Recently bought an 01 Absolutely Red MK3 and would just like to introduce myself. Original owner, just over 74K miles and I could not be happier as the car is in solid condition.

I've had the MR2 on my mind since middle school when I first saw the Spyder in a Toyota showroom when my parents were looking for minivans. After years of saving and debating between the MK2 and MK3, this is the realization of that dream.

But, the little roadster is still an 11 year old dream and there's a bit of a metallic rattle anytime you start hitting the 2500-4000 rpm range on the throttle. Gonna check the heatshield first and also need to clear out the pre-cats.

Otherwise, it's fantastic. I'm in the Los Angeles area and I could not be happier to be an MK3 owner. I'm always down to meetup, cruise, and talk midship so just let me know!

to my best knowledge that should still be the stock antenna? nothing on the car has been modified
The stock antenna is a long wire whip RC toy looking thing that most people replace anyway.
