    Hey all,

    I'm intrested in getting an S2000....I want a "fun" car to be able to take on some nice drives. I'm looking to spend around 22-25 or so and am hoping to get some advice. Is there any years that I should avoid? Should I be concerned about high miles?


    Thank all!

    22-25 will get you a low mileage AP1 or AP2.

    I would say avoid '00-'01 simply because the rear window is plastic. '02-'03 has the 9k RPM redline, '04+ has the 8000RPM redline.

    Drive both, you decide.

    As far as worry, I drove the absolute piss out of mine for 30k miles in one year, had not one problem.

    i prefer the look of the ap2 (which is what i own) - you can easily get your hands on an 04 or 05 for your price range

    drive both, decide if you like the suspension and motor on the ap1 or ap2 better

    Oh and PS, I liked the AP2 more because of the revised interior (2 cup holders) better stock head unit (allows me to use my SNHOND3 to hook up my Zen Vision M) and I like the look of the AP2 more. Glass rear window a big plus too.

    Ask me anything, I've been researching them a lot before buying it.
