Whats it worth?? 8 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 11
hey guys,
Going advertising my MR2 this week, have her a year and half and want to get started on my diesel mr2 so need the funds and iv no idea what its worth, checked other mr2s for sale and the prices are so different, from 500euro to 5k and everything in between!
She is pretty much standard, heres the spec,
1995 rev3 tbar in red,
125k/77miles, D2 coilovers, half leather, fensport ct26 turbo, 17alloys with new tyres.
Passed nct a month ago, so has nearly 2 years, needs nothing, Just back from a 5k round trip to spain without missing one beat, over the year iv done the clutch, timing belt, shocks, droplinks & rollbar bushes, pads, track rod ends, ball joints, etc,
So it stands me alot, and i know i wont get what it stands me back but whats a fair asking price? and a realistic one, that it will actually sell? not still here in 6months cause im looking too much!
Any help appreciated............

I don't think your mad, Mitch. The figures you get from the diesel engine are equivalent in terms of bhp to a NA MR2 and much much better in terms of torque. I think you could find you get better performance and better mpg than the NA drivers. Also, don't forget, that the MR2 is lighter and less drag than an Auris or Avensis.

0-60 in a diesel is always a bit of a let down/bad guide as I have found my diesels are sluggish in 1st gear and the peak power range is very short compared to a petrol car i.e. about 2500-4500rpm instead of 3000-7000 rpm in petrol. The best way I've found for quick acceleration from standing start is a very quick change to second.

Your big win will be the 30-80mph acceleration, when the relatively massive amount of torque will kick in.

In terms of your car and value I would say about £3500 would be the price I would expect to see it go for in NI. Prices seem to be slightly higher in the South so maybe €4500, but you could advertise it slightly more to allow for the inevitable bargaining

@spanky-cheers, finally some1 on my wave lenght lol!
It took my car 3 fills to get tru france, and 3 fills to get back, and at 177/8 cent a litre, its dear!! not including ferries or tolls, i spent about 1200euro on feul in 2 weeks.......so my diesel mr2 is gonna happen.....
Iv just advertised the car cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/2086206 and settled on 3700 as a starting figure with some room for bargaining so we'll see how it goes!

There is always a bit of me that worries I advertised something too cheap when that happens. Hope fully you are happy with what you got for it.

Good luck with the search for the worlds most 'friendly' MR2

Give Traynors a call - Moy near Dungannon. Massive scrappy that may have what you are looking for.

Where are you based?
Try MSI(Motor Salvage Ireland) they're one of the biggest breakers in the country, a lot of the insurance companies w/o's go there.
They're bound to have what your looking.

cheers guys,
A dismantler wont be able to help me cause i want a whole car, i need everything, not just engine, every sensor, control unit, wire, etc etc and they wont allow me the complete car for some reason, tried it before.
think its cause they write them off and cudnt risk some1 putting it back on the road.
Theres a few on ebay, but big job get them home but its an option.....

I have an engine crane and a Hilux if that would help you out, just find it and we will collect it.

Would love to see this get done in an MR2, just check out your insurance first.
