SOLD - Selling my baby!

Post by rach4444 » 20/09/18 11:10

Hi all,
I posted a topic offering parts of my MR2 MK3 as she's failed her MOT and, for me, the cost of getting her through is too high. However, I've been advised to post her as complete here because there may be someone who thinks she's worth working on or can user her parts on their own car.

I have photos but cant work out how to load them so have changed my Avatar. Not sure if you can see that.
Ive also loaded some into the members gallery but not sure how that works either.
If you want more photos, PM me details and I can send some. Email or Messenger - I don't use What'sApp or any other not-so-social apps.

She's a 2000 X reg model, originally silver but wrapped in Matt PINK.
She has potential but a reasonable list of faults which Ill be completely honest about.

Pros:
Shes PINK - what more can I say!
The wrap can be removed
She's still a great runner. Easily does a trip from Wiltshire to London once a week
The alloys have recently been painted black and look like new
4 brand new tires £395 fitted on 15th August
Hard Top - originally silver and has been wrapped in pink. The wrap can easily be removed and the paint underneath is in good nick.

Cons:
She's done 134k miles
The wrap cost £1800 about a year ago. It's not perfect. A few wrinkles around the rear lights but nothing a tube of glue and an OCD MR2 enthusiast couldn't sort out.
Some rubbing down of the rusty bits was done prior to wrapping so not sure what state the paint is in underneath.
New clutch - estimate from garage £504.65
Lower steering column - estimate from garage £407.58
She spits out a litre of oil every 200 miles or so
Air Con not working - has been re-gassed but apparently the pipes are corroded

She's located at SN16 9QL Malmesbury, Wiltshire.
Viewings welcome. She's worth seeing.
