Seems the way of a lot of "Brands" these days!
Don't quite seem to have got it with RIBs...yet!
A friend in the Motortrade has just taken on the new "MG" franchise from...You guessed it...and I must say on first inspection they look extremely well put together,and high spec for the money!..
They certainly have high aspirations,and more importantly the huge investment to go with it!
Time will tell,although with a burgeoning and truly massive middle class home consumer base Driveing things forward.... they almost don't need the export Market these days!
I'm sure if RIBs were or do become a focus,they may well surprise us in the future!
