Lovely car and colour, well wear! Also interested in your planned power upgrades!?? KC'd for starting the thread!
When i went to view my first mr2, I had originally arranged a viewing for a different one, while on the way I rang the seller for proper directions and got a real bad vibe off him compared to the first call, he came across as a right pr1ck tbh so I didn't even bother going to see it. Like yourself I was determined not to waste the day so I pulled in and brought up donedeal on the phone. I decided to go view the closest one to me, even though the ad was terrible, two pictures taken in the dark, loads of spelling mistakes, really chavvy steering wheel. Anyway I went and met the guy, very sound ex mechanic and toyota fanatic, had a mint corolla(dunno corollas but it seemed like a rare one). He was a foreign guy which explained the spelling mistakes. Anyway the car was totally undersold in the ad, and price
. Coilovers, stainless exhaust, project mu pads, ebc discs, and something that i found out later that brought her up to 186bhp.... Took her for a spin and she was tight as a ducks arse. Deal done, new steering wheel and battery and straight through the NCT.
So it can work both ways I suppose!
