and out. Inerior build quality a little poor. Handled like it was on rails altough the abs used to get in the way sometimes. Rover engine unrealiable.

Rover.... That's All, Rover. — Overall a great disappointment, faux leather seats that a bulemic would have trouble being comfortable in, geat gearbox when it's not slipping out of third and not not going into reverse, good performance up until third gear where it kind of forgets what it was doing. Ride quality was horrendous and broke my back and the steering was poor despite having a 300mm racing steering wheel.

Pros: um, looks alright

Cons: build quality, handling, ride, comfort, blah blah
