Another MG Metro Buyer's Guide
"The MG Metro is a fast appreciating and endangered national treasure. Here’s what you need to know before buying one.
Once a regular in the best seller charts, the Metro is one of those everyday cars which has suddenly dropped off the radar and even the extensively redesigned Rover Metro is now a rare sight in everyday use.
All of which means that the humble Metro has now regained a great deal of appeal if not as a better-driving alternative to the Mini but for its curiosity value alone. Its origins in the Mini have been both its salvation and its downfall as a classic – back in the day, an MoT-failed Metro was usually descended on within minutes by Mini owners and stripped of its running gear, but today it does at least mean that the legions of Mini parts suppliers can cater for the A-Series powertrain. As you’ll see, the rest of isn’t quite so easy."
