Hi seems I'm a born again MG man having having driven mended restored MGB's a few years ago. No lets be honest quite a few years ago.

As a new member and having just acquired our MG TF, I'll no doubt be asking all the same questions previous new members have asked and I apologise in advance.
The most important one to me is the upgrade to the breaks, bigger 16" wheels (11 spoke). Guidance on what's needed and from where?

By the way the article on the 'splitter' was interesting and looks great. Had come across this on an ibzia before. Apparently, I told, this is the most popular fitting on quite a few makes of car.

Will watch this forum with anticipation. Cheers. Steve

And dont worry, we all ask questions again and again, even those which are easy to find in the search section on the forum, haha. Take a look at the sticky up top, lots of good and easy to follow info. And once again, welcome aboard.

Hi and welcome. All you need is the discs and pads keep your eyes on ebay they come up pretty often. As for the wheels you do need lightweights or trophys they wont fit under normal vvc 16s normally.

Hi Steve and welcome. That's a nice looking TF.

Don't worry about asking the same questions, give it a month or so and you will be answering them.
