Thread: Anyone own a MR2 F355

    Anyone own a MR2 F355

    Just a few question about the conversion. I was thinking about a Fiero 308/328 but I do own a MR2 and wanted to know if it's worth doing the conversion.
    Noticed that Extreme makes a kit and MR2Kits does too. Is one better then the other?

    in a way I owned an extreme 355, based on the t-top MR2. It's not the 99% replica that the extreme 360 or 430 is, but it is a great looking car without much body work (compared to other builds). There was a builder/distributor for extreme's 355 in the US some years back so there must be other 355s around. I always liked them, even with the MR2 interior (re-upholstered in a two tone beige/black looks fantastic), and the GTS version looks the best (my opinion).

    Best for you is to go to the extreme owners club website, lots of 355 owners there

    my 355 only came to a certain stage before I decided to buy a Mercedes ;-) but this is how I wanted it to look like (this is an extreme)

    Ya, it looks awesome. So you bought an Extreme kit but sold it before it was finished? The guy who purchase it - did he finish it?
    The Extreme kit is around 8K Canadian and that's just for the panels. Starting one from scratch I imagine would be fairly costly.

    Are you in Canada? If so they have a contact there. My car was actually in England, it was a lhd MR2 I shipped to them. It has since been sold

    Hey baggs,
    I have built five Ferrari replicas two of them 355s I did a lot of research on the 355 kits and the Extreme was in my opinion the best by far. If you ever decide to go for a 360 OR 430 I think DNA is the best kit out there.
    you can see my builds at www.355madman.piczo.com
