    Well a few weeks before the meet at Santa pod (which a few of us attended) in april I wrote my car off, and managed to get a new one and fit the car pc in time (in a kind of ghetto way, at least)

    What car you getting?

    MR2s are pretty damn reliable (so are supras) - though there are a few knackered turbos around for obvious reasons. Don't know where you heard anything bad about reliability, it's more making sure you haven't bought one that's been bent round a lamppost. Just a bit small inside.

    Seat? Bit of a step down from a BMW mini isn't it?

    well i heard from a few people thta they are bags of fun, but often have problems, which id expect from a car of that age i guess. as for the mr2 turbos i driven my mates, and it was fun, but since then its had all sorts of problems, ended up with new clutch, gearbox, turbo and an engine rebuild i think. heh kinda puts me off since my last year with the mini didnt cost me anything bar insurance, (free servicing, high resale).


    the seat leon cupra R is a hell of a car, i test drove one recently, 1.8 turbo, id say with 1.5k under the bonnet youd be in the reigon of 300+bhp they drive real nice, and have most of the extras in for the base price of 15k (i think its 15 anyways), compared to the likes of a civic type R which is a similar price, it has way more stuff in its spec, although its slightly slower, also feels a lot higher quality than the civic (+i dont like the civic incase you hadnt guessed hehe)
