There are four versions of the MGTF (not to be confused with the TF), 
ranging from (IIRC) 105 HP to 160 HP.  3 of the 4 use a cable operated 
(and maligned) MANUAL transmission.  I want that TF160 rather badly, but 
alas, I cannot have it.

The other uses a CVT.

This I do agree with, the only modern ultra-frills sports car I can 
think of right now is the Elise, and I can't get this either.

My opinions are mine, and do not reflect the views of the university.
   Security, like correctness, is not an add-on feature.
