Well peeps, i dont believe it!!! Second zed ive had and second time paint has stripped off it! :eek: Just washed all the salt off it from yesterdays journey and the passenger door strip, a 10cm area, the paint has just peeled clean off!!!! :evil: So looks like a trip to the dealers tomorro! Exactly same thing happened to my first zed and the front bumper!

So is it just my zeds that the paint is sh*t on???? ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

yup the only way to wash a car safely in mg's opinion is by hand..........no jet washers, no mechanical washer....... just elbow grease!

why dont they bloody tell you that when u buy the car ](*,)

Some of the Trophy Blue Zeds definately had a problem with paint adhesion, usually on the front spoiler. I have a dealer MG Technical Information Bulletin somewhere, relating to the problem as obviously I have vested interest in case the problem occurs on mine.

What colour is yours mate?
