Having seen them on the highland run, they are not a car to sniff at regardless of how quick you think your car is and they hate using fuel.

That one looks really good too.

The lack of kit and leather put me off a bit alright, but I suppose you would have to pay alot more for that kind of spec. I heard that the very early models can be troublesome...

Yep early Toyota VVTIs 00-02 are known oil burners. Not sure if the mr2 is in that category
but the 00 celica VVTIs burn ALOT of oil!

They are in that CATegory, basically oil leaks onto the cat convertor disolves bits of it and they get sucked back into the engine to cause more problems its a 1ZZ engine problem. If I had more time I could explain better.

A popular conversion is to stick the 2ZZ into them, but that brings its own valve lift problems as well.

dont think ive seen anyone on here with it, youd need a new front lip, bonnet looks like its pink and back bumper is far to red? wheels could do with a refurb and chances are that youd need a new aeriel motor or teeth as the rear lights look on but the aeriel isnt up?(might just be the sun making the rear lights look on

Cheers shamrock!

Would there be anything in particular to look out for on these? anything that you would replace on a car with that mileage of that age? Just looking for reasons to push the price down.
