Periklis Gogas from Greece: "Why wouldn't I love my MGTF? Look at this combination: My Tina, my MGTF and the sea. All the beauty in the world!"

David Hood: "I live in Canada and own three MGBs which I drive all through the Canadian winter. I have been waiting for MG Rover to export MGs to Canada again and I still hope that will happen. My next car? An MG of course!"

Marianne Ashcroft: "This is my Irish Rover. Isn't she a babe? In fact, that is what I call her - the Babe. I love Rover cars because they are stylish, comfortable, drivable, and elegant. It saddens me to think there will be no new Rovers built any more."

Daniel Saxton: "They are brilliant cars, I can't understand why their market share has fallen, unless it's down to the increasing focus on fashion and style. Perhaps if James Bond had driven a Rover it would have made them more fashionable."

Joe Maggiore, US: "I've been restoring MGs for years now and was very upset when I heard the latest news. I always hoped to buy a new MG on this side of the pond. I would gladly purchase an MG-TF if it were available here in the States."

Mark Green: "It's a real shame about MG Rover, not just for the workers but the buyers of the cars. They have such a loyal following."

Simon Priestley: "I love my MG Rover and all that it has stood for. I will be sad to see it go up in smoke along with the warranty on my brand new 10k car. Yet again someone's greed has sent a British company down the river."
MG ZT 190

Mike Palmer: "Here is my MG ZT 190 which has covered 87000 miles with no breakdowns. This has been a great car to drive. I now face a problem as when I sell there is nothing that comes close to the MG."
