Welcome, you have come to the right place (and right time of year too).

Check out the buyers guide for lots of useful info.

Drive as many as you can and expect to need new tyres, suspension, brake overhaul unless there is proof this has recently been done.

I've added 2500 miles to the 62k miles 53 reg FL I bought 3 months ago and I don't doubt that the car would benefit from a refresh in all 3 of these areas.

However it is still both epic fun and feels very safe 99% of the time exactly as purchased (9 year old Bridgestones and I suspect 14 year old suspension).

The rare time it has shown its limitations are when trying to make swift progress on unfamiliar and badly surfaced roads when of course it is easier to get into trouble and refreshing the areas Topdownman mentions will do a better job of getting you out of it.

So, my point was that if you buy a decent example (and apply what used to be called a bit of common sense) you can safely enjoy the car from day one and work to address the areas mentioned over a suitable time frame.

Cheers to all for the warm welcome , starting to get a feel for what to look for , just waiting on the final bill for my Forester XT (head gaskets) before the search begins in earnest , wife wants a 2 seat convertible , it will primarily be her car and I think the MR2 is the pick of the bunch .
