Hi, new member from South Wales just saying hello.

Picked up my first roadster a fortnight ago, and despite it raining ever since, i’ve Been enjoying getting to know the little car.

It has left me pondering one question, “why has it taken me this long to purchase one of these little beauties!”

I’m enjoying reading the forum and am Looking forward for the weather to break so that I can remove the hard top, drop the roof and rack up some more miles ;D

Thanks, just a quick question, is it customary to wave / acknowledge other Roadster drivers if and when you see them on the road?

I remember back when I had my beetle, many years ago, that everyone use to wave, flash headlights at each other etc...

Just wanted to check whether it is expected behaviour for MR2 owners so I don’t like a madman waving at complete strangers! 🤣

Ok, I’ll keep an eye out for fellow MR2’s then, if anyone sees a silver mr2 in the South Wales with a grinning, waving madman behind the wheel, that’ll be me

Welcome along :-)

Anyone else think the hardtop is a PFL? There looks to be a shade difference.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Hopefully i’ve Lucked out on the Roadster I’ve picked up, she only has 65k on the clock, not bad for a 14 year old, full service history and looks to have been well looked after. Apart from 1 yellowed headlight, tiny bit of wear to the drivers leather seat and quite a few rattles that I need to sort, there’s nothing that needs doing to her, apart from some mods😜

You want mods, you have come to the right place!

Just leave your wallet with the modification monkeys by the front door! It’s theirs now!! ;-)

If the seat wear is on the backrest, there is an easy way to swap the drivers with the passengers.  It puts both of the edges that take wear into the centre so gives them another lease of life.

Lots of view on headlamps on the site for you to consider, from t cut to toothpaste!  Have a search....

As for rattles, they come with the territory.  Lots of badly fitting plastic in our cars.
