MG dealer to open

Time 5:41 pm, March 12, 2012

BEECHWOOD MG will become the third new MG dealership to open in 2012 as more motor traders are attracted to the brand.

It will officially open when a VIP charity casino night is held at the Siddals Road showroom on March 29.

Beechwood’s managing director and former amateur rally co-driver, Rob Wood, said: ‘I’m hugely excited to be representing MG. The brand has a great background in motor sport and it’s fantastic to see MG going back into track racing with the BTCC.

‘I have been very impressed with the MG6. You can feel the sporting pedigree in the way the car drives. It’s got great driving dynamics while being totally civilised on motorway driving and it offers amazing value for money. I think it’s a winner.’

Beechwood was founded by Wood’s father Mike Wood more than 40 years ago. The dealership has built up a strong reputation and the showroom, on a one acre site in Siddals Road.

The new dealership will launch with the MG6 GT fastback and MG6 Magnette sports saloons on show supported by factory trained technicians and the latest MG GDS diagnostic equipment.

Beechwood MG has a staff of 15 headed by Wood. He added: ‘Everyone here is really enthusiastic about being part of the new MG story. We’re really proud to be representing MG.’
