Eclairage de l’allume cigare pour MGF/TF

Si vous voulez installer l’éclairage de votre allume cigare alors, c’est très simple a faire…

Article par David (Oise)
Hello a tous,

Si vous voulez installer l’éclairage de votre allume cigare alors, c’est très simple a faire:

-démonter le cendrier+support

-déboîter et relevez légèrement la console centrale au niveau du soufflet de la boite de vitesse

-prendre un fil d’env. 40cm (si mes souvenirs sont bons!a voir sur place…)

-d’un coté du fil, denudé et mettre une cosse femelle

-raccorder la cosse femelle a la cosse male de l’éclairage de l’allume cigare, passer le fil sous la console(attention a bien le mettre a coté de la boite et non dessus, sinon..)et le raccorder sur la fiche du bouton de l antibrouillard(sur le fil rouge et noir)

-remonter le tout et allumer vos feux!!

Cela ne donnera pas plus de valeur ni de puissance a la voiture mais, au moins, un petit « plus »(qui ne devrait pas l’être!) que les MGF(peut être TF aussi)d’origine n’ont pas.

Si vous rencontrez le moindre problème pour l’installation de l’éclairage de l’allume cigare, n’hésitez pas a m’envoyer un mail je vous répondrais le plus vite possible !

Amicalement

RELEASE IMMEDIATE January 27, 2004

MG’s LATEST ZT RANGE DELIVERS A MODERN PRESENCE AND SPORTS CHARACTER

MG Rover Group announces a revised and more stylish new MG ZT range, for dedicated sports enthusiasts. The range encompasses a choice of modern saloon and estate cars, with in-line 4-cylinder, V6 and V8 engines. New alloy wheel designs, instrumentation, seat fabrics and traffic management systems combine to increase specification, excitement and value of the latest ZT range.

Key visual changes focus naturally on the modernised MG character. The aerodynamic front bumper integrates a new MG radiator grille and new halogen projector headlamps generate a prominent identity. A clean surfaced new rear bumper extends the modern theme, with centrally placed model badging above.

Sales of the MG ZT saloon and ZT-T estate were up 28% in 2003, over 2002.

Rob Oldaker , MG Rover Group’s Product Development Director, commented: œThe MG ZT is an accomplished driving experience range-wide, be it the ZT 120, with its lightweight K Series engine to the 260 V8 with its wonderful soundtrack and awesome 410Nm of torque. The experience is always a thrill. Enthusiasts and determined business individuals will each be inspired by the charismatic dynamics that are available and the new sleeker design that provides a poise of real sporting definition. 

Exterior design summary

The new ZT design captures a fresh spirit of style, perpetuating a lineage that can be traced from legendary MGs to the latest MG XPower SV super coupe. The stylish, integrated and more prominent MG grille is clearly DNA linked and set between standard fit, new halogen projector headlamps.

PRESSE :

MORE STYLE, SUBSTANCE AND VALUE FOR NEW ROVER 75 RANGE

MG Rover Group launches a new design style for its highly-regarded Rover 75 Saloon and Tourer models. The design embraces a sharper-edged front and rear exterior appearance, a larger integrated radiator grille, halogen projector headlamps and three distinct trim identities.

The new design style features three distinct trim identities, comprising Classic, Connoisseur and Contemporary, with SE derivatives and additional option packs that offer carefully tailored specifications across all points in the range. The established appeal of the Rover 75 range – with its unrivalled reputation as the definitive luxury premium Upper Medium saloon is further enhanced by the addition of the « Contemporary » derivative theme, providing a younger, more modern interpretation of traditional Rover values. Other features include a selection of new alloy wheel designs and options like Personal Assist – Smartnav? voice navigation and concierge service.

Rod Ramsay, Sales Operations Director, MG Rover Group, says: « These new models build on the established lineage of Rover design and will appeal to a greater cross-section of potential buyers. They offer a choice of distinct interior and exterior design themes to cater for individual taste and preference. »

Interior summary

Rover 75 Saloon and Tourer already possess one of the most admired interiors in the motoring world. With the introduction of the Classic, Connoisseur and Contemporary variants this interior is now available in three distinctive identities. In particular, Contemporary models offer an entirely new and progressive interior based around a new black oak wood finish. This provides a distinctive, younger and more continental flavour to the cabin. Full leather seat trim is standard on SE derivatives of both Connoisseur and Contemporary models.

Rear passenger entry, egress and accommodation has been improved with better foot and knee clearance from re-profiled seat cushions and squabs.

Three interiors with individual taste and choice

Classic

The 75’s Classic interior is a comfortable driving environment, creating an air of luxury with traditional Burr Walnut, set in the Ash and Light Smokestone duo-tone fascia. The famously comfortable Rover 75 seats feature upgraded Axis cloth trim, while door casings are now trimmed in high quality Tuscany fabric. Air conditioning is now standard on Classic derivatives, which also offer a CD tuner and leather steering wheel with integral volume controls.

Connoisseur

The Connoisseur trim specification brings a new light, refreshing tone to the Rover 75 fascia with a Light Oak theme. The new Light Oak finish creates a distinguished ambience reminiscent of traditional English oak panelling, an atmosphere which is further enhanced by distinctive seat piping and a choice of Sandstone Beige or Ash combined with light Smokestone interior colourways.

Standard features include fully automatic climate control, and electric front and rear windows.

The Connoisseur SE features a wood and leather steering wheel, wood manual gear knob, piped leather and heated electric seats with the added convenience of memory driver’s setting and reverse parking sensors. To help ensure the interior remains a place of pride, convenient tailored carpet mats are standard.

Contemporary

Taking a fresh direction in Rover 75 styling is the Contemporary variant, where a Black Oak theme sits perfectly with the purposeful environment of Black cloth trimmed sports-style seats and Ash interior. Fully automatic climate control, front fog lamps, a CD tuner and 16″ multi-spoke alloy wheels complete the high specification.

The highly specified Contemporary SE raises the standard equipment to even more impressive levels with attractive 17″ Starspoke alloy wheels, black leather electric seats (with driver’s memory control), windscreen rain sensor, trip computer, parking sensors and a premium Harman/Kardon hi-fi speaker system with amplifier. The innovative TrafficMaster Traffic Alert System provides real time traffic congestion warnings across the UK’s busiest routes. Carefully designed option packs with selected convenience features are available on both the Contemporary and SE derivatives to enhance ownership pleasure.

Security

For security and peace of mind, superlocking disables door and tailgate lock releases and sophisticated electronic networks stand ready to trigger the alarm. Highly convenient ˜plip’ operated remote unlocking of the boot or tailgate is now available on all derivatives, while a robust engine immobiliser and remote control with a continuously changing security code complete the anti-theft defences.
