I've taken my Honda S2000 to Laguna Seca twice already, and the car begs to be driven hard. I haven't had one problem with the car, just simple fluid changes here and there and it's good to go. The car handles like a go-kart, and the engine is a gem. For the money, I don't believe I could have purchased a better car in terms of fun factor. The ride can get a bit on the harsh side, but that's mostly on pretty beat up roads. With a good driver, you can pass up plenty of cars on the racetrack that costs much more, or has more power due to it's good handling and balance. Putting the top down on a whim is always fun. And last but not least, the gearbox is plain perfection, very crisp throws.
