MR2 _1


Elaine has been interested in these 'ere MR2 things for a while, so we decided to investigate a bit further.

So, off to our friendly importers for a grope around a '92 turbo, just to see what there were all about.

Conclusion is...

Want one :-)

Very comfy driving position, remarkably good visibility considering the height of the car and the enclosed rear screen. Lots of adjustment for seat and steering column gave natural driving positions for Elaine and I.

Very practical too !  Acres of space in the front for at least one Tesco bag + space for possibly 2 cooler boxes in the rear ?

Turbo model may be a bit keen for general use and also has a bit of a sting in the insurance department, so looks like we are going for a n/a with a T bar roof. (When it finishes it's cruise from the other side of the world).

5th March '05, took a quick visit (3 hours each way!!)  for a test drive...

44,000 km on the clock which is about 27,500 miles in old money, so not too bad for a 12yr old car !
