2004 MG TF 135 1.8i from UK and Ireland
I have driven many sports cars and the TF is one of the best for real driver involvement.
Nothing has gone wrong.
This is a good looking car and always turns heads even from drivers of much more exotic cars.
The handling is fantastic and in my experience only achieved by a mid engined rear drive arrangement.
My car has uprated brakes which on the odd occasion they have been used in earnest have proved to be absolutely superb.
I am nearly six feet tall with a fairly large build and find the driving position good.
I can see why some motoring journalists find the driving position high - they are exceptionally tall!
It is the first car I have owned in some time that I take for a drive just for the fun of it.
The car always puts a smile on my face.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am 5 foot 6 and it's misleading to say that there is enough room to comfortably fit in someone who is over 6 feet tall! I can barely rest my foot without is overlapping onto the brake!
Is this guy for real?

I am 5ft 10 inches and drive a TF 160, as yet I have not found the drivers position to be anything else, but comfortable. I would dive at least 4 hours a day in peak traffic, 2 hours am and 2 hours Pm.

Can anyone tell me what space there is behind the front 2 seats in a mg-tf, is there room for children or is it just the 2 seats and that's all you're getting in there?

I'm 6'4" and fit comfortably in the TF. Depends where your height is. Mine is in my legs, for which there is is plenty of room. Tip for fellow six-footers: don't do the natural thing and push the seat all the way back. Bring it forward a notch or two and then lower the seat back. This helps with headroom enormously.

I am 6ft 3" and find the MGTF's seating position is spot on. I cannot however sit comfortably in an MX5.
