MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - Build details

I have a ZS 180 2.5L on a 06 plate how do I find out its build postion, what would the start and finish numbers be.

Production officially ended in April 2005, although some cars were left part finished on the line, possibly being finished sometime later by Nanjing. So a 2006 could be one of those, or one finished by MG/Rover but left languishing in a dealer. You would need to look at the chassis plate to get a better idea of when it was actually built. Someone has claimed between 150 and 300 Mk2 (2004) hatches (mine's a saloon). The last known 180 is said to be SARRTVWND5D656509, but like the mgb roadster and GT all the ZS models were from a common range of numbers. Commission numbers started from 251 (as with many Abingdon models, 251 being the old factory telephone number). has a number of submissions from owners as to their plate and number which might give you a clue, 26582 on a 55 plate being the highest listed, bearing in mind the variable time between production date and registration date.
