Sexy, Quick, Amazing, Looks good, Nippy

Drinks petrol like an alcoholic at a bar

I always wanted an MGF Roadster ever since I first saw one zooming down the motorway. Ok there are other cars I want to own in my life (namely a Aston Martin for one) but I am now the proud owner of a MGF Roadster 1.8i. Let me tell you a little more. As the picture shows above this is indeed a...

“My experience as a road hog”

published 11/08/2003

Quick, great road handling, beautiful

Im not Gay or a hairdresser

Dear Ciao members, please go lightly as this is my first ‘op. Being a relatively poor student I wanted to be able to have a fun, fast sexy sports car that no body else has. My previous car was a Fiat Bravo, which I was really pleased with, but I though it was time to move on. There were three...

My opinion on the MGF VVC is based purely on female fancy so apologies in advance to any 'techie buffs' out there. To set the scene; it was late on a rainy Saturday afternoon and after ploughing through the housework, dropping various kids off at various places and persuading the husband that it...

“My little MGF 1.8 VVC”

published 27/06/2002

Looks great, quick!

Can leak, back window can be 'cloudy'

Before my current car I owned a H reg Vauxhall Astra, this was a great little motor, she had central locking, electric windows, sunroof….flaky paint, rust and 150k on the clock!! The MOT’s every year had just increased as more work needed to be done, it worked out that it just...

Great for those country roads in summer

Tendency to freeze on the inside in winter

§ By way of an introduction § Since passing my test, I had always imagined that one day I would own a convertible sports car and had pictures of driving through country lanes with my hair blowing behind me and crowds of gorgeous men staring at me, wishing they could join me. Reality Check. I...

“Topless driving”

published 05/06/2003

Makes driving real fun

unless you can't get the hood down

I would like to have been able to say this car improved my pulling power - but women just dont want to go driving topless with me. So I'm going to have to revert to the real reasons I bought this car. It was the '95 model, in BRG, with only 15,000 on the clock for only £7k. Traded in a Treg 1.6...

“MGF 1.8 - REWRITE”

published 02/10/2001

Good looking, fast, good handling

Requires careful maintenance

This was my very first opinion on Ciao, and I thought that now I have had a touch more experience writing I would take a chance and re-write. So here goes… My husband convinced me to buy an MGF when I was looking for a new car in October 2000. Well he didn’t have to twist my arm that...

“Feel the roaaaaaaaaaaar”

published 05/12/2003

very nippy and looks great

not much boot space, rear window vision limited

Having written my lovely little Fiesta off recently, I was in the position of having to find some replacement wheels. Visits to local garages and dealers didn't fill me with hope as I found the prices to be over-inflated. Cue my brother - who suggested we go to the car auctions that he often...

I owned an N Reg (1996) 1.8i MGF, and unfortunately I was not very pleased with it at all. I only kept the car for 18 months, and although it was great in the summer on the very few and far between sunny days, it was a nightmare for the rest of the year. The handling of the car is awful...

“VaVa Voooom”

published 13/09/2000

Great Price for a great car.

A little noisy.

The MGF 1.8i VVC, everthing you could want from a car and a little bit more. What other car comes close to the exciting drive, stunning looks and great handling at this price. The Mazda MX5 does come closish, but it still lags a long way behind. The 1.8 VVC engine packs a real punch, it will do 0...

Dealer prices, plastic rear screen

I recently had the opportunity to drive an MGF VVC for a number of laps at Thruxton. The car is a tight fit, if you are over 6 feet tall, and the driving position is fairly high. The engine thrives on revs, but lacks an italianate snarl. Handling is fairly failsafe, and a lot like a hot hatch...

looks good and is rather nippy

Drinks petrol

This car is only my second car and was a rather big step up from what i previously had. My first car was a P reg Ford Escort 1.8 TDI and although it did not give me any major problems i just did not enjoy driving it as the power was just not enough for me. After looking for so long to find the...

Cheap and cheerfull roadster

Where do I start

Bought the car in May 02 for a bit of summer fun, had a Mustang Convertable when I was living in L.A and fancied the soft top MGF. First mistake. Bought the car (S Reg) with 43k miles, FSH and seemingly good condition from reputable dealer for about £10k. Second mistake. Settled the finance and...

Ahhh! The convertible sportscar. Where would all the non-professional racing drivers be if we didn't have access to such fun motorcars. With a mini-jet engine on the back and hardly any weight to talk about, this sleek, elegant and best of all British car is up there with the big boy boxsters and...
