Default Re: Mg (usa)

Wonder if they will be using Lucas electrics? If so don't forget to get a can of replacement 'Smoke' as plenty will 'Leak' from the wiring harness

Headlight Switch Positions:

non Lucas: Hi beam / Lo beam / Off
Lucas: Dim / Flicker / Off

One of my X's had the MGF pain in the arse to get the roof down literally had to jump up and down on it, a crappy plastic back window too.

Another thing wasn't it front wheel drive, all true sports cars are rear wheel drive nothing like getting a slide on the back end.

I'd like to them bring the pocket rocket out here the Lotus Elise or Exige, like to see the cop right the speeding report on that one well it was yellow.

They sell Lotus in the US (http://www.lotuscars.com/) but they are dam expensive , nice cars but not for tall people

I thought the MGF was terrible, slow, horrid pedals (like chocolate bourbons), build quality was awful, reliabilty was terrible, infact the only thing I think MG had going for thier cars were that they started using honda engines Certainly wouldn't dub it a sports car - more of a hairdressers car

Mid engine, rear wheel drive.

Did 130, well it did in Belgium.

I do not like plastic windows either.

There are many many much much worse.
