Thinking of selling up
 
but in two minds.

I have loved and still do, my S for 7+ years but have a deep hankering for an MGB roadster.
I love the thought of the MG as it's been on my wish list since I was a kid but each time I think I'll sell the S I get a real feeling that I may regret passing it on.

I'm at a time in my life when I think I've done with the joys of S ownership and would appreciate the quieter life behind the wheel of one of the best loved British sports cars of all time.

Tell me I'm wrong.

You're wrong. Sentimentality is the only thing they've got going for them

Don’t do it!

You’ll regret it the moment you see your S being driven away from your house by someone else.

I had both for a couple of years ,sold the MG when I realised I kept picking up the keys for the Honda every time I went out! Unless you pick up a really well restored one,the MG will cost an arm and a leg to keep on the road.

Currently looking for restored and well loved cars, they do seem to be around but just not as local as I'd like.

I've had loads of MGs including Bs.

Never found them expensive to run and there are few easier cars to work on.

Just don't buy a rusty one or it could easily be beyond economic repair.

Obviously light years away from an S2000 but then you drive it in a completely different way.

There's a lot to be said for just pottering in an old car.

I think you need both, really.

The two could not really be more different if they tried.

I wish I could afford and have the garage space to accommodate both, I'd do that in a heartbeat.

i recall the days of points, distributors, carbs and chokes and its all good so long as you are not relying on that car to start

how many miles do you do in the S?

Had one for years. It was shite. Slow, poor handling, leaking water everywhere. Lots of maintenance. Rust.
