On Thursday 9th January four members of the Pinner
Natter visited MG Longbridge to have a good look at the new MG3. One of the
members (i.e. me!) wanted to order one and another member was very interested.
We were made very welcome and had the opportunity to have a good look at all of
the models available as well as the different colours, trim and wheel options
and personalisation options. All of the MG staff were exceptionally helpful and
answered a large number of questions. After viewing we were given an opportunity
to test drive the car and we were all suitably impressed. As a result one MG3
was ordered with the probability of another following shortly.
In the afternoon we enjoyed a 2 hour tour of the historical part
of Longbridge, a visit to the factory and a look at the Design Studio where all
of the MG models are initiated. It was interesting to see the mock-up of a car
which looked very similar to the MG5!
All in all a superb day out and one that is recommended to all
MGCC members. If you go on a Thursday you can go on the factory tour as well.
