    Paint protection

    Actually the vast majority of cars leave the factory with perfect paint. They then usually get very dirty during transit, waiting in all weathers on filthy docksides, compounds, ships and transporters. The dealers then wash them after arrival during pdi. This is where all the damage is done. The...

    Driver Side Grab Handle

    They are definitely not there on mine, there isn't even any steel framework in the vicinity where it needs to be to mount when compared to the left hand side. How did you establish your car has the mountings?

    Bigger wheels, wider tyres, boy racer 4 life 😂

    Just a thought, as you're using VAG wheels, you did change the wheel bolts to radiused type I trust? I know of some who overlooked this! The MG bolts are a flat taper

    Bigger wheels, wider tyres, boy racer 4 life 😂

    The reader takes the code from the original sensor by WiFi in situ, so you don't need to mess with tyres on the original wheels at all. Sensors are Autel MX universal sensors and the programming pad is an Autel Maxi TPMS pad. These are readily available from ebay or amazon.

    Bigger wheels, wider tyres, boy racer 4 life 😂

    I bought a universal programmable set with programming pad. You simply copy and paste the original sensors code to the new one on each wheel and it just works. You could swap the originals over instead if you wanted to, but it gave me the option of using either set of wheels. Or you can buy the...

    Bigger wheels, wider tyres, boy racer 4 life 😂

    As another driver running 18" wheels and wider tyres, I can advise there is no discernable difference to range or acceleration at all.

    Bigger wheels, wider tyres, boy racer 4 life 😂

    I've changed my wheels and tyres, but should I have any warranty issues with steering or suspension components, I'll be putting the originals back on before approaching an MG dealer! As any none supplied wheel and tyre combination will be of a different weight to the original, and in my case...

    Have you got any rust on your MG ZS EV?

    Well done on the clean, it looks splendid. As for the rust, if you do have any you won't see it from the top or on any painted surfaces (odd rare unfortunate case aside) it lurks underneath at the edges of the underbody structure on the parts that are only finished in thin primer dip!

    Driver Side Grab Handle

    I haven't used one, but it very much looks like something that could do a lot of damage, especially with careless use.

    Driver Side Grab Handle

    Wow, that device looks like a great way to mangle your door catch, or dent and scratch the bodywork surrounding it!

    Updated ZS 2022.

    Let's just hope it looks nothing like the Toyota Corolla they've used for the rendering!

    Updated ZS 2022.

    Tesla are so far ahead, I'd doubt anyone will get close within a decade. As for the UK market, we are peanuts to both Tesla and SAIC. Third class in the pecking order... Especially post brexit.

    Updated ZS 2022.

    By the time we get the lower priced Tesla, it'll be £25k, but your point is valid.

    MG Owners > 1 year .. Battery Health

    I'm on 12k, battery seems the same as ever, range just as good as new. Oddly, I have noticed the last couple of charges, my voltage is showing as 448v rather than 449v, but balancing wasn't complete before I used the car again. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

    Do MG EVs normally rattle and creak? Is this the view of your dealer?

    Don't blame MG, its some (most?) of the franchised dealers that are the issue, and it's unfortunately endemic across most marques. My family have had appalling service from Suzuki, Honda, Peugeot, Mitsubishi, Audi & VW dealers over the last few years! Ranging from inability to correct...

    Do MG EVs normally rattle and creak? Is this the view of your dealer?

    I wish you good luck with that. Just don't set your expectations too high, just in case... ;)

    Do MG EVs normally rattle and creak? Is this the view of your dealer?

    Yes, but you'll need to buy a 2 metre length, of course. ;)

    Do MG EVs normally rattle and creak? Is this the view of your dealer?

    Hi, can't seem to link to the ebay listing, but if you search for 10mm wide closed cell tape, 3mm thick, 2m long, you should find it. Cost is £4. When installed the 3mm foam compresses to about 1mm under the original seal, so its not noticeable, but it stops the original seal chafing on the...

    Do MG EVs normally rattle and creak? Is this the view of your dealer?

    A lot of them rattle from the front A pillar covers. The scuttle panel seal also creaks against the glass along the bottom of the windscreen. The steering wheel clicks as it turns. Mine had all of these. I personally rectified them with self adhesive felt for the a pillars, a closed cell foam...

    Driver Side Grab Handle

    I was surprised too. I thought worse case, captive nuts would be missing from behind the mount holes but there's an additional pressing welded in to support the passenger side handle that is missing on the drivers side, so they are using a different roof structure for LHD & RHD cars!
