hey guys, im new here..
im more of a supra guy, i was suppost to purchase a MKIV Twin Turbo 6 speed not too long ago.. but got in a bit of a problem, and now im shot on money.. having enough only for my second favorite car (mr2 turbo) :D

ive heard that the best mr2's are after 93' cuz they changed around some things.. better turbo, no ac problems.. better suspension... and some other neat things

but the thing is that there is only 1, 94' mr2 turbo!! in my city, the car is in pretty good shape, but the kms are 200100... :S is that too much for a mr2???

pleaseeeee help.. this is a really nice car.. for a good price.. but im afraid to purchase something that will die :(

125 thousand miles on a '94 isn't bad. That's less than 8 thousand miles per year.

The 93+ MR2s are slightly better but I certainly wouldn't focus just on them. There will be many, many more '91 models and with the money you save buying one, you could upgrade it to '94 spec.

94's are rarer and worth more money. I would go with that. 3SGTE's and 5SFE's are bullitproof anyway.

At that mileage, if the engine is healthy, the biggest concern is the turbo. Most are not shut down properly with a cool down period, making the seals a concern.
Other than that, everything stated above is on target.
