MG ZS 180

Got bored of having a economical diesel Focus......so sold it lol

So now back in a MG!

Now got a 2002 MG ZS 180, 79k on the clock. Full service history Inc every receipt and original order forms and letters from dealership. All old mot's. It's solid, could do with a machine polish but still polishes up well. It's a great drivers car.

The Infinity speakers in the parcel shelf, fitted by a previous owner were past there best.



So got a pair of these. In Halfords reduced from 45 to 36 then down to 30 with my trade card.





All fitted, sound loads clearer and look loads better too.

All ready for harrogate tomorrow.

Also got the rear trailing arm bushes replaced, just need a front drivers side caliper now.

Inside hovered, all plastics cleaned, and leather treated.



Outside 3 staged cleaned, polished and waxed. Will do for now.















And then it rained overnight!

Got the Longlife custom stainless steel back box fitted. 2.5" bore with 2.5" rolled out tip. Excellent job done by Paul @ Evans Performance in Middlesbrough. Sounds nice and subtle at low/constant speeds, but when you open it up! WOW!!! Sounds like a touring car!!!
