I bought a 2005 S-2000 a few weeks ago.
I keep hearing about the "middle age crisis" and the tendency men have to drop money on garish toys.
My buddies got Harleys.
I got smart.
Radio was OK, but I prefer the music generated by the engine.
I will never sell.
It makes a Vette feel like a bucket of bolts.
I just drove in from Austin a few days ago.
The only problem was a slight sunburn and my face hurt.
Constant grinning like a loon makes that happen.
The rear end kicks out a little when you goose it but straightens up in a hurry.
She is very responsive and wants to play.
She emits a high pitched moan @ 6700 RPM.
Get one and grin.
I purchased my 2005 in February of 2006 with 11 miles on him.
I ride a Suzuki sport bike, so I have a need for speed.
I was flying down the highway with the salesman, & he told me I was only in 5th gear.
This car is fabulous & I will never sell him.
If you love speed, love looking great topless (top down, that is), this is the car you need.
The most fun you can have on 4 wheels.
Take off speed, smooth handling, the soun d of the engine....oooohhh, be still my heart!
Material that the top is made with.
Tends to wear on pressure points.
I bought the car from a private seller with 20K mileage. The car is a blast to drive. I smile almost every time I drive it. It's like a Honda Civic below 6400 rpm and then feels like a racecar from 6500 up to 8400 rpm red-line. It has surprising torque at lower speeds and the handling feels race car quick. The convertible top lowers in 8 seconds ( I lowered on the freeway when we were stopped for a moment and didn't miss a beat). Owning and using a convertible is an experience everyone should try. I like motorcycles and this car feels the closest to a high performance motorcycle with the breeze going through your hair. So far, Honda reliability is just that, reliable. Oil changes and tires.
Acceleration and engine sound when doing it. Superfast convertible top. Honda reliability. The car is a Boxster beater and handles as well.
Radio just ok. Accessory power needs to be anchored better.
I have owned this car for two months. I initially purchased because it was such a good deal. While this was on my radar, I thought it would be too hard and uncomfortable for my use on long drives. I have been very surprised. I am 6 ft and the car is very roomy, it has a nice ride that is not jarring at all and the seats are fantastic! I have done 6-7 hours of driving in a day twice with no discomfort at all. The engine note sounds great as well, very entertaining. You will hear the engine roaring so don't buy if you are looking for Lexus like quietness. Overall,very pleased at the two month mark.
Go-kart like handling, hi revving engine, surprising comfort, and the kick of speed above 6K RPM. Also, the silver I have looks good.
More storage space on the inside would be nice. Can't think of much else.
