I wouldnt if I were you, being an mg will most likely make it expensive to insure but thats up to you. And the reason they are cheap is partly down to their build quality and dealer network. When was the last time you saw a rover/mg dealer?. A long time as they dont exist anymore, This could potentially make replacement parts difficult. Although motor factor companys seem to be supplying most parts im sure your going to come across something you cant get soon.
