2003 MG ZR

THE STORY SO FAR Miles driven 8 To­tal mileage 78,022 What’s gone wrong It’s still look­ing a lit­tle off-colour Our MG’s mor­phed from a finely honed hot hatch to a sort of four-wheeled Shrek, and has been do­ing its best to hide its now grotesque face from view for the past week. The good news is that the re­place­ment front bumper’s ar­rived bang on sched­ule – a snip at just £48, in­clud­ing free postage. Both have now been dis­patched to a nearby garage for some plas­tic surgery. We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing the re­sult. DS

2000 FORD PUMA

THE STORY SO FAR Miles driven 852 To­tal mileage 56,426 What’s gone wrong It’s now sen­tient and able to mend it­self While the MG and S-class are in for re­pairs, the Puma’s been han­dling all of­fice driv­ing du­ties – and it’s per­formed im­pec­ca­bly in the process. Not only has it been trans­port­ing man­ag­ing ed­i­tor James Sadlier up and down the coun­try to marathon runs, but it’s sur­vived sev­eral show out­ings and trips to see rather older clas­sics with­out miss­ing a beat. It’s even man­aged to mend its ropey door locks on its own! DS
