    Cool Hello from Kent

    Hello Fr3nchy here,

    Brought my car about 2/3 months ago, 1.4 MG ZR as below





    brought for £625 with 90,000+ Miles on the clock only a few issues when I brought it that being it needed a new front tyre and the heater resistor had gone both of which were pretty easy to sort out, other then that all good it came with a aftermarket stereo which wasn't to bad but it did lead me to my first upgrade:



    The standard speakers were ok but knew I could better sound quality so went and brought the Edge Speakers and Tweeters for £65 from Halfords and also fitted my Sub in the boot too

    Since buying it, it stayed the way it was brought other then the speaker upgrade until last week when I went a bit made on ebay buying stickers for the rear and also using the guide and advice on here I de-wipered the rear also,

    4 of them stickers can be seen here:


    then one more here above the exhaust:


    Here is the car now:






    Future Upgrades:
    Replace Shitty rear lexus lights (I cant stand them)
    Fix tear in driver seat fabric (May lead to a whole new interior :P)
    New alloys
    Seat Leon Cupra R Splitter
    Xsara Washer Jets (On Order)
    Induction Kit
    Aero Wiper Blades
    Crystal Black Indicators
    A throttle body from a ZR160

    Anywho I will keep this updated when ever there is a update to be had until then Hi all hopefully see you around soon

    Hi guys little update as such, was looking at getting these seats as a upgrade for the front seats:



    Question being I'd like to use the original subframes to save some money so was wondering how easy do we think it would be to do? Or should I just spend the extra and buy new subframes?

    it's the little touches like that that make a car for me.

    my 5dr fob is spot on, my 3dr one looks like it's been raped by rats.
    Ordered a new fob casing, but it'd not arrived yet
