yeah, the thing about the MR2 is the total lack of storage space, its not something you can carry a lot of stuff with. other than that, i really like the car.

Yeah, the mr2 spyder is very small, and with that not a lot of space. Performance wise, it is in between the Celica GT and GTS. This is due to it having the GT engine (VVT-i) and being lighter then the GT as well.

i have one (well my dad grin)... and its definately not a daily driver... gets annoying aving to pop the Hood and shove stuff in where the spare tire is...

but RWD is awsome, and the convertable feeling is awsome too, plus there are way more mods for it and RWD can handle big HP numbers.

Its definately more fun to drive than my GT, but you cant fit freinds in it either.

basically you need another car along with an MR-S.

mr2's are harder to come by thumbsup

if you r a performance hardcore fan, then the MR2 is for you.

RWD>FWD
Mid-engine Rear Wheel drive layout is pretty much the best you can get in performance cars...look at the Modena 360s, enzos, lotus, nsx, the lambo, porsche (rear-engine rear wheel), etc...

most people said the MR2 is unsafe, but if you dont go near the car's limit, then it should be okay. Once you're able to learn the control and manner of the MRs, its deadly...

Get rid of a Toyota for a Hyundai?? Let's pretend this conversation never ever..ever..EVER took place. cry

Keep the Celica and mod it, or trade it for a used GTS.
