Well yesterday I bought a new car as the jag was using around 80 a week on fuel to go to work and with fuel prices rising it was the best thing. I choose a 02 mg tf 160bhp version vvc in blue

Spec
0-60 6.9 sec and 140 top end and a good 49mpg motorway driving, will get some pics soon. Am only planning on doing a few mods eg a quick shift gear kit, carbon bonnet and I will purchase a hard top for the following winter.

the brakes are of a ap racing type and are only avvailable on the 160 version, I could have choosen the lower spec models like the 135 bhp version which is around 8 sec to 60mph and my insurance would have been 500 cheaper but I have never owned a car that has done 0-60 in under 8 secs so I just had to have it lol. For some strange reson though the 160 version is more economical than the 135 by about 2mpg and only 1mpg less than the 1.6 115 version.

yes I fit in it okay, I tryed the new shape mr2 and did like it but I had to have the seat right back to get in, it had no boot and at 9k for a 02 with 60k mile on it I decided this was far more for the money with just 25 miles showing.
