Great car, Just sold my 1990 MR2 Turbo after 23 years of owning it back in January.

I'm not expecting the GR Corolla Circuit Edition to be a massive "Upgrade" , its more of me now being able to buy a new car and also cut down from 2 cars to 1 car because the GR will "Do it all" with some back seats and room to put things.

I have to be honest I was going to get the new STi before Subaru took a dump on me in early February and back then I was really struggling to find a replacement for the MR2 anyway.

Why sell it? They are classics now so not keep it?

Time to move on the modern hot hatch with 4 doors and boot space finally out performs it so time to move on.

Subaru screwed me on the new STi but the GR Corolla CE is even better anyway.

It's pretty much all I wanted and out of the blue Toyota finally started making exciting cars again it only took 30 years.

I hear ya. I hope you got good money for it. I have a MKIV Supra and I just couldn't part with it yet. It was the pinnacle of Toyota and why we haven't seen another MR2 like the SW20 especially the Kouki version. It's good to see Toyota making fun cars again and the GRC is going to be a homerun.

Not sure what you consider is "Good Money" but there are not many cars you can sell after 23 years of ownership for the same price as you bought it for. Sure if I wanted to keep it another 10 years it may reach "Classic" cult status but I need the garage space and the beauty of a new car is you only need one car and don't need a "Backup" car to drive every time it needs to be fixed. Never owned a brand new car, its going to be bliss with only oil and filter changes and the likes of brake pads to work on. My days of crawling underneath a car and ripping shit apart are over, I want something with plenty of power, great handling straight out of the factory. There will be no need for me to modify this car at all.

Ah, I see. I see working on a car as mandatory for maintenance unless you’re leasing it.

Basically selling it for more then what you bought it for? On BaT, most were selling for the low 20’s but some gems sold for 49K like this example.

Different country different price. Nobody over here will pay that. We had thousands of them imported as used JDM cars and they have pretty much all been thrashed and trashed. Mine was pretty tidy but not showroom condition and got 7k for it.


Mine had 64k on it 23 years ago sold it with 234k on it and that's Kilometers so basically like that car but chose to drive it not leave it in a garage.

My bad, I just noticed that you’re not in the U.S.
