You never fail, Muppetman, do you?Puppetland said:The Nanjing MG TF is going to really struggle to get sales in the UK next to superior and more modern products from other manufacturers. Will the Nanjing MG TF be the only new convertible on sale in the UK that does NOT have the option of an electric hood? (MX5 now has the option of an electric hard top) Who wants to be seen heaving up a canvass hood in a car park?

That somewhat contradicts the expert statement below that flies in the face of the current trend. I mean, every manufacturer is bringing out electric roof mechanisms (hard or soft top) on their convertibles - but not MG.MartinW said:Anyway, Rover had an electric rag-top roof on their 200 cabriolet back in 1994,
Premier convertibles from BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Saab etc. are now fully automatic with no levers to engage or disengage on the windscreen frame. They are slick in operation and look ultra cool when lowered or closed. They are also excellent technology.Seamaster said:Takes longer, weighs more, reduces boot space.
