    I looked too and even the unloved MR2's are selling for $10k-$15k! maybe that ugly boxster was a good deal
    i remember working on these when they were new, getting a manual car in with an automatic ECU (and vice versa) fresh off the boat. and swapping around all the trim pieces between new cars just so we could sell one
    interested to see how it turns out though, and what it's actually like to drive (and if the coolant stays in)

    more youtube videos pls
    yep the reputation is well deserved.

    Yeah ok

        Don't think I would want to own one though........

        Please carry in so I can relive memories of driving way to fast all over the north island of NZ
        Agree. I hired one for a long long weekend in the barossa and Adelaide Hills back in the day...

        Got the thing very sideways quite a few times, saw an indicated 200 km hr and can confirm there is enough room for activities with the roof down... 😉

            Hmm, I have a funny feeling I did some work on this one when I was the MG/Rover nutter at Canberra Star. We didn't have many MGs come through but I do remember having to refill the suspension on a green one, which had a similar dent on the LHF guard.
            Sadly due to mental health reason* I won't be able to help you work on it beyond towing it away.


            *Due to my insanity I'd probably want to buy one.

              Are these the ones where the head bolts also hold the crank in??

                They’re all fucking green

                Not sure on the head bolt situation and I’m in no way considering finding out.

                  Yes.

                  I know of someone who found out the hard way.

                    Head bolts are also made out of plastic. Nice

                    You have some problems you need to work out with yourself Jim.

                      It’s still an economic exercise. Even as a broken parts car it’s worth double what I have or will spend on it. If I get to drive it and have some fun before that happens then all good.

                        I wonder if a Honda or Toyota engine would be a realatively easy swap?
                        Apparently converting these to coil overs isn't considered a modification, rather it's a service repair.

                          IMHO

                          After watching the video and reading everyone's comments, that is where I would be.

                          Well, maybe not..

                          OK, stick with the current thing, band aid and move it on?

                            I recon a Honda, Toyota or VAG 2.0 turbo are all options - for someone (not me)

                              It's the head locating dowels that are made of plastic.

                              As long as you don't get the head or block above room temperature they should last for the best part of 10 years. How old did you say this one was?

                                I got a little bit more done.
                                it’s parked up until I clear out another project.
