Hey everyone. Love the idea of theses pocket rocket turbo gocart things. They sound great. I currently own.a dihatsu sirion. Great car but not too much fun. Have 2 keep it for the family. Finding a second car to have a bit of fun in and is economical is quite hard, with Irelands rip of tax system. (200€ less than 1.0 litre)
Anyway I know of someone selling a mira trxx. It looks alright but the common issues the gearbox is gone. I don't mind trying to source 1 because it's kinda going cheap. These kei cars are hard to come by in Ireland. Does any think I should hold out and get a fully working kei car in the UK? Am I just buying another man's problem. Forgot to mention the car is going for around €800. Might get it a bit cheaper if lucky.
Hello and welcome.
Unfortunately I don't know much about Miras but hopefully someone who does will pop along soon.
Hi there and welcome.
Sounds like a good price if the rest of the car is in good condition. A good gearbox specialist should be able to rebuild the gearbox if you can't get your hands on a 2nd hand one I'd have thought.
1stly hi and welcome to KKITP (^_^)
I'm unsure what the going rate is for € but as Andy said it shouldn't be too bad a price if the rest of the car is in good condition
Does the car still drive?
Is it a r4(4wd)?
If so I only have 1 more fully working spare gearbox left, and 1 noisy(but still works) box.
I may sell them, but unfortunately I don't know how much postage would be to Ireland.
Thanks for the response lads.
The car Is 100% other than the gearbox. Got a quote in Ireland to get it reconditioned and it was 900€ without looking at it. The price would rise depending on the damage. Way Too much money. Rip off Ireland again. Ha
The car is a 1998 mira trxx arvanzato 660cc turbo 4wd.
I'm not too sure what r4 means but hopefully the description will help. I would be interested in your spare working gearbox if it fits this car. I'm in the UK at least once a week. I drive back from Dover to holyhead in North Wales if this is on your route.
The gearbox in the car only selects 3rd 5th and reverse. Don't know anything about the transfer box or if they give trouble.
I look forward to hearing your response kktip.
Normally the avanzato are Trxx R or Trxx r4(denoting 4wd)
Just to double check it is a 4cyl engine?
I would be a detour off route for collecting but it's not too bad.
Search Horsham on satnav for rough idea on my location
When would you next be coming through uk?
