Hi mate cheers for that! Hadn't seen that one, though unfortunately it's red and I'm a bit sick of red cars after owning two red MK2s!

I did see a nice white one on adtrader though, that's one place I hadn't looked before.

Is there anywhere else that I might be missing? I've searched Pistonheads, Autotrader, Adtrader (as of 5 minutes ago) eBay and the classifieds too.

Thanks again :th:

Hi, I’m looking to start my MK1 journey and looking to find and buy my very own, what things should I be looking for while viewing or purchasing an MR2? Rust? Service history? Also how much should I be looking to pay for one?

Read this thread from the beginning, it contains the information you are seeking, prices may be somewhat different, but the info is still relevent. Basically body condition is everything.
