How about seeking some informed opinion or, dare I say it, actually see or
experience the MGF before firing off such nonsense.

Needless to say we have the MX5 (Miata to you) and the MGF here and I can
assure you I know which has seen the approval of the non "hairdresser"
section of the car market and it's not the Jap car!  

I think Rover are right not to market the MGF in the US, some of you don't
deserve it.
