Toyota MR2

What are your opinions on them. After being persuaded not to buy an M3 as my first car, I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with the MR2. They look really nice, and pretty quick for a 4 cyl engine.

what year? yeah, theyre fun. just remember the engine is in the back, so if you happen to break the tyres loose around a corner, chances are youre gunna loop it, especially if its your first car. also M3= not the best first car. although cool, probably to fast

That's not your biggest problem with a mid-engined Toyota.

Kian123: How much experience do you have working on cars? Any kind of mechanical work is gonna cost $$. Don't believe me, try changing the spark plugs or oil on an MR2. You'll soon see why.

Oh dear:

I personally dont have much experience, but my dads friends all own car dealerships, and would be willing to fix my car usually for whatever the parts cost, and no labor costs. I was looking at a 1991-1993, with a t-top.

I cant exactly remeber the years but i think thats a MKII and I actually like the cars alot and yes maintenance is a pain but its not too bad, Ive worked on a few at work, try changing the back for spark plugs on a F-body haha. I'd recommend the turbo one as its not too fast to begin with but it still has alot of potential.

But your driving maturity will play a big role and you may want to get an N/A version.

Or something non mid-engined. I don't think the M3 nor the MR2 make good starter cars if I'm honest.
