  • MG TD BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG TD BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 19th September 2018

    The T-Type series had started with the TA of June 1936. This was not universally welcomed by MG enthusiasts as it was less sporty than previous Midgets, not least because it had an OHV MPJG engine which was seen as a retrograde step from the earlier overhead cam units...

  • MGA BUYER’S GUIDE

    MGA BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 12th September 2018

    The MGA might look sleekly modern compared to the T-Types it replaced, but those sensuous curves sat on a separate chassis and wooden floorboards. Launched in September 1955 as a two-seat roadster...

  • MG RV8 BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG RV8 BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 4th September 2018

    The MG RV8 is an updated incarnation of the MGB Roadster fitted with a 3.9-litre Rover V8 fuel injected engine, a Rover five-speed manual gearbox and significantly uprated suspension, brakes and interior trim. This means that aside from the normal list of checks that apply to buying any MGB or MGB V8, most of which revolve around the body integrity, there are RV8 specific aspects...

  • MG Z-TYPE MAGNETTE BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG Z-TYPE MAGNETTE BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 22nd August 2018

    The Z-Type Magnette debuted at the London Motor Show in October 1953, with very obvious connections to the Wolseley 4/44 of 1952 but also with enough changes under that curvaceous skin to make the MG a true sporting saloon that outperformed its stablemate in every key area...

  • MG MK3 MIDGET BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG MK3 MIDGET BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 30th July 2018

    Nobody ever seems to mention the pejorative term ‘badge engineering’ when talking of MG’s postwar Midgets, but Austin-Healey had already tested the water in 1958 with their Sprite, which lost its Frogeye looks in 1961 upon the launch of the Mk2...

  • MG3 BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG3 BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 23rd July 2018

    When the MG3 was launched in the UK in September 2013, there were plenty of people who predicted savage depreciation for the new model on the secondhand market. They based that prediction in no small measure on the experience of the MG6, which soon saw very low residuals and heavy discounting by MG themselves...

  • MG TF BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG TF BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 9th July 2018

    The MG TF arrived in January 2002 with a four model line-up: 115, 120 Stepspeed (CVT auto), 135 and 160 (VVC). The range starts with a 1600cc model with 115Ps, a manual five speed PG1 gearbox and a minimised specification list compared to other models. This includes natural black...

  • MG ZR BUYER’S GUIDE

    MG ZR BUYER’S GUIDE

    Glenn Rowswell on 3rd July 2018

    The R3 variant of Rover 200 which arrived in 1995 was essentially a new Rover design, but one which contained considerable carryover from the previous Honda-derived cars. It was facelifted as the Rover 25 in 1999, which in turn spawned the MG ZR in 2001...
