Hi! I've been wanting an MR2 for years and when my wife said we need another car, I decided to get the most impractical winter car I could -- a 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder!
(Now, I just have to find another vehicle that I can use for wintery days :LOL: )
I love driving my MR2. It's pretty much stock as far as I can tell. I don't have any plans to change that except that I swapped out the audio deck already.
I didn't like the mounting/trim kit that I got with the new unit, so I designed my own.
I've already learned a lot from the forums in this site. I'm glad y'all are here!

Here are some pics. I also made a video about my audio deck trim design and included a link to it.

Better days!

I really like the stereo surround... a couple of things:
  • What does this switch do?
  • Why put the bluetooth mic in the center console?
  • Do your coins rattle?
  • Sell me your Kenwood.

Welcome! I pack my coins so tight in the ash tray that they can't rattle...but now even most meters stopped taking coins I suppose.

I like the adapter piece you made, although I'll admit the color us a bit out of place to me. Similar questions as above regarding the switch as well as if you mic actually picks up sound well in that location.

A few things to consider:
-Make sure your soft top drains are clean
-Change any fluids of unknown age (engine oil, trans, brake, coolant, etc)
-Gutting the precats or changing the exhaust manifold
-I can't see your headlights in your pic but often they are in need of a good polishing with the age of these cars.

Early-stage Sivart08 affliction. It is never known in advance whether this subsides at early stage or whether it goes to full-blown mania.
