Hey Guys,

I urrently own a rev3 mr2 turbo that i'm thinking about selling to get a Supra. I'm not gonna be able to live with the running costs of a tt so it'll be an n/a for me.

I realise i'm gonna lose power and a considerable amount of performance but i can live with that.

So i'm wondering what kind of car can i expect to get for 4.5k??

Some pics of my 2

Welcome aboard, have a look over the for sale section to see what sort of cars are available in your budget, you should be able to pick up a nice one though :)

I went modded MR2 to TT and never looked back, might have been a different story had I gone NA though. I think DannyW also went to NA and within months was after a TT.

Does anyone know if running an NA is actually any cheaper than a TT (apart from the initial purchase of the car), I'm guessing servicing/tyres etc would be pretty even, TT being a little thirstier on fuel.

Nice, save more for the TT, the supra is quite a lot more heavier than the MR2 so really you need a turbo to keep up with some of todays modern cars!

So far its just fuel and that difference isn`t that much(unless you have a heavy right foot) insurance was 30 more.I think the major difference is if anything goes wrong with the turbos.

I ve driven a NA supra and a rev2 MR2 turbo and performance wise, the MR2 was much better.

Your car looks like a pile of sh*te and you couldn't drive a Supra to save yourself, to much power for you :p




Nice 2 Mike, when did you get that, thought you still had the N/A?

Cheers

Todd

PS, Guys, mikes had a shot of an N/A before so he knows what the power is like.

Cheers guys!

I think the worry withy a tt would be if it went pop and the overall fuel costs etc, I've driven todd's old sup and it was real nice, obv it's not a fast as my 2 but then i don't think a std tt would be either but i think the looks make up for it!

That's a cracking spec on the 2 and it looks a stunner :cool:

For the money you've got I'd be looking for a nice manual N/A or maybe more up your street an Areo Top but it'll be an auto.

Don't dismiss the auto (can hear you now ;) ) it really is good and you will not get the areo in manual form, unless it's been converted and it'll probably be a TT anyway.

I'm not fussed about it being an auto tbh, I've heard the autos are really good!

That red ones nice but after previous dealings with toyota red i think i'll go with a colour less prone to fading matey!

What you driving now btw? Gto sold?
