• Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I like our British motoring history and it was very sad when Rover folded up in 2005. So hopefully the car says I am a traditionalist and a bit of an eccentric (both of which are true)

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They like it.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes I would, it is a great fun car and the parts are readily available and don’t seem to be very expensive.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    We would get a newer one, the MGF TF in the future.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    It is just great to drive. The engine is fantastic over 3,000 rpm. It just flies.

    What's it like to park?

    Very easy. It is so small it fits in anywhere. Still seem to suffer with people opening their doors on it despite taking up only a small space.
