I ran an MGF Brooklands LE for 4 years and an MG TF 135 for 9 years as my everyday transport, until 2010, when I switched to a Mazda MX5 and latterly a Jaguar XK as my daily driver (don’t worry, I also ran a variety of older MGs as well!). I attended MG Live! at Silverstone this year as usual with Natter (Aylesbury) colleagues, where the wife of our Chairman spotted and fell in love with a TF LE500 at one of the trade stalls, and subsequently bought it. Travelling as a passenger in the TF reminded me of how much I enjoyed these exciting little cars, so I resolved to look around and find a good one for myself.

The one I have bought is a platinum silver TF 135 Sunstorm Limited Edition, which has done just 5,000 miles since new in 2005.

The dealer fitted the new multi-layer head gasket, new cambelt and water pump and serviced it before I collected it, so the only improvement I may make to it next year is to replace the springs and shock absorbers for the later, softer ones to improve the ride (something I did on my earlier TF). Otherwise, the car just needs to be driven and enjoyed.
