I got ones off eBay that were black. All they said were Bob Long Intimidator ball detetn 3 piece kit. Are these the right ones for the MR2 ?

yes they are, i have the timmys also. they are all black from what i have, and just so you know, they have to kinda be crammed in the hole to get the detent in. just makin sure you dont freak out like others do because of size

the different colors are probably just different levels of hardness

yeah I got the 2 each of red,black,blue. Does it matter which to use? or is it just for the person's personal look?

yea the timmy detents are a little bigger, you kind of have to force them in there, but once you get that done, they work pretty good

The red ones are the hardest but good luck trying to force the red ones into that hole. I simply got a knife and shaved a little around the edges and bam, it fit perfectly.

the color of the detent definitely has to do with the hardness of the material used. Kingman tried some yellow detents when the MR2 first came out. Black seems to be a bit more reliable.
