Some people rather do all the mods themselves, not just enjoy a car they haven't help build. Because at the end it makes it all worthwhile. But like you say that's just you.LowLife said:i agree that you can get more for a stock car, but if it was me, i would rather get a car with lots of mods for the same price as a stock car.

yea but no. i'm 16 and saved up money for a couple of years just for my car and for college. my parents did not put one cent forth for my car and any related car things. thats pretty sh---y of you to say that man. also i have been a car person since birth and did NOT like this car from seeing it in a mag i like it because it is different, handles well, fun to drive, not because i saw a modded out one in a mag. but i do agree most parents do buy there kids cars. but not all. but hea whatever
also when looking for a mr2 try to stay away from ones that have mods, usually they have been pushed. try to get one off and older man/woman. who has records and is responsible.
I agree with you. I think most of the mr2's on this board sell for way to much...IMO mr2's are awesome, but not as cool and godly as some of the people like to think they are...id just the same like to own another dsm, z32tt or _____, even a honda. Especially now when it costs just as much to make a mr2 as fast as any other n/a import.GippMR2 said:I'm gonna post this yet again. No matter how much the car is worth to you, that is not necessarily how much it is worth in the real world. Face it, this year the newest MK2s are 10 years old. A large portion of car buyers wont even look at cars that old, let alone consider purchasing them. Alot of MR2 owners get what they're asking because either A) Kids with more money than they should have (read: mommy and daddy's money) see the car in a magazine or on the streets and decide thats the car that they have to have and buy it, or B) They see the car in a magazine or on the streets when theyre younger but they can't afford it at the time and vow to own one some day when they can. In any case, both are blinded by something that causes them not to consider exactly how much theyre dropping on an older high mileage car. Compound this with the fact that a few people are actually moving them at these inflated prices and suddenly everyone thinks that they can ask that much.
This is why I will never buy a MK2 from someone on this board.
