MG MGF Technical - A silly question?
|having experienced the milky headlight problem and looking at replacement under an extended warranty. Do the mgtf head lights fit or am I best to use the trophy cluster.|
thanks for any advice
|I have heard that the TF lights will fit with one major problem you will need a TF bumper to go with them.|
I to have the milky headlights and would love the TF lights but am not keen to change to a TF bumper. If I wanted a TF I would buy one.
What we need is a after market kit with a redesigned front bumper to allow the fitment of these lights and still keep the F's front looks. The other option is a redesign of the light units so no new bumper required.
|Cue Mike Satur!|
|Right there Ted, personally I dislike the TF headlamp unit shape. Along with most of the other styling mods as it happens...|
Just want the quality of illumination in the F headlamp unit.
|I have to admit that my personal preference is for the original *F* style - I find it a pleasing shape , dare I say Cuddly even! Whilst I do not dislike the TF it looks just a little too aggresive BUT I guess this what they want to portray, this is the modern market!|
|Don't want to divert too much from the original thread.|
However, IMHO, when the 'F is correctly lowered and with the headlamp's silvered background painted it can look well aggressive. To me the Trophy was the best interpretation; and you need to lower that!
Again, IMHO, the 'F is a roundy car. Sticking angular bits on just makes it look awkward, a real fashion victim.
Just my opinion.
I have done the Trophy headlamp conversion to my silver MGF, and I think it looks excellent! I think this is your best bet, as it's half way between the original MGF look and the new agressive TF look.
E-mail me if you'd like a picture.
