Hey All..

New member here so go easy ;)

I am currently in a position to purchase a new car and I fancy something along the lines of the MR2....... I have £5000 tops to spend...

Now my only problem is I know bugger all about the MR2.. :(

What models should I be looking at ( or avoiding ) ( I fancy the idea of the Targa roof ) Are there any 'known' issues to look out for etc etc......

I'm sure you have all been asked these questions hundreds of times before..

Thanks in advance...

Oops sorry was dozing......

Hiya fella and welcome to the Club, MR2 I have to say is a superb choice, but then again as most people here will tell you I am very very biased....

It's a dhame you weren't on last week we had a lovely MR2 for sale for 4k it was a stunner....

For 5k a t-bar is easy, what part of the country are you in ?

You could possibly get a turbo but for that price would stick to an NA, although [remembers friend is selling] would you be interested in a red turbo t-bar in excellent conditrion if it hasn't already been sold ???

It used to be an IMOC members so has been looked after ?
