1993 Toyota MR2 Mk2 Turbo Rev3

Well its only been 3 months since I sold mine and its gone from this:






to this wonderful ebay listing!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/toyota-mr2-rev3-turbo-t-bar-/272833306381?hash=item3f8621df0d:g:NxMAAOSw67lZrS0C






what makes it worse (besides the obvious molestation is the fact the seller is now hiding the overheating issues, which I was very open and transparent about)

His reply back to me when I mentioned I've seen the car for sale a few months ago and whether he fixed the overheating issues was "I dont know what your on about, theres no overheating" - little did he know he was talking to me!

Anyway I'm sure the price and body kit alone is enough to put any one from here off this purchase. But I thought I would flag that the seller is not be honest (especially as he is asking for 3k more, not fixed the overheating which is likely a knackered water pump e and talked down the gearbox issues)

Grr dishonest sellers really wind me up! even more so when its your old car.

Rant over... [Rolling Eyes]

Bet the overheating on boost is caused by a cracked block.

to be honest the overheating only ever took place on idle, and went away if the car was revved. I thought it was probably the water pump as whilst I was moving and boosting the car was happy. lots of traffic was another story.

I had the same thing when i sold my yellow rev2 tubby.

The bloke scuffed the front bumper and added 1000 to the price.

He even used the pictures i took to sell it ! [Shame on you]

It's a damn shame as I'm looking for a white or yellow MR2 at the minute. Came across this one, quick google of the reg plate.... and here we are!

Glad the thread served its purpose! Just wanted to highlight the dishonesty of the current seller.

sure thing not a problem, I've never seen the logic behind hiding a price - at the end of the day it helps us all realistically value our cars. Not the silly prices people stick them up for!

I put it up for 3250, and took 2700 for it. Bare in mind it had overheating issues, a dodgy handbrake and crunching gearbox.

Haha, it's a lovely car but I've always missed my MR2 since I did the swap - not to mention missed having disposable income... the Supra certainly eats all of that! [Sad]
