MG MGF Technical - Hong Kong Bound F
|Before anyone questions my sanity, it has already been covered on this BBS and It has been decided that I am infact insane. But in my defence, if I decide to sell it over here I can expect 7500 quid. Not bad for an early mk2 I hear you say.|
Still anyone that has visited the dark side will know where I'm coming from in my love for this Longbridge lump. And I totally refuse to almost give away my F at current values in the UK.
I wanted to thank everyone who helped me on the Idle speed thread, as it helped me process some paperwork much more quickly. It now looks like my F will sail towards the far east in July.
Everything is looking up!
|I think you're going to love it Paddy! When I've visited Maccau and Hong Kong, I've always wished I had my F with me!|
BTW do you have aircon on your car?
|Have a nice travel to both of you. I would definetely have kept my F.|
|and above all it will be nearer it's new marque owners!!|
|>> and above all it will be nearer it's new marque owners!! <<|
LOL - true - and that should make getting hold of cheap parts rather easier!
|Speaking of which. Is longbridge any closer to being of any use to Nanjing?|
Will the TF ever get built again?
Rob-Funny you should ask about a/c. I did consider asking MGF Centre to do it, but I just cant justify it. I plan to sell my hardtop and just keep the roof down for 10 months a year rather than just 5 in UK
|Yigit- Thanks for the kind sentiment. I would have bought one out here but I cant get my legs under the steering wheel of the mk1 (stopped selling them in 97/98). And I pained over finding the right F back in 2002 in the UK.|
|TF is said to be re-entering production from March 2007 - I guess we'll all have to wait and see...|
|This is funney rearly as my F and my maets F came from there in 97.|
|I understand there are about 70 f's in HK. They sell for between 3500 and 6000 pounds. All mk1s. So I doubt there is much call for exporting them to the UK these days.|
