Here you will find an archive of knowledge and information to keep your MG's on the road and in excellent condition. Most of the content you will find on here comes from Members as a result of their own experience so, bear in mind, its sound advice being given! The Club is a social community and this forum can be a great place to talk about other things than just your cars! You'll see a Social & News Bulletin section where all sorts can be discussed. The objective of this forum is to help you, no matter how small or insignificant the task or question is! The forum is free to read and make a contribution with your posts however, we have a set of rules which are set out below. These rules are set out to help ensure that the forum remains friendly and non-confrontational where, we expect people to respect the opinions and beliefs of others. 1. Please remain courteous and respectful to other users in the forum at all times. Obviously you may not agree with some views but, lets not let this descend into arguments or abuse publicly or any personal messages you may send. If you feel a post is offensive, then please report it rather than trying to deal with it yourself. 2. You will not use any obscene language within the forum. Bear in mind, that general public including children may read any posts within the forum. 3. Consider carefully your username and profile information when you sign up.

CLUB CLASSIFIEDS We want to ensure that the ability to buy, sell or offer items are as easy and convenient as possible to all members that who belong to the Club so, anyone can view Club Classfieds. However, due to the rising opportunists and profiteers, note that there are some important where you are required to comply with. 11.1 Use of the Club Classifieds are for Members that have registered themselves on this forum.

Then the use of OVNO or ONO is excepted, which is the acceptable method of selling cars. 11.3 For your own personal safety and security, we ask members not to include telephone numbers or email addresses. You can leave you name and Members can find details in the Club's Members Directory for direct contact. The exception being if the person listing is a non-member or trader. 11.4 The Club will not be liable for any actions from the buyer or seller of any items listed, and prefer not to be involved in any dispute resolution, all we ask that "common sense" be applied when offering an item for sale.
