    No problem Mike, here are a few of both corners of the boot and both bottom b pillars.
    Annoyingly the original owner of mine had an alarm fitted a drilled a whole at the left of the boot for a sensor
    Cheers

    Other things spotted in the ad https://www.rossharveyltd.co.uk/cars...1.62dr/413895/
    Looks like a lot more rust at the back of the bootlid (top left when open).
    I don't believe the wheels were ever diamond cut on standard cars, just painted with a darker grey colour in the teardrops like this https://picclick.co.uk/Toyota-Mr2-Mk...508390567.html
    The rear mudflaps should have the raised "MR2" text in silver colour. Looks like they were re-painted at the same time as the bumpers as the white looks a bit different.
    Cheers

    Thanks Rich.
    Looks like it's hiding a few things from the past. MOT history also mentions corrosion on rear suspension upright mounts and the car has only covered about 600 miles in the last 5 years so your theory about being standing outside all seems to add up.
    Probably one to steer clear of, especially at that money.
    Cheers, Mike

    It is amazingly low mileage over the last 10 years, around 1,000 miles in that time! Crazy. Well worth looking at if the price was much lower, so no harm in calling them and asking for their "real" price

    i would say its worth about half that price
    Rust on the b-pillars are common and often a sign of being stood.
    If its coming through there then there is a good chance that the scuttle and a-posts will also be showing signs from being left outside.
    Nice low mileage but it has rust so there will always be more than you can see.
    Yes i talk to myself, sometimes i need a professional opinion

    Mike this one "sold" on ebay but the winning bidder didn't pay/collect. No connection with me etc, I just say it on the MR2 facebook group, that would be worth you joining.

    Hi Mike. I had my car for sale no so long ago. I wanted to sell before I moved overseas. I took it off the market as I moved overseas and covid effected the sale of the car. i've sent you a PM.

    hi Mike, how is the search going? I saw a few people send you PMs on facebook but no idea what cars they have. interesting to see a few low mileage examples on that group.

    This one popped up on the OC classifieds the other day, bit pricey in my opinion, but it doesn't really matter what I think, I'm not buying

    Black is not a colour ! .... Its the absence of colour

    Agree Jimi, states fastidious owner, close look at the engine bay says it all, missing strut cover n/s rubber with rust, that white grease sprayed over the place and the general cosmetics says a lot, not fastidious at all, great looking motor though interior looks superb, I would have thought the owner would have had the engine detailed for that money.
    Still well worth a view
