MG MGF Technical - Northampton Servicing?

any decent garages around Northants to whom I can trust my car to?
I really wouldn't want just any one servicing it.

Can thoroughly recommend Little Houghton Garage, just outside Northampton city.Stuart Pettit is the owner/enthusiast...although perhaps more involved with older models (B's and midgets etc).Worth a call to 01604 890317 anyway,IMO
Official MGR dealer in Northampton is Bament - where I got my TF from.Haven't yet used their service dept, so can't comment,but sales were "OK",and interested in MG's. They also support the Northampton branch of the MGOC, and offer 10% (I think) discount on labour costs to members.

I use townends in Rushden for my TF, no probs so far and they are pretty good at explaining what work has been/needs to be done...

Thanks guys.
Its nice to know there are at least some Garages out there who dont just wanna rip ya off.
Or am I just being cynical!
In the five year service does it recomend changing the air filter?

M Parry

Not sure about the Air Filter, But I do know that on the 5 Year/60000 Mile service they change the Cam Belt so that service usually costs in the region on 350-400.


R Goodman

Air Filter is every 2 years ( 2,4,6 ...) but 5yr/60000 does replace Fuel Filter and Spark Plugs
