Hi everyone, I am a newby MGF owner from Austria. I was struck by trouble within the very first 20 miles in my MGF 75 , and got a lot of useful advice in this forum already.
Hence it is time to introduce my bitchy little beauty.
A 1999 MGF 75, a bit "frankensteined" with a TF front, a Trophy(?) rear wing and 16" rims by its previous owner after some front accident damage in its early life.
It needs a little TLC here and there but generally in good nick with only 110k km on th clock.

Looks nice, but as well as the front bumper and lights being TF your also missing the anniversary badges from the front wings (under the repeaters). There are a few 75ths with Trophy rear spoilers so that isn't really out of place :)

Yes I know the badges are missing - I'll chase them once I've done the other bits that need doing - like replacing the rear screen.

All done and dusted! Thanks to the help I got here I have now also changed the rock hard spheres for refurbished ones and fixed some bodge jobs of a previous owner/mechanic - like a torn knuckle rubber grommet "repaired" with electric tape, also the washer and spring were missing on this particular assembly 🤬
Some people just shouldn't be allowed to tinker.

Anyway, the MG is nicely suspended and level again, with the 30mm lowering kit sitting just right.
Besides the coolant leaks l also fixed the loose gear lever gaiter and other interior issues. Just a few little jobs to do now, like the generator, whos light comes on intermittendly, the rattling exhaust heat shield and yesterday the ABS light came on after I washed the car ...getting there.

May I ask if you think the car is fun to drive with the 115 engine, as thats the one I've chosen to buy, are they still nippy enough on the road Pturino?
Hi Richardhb,
the power of the 1.6 115 bhp is not much and I don't know the more powerful versions. I only bought it in the spring and due to some work to be done I couldn't use it much this summer but I find it very snappy and fun and with a good set up. It's a lot of fun and, thanks to its low weight, it gets up to about 190 km/h. The acceleration isn't F1 but it's still fun!

Thanks buddy, put my mind at ease a bit. How old is your car?
