I think it's one I was looking at before I bought mine. If it is it's missing some service history but was very clean. (Two years ago approx)

Love the ad, it states it's standard but has the wrong wheels fitted.

I though that only the import MRs have those seats?

thats the seats they all came with

IX MR embroidered was an option done by transcal @£2500 extra
Are you sure? they are exactly the same seats. One has Recaro and the other has IX MR.

Can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to pay 2.5k just for the lettering "IX MR"

Or does the option have the leather inserts?

Are you selling up the car you fought for from the garage? I assume because of its condition? Might be worth getting some work done to help sell? Could lose a bit otherwise.

Im happy to keep my car and fix it up, will still be under market value after i finish but i seen this and at that price i thought i might give it ago.

Dont get me wrong im happy with mine but the way the market is a mr is a good investment

Yes mate agreed. My only advice for what it's worth is just be careful not to jump out of the frying pan and in to the fire!

I've got MR brochure from when they were released, it was option and with hefty price tag, that was a beauty of mitsi marketing when they released the MR version.

Agree wheels are nasty but very cheap mr if you buy could always sell you a set of speed line turini
You both comment on it being cheap but is the 15k a starting bid with reserve not met? Could be a £25k reserve on it? I don't use eBay so could be wrong?

in essence you're correct but as its had no bids the chance of getting it at around the 15mark isnt unrealistic.

Evo 9 mr hks with 28000miles on the clock for around 15grand! Not a chance! I'll eat my words if I'm wrong but I don't believe I am. I reckon he's got at least 18k reserve on that. Might be worth mailing him asking a buy it now price?

On paper i get you it doesn't sound possible to pick one up that cheap. Maybe he doesnt understand how ebay/auctions work, i mean why put a reserve on and start it at 15k.
