You can certainly get a 45 saloon in 2.0 V6 flavour, struggle to find a hatch version though!
Mg rover stated 90k/6 years in the handbooks afaik ... Mine had a belt (apparently) at 45k ish and is now on 95562. Not sure if it means it's ready or not, if it snaps then mega doom ... If I get it done at a garage it's about Â£700 +/- a bit! Anyone would think that they are hard to change
Is this the case only for the 45? I've been looking into it for my 75 and there are companies quoting fixed price of around Â£450-500.
