    Well thats it, the LCR has now gone! :cry:

    The buyer picked it up this morning. Thanks to you all for the brilliant help, it's much appreciated. Keep up the good work!

    As I no longer need them, I also have a cd multichanger and a VAG Com cable up on ebay at the moment, if anyones interested.

    Thanks again

    Ian.

    LCR to MR2 must have been quite a change! What inspired you to make that swap?

    Enjoy it though mate. And just remember, when you start to miss the LCR power, there is a company called C2Power that make turbo kits for the MR2 ;)

    Thanks Rob. I needed to save some money, so unfortunately the Leon had to go. I've owned the MR2 since September and I can honestly say it's one of the most fun cars I've ever owned, and I've owned some fun cars!

    It does lack power though and the turbo kits or supercharge kits do look tempting, but cost over 4K!!! So it's not going to happen in the near future i'm afraid.

    Dont mean any offence in the slightest mate, but i prefer the Cupra R to the MR2, but as you said above money is a deciding factor in lots of things eh?

    I know what you mean, but the LCR wasn't sold because I didn't think it was fun, it was sold to finance a wedding :doh: .

    Now that I've owned both, the MR2 is definately more fun. The LCR is faster, more practical, more desirable, more comfortable .... in fact more of most things. But the MR2 is just a lot of fun. Light, mid engined, very taught, very direct steering and on top of all that, some topless action when the suns out. Speed isn't really an issue, because it feels like your doing a million miles an hour when your only doing 30.

    Would I have the LCR back if I could afford it? in an instant! would I keep the MR2 for weekend fun? without a shadow of a doubt!

    Nice quick review. Glad your happy with it. Came across an MR2 on the way to work yesterday morning. It is certainly quick of the line ;)

    How much are you after for the multi changer? Had a look on ebay but couldn't find it...

    tbh I'd rather put the wedding off and save the extra cash than sell any of my cars - she's special but not that much :lol:

    Totally. Hopefully i'll feel different after i've taken the new one for a drive. The brakes are a bit naff compared to the R so i'll have to do something about that.

    I seem to have a thing for black/red combos on cars, last 4 i think.
