    Sorry gentlemen it was meant as a wind up!!!!

    No offence taken, even after all these years, I worked there from 1984 to 2000 as a project Control Engineer and I still smart when in hindsight I remember the BMW years, I also would never own a BMW I even turned one down as a company car once to raised eyebrows from the employer.

  • Steve replied to the topic Stuck MGF bonnet in MGF/TF Pitstop
    I did the same as mowog as I noticed the bonnet release cable was get quite tight, on investigation it had rusted quit badly at the latch end and was beginning to fray, I replaced the cable and made an emergency cable from a good section of the old, I attached the emergency one beneath the loop of the new one and added a cable tie to hold them both in position a sort of belt and braces approach, the loose end of the emergency cable I tied down to the chassis rail again with cable ties, all I have to do then is reach under the front bumper while laying on the ground feel for the the cable and a sharp pull and the bonnet opens, well worth the effort in case of a cable break.

  • Steve replied to the topic Re:Hibernation in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Disconnecting the battery is the best option if you can't connect a battery conditioner, leave off the handbrake if you can and chock the wheels, run it up to temp every now and then and move it a few feet back and forwards to prevent the tyres deformation damp absorption pods are good inside.

  • They are bigger than you think, plenty of leg room although some say the seats are a little high, I'm 5'11 and have no problems.

  • Hello all, I am in the early stages of researching to buy an MG TF for my wife.  Price range up to £3,000 but prefer less.  I understand there were some additional safety and handling features introduced for the 2005 model year. which I believe was the last year of Rover production  How do I identify a model with these updates, worried may buy a 2004 model which was first registered in 2005.  Am I worrying too much about seeking a 2005 model, should I buy a 2003 model at half the price.  Many thanks for any help.  I also use a motorcycle and a motorhome forum so understand how irritating it is when a newbie asks a question then disappears so will my my best not to do that. 

    One thing to beware of with later model TF is the company was in decline and had adopted project drive, this meant that a lot of the body protection processes were deleted so rust is a major issue in the newer models, in fact the MK1 F can be less rusty underneath than most TF, of course you may find a garage queen that is in excellent condition but my advice is regardless of what the exterior looks like check thoroughly underneath before parting with any cash.
