I just bought (Saturday) a 1998 GTV 2.0
It is in good condition apart from the odd small bumper scrape and a couple of car park dents.
The interior is nice though the seats are showing signs of cracking slightly - any recommends for them -saddle soap and some form of cream I am guessing.
The centre console is really sticky and I dont know how to clean that up without it getting covered in hair off the cloth.
I want to use the car as my daily driver - I commute 40 miles a day (20 each way) and have been using a mix lately of my Rover diesel which this replaces and my MGB GT.
I would like to keep on top of the car and make sure it is well looked after and kept in good nick so it stays reasonably reliable.
Do you guys use any kind of recommended fluids - engine oils etc does the car love a particular brand more than others?
The MG requires a weekly check (more like daily) on engine oil,brake fluids,clutch fluid, water levels etc and just wondered as this is a bit more sporty than my fill and forget Rover diesel will it require plenty of tlc to keep it happy.
I love the car already and have been after one for ages - would have adored the V6 but so many pennies for Petrol these days
oh yeah, where is the bonnet release
and can you get a haynes for these or whats the better choice?
