I haven't seen any from the outside on the road either, but I did test drive one out of Longbridge so have seen one from inside on the road. :). From the brief time I had with it, it seemed a very competent family car, the handling in particular was very sharp.
Judging by the prices of vehicles being sold directly from Longbridge they don't seem to be much sought after.

I saw one drive through our village a few weeks ago. I don't know if it's a local car or not; we don't get much through traffic so it probably is.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Ive seen two on the road!! One on the A15 just past RAF Waddington and one heading North on the M6 a few weeks ago. The diesel might boost the sales a bit, but nobody knows about the car so a good advert campaign wouldn't hurt in my opinion.

I have only seen one which was parked up in our village, it was a Avis Hire Car as it had the MG Rover url on the rear bumper.

I've seen one driving around Lichfield probably about a year ago now. It had large MG stickers on it advertising it as the new MG6 so was either a hire vehicle or a demo car I suspect.

I was lucky enough to go to the Top Gear Live show at the NEC a couple of weeks back and MG had a stand there in which they were showing off a BTCC variant if the MG6 GT which looked quite smart.

Likewise I too think a national advertising campaign would help a lot.

There's one in my Village, in that rather fetching shade of Copper. I've driven one, asked more questions about the product and left the Salesman baffled.

I've only seen a couple, one driving and one parked up enabling me to have a good nosey! I was quite impressed. They're a lot bigger than I thought . The diesel is due any time now and from what I've read the engine should be one of the best diesels on the market.

Not seen one on the road although I was given one earlier this year as courtesy car. Have to say it drove very well, handling, ride and performance were all good. However it looked quite cheap inside and hated the jacket the battery was in.

Apart from that and considering there's a dealer just down the road from me (which is where I had the car from) not seen one on the road.

Sad really; not sure what the answer is for them to sell more. Seems to be a one trick horse?

A car dealer came to our unit today who is waiting for delivery of his MG6 Diesel. He was very impressed by it apparently. This will be the first owner that I know with one.

Last April a red one with the MG Cars url on the rear bumper passed me on the M6 going north near Chorley.

Apparantly the diesels are very good. Hope they get the sales in now.
