2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

Review

First review was after owning for 5k miles. Current review is after two years. I can again confirm this was a smart purchase decision. Tire wear is always an issue with stock Bridgestone Potenza RE050's, but dry/wet grip is fanstastic. Also had the opportunity attent two open track days....well worth the money to get the experience. The S2000 handles fanstastically. Grin from ear to ear..can't wait to do it again. Criticisms: Rattling from convertible top latches; second gear grind early in life, seems to have gone away unless cold temps; passenger seatbelt rattles on door pannel/seat One last note: this car CAN be driven in the winter. Snow tires are a must and work great!

Favorite Features

Convertible top operation is very quick; clutch take up is linear, steering is very direct without slop, brakes are very robust, love the HID headlamps and LED taillights. Love sitting 4 inches off the ground. Suspension tuning is great, lacks any signifcant body roll.

Suggested Improvements

Interior rattles can annoy some, ingress/egress is difficult if you're tall (no prob for me!), buying tires gets expensive because of staggered F/R sizes, too much brake dust on front rotors (sprited driving and track days), definately needs a better stereo..more speakers, sub- woofer...something.
