My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

MG Motor UK is bringing the new MG GS to people nationwide as part of its regional test drive tour.
MG Motor UK is bringing the new MG GS to people nationwide as part of its regional test drive tour. The MG GS is over halfway through its tour of the country, where the MG team has been taking it to the public, in various locations, to give them the opportunity to have a drive and find out more about the newest addition.
So far the MG GS has been to Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Huntingdon and Maidstone. The MG team has had great feedback with many drivers expressing interest in purchasing then and there. Seven sales quotes were prepared at Huntingdon for customers who were bowled over by the MG GS.
Having test driven the MG GS Exclusive DCT, Mr Webb said: "Simply, I could not in any way consider a repeat purchase of my existing model, not because I don't enjoy it but at roughly £10,000 more than the GS, I'd simply be wasting my money. This is a car I've been waiting for and I'm very, very impressed."
Other comments have included:
“It drove exceptionally well, the handling was great – not at all what I expected from an SUV.”
“Really impressed with the engine and the pull away, even in 6th.”
“The boot space is very impressive and with the fold-flat seats, there’s plenty of space for my mountain bikes.”
“Very good handling, even down narrow lanes and uneven surfaces I felt this car would get me on my way no bother.”
Over 200 people will have driven the new SUV when it concludes its tour next week. The remaining locations are Birmingham (MG Sales Centre, Longbridge) on Saturday 2 July, Exeter (Sandy Park) on Tuesday 5 July and Bridgend (Nathaniel MG Sales Centre) on Thursday 7 July.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing for MG, said: “These regional test drives have been a fantastic way of bringing to the new MG GS to the public, particularly for those who aren’t familiar with the newest addition to the MG brand.
“We are really pleased with how well the MG GS has been received, as it really is a great car. The aim of this road show was to let people get behind the wheel of the MG GS and experience our new SUV for themselves. The feedback we’ve received so far and the amount of people interested in purchasing has been phenomenal.”
