2001 MG MGF Trophy (Trophy Blue)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Free flow chrome air filter.

Sump Baffle fitted to stop oil starvation when cornering hard or spinning.

Refurbished quite a lot under the bonnet. The plastic water deflector was leaking so water was pooling underneath. A lot of items were removed cleaned and repainted as were areas of the bay. The battery tray was also done.
Interior
Factory fully functional real roll hoops (not the pretty posing type!)

Made a plate and covered it with felt to fit a fire extinguisher in the passenger footwell.
Exterior
Bonnet Aero Catches, Just because I like the look of them.

Racing Air Dam to help with stability and cooling.

Rear Lexus style lights. Smoked side indicators. HID conversion of front lights which are great.

Chrome petrol filler cap.
Suspension
Complete rebuild of suspenstion with Poly Bushes. All wheel Bearings replaced.
Rebuilt all break calipers. EBC Vented sports brake discs front and rear. 'Yellow Stuff' Brake Pads.
Replaced all subframe mounts . . . etc etc etc!
Wheel and Tire
