Car was as advertised, ran flawlessly. Great check in procedure. New Zealand doesn't have a straight road. Shifting with the TripTronic paddles was a blast. If you're new to New Zealand, give yourself extra time in your plans.

Sorry to hear that you weren't able to enjoy the 1972 MG as you'd hoped. With our older 1970s classics lacking power steering they can be a more involved challenge on some roads. I'd recommend our 1993 Alfa Spider Series 4 as an ideal balance...More
