As per the title, the sad time has come to part with my beloved MG. I’ve enjoyed every moment of ownership, well, practically every moment 😆 but now it’s time for her to hopefully find a loving new home. I guess you could say that I’ve turned to the dark side in buying a new car - Audi 3.2 Quattro roadster mk2 - and I can’t keep two cars unfortunately.

Ive had the MG since 2014 roughly. She has had no expense spared on her, lots of things to list below. I’m kinda hoping that a fellow member may be interested before selling elsewhere so here goes.

The basics.

She is a 2001 MY2000 mk2 1.6 in Stunning Tahiti Blue. She is currently sorn’d since Oct 21 but garaged. She has MOT till Oct 22 and last MOT passed with zero advisories. She’s covered only 77k (avg. 3500m per year) and has several owners including myself.

She comes with a factory hard top which is also Tahiti Blue, updated alloys which are in mint condition and are wearing Toyo Proxes all around which are practically as new with little wear.

Interior is in immaculate condition with only some slight wear to the drivers bolster.

2 keys and key fobs. Original owners manual and folio.

Always been maintained and serviced religiously since ownership with no expense spared.

The good stuff - things that have been done etc

Firstly, N series head gasket and strengthened oil rail fitted not long ago by Dave & Kayleigh @ MGRMM along with the usual cambelts etc done along with an uprated aluminium intake manifold fitted November 2019 @ 73,000m - only covered about 4,000m since. This was done as the gasket was starting to show signs but had not failed hence oilways etc were not covered in mayo, I simply did this as a preventative measure before things got worse.

Full stainless steel underfloor coolant pipes, stainless steel coolant rail, numerous hoses replaced, new coolant tank.

Upgraded MTEC drilled and grooved discs with mintex pads all around with little wear. Discs were coated so are pristine.

Exhaust is full stainless steel TT mk7 silencer with Toyosports down pipe and flex section all in mint condition.

52mm throttle body with green cotton performance air filter fitted and trophy air filter box fitted with one hose redirected to passenger side intake.

Ive upgraded the manual mirrors to heated electric colour coded ones, colour coded air intake side vents, colour coded door handles and also fitted a trophy spoiler which was also professionally resprayed in Tahiti Blue.

New centre console trim and dash clock trim fitted.

Mike Satur chrome roll hoops with glass windbreak fitted.

Original MG business class Blaupunkt stereo fitted with MG logo.

OEM front suspension arms (pair) fitted Nov 2020.

New OEM alternator fitted Nov 2020.

New clutch fitted in May 2016 @ around 60,000 miles so loads of life in it.

New gear change cables and updated Mike Satur bell crank fitted.

New Magnecor competition red HT leads, OEM coil packs and Denso Iridium TT plugs.

There is probably a lot more that I’ve forgotten about but I’ve receipts galore to evidence.

I will put a new 12mth MOT on her for anyone who wants to buy, there’s nothing for her to fail on so why not!

The bad bits.

Well, there aren’t any really. There is some slight rusting on the wings, mainly the drivers side. A bit on the sills - the usual areas on these but pretty damn good for a 22yr old car! - the car has been machine polished by myself to keep it in showroom condition, there may be one or two minor blemishes but you’d have to look hard to spot them.
