    I visited SMC today. They have four MG3s and are waiting for some 6s, though they do not yet have planning permission for a sign!

    Their 3Style in Orange Marmalade was on display.



    as was this 3Form Sport in Cherry Bomb with salesman Martin Lang:



    Martin took me for a spin in the demo 3 which is in fact a 3Form Sport in Lady Grey. Martin drove this car down from Longbridge himself last week and today it only had under 200 miles on the clock!



    The signage of the dealership is awaiting planning permission but here's what it looks like now with a lovely Rose Red MG3:



    Thanks to Martin for giving me the test drive. Around SMC there is a 50mph distributor road on which you can stretch the 3's legs and some smaller roads you can test its manoeuvrability on.

    Anyone who wants to see, and perhaps test drive, an MG can take up Martin's invitation by ringing him on (01483) 720322.
