Hi all,
although I've only had this car since Xmas Eve (nice pressie to myself), its now time to let it go as I have a Supra on the way from Japan. I toyed with the idea of keeping both but I honestly can't see me using the MR2 that much once the Supra turns up.

Firstly, its a UK Rev5 car that's had a full turbo conversion - just wanted to make that clear from the beginning so nobody assumed it was a JDM Rev 5 Turbo.

For the last five years it has been owned and fettled by Stuart Lee (user name stuMR2lee). Those who know Stu, or his reputation, will know how much of a MR2 afficianado he is, and his care and attention to detail is second to none. His work and care really stand out in the condition of this car.

On to the details then (mostly copied from Stuarts original advert.....)
Paintwork is stunning. First registered in 2000, build date 1998.

Garaged since 2012. Chassis on circa 132K miles. However, not much left underneath that is original! Quietest MR2 I've ever been in. No rattles or knocks.
Engine
Rev3 3SGTE Turbo Engine/Gearbox/Driveshaft Conversion (1994 Engine)
Apexi GT Full Stainless Exhaust (with a removeable Active silencer fitted)
Apexi Air Filter Induction Kit (new genuine Apexi filter from Nengun Japan 2015)
HKS BOV recirc adapter fitted but not recirc pipe (better noise imho)
Uprated Intercooler (Greddy Copy) & Fan . GTSChris Shroud fitted

Wheels, Suspension & Running Gear
Full Polybush Kit Suspension/engine Mounts/ARBs
All ball joints, drop links, track rod ends, inner arms, power steering rack replaced
Rear track arms dismantled, cleaned, and copper-greased
Black Bilstein shock absorbers (good used low mileage nearly new set)
New Spax lowering springs (2015)
Whiteline uprated/adjustable anti roll bars
New Blueprint top mounts (August 2016)
Stainless steel bolts on most of the undertrays
Replacement rear subframe (captive nut went) Painted Black
Matt Black Lenso D1R 5 Spoke 17 Alloy Wheels (8 Front/9 Rear with 33 & 43 offset)
Rainsport 3 Tyres all round good tread remaining. 245/40 & 215/40

Brakes
Red Stuff Brake Pads all round never tracked
Grooved discs
All brake calipers & sliders fully refurbished including handbrake mechanism
Hand brake cables replaced
MLR Braided brake hoses and Dot 5.1 brake fluid


Interior
GFB G-Force II Electronic Touch Screen Boost Controller (boost set up around 1.15 bar) with Integral boost/vacuum gauge
MK3 MR2 Steering wheel (air bag deleted) with custom red stitching
Leather & Alcantara seats & door Cards lovely condition
Premium Sound System (retrofitted)
Toad Ai606 Alarm/Immobiliser/Remote Locking - 2 keys/fobs
Red stitched gear gaiter
Sony Stereo - Double Din with Bluetooth & USB
Red colour coded dials/LED backlighting. Matching red heater and door switch controls
Heavier pile carpets (more plush) fitted from a Revision 2 car
Man In Dandism mats
Turbo spring assisted clutch pedal
Delta V Shifter Kit
Toyobd1 Diagnostic system hard wired into car switch in boot. I bought a cheap android tablet to use with this and it all works perfectly and gives lots of additional info and data logging capabilities (tablet not included with sale)

Exterior
Turbo engine lid
Crystal Headlights/Nightbreaker Bulbs/Cree sidelights
Dual rear light conversion
LED reverse light bulbs & interior lights
MK3 JDM front badge
Anniversary 'MR2' centre badge
Aeroware Front Lip
T-bars Tinted - No Leaks

Engine Area
Oil/Filter changed every 3,000 miles by Stuart himself
Iridium Spark Plugs
NGK Leads
Stoney Racing Blue Hoses
Berk decat downpipe & bracket
BRD Shift Bushes
Brand new Alternator & Belt (August 2016)

Additional
Aluminium Radiator and Longlife Coolant (2014)
Frunk & Engine Lid Gas Struts

No faults at all. Being a UK car it has no aircon. Sills have been repaired/replaced where necessary. Solid car.

Chassis has done around 132K miles but everything underneath has been pretty much replaced! Protected inside with waxoyl stuff.

The Turbo engine/gear box I was assured had done considerably less miles than the chassis and I believe the cambelt was changed on conversion (2012).

Drives like a new car. It really does feel very solid and rattle/squeak free

MOT Until July 2017
Last MOT Advisories:
Front Shock absorber has a light misting of oil (2.7.3). Having checked this it wasn't leaking. The misting was just from the CorrosionX that Stuart used to protect the suspension components.

Exhaust noisy (7.1.4). Forgot to put the Active Silencer in for the MOT!

Don't expect loads of invoices from so-called specialists. In Stuarts ownership it didn't see a garage (other than his own). His garage is affectionately known as the 'Essex MR2 Hospital'. Not many MR2s have been maintained to this level. Very easy car to work on as practically everything has been apart, cleaned, & copper-greased at some point in recent years.

Those who know Stuart Lee will know his great reputation, which is borne out in the fantastic condition of this car. I'm sure he will be happy to answer anything if you wanted to check out any details of the car. Also, Luke at Pacific Works knows the car (he did a wheel alignment for me a few months ago and had checked the car over prior to that. I'm sure he would also give it a glowing report)

Below are some photos from Stuarts advert - I'll try and get my own taken at the weekend if the sun makes an appearance, but it looks exactly the same now as when these pics were taken.

Thanks for the glowing testimonial Michael. Shame you are selling so soon but good luck with the sale and hope the new owner gets as much joy out of the car as I, and hopefully you, did.

Have to give credit to Chris on here for the original conversion and excellent starting base.

Best MR2 I've owned and/or driven by miles.

totally agree with you there, and I've owned a few over the years.
I bought it literally within 5 minutes of turning up to see it, it was that good.

If it doesn't sell, its not the end of the world as it can live undercover in my flats basement garage (but I'd obviously prefer someone else enjoy it)
