The problem in buying one from anyone on this forum is that we all feel our cars are marvellous and therefore probably have an inflated view of their value. On the other hand those selling on ebay are probably people who no longer love their MG and are therefore happy to accept a lower offer.

So my suggestion is look on ebay. If you see anything you like, post a link on this site and others may well comment as to whether or not it seems like a good buy. (On the down side if it is a marvellous bargain others on here may snap it up.)

Good luck with the hunt and let us know when you get something.

Good luck with your search, personally I would lean towards buying from an enthusiast on here but, whatever you decide, make a thorough inspection. L

Good luck with your search. There won't be many on sale at this time of year and it's unlikely any bargains are to be had. The market picks up around Easter where the saturation of vehicles for sale mean prices drop.

Hi Gus,

We (my wife and I) have an MGTF 115 "Cool Blue" metallic blue, which we are interested in selling. In fact, joined the forum specifically for that reason as we'd prefer it went to a good home rather than WBAC.com.

3 former keepers since first registered 31 July 2003, 1588cc, 169 G/KM, petrol. I guess you know what the car is all about anyway seeing as you're looking for one of these specifically.

Bought for my wife as a present April 2012 @ 3500 as mint condition with new soft top and cylinder head modified, we hardly use nowadays and annual mileage has been low, hence reason for selling. it feels a criminal shame for the car to be sitting unused when someone could be getting some fun from it!

From MOT cert : 337 miles in 2013/14 ; 1510 in 2014/15 ; 506 in 2015/2016 ; roughly 500 2016/to date. Current mileage is about 20180 but not sure as battery is off the car for the winter. Could put it back on get you an exact mileage if you're interested in the car.

Odometer history:
27 4 2013 = 17326 miles
17 5 2014 = 17663 miles
13 6 2015 = 19173 miles
11 6 2016 = 19679 miles

First year kept outside under car cover, but has since been kept in garage after we moved house. Currently SORN but have usually just taxed for the better weather each year, around end of March. Would include the car cover (Stormforce CCC167) in the sale, cost 127 new.

Last MOT (11JUN2016) passed with 2x advisories :
001 Play in steering rack inner joint(s)
002 Track rod end ball joint has slight play offside front (2.2.B.1f)

Garage said shouldn't be a problem and would probably pass next year's MOT with same advisories given low mileage, they're duty bound to report but didn't think corrective action was necessary at that time.

We are looking for about 1600 given the low mileage - let me know if you're interested ; thought I'd respond here first before putting on the general "For Sale" section.

(I should point out that Karen, my wife, is the registered forum user hence posting in her name!)

Look forward to hearing from you,

Derek Hopgood.

I have one that I bought as an MOT fail.

It needs about 500 worth of work but it seems a decent car.

I'm in Bolton too.

Doesn't the lack of demand supress prices in winter?
