Well then i don't see the relevance of your comment, why would i waste my time sending pictures of the service history if you have no intention entering? I often find the service history int worth the paper its written on.

 

I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to own an MGF. Or any other Rover Group product.

Having driven both, the F drives soooo much nicer than the TF. I think after you have one you will be in love!

Mainly just age. F was '90s, TF early '00s (very roughly). I think they're both quite nice.

They ran out of Hydrogas from the North Sea reserves so later cars are on old fashioned coil springs.

How does that change them?
I assume that metro suspension is more comfy and coils are hard and uncomfortable??

So...I thought id Roffle off my MG F,  If 59 people want it for £13.50 a ticket then ill let fate decide. If not ill just left the wife shout at me some more. I could probably deliver it to the winner because its fully legal.... Located in Nottingham

Basically that, the F is much softer and handles brilliantly the TF not so soft but still handles ok. They made changes to the suspension too the F has a quicker rack than the TF making it turn faster. Ive had both and the F is b y far my favorite. Sadly over time the gas escapes and the suspension drops. Most people just pump it back up with fluid but this is the wrong thing to do. I had the units regased with nitrogen and it rides like its on a magic carpet again. Oddly they changed the suspension design due to cost of making the hydro units,...not sure where the north sea comes into it they are filled with nitrogen.

As per the last one, I don't fit in them, I can't use less than two of the pedals at a time, I can't put the roof up if I do manage to squeeze in, and they kick my AS into overdrive.

One random, please.
