well some one is come picking up my car tomorrow for 3400, i have been talking to this guy with this mr2 and i got him to drop the price to 2500, the car has jdm 94+ taillights, 18 inch wheels, kit, racing seats,steering wheel, jvc dvd player and the best is a low mileage 3rd 3sge.......the bad is he has no mirrors, he had a accident so he replace all the parts and he has a small dent in the quarter panel and needs a hood, the motor has header,exhuast, intake and he is giving a spare motor his old 5sfe. what you guys think worth 2500??? also has t-tops and car runs great carbon fiber wing which i will take out and seats need to be bolt down. please let me know here is the link

Hard to say but if you can check out the frame and be sure its straight then i say its a good deal.

yeah i was thinking the same thing, the bad is he lives 3 hours away, i would hate to do a drive up there for nothing and come back empty handed, looks like he spent some money into it, i do have better pics, well the good thing is that i will have 1 grand left over to buy some parts and paint it. more opnions please, will be going to pick it up soon.

lol, that guy tried to trade me like crazy for my 240 when I was offering to trade it for a mr2/alltrac ... the car looks decent I seen other pics I do believe some of the paint had cracks in it but Im not 100%.... I would do it if you have another car Im assuming your 7th gen is reliable right?

yeah the 7th gen is good to go for now, i will have a grand left over to fix up the mr2, nice hood, f-1 mirrors and some paint, and of course i will do the body work my self....i really want a mr2 though. i think this would be nice since it is modded already. its a good start.....for now anything much i can do to a 3rd gen 3sge?

why you say that? alot of cars have been wrecked and still fixed, i hit in the quarter panel before and the insurance fixed it, and it was put on a frame machine, never had a problem in 3 years.....its nothing serious

my car was wrecked and its a great car, you get a good enough mechanic do to the work and you will never know its been wrecked other then your metal knowledge of it, i say go for it, if you change your mind i bet you could turn around and sell it for what you bought it for

IF i remember that car, it has the dent/crack from drifting? Ya the park bench is bad, but i guess for 2500. IF only it was a BEAMS or 3SGTE.

2500 is still a deal.. if youve looked at mr2s and what there going for now... its just gotten out of hand..

thats the same thing i as thinking guys, the shells go for 2k ,and a swapped one goes for 5-7k, they are bit pricey, and he is got alot of parts on there too, i can always take them out and sell them, hes go some 18 inch nice wheels, some nice jdm 94+ tails which we all know they go for a good amount, a carbon fiber wing which will come off the first day i get it, ,and will sell the jvc dvd player and alpine cd player. it does have a 3rd 3sge thats the only reason i am interested in......best for last i asked him whats his best offer, he said from 3200 to 2500 now i am having him drop it 200-300 more.so he is thinking about it, he is a young kid as in 18. i am thinking weds to drive up to kansas to get it.......

HELL YEAH!! AND THE THINK WAS JUNK....he did not tell me he ran into a poll....he replaced everything as in the wheel, axles,hub, door, still a dent in the quarter panel, no trunk hing small dent in the back. seats are not bolted down, no signal, on and on and on, he wanted 2100 but then it was going to cost me 1500 or more to fix for a old car paint and all that. 4k.screw that .thanks for reminding me .....might had frame damage too
