Review Everyone in Missouri wanted $5K over sticker, but Vern Edie Honda in Sioux Falls sold me a nice grey with red interior S2000 brand new and trained it down to Kansas City. Now 17 years later I have 29,000 miles on it and the value is going over the price I paid for it. Granted I drive it for fun, pleasure and it sits in a temperature controlled garage. As I hit my 60's I will say by bones are as forgiving as they were in my 40's, but I am so glad I didn't choose the Porsche Boxster or Audi TT, both considerations at the time. Went for the true sportscare, basic and made for one that loves driving. Strange that those cars are worth about $5-8K now. Repairs, never had one yet, just change the oil every year, scheduled maintenance (time not mileage) put some Stabil fuel additive and a battery trickler and I am all set. Have a few fancy Mugen Carbon fiber tops I have added (they have been about half price the last 5 years since many or gone), gives the vehicle a nice coupe look, the other a fast back that is really an eye catcher. It's a hobby, not a car for use and it's a lot of fun. Had to switch to Haggerty special insurance for $30K. The stick is not one to train someone to drive stick shift, failed with two daughters (maybe the teacher). A great stress reliever to take out on the backroads and rare enough many people ask me "what is it", especially with one of the Mugen tops on.
