A little tour around Ireland in my tubby 1 Year, 8 Months ago Karma: 27
I took a week off to do a bit of driving around the country, I didn't really have much planned .. just see where we ended up depending on the weather. Ended up covering almost 900 miles and the auld girl didn't miss a beat

Limerick. Just after been awoken from it's sleep

Nice! Gorgeous car.


The one with Swaggers old car reminds me of the cartoon called pole position! Nice seeing a two getting properly used

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Thanks so much for all the kind comments guys
It was really enjoyable to have it out on the road and running so good.
It's only when we get back into the boring euro-boxes that take us to work each day, that we can appreciate what a truly great driver's car the MR2 is

Looks mint, kc'd! How did she cope with the roads round Mayo? I did Achill to Westport a while ago and my (totally standard) Passat was bottoming out everywhere with any kind of speed.
Looks like a great trip.

so the faster you go the more she complains but because it gets harder to hear her you have done nothing wrong. I like it I should have got rid of the standard back box when I had mine.

Thanks Tsporter, it is lowered and on coilovers, they almost set to max stiffness, but to be fair it handled great. The rears rubbed the arches a few times, but I had tools and bags for 2 people for the week ... there was not an inch of free space in the boot
