Well, since I've been working at Honda lately my eye has been
cought by a Berlina Black S2000. Damn those cars are sexy!

So, should I do it? Trade my 02 stick MSM for a Honda S2000? Has
anyone had any experience with these cars? Is this a good plan?

(Ofcourse if I got the Honda, I'd get a winter beater also)

if you'd have a beater, then i dont see why not. prepare for no torque.

A co-worker had one and just sold it because it had to sit in the garage all winter. You will die and kill many others if you try and drive it in the winter / snow.

He loved it, but couldn't justify the cost of that car and another for winter. He bought a modified WRX. Now he thinks he is too old for a car with a carbon fiber wing and bling wheels, so he wants to sell it and get a used S4 (too funny)...

Anyway, get it if you like it and plan on having another car for the snow. I'd be jealous...

S2000 was a sick ride, my step brother had a wrecked one shipped in, actually, two of them...one for parts...and rebuilt the car. Damn sexy. Damn Small too. I didn't fit in the passenger seat. Felt like a mini on the inside.

Trade the IS?!?!?! ouuuu, I love our car...

It was only a brain fart. If I get the opportunity to drive an S2K for
a few days that will help me decide. The only problem with the
S2000 is that it's a bare-bones sports car, I like being pampered
by my IS.

Thats true but you have to decide what you want. S2K is very fun on the open road, but definitely not in stop and go traffic..

I was sooo close twice now to buying an s2k, amazing cars no doubt about it but...They lack alot compared to the IS. Stereo sucks, no amninities and luxurys, but if you can afford another car also then i say get it. If i had the money to own 2 cars for myself then the second one would be an s2k for sure!! You gotta love that gearbox, its pure sex :cloud9:

Well, it was all a pipe dream... I drove one for the weekend in early
September. I loved the fact that it's a convertible and a VERY
CAPABLE SPORTS CAR!!! So twitchy yet balanced and solid...loved it.


However; it just doesn't fit my needs... I'm going to rock the IS for
a few years and then maybe ponder the trade all over again.

Strange...I had the same thought last year. Needless to say, I kept the IS300.
