Re: ABS warning light

Welcome to the forum Johnny :) Sorry to hear of the ABS problem. Changing ensors on our cars is a real challenge (as I am sure you have already found).

Re: 1999 MGf 1.8vvc Unable to start

First, welcome to the forum Colin! :D Second, sorry to hear that your local mechanics are being so unhelpful. :( This could be a number of things - and the risk at this stage is that you start replacing things without really getting to the route cause of the problem - which probably dates back to th...

Re: MGF Mod Plans and Prices

Believe it or not, folks have fitted L-series diesels in MGFs before (loads of different engine transplants tried, including Honda VTEC, Rover KV6, electric, gas turbine/electric hybrid... you name it...! :lol:)

Re: AP racing calipers

I like grooved discs because they help clear glazing off the pads - which I used to get a lot of on my MGF (which used to get driven a lot around the city).

Other than that, standard OEM discs are absolutely fine. :)

Re: EPAS warning on, pwr steering fail :(

Re: Wood trim?

The trim comes out easily - and would be much better to paint outside the car. In fact, might be worth getting a spare off the bay of fleas (or elsewhere) and prep/paint at your leisure! :D

Re: Induction Kit

The "best" is the ITG Maxogen - but I have never actually had the Taipan etc. on a rolling road (time for King Cone 3? ;))
