S2K Your Life Away
By NC Raskal on
2005 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)
Have had a Toyota MR2 and a BMW Roadster. Got a great deal on a little red S2000 with only 900 miles on it. This car is a well-built, pure point-and-shoot driving experience. Remember it's a 4 cylinder and you'll understand why it seems short on low-end torque; but don't forget it likes to run on higher revs. It gets perky 4-6+K RPM range. Great short throws. Unlike the BMW, Honda dispenses with the heated seats and other perks - this S2K is a driver's car. Have fun. And S2K your life away!
Ease in dropping/raising the top. All the controls are easy for the driver to reach. Quality build - reliability.
Hard to figure where they'd put it, but a better location for the cup holder - it tends to interfere with my shifting, and tall drink bottles are difficult to keep steady in the holder.
