gerwynmr2 just saying hi 11 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 6
hi there my name is gerwyn i live in tonypandy in the rhondda south wales,just bought my second mr2 first one bit the dust around a year ago so i tried a calibra v6 for a while sold that a couple of months ago and last week after ages looking at some right scrappers i bought my 1991 japanese import t bar in a peculiar metallic green but looks blue in the sun .
was a bit lucky buying car as fella i bought it off didnt know anything about them. shes got 5 point adjustable suspension all round has been lowered electric everything and it all works, interior is pucca except drivers seat a bit scruffy and only 121450 kilometers thats around 75000 on the clock with all mots since imported in 2000 to verify mileage, engine and gearbox really tight and pokey to say i am well chuffed with car is understatement only thing missing is original double din radio cd player and i only gave £470 pound for it with 10 months mot.knocked him down from £700 it was a bit dirty and 2 new tyres needed.
only downside is i bumped drivers side wing on thursday i have knocked dent out need a toblerone side indicator shall resray the wing and she be back to a1 by end of week
looking forward to taking car to some meets and shows in the near future and now i got a good excuse to visit ireland for a few days in the summer

Welcome to the club mate, enjoy your stay

Glad you're enjoying the new purchase and hopefully we'll see you at some stage over the summer

Here's something to thinks about

Sounds like a good buy you got yourself ... if in good condition the sus set-up might be worth that alone

If you need any bits an pieces you could send a PM to GTBreaker (he is registered on here as well as some other MR2 site). He is a MR2 breaker based in Anglessey. That said, if you have broken a tob then it is a great excuse to get the UK inserts and go for side repeaters ... not a tricky job but looks better IMO.

Hope to see you on our side of the sea soon

Welcome aboard mate. Jesus that was a good price, well done! Enjoy.
I see you are already in contact with Paul (GT_Breaker)
Hopefully you get sorted and keep it between the ditches in future!

Great, fun car. Im back in one also after a few years away. I think if I ever get another car, as an every day car, I will still keep the 2 offside for club/ weekends etc. Certainly do not want to be without one again.

Hope you can make it over sometime over the summer to some event or another.

If you are thinking that way then you should consider the MR2OC Ireland Drive. Its organised by the Scottish reps and is happening from Fri 10th Sept for 4 days. Click the link below for routes etc
