I have a friend who wants to buy a MR2 of this type and there is a car he's found that is selling for $7k. Body looks good, mechanically sound, mostly stock, it is a desert car so the paint is faded and interior is kind of not so hot. However this seems like an outrageous price to me because I don't think i've ever seen one for over $5k in good condition. Am I wrong? I just want to steer him in the right direction.
Owner says the car has ground control coilovers, newish bushings, and sway bars but the engine is stock. I suspect he autocrosses it with these mods. Has stock wheels and all season tires so he probably had an alternate set of wheels he sold separate.
