    Yes its an MR2, anything after 96 co's they uprated the BHP to 168 standard 0-60 in 7.7 and the best part is that you can pick one up for around 2,500.. I was looking at one yesterday in a car park it was dark blue with massive alloys and a DVD on the center console.... wow they look great, dont get me wrong i love astra's but i also love sporty looking cars and those thing fly for cheep money, plus its a Jap car so you can do loads to it. easily pushing it past the 200bhp mark..

    Do you like them??

    i had a turbo a while back. 250 bhp standard. Make sure you get rid of the daft 14in wheels as thats what lead to mine dying.

    Lost the back in the rain and hit a crash barrier on a dual carriageway. The early cars had a problem with the rear suspention geometry that lead to very bad lift off oversteer.

    I think it was all changed on 1992 cars so anything after a K plate should handle better.

    If you do get one take it easy until you get the hang of it as they can be a real handful.

    PS forget driving it on snow !!!!
    im bored !
