I really like the S2k, especially in silver w/red. I saw it at the auto show and it felt really nice albiet a bit cramped even for me. I would seriously consider it if it 1) had more torque (owning a RC-51 bike, I love gobs of torque over having to wring out a motor like an inline4) and 2) $tealers weren't ripping people off.
I passed by a Honda/Acura dealership yesterday where they had a Silver/Red on the podium, since it was on the Acura side I knew it was used and asked how much.
now get this... it had 20k miles on it.
Just plain silly.
till the M3 comes out.
My last car was a Honda S2000. I very fine car, and groundbreaking in some areas. However, I am passionate about BMW's, and ended up returning to the marque. I dumped the s2k for an E36 M3 a few weeks ago.
The honda folks are pretty cool, but then sometimes you get a jackass that thinks his Honda can run with the beast:
Must be nice to think that your car is invincible. I've tried to convince him, but to no avail. If you lurk over there, you'll notice that most are avid auto enthusiasts that will give a car its due.
