    Yes, they do, but at the moment I fancy drinking a cold beer on my 26c sunny patio instead. I look at that later for you !!!!

    Welcome, Michael.

    Two-sixty ownership is an unique experience, with lots of rewards, and you're in good hands with the two-sixties website.

    I make #600 the 141st of 179 X-Power Grey ZT & ZT-T's combined, and the 574th of the total 717 ZT's and ZT-T's (LHD & RHD) produced. Around 75-80% through the production run on both counts (total and colour).

    Just tells you CAPTCHA V1 IS SHUTDOWN. ... nice to know! Glad it's not our site.
    Must admit though, when it does work, their maths is often a bit odd. Once checked a VIN to be told that was there were -1 other cars also born on that day.

    Agreed, the data on MG-Rover.info is very suspect.

    Factory data was given out to a limited number of parties (with a number of strict caveats, this is a can of worms so i won't go into the details here), but suffice it to say that a lot of the online data sites are using very old data that is riddled with errors - they simply present the Factory data as is and sadly, although a brilliant starting point, the data needed a LOT of work to get anything even close to accurate.

    An example of this is the MGF Abingdon limited edition. Due to a data recording error, the factory information lists some 20000+ cars, when they only made 1600 - basically any F that had the factory leather seats option was recorded erroneously as an Abingdon LE. This has lead to regular postings on social media along the lines of "i have a Flame Red Abingdon, i thought they were only made in Brooklands Green?"

    There are a few people that have spent a lot of time trying to sort this out, if you know where to go you can get pretty accurate data on MGF & TFs these days thanks to the tireless work of the MGCC and a few individuals. Thankfully the data set for the V8 cars is also pretty damned good - and the Two-Sixties group has the best data set. Having been the Registrar for the MGCC in the past and having seen the F, ZS & V8 data sets, i can tell you that the V8 one is in my opinion, the most comprehensive & the most accurate of them all, mainly due to the smaller numbers of cars built.
