Great fun those! I acquired one for 'er indoors about 4 years ago which also had handling issues due to kippered rear struts :roll: but once I changed them it had go-cart like cornering abilities :D How is life in NZ Mr xkjaguar?

I am probably getting a mk 2 MR2 in the next couple of weeks once i have managed to nobble my crapmobile enough so that the dealer cannot spot it is proper knacked at first glance. What do i need to look for on one of these? I think they have problems with the gaskets as a mate had one a few years ago and it went proper wrong.Any advice appreciated.
