Go on then David.....

Ask the seller a question along the lines of..... "The MGTF 160 is called a '160' for a reason, so what has be done to make yours a MGTF 200?"
"200 BHP chip,"

As it says on the advert.

So what chip gives an extra 40 BHP? And where do I get one? ;)

I've asked the seller to explain it in very simple terms because I don't know much about cars?? (Well I don't!!) And just seen my post count and had to post another 1 just to move of 666.

No..... you're getting it all wrong!

The car is a 160, it just comes with a chip that has 200BHP...... its in the glovebox....... came from one of those 'special' ebay auctions.... :happy:

I am of course talking complete tosh... and I will be interested to know what the chip does..... and if he has had it measured at 200bhp... sounds like a very round number to me to be true!

I've just posted this to the seller:
Hi, could you ask the nice lady owner what exactly has been done to this car to push it to 200 BHP?
It must be extensive as it requires a fair but of tuning to get the VVC engine to 200 BHP without problems.
Has it had any uprated internals to cope with the extra power?

Thanks.

I saw a lot of cars out there when I was looking recently that were being "sold on behalf of a friend". Is this just a way for a trader to get out of having to offer 3 months warranty and the usual rights?

I think its more to avoid having to answer any questions on it.

Its not impossible though, I've sold cars on behalf of my dad before as he's a technophobe
