2005 MG FReview
Good Car, But I Prefer Mgfs — The handling on the TFs is not as good as the hydragas system used on the Fs. However, this being an 05MY car, it has the improved set up that is better than earlier TFs. The other advantage of 05MY cars is that they have a glass rear screen as standard, so no problem with a plastic screen cracking in the cold. The Monogram paint is stunning to look at, however it is very expensive to repair. Trying to preserve the paint in tact took out some of the fun factor of driving the car to its limit - luckily I also owned an ex-race MGF to satisfy my lust for speed.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: TFs are good cars, but I prefer the handling of the MGFs
Cons: Cost of repairing the paintwork
