    They are the one model in the US lineup i really wish we got here, particularly the turbo variant. They are reasonably priced, look good and go well. :dunno:

    after about a year of careful consideration, the solstice is far better looking than the sky.

    Just needs some new wheels. I bet the interior is built for big americans, unlike japanese cars tall people can't fit in.

    i'm 6'3' 175lbs.

    They are just not very big, i love s2000's, i have driven them in high levels of uncomfort, with my knees touching the wheel, but it is just unrealistic for me to buy one.
