Thread: New member looking for 3MPS

  1. Default New member looking for 3MPS

    Hey guys,

    My name's Tim and I'm 20 and from Newcastle,
    I'm currently looking to buy a gen 1
    3mps as my first turbo car after coming from Hondas yo.
    I have to say the community seems a lot more friendly here than over on ozhonda. So I'm keen to start posting more once I get a car.

    If anyone knows of any 3mps's for sale in nsw either private or ones you may have seen at a dealer let me know.
    I'm looking at spending around $17000
    So hopefully I can find a good one for that price.

    Welcome Plenty of MPS's for sale at the moment, you should be able to talk people down a bit because they aren't selling too fast...

    Tested any yet?

    Thanks for the kind welcomes guys,

    Yeah I test drove one a couple of days ago in Newcastle but it had a poor service history as well as a knocking kind of noise coming from the top of the engine (maybe the timing chain?)
    So I didn't end up going with that one.

    I liked how it drove though, very zippy and usable power especially compared to a Honda lol plus the interiors are very nice on them, that's one of the reasons I am looking for a mps instead of a wrx (which i first was looking for) as they have pretty poor interiors and the exterior styling is pretty ugly in my opinion.

    So I ended up buying a metro grey 2008 model sports pack from a dealer in Sydney.. It's such a clean and well maintained example!
    We will have to meet up one day man and go for a cruise together

    Enjoy, just make sure you get everything fix in first few month under warranty.
    When I test drove that car, before mine one came in. Got a report done on this one you purchase,
    needs front lower control arm bushes.
    Apart from that, great car.

    Thanks, I'm loving it so far!

    Just a quick question guys
    I've noticed that the power delivery isn't overly smooth especially before its on full boost... It's not very noticeable but I'm just wondering is this just how these cars are?

    By "not overly smooth" I mean that the car seems to hesitate slightly when coming on to boost
