XPart is offering prizes to the MG Rover owners with the most interesting stories to tell in an ongoing bid to keep the British manufacturer’s heritage alive.
MG Rover parts specialist XPart is inviting MG Rover owners around the country to enter a competition to decide whose car has the most interesting history. The company is offering three ultra-bright LED handlamps (each worth £60) to the top three entrants.
In addition to MG’s strong racing heritage, many of Britain’s much-loved MG and Rover cars have led a varied and colourful life over the years, travelling far afield to exotic locations and even being used on film sets and in TV series. Entries will be judged by a panel of MG Rover specialists and the winners will be announced in July 2010.
“We frequently hear all kinds of remarkable anecdotes from within the MG Rover community, and would like to welcome owners to write in describing why they think their MG Rover has the most interesting story to tell,” explains Barry Smith, UK Sales Manager, XPart.

“For instance, we recently heard that one enthusiast group had bought the oldest RHD Rover 75 in existence, which, alongside a busy life as a security car at Cowley and Longbridge, has also made screen appearances in ‘Midsomer Murders’ and ‘Ultimate Force’. In addition to the LED handlamp prizes, we’d like to announce the winners in a news story this summer as we continue in our drive to keep the MG Rover name alive and well.”
