Its a 1995 MGF 1.8i with 45,000 k's on it.

I cant believe this is the first post in this forum, just beacause these arnt sold in America shouldnt mean they arnt talked about, this is an international site.

Cheers :D I like :)

Although I gotta ask, how is the cars reliability??? Being an early one it must be plagued with problems of some sort.....:confused:

Theyve done about 6000k in it now with no trouble.

Its not a VVC one so that makes it easier, they have somthing with them which is best to fix motor wise.

Ive heard all of the stories about them blowing head gaskets but we know of several through the MG car club and havnt heard of any problems.

Its got 205 tyres on the back which have amazing grip, when you boot it it seems to sit down and still leaps forward. In the wet youve got to be very careful, its got alot of torque down low and being mid engined unless your careful it trys to swap ends on you. Other than that we havnt had any trouble.

All that and even around town its getting 40mg and almost 50 on a trip

I see loads of these. Dont get me wrong, they are good cars, they are just boring compared to others, like lotus Elise.

Yeah im not denying the elise is a better car, id love to have one but at least over here

cheap decent condition MGF = 20,000 NZ$
cheap decent condition elise = 50,000 NZ$

Theyre not that much better

Hello- We lould love to get the MGF over here in the US. My understanding is that BMW refuses to allow the importation of the MGF b/c they are afraid that it would impact first their Z3 and now Z4 market.
