    I hope it turns out to be a good one too. 
    They have to be able to supply parts for 10 years after production ends for a particular car. So parts should not really be an issue but only time will tell on that.

    My dealer has checked and the car only had 1 repair done under warranty from new and that was a replacement radio unit. So that's quite hopeful I think.
    The only issue I have found so far is the boot open button has to be held for quite a while to open the boot by the remote.
    Also, the lazy lock function does not seem to work which I expect it should.

    As I understand it by pressing either the lock or unlock for several second the windows should wind up or down.
    On my TS nothing happens and I find it hard to believe it would only be an option on the top range model.
    The dealer has opened a service now case with MG but I am certain the feature should work.
    Can anyone with a TS model or even the S model confirm if the feature works, please?

  • simcor replied to the topic SAT NAV SD CARD in Technical - MG6
    I updated mine via Naviextras no issue and cost £107 ish after conversion from Euro's. So it's now running the latest map, not the 2014 map it was on.

    It will likely have embedded storage I would imagine inside the headunit there is no SD card on the rear of the unit as I have already had it out to have a look at what there is on the back, I'd like to add the reversing camera to mine but need to figure out if it would need configuring on T5 or the new diagnostics that MG use which I imagine it would need to be done so. Again the folding mirrors I imagine would also need coding on the car if you added them another item I'd like to retrofit if I could.

    Part exed it a week or so ago.
    Bought a 6 on a 16 plate diesel TS, liking it so far much happier in a larger more powerful car finding the comfort a bonus as well.
    Probably will be my last MG though unless they make something I will want to buy, SUV's just don't do it for me.
    With 6's being quite rare decided to take the plunge as I wanted a 6 in the first place but opted for the 3 instead.
    If anyone is after a 3 that has been seriously sorted, having had a new clutch fitted, timing chain and new starter motor and completely rebuilt reconditioned gearbox then have a look at Nuneaton car sales where I part ex'd mine.

    I Have my spare wheel for sale from my 3.
    It's a black and diamond-cut style wheel. It has some corrosion on the face which was like that when I bought it and haven't tried to clean it up as it was purely for a spare wheel.
    Ideally, I am after a 6 TS style Facelift alloy wheel and would consider a straight swap if anyone has one lying around. Mine are the darker grey colour I guess anthracite would be the best description as they are quite dark in colour.


    Otherwise, I am looking for £85 for the wheel and tyre the cost to me roughly. Collection only S45 area or may be able to deliver within a reasonable distance unless you wish to arrange your own courier to collect the wheel. I would package it as well as I can if you wanted to do so.
    It had a brand new Jinyu Gallopro tyre fitted and has never been used only because it was a spare wheel, the car has always had OEM tyres on it.

    The sat nav is updated onto the headunit via a usb stick via the front USB port.
    You need to visit naviextras.com to purchase updates.
    I imagine any suitable sized USB stick will suffice but the headunit will format it and prepare it for the update files. So you would lose anything on it whilst doing it.
    The MG USB stick is an 8gb version and is formatted to FAT32.

    There is a Roewe 350 service manual which is basically the same 1.5 engine so may be of some use.

    Page 31 onwards for Engine related repairs.

    It's a timing chain on the 3 assuming you have a 3.
    There isn't a workshop manual available for the 3.
