I have wondered for sometime about the essential differences between the B
and the C. I feel like I'm walking a thin line here as its been my
impression that the C, while perhaps a good idea, never had a chance for its
'bugs' to be fully worked out. I *don't* mean to trash the car *or* the
folks who own and love them. I have *no* desire to disparage any MG. I
*would* like to hear the net wisdom on a few things---regarding impressions
about the C that I've picked up from others (who may or may not know what
they're talking about). In fact, I've never spoken at length to a C owner.
How about now?
I bring this up because of the recent net-notice of a nice sounding C/GT for
sale and my smouldering interest to get into a GT, possibly for all year
use. Let me ask a few questions if I may.
Please confirm or refute the following impressions I have:
The C has a higher "top end" and its 0-60 is quicker?
The typical tired C has a pronounced understeer problem?
Having said that, a well sorted C is almost as "sporting" in its road
manners as a B?
The C is more of a "grand touring car" than the B?
Engine and tranny parts for the C are very hard to find?
With the exception of the hood, body pannels are the same?
The last iterations of the C had made progress on the understeer?
With the exception of front suspension, engine and tranny, the C and the B
Many many thanks,

p.s. and have a great weekend, too! (i.e. don't watch the stupor-bowl)
