    Fun car, my buddy had one for awhile. The lack of tourque turns me off to them though, when it's not in VTEC it is a total turd.

    Great pictures...it's the exact same as mine (either 02 or 03 with the chrome rear lights). Congrats on the rim purchase as well...not put a X-Brace on that thing, AUT Plate, and nice single exhaust (I have a T1-R w/ Test Pipe).

    $17,000

    And I'm not too worried about running stock struts at first. Im only getting the eibach's to reduce wheel gap, and I'll take it to get it 4 wheel aligned to the UK specs... offsets on the wheels are fine, so i shouldn't have any problem rubbing.

    do you like the car? is it fast? is the torque too low? is it true that the ride is harsh & road noise is a bit high?

    whoa there buddy, 9348723194871239847 questions :rofl:

    Do I like the car?: I fucking LOVE it. I would sex every inch if my massivley huge cock could fit.

    Is it fast?: 14.2 1/4 mile and about 5.4 0-60... it aint bad... its no super car, but IMO, its the all around ability and feel of the car that makes it a pleasure to drive... not just straight like speed.

    Is the torque too low?: That depends. Daily driving I usually shift at about 4,500 rpm... the gears are pretty short, so you end up revving it a bit to get going, but that's 1/2 the fun :) Gas mileage aint bad either... as long as you can stay out of vtec for a bit ;)

    Road noise and ride?: what are these? I didn't concern myself with "noise" and "harsh ride" when i got the car. if you want a comfy ride, get a caddy... wanna hug the corners and fling a car around like a go-kart with a perma-smile on your face the whole time, who cares if theres road noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    edit: but the soft top's wind noise on the highway DOES suck :o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o

    sorry the the million questions. i'm looking to get a sporty car and my choices are limited....2 4door boyracer with body kits. half an egg on wheels that's slower than its predecessor 350z. and an s2k that you can be mistaken to be gay with a male passenger...






    so the s2k win by default for sporty & rwd :/

    Sporty and RWD opens things up to a LOT of cars, many of which are faster and more fun than the S2K. You may want to narrow down your parameters a bit.

    well, i don't really care about whether it's a domestic or not as long as it looks good & perform well and the deal killer...a decent interior & doesn't weight 4000lbs.
