MG MGF Technical - Colour of soft top

Hi all,

fitted a new soft top to my F. It's a glass one, with MG XPower embossed on both sides.

It's a very bright blue. Been described as petrol blue. Anyone have an idea as to what it officially is? I'm trying to match the colour,

Its the sportster hood as sold by XC-Power. SOund like yours is in XTRA Blue as they called. Personally I think that colour look hideous, but what ever floats your boat :o)
Have a look here :-

Thanks Steve. That's just what I was after.

>Personally I think that colour look hideous<

You are not the first to go Yuk! Won't be the last either, I'm sure!

But at least I'll be able to find my car at an MGF event :)

There was an XPower grey TF with XTRA Blue Sportser hood on display last Silverstone. Someone must have a picture.

Told ya someone has got it online:


Ha ha! Have you had your paint brush out? ;-)
