MG TF: Buying guide and review (2002-2005)

MG TF: Buying guide and review (2002-2005) Classic and Performance Car
MG TF MG TF MG TF MG TF
MG was known for its sporty two seaters back in the ‘50s, and its return to the category in the 1990s after a period of re-badged saloon and hatchback Austin-Rover models in the 1980s was well received. 
 
The MG TF may be an increasingly rare sight nowadays, but it was massively popular back in the early 2000s, with it good looks and competitive pricing it was the UK’s best-selling two-seater sports car for a number of years. So what made the TF such a desirable machine? At the turn of the century, MG wasn’t particularly flush with development funds so while rivals were releasing new models, the MGF received a huge number of upgrades and clever development, turning it into something that looked a bit sharper, and drove a lot better.
 
Making do with minor exterior cosmetic changes, the bulk of the changes were done under the skin. The suspension received a thorough overhaul, ditching the hydragas units of the F in favour of some conventional springs and dampers – improving handling greatly. 
 
Despite a few reliability issues, these little cars have developed quite a following. Turbulent times for the MG brand in the early 2000s meant that the TF was discontinued, along with all other MG Rover vehicles in 2005, however it was re-introduced in limited numbers by the new Chinese owners in 2007. Our focus will be on the cars built up to the end of MG/Rover ownership.
 
Which one to buy?
 
Modern convertibles tend to insulate their occupants from the driving experience a bit better than their older counterparts. This can be a boon on longer trips but shorter blasts down winding roads tend to be a bit less engaging. The TF definitely does not isolate you from the driving experience! The ride is firm, the canvas roof is pretty basic and road noise is ever present. 
 
Not ideal as a daily driver or motorway mile-muncher, but it’s just the thing to blow out the cobwebs on a Sunday afternoon. Practicality is a bit better than front engined rivals due to the extra storage space where the engine would go, with just about enough space to fit a weekend’s worth of luggage for two.
 
There are four different versions of the four-cylinder Rover K series engine available in the TF. First off was the entry-level 114bhp 1.6-litre, which was only available with a manual gearbox. A 1.8-litre version produced 120bhp in automatic form or 134bhp when paired with a manual gearbox. The top option was a VVC equipped 1.8 which produced 157bhp and could sprint to 60mph in under 7.0 seconds. The light weight of the TF means that even the 1.6 is an enjoyable drive, although many say that the best all-rounder is the manual 134bhp 1.8.
 
A number of special edition models were released such as the Sprint SE, Cool Blue SE and Sun Storm LE. Most changes were limited to unique paint and trim options, however the SE models generally came with the desirable wheels and uprated brakes from the TF 160. 
 
Three Sports Pack options were also available, offering lowered suspension on the SP1 and adding 16-inch alloys and ABS on the SP2 and SP3. 2005 model year cars had a hugely desirable glass rear window, which was a great improvement over the plastic items in earlier cars however as production ended in early April it may be easier to find an earlier car and retrofitting this item.
 
Due to their relatively low value servicing may have been skimped on so ensure that there is a comprehensive service history as neglected cars will cost more in the long run.

Common problems
 
· Parts are in good supply, reasonably priced and available from a number of sources, the TF was built in relatively large numbers so there should not be any issues in keeping your MG running well.
 
· Head gasket issues due to overheating are a common TF issue. It is a regular problem with the Rover K series engines, and many running changes were carried out in an attempt to alleviate the problem. Keeping the cooling system in top condition is key as well as ensuring that servicing is carried out regularly.
 
· Rust can affect the car in a number of places, especially around the air intakes, sills, indicators and front wings. If the sub-frames show signs of rust then walk away.
 
· Water leaks can aggravate the rust issue so check for wet interior trim in the footwells and boot. Replacement rubber seals are a good investment.
 
· Badly aligned wheels often show up in heavy wear on the inside edge of the front tyres, easy to rectify but worth checking before you buy.
 
· The MG TF dropped the MG F’s Hydragas suspension system so there are no hydraulic leaks to worry about however old dampers can leak and brittle rubber mountings can make the ride very hard.
 
Model history
 
2002: MG TF goes on sale. Major suspension redesign, uprated engines and updated bodywork differentiate it from MG F. Sprint SE special edition released in July, 600 units built. Available on TF135 and TF 160 variants. TF 135 models received uprated brakes and ABS.
 
2003: Cool Blue SE special edition released in March, offering bespoke trim and three unique colour options. Available on TF 115 and TF 135. Sun Storm LE special edition released in October, included standard hard top, and was available on all engine options. 500 units produced.
 
2004: 80th Anniversary LE special edition released in January. Three unique colour options, 16” mag wheels and Anniversary logos distinguish these models from others in the range.
Spark SE special edition launched in July, offering usual SE trim on all engine sizes and some new paint options.

Summary and prices
 
If you are looking for a bargain convertible then there are few better options out there than an MG TF, prices start at under £1000 for a tired high-miler while top spec cared for models are generally not much more than £2500. At these prices restoring or overhauling a banger will almost always cost more than getting a good one in the first place and as there are a lot to choose from you can afford to be picky. Arguably, the sweet spot in the range is the TF 135 which provides as much performance as you would need and is less likely to have been abused than the top models. Find a low mileage special edition car and who knows, it may even appreciate in value in the years to come.

A Clarks Rover sales invoice confirms the purchase price of £14,583.25 less £6,500 part exchange for her 1997 MGF. After just seven months of ownership, Miss Barlow found her dream first home and persuaded her father, James Barlow, to purchase the car from her in order to have a deposit to put down!

  • MG TF 1954 Manual Red Petrol 69000

    £27,995 £27,995

    1954 MG TF. MG Red with Biscuit leather upholstery. The first post-war MG, the TC, bore great similarity to the pre-war TB and was superseded by the TD in 1950. Though visually similar to the earlier cars, it was built around the more modern chassis of the Y-Type Saloon, and it was around the uprated MKII TD that the TF of 1953 was based. Intended as an interim model pending the arrival of the upcoming MGA, its fared-in headlights and sloping radiator grille ensured more modern looks, and for the last year of manufacture the engine capacity was increased to 1,466cc. Just 3,400 of these so-called TF 1500s were ultimately produced. It was repatriated back to the UK in 2017. A back to chassis restoration has been carried out some years ago and the car is still in outstanding condition. The previous owner had been looking for the best example he could find and eventually settled on this car cherishing it in his ownership. The car drives and performs well, having always been garaged and comes with a fresh MoT upon sale even though the MG is exempt. This endearing little car would seem like a good way into MG ownership, being in ready-to-go condition with lots of enjoyable miles (and smiles) still on offer. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

    £22,995 £22,995

    1954 MG TF 1250cc. Very rare U.K supplied right hand drive car. Last of the MG T-Series line and arguably the best, the TF was introduced in October 1953. Although mechanically very similar to its TD predecessor, the provision of a shorter radiator, revised wing line and faired-in headlamps lent it an altogether sportier air. Old English White with red leather upholstery and a black mohair hood and side screens. An older restoration that is still very smart and has covered only 1,000 miles in the last ten years. This TF has been with its last owner for 12 years and has been loved during that time. Still driving very well this TF is just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands for the upcoming season and would grace any classic meet. Being 1954 this MG is now MOT exempt however we will add a new MOT upon sale for your own peace of mind. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

The incredible paint finish is virtually flawless and entirely commensurate with the exceptionally low mileage covered by this cherished, garaged example, owned by just two keepers from new. The superb underside is beautifully clean with PDI marking still visible, and the original panels even display factory spot welds to the wheel arches. Very faint scratches can just be seen on one rear bumper corner and the drivers door handle has a small blemish, but barely worthy of mention. All trim sections are excellent and the manufacturer badges and Union Jack wing plates remain unblemished. The durable woven acrylic fabric grey hood is effortless in operation and in perfect condition, and the plastic rear screen is clear and undamaged. A truly exceptional example and without question one of the best. INTERIOR The comfortable yet snug ‘Ash’ cockpit offers real sports car appeal with open top motoring delights. The Sebring cloth fluted seat facings with plain black bolsters, (Code PVD), are in perfect order, and the matching door cards and black carpeting, protected by rubber over mats, are pristine and adhere to such cosseted ownership and little use. The flawless dashboard houses fully functioning switchgear, and the silver faced dials and chunky leather trimmed steering wheel emphasise the sports car appeal. The original snug MG tonneau is the genuine item for a super neat fit. A surprisingly large rear boot is pristine and houses the original MG Rover warning triangle and first aid kit, unopened and still in the cellophane! Look no further for top-down sports car fun! ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The original four cylinder 1796cc engine produces 136bhp at 6700rpm and 165Nm torque at 5000rpm enabling a top speed of 127mph and 0-60 in just 8.2 seconds. The mid-mounted engine and rear wheel drive configuration display all the correct sports car credentials to ensure optimum driving enjoyment! A cambelt and water pump change have just been carried out in April 2018. The short throw sports ratio five speed gearbox completes the package with precise changes. Exhilarating! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The factory fitted 15” square spoke alloy wheels are as new with original MG badged centre caps. The front and rear tyres of size 185/55 R15 and 205/50 R15 respectively show plenty of tread, and the spare wheel with original Goodyear GT65 tyre is secured in the front compartment along with the jack and brace stored in the leatherette bag. Originality seekers will be pleased to see factory protective wax and PDI markings in the front luggage compartment. The braking system incorporates electronic anti-lock assistance and discs all round (ventilated front) to offer positive stopping power. HISTORY FILE Supplied new under the MG Rover staff vehicle scheme by Rover GMBH on the 13th September 2002, this outstanding MG TF has covered an incredibly low 20,339 miles from new, with just one former keeper. The first owner, Mrs Annette Allsopp, an employee of Rover purchased the car for £14,399 with just 9 miles on the clock, as confirmed by the purchase key tag issued by Rover GMBH. Mrs Allsopp owned the vehicle for 13 years whereby it was purchased by the previous keeper, Mrs Tracy Gordon in October 2015. Used as a dry weather weekend car by both owners and kept garaged, this exceptionally low mileage example has been preserved in amazing order. The original handbook and service book is stamped with six entries, the most recent carried out at 19,149 miles, and a cambelt and water pump change in April 2018 has been carried out to offer complete peace of mind. There are two original keys with remote fobs and code card. Previous MOT certificates in the history file further validate the genuine low mileage. A dedicated enthusiast club scene, coupled with excellent parts supply network and easy maintenance, make good examples are a sheer joy to own. This pristine MG TF offers the complete package of a preserved, well maintained and superb performing example, fast becoming a hugely desirable modern classic. MOT April 2019, HPI Clear.
