MG MGF Technical - front box
|I know there is a "front box" for mgf (LHD only). Do you know part number?|
I own a mgtf, I think it can be assembled even in it. But I don't found it in "MG Approved Accessories" dealer give me some days ago.
Do you know how to buy this particular part? I need it to fit in it the CD changer. I cannot install CD changer without it (I fear water goes in it and damage it).
|I found part number:|
does anybody have this on sell?
No longer availiable *official* in DE, and it was DE supplies only.
I think the tooling got taken over by a german aftermarket supplier.
If you like to spend loads of cash, then try http://www.amt-mg.com/
(regards from Dieter if you order, though I've really nothing to do with Mr Anhalt) ;)
Anyway, installation is impossible without using a spare wheel in place.
PS. sometimes a box appears at ebay DE. The last I saw went for 170 EURO.
|have you a suggestion to me?|
If you know a better solution tell me about it.
|why not buy a bigger car?|
hehe.. piss off factor....
|why not make silent?|
|Why not make silence?|
why not be silent?
|Hi cnerone, |
I too like the boot box idea - in fact, I've taken measurements and photographs to research how to make a version for RHD cars. But at the end of the day, perhaps a box is not the best solution.
I suppose it depends on what it is you want to but in there? Perhaps a water proof squashable bag would be better?
|Many options... but if you have a look at the F's manual, it states that you may not store anything in the front, as it could change the impact/crumple zones.|
Of course this odd, as the box is an original Rover item.
|... and it contains a spare wheel, which is not all that deformable... ;o)|
Front boot should, however, be only used for squashy items for exactly the reasons Erik mentions. Don't store angle-iron in there!
|>Of course this odd, as the box is an original Rover item. |
Former MG Rover DE, which makes the difference.
I think they used the *grey line* regading EC regulations.... *add on supplies* is different approval to *installed and tested as delivered by factory*
However A.M.T. or ebay, or second hand from the advert boards on my webside is the only option.
BTW. you need not look. Nothing in currently.
|I think front box is plastic made. So I think it doesn't modify impact effect. In addition I want you to remember there is possible to buy mgTF without spare wheel (with IMS option). I think the existence or not of this particular can make difference in impact cases.|
