Default Bought my first ZT

I have been a lurker of these forums for years, and some of you may know me off mgrover.org. I have just bought a MG ZT 135 + cdti, 164,000 miles in Royal blue. It drives lovely, no knocks or anything. Just needs a tidy up.

Thank you, it is a rare colour it seems too. I have previously owned two MG6s and this is far superior to both 6s.

Doesn't look like it needs much tidying, in fact it looks lovely, except the driver's seat looks a bit bobbly. Is the material alcantara, rather than real suede? My Mitsubishi has alcantara, and suffers in the same way.

The pictures do it justice haha, there are various dents, scratches on body, paint peeling off chrome, spoiler lacquer peel and a tiny bit of rust on o/s rear arch...sills look okay...so will treat before it spreads down the sills.

And yes the front seats are both bobbly, I have started to debobble the passenger seat, but the drivers seat has gone too far, sagging material and cuts at the front. I think it is just alcantara.

Nice car
As for making piccies smaller, I now edit them and either alter the size that way, or crop out unwanted bits, before attaching to posts.
