I totally see where you are coming from here, it’s a great plan but I am just wondering what MG’s responce will be to your request ?.That's why I've still got my first 1000 place deposit in, but I'll probably not go for the car until next year...I can wait and see what real life use and problems are.
If a car turn’s up before the end of 2019 in the colour and model of your chose, they may expect you follow it through with the order.
I guess they may allow you to defer / back slide your order into 2020 ?????.
Or given the list of people still waiting for their cars, they may expect you to complete the order of your original order or offer to give your allocation away to an awaiting customer.
Telling you, to make a completely fresh reorder all over again, thus missing out on any special deals on the original slot !.
Just saying !!!!!!.
Keep an eye on the curved ball if I was you.
