I dunno, I think I get tired of everything. I'm selling my house too. Completely tired of it. I think I have severe ADD.

List of cars I've owned since 1991:
90 toyota camry
89 toyota corrolla sr5 coupe
03 ford probe gt
96 bmw z3
1998 mistubishi eclipse GST
1999 Chevy Tahoe sport
2001 Acura CL Type S
2003 350z
1999 Volvo s80
2004 toyota 4runner
2007 bmw 335i

see the problem here? lol

I'm the same way, since 1998 I've bought 6 new vehicles. I'm hoping that due to me not driving much and the S2000 being an awful lot of fun that I may actually keep it for a while.

Here's mine w/ my winter wheels about a month ago.





Great car. The only problem with this sucker is the oil consumption..which seems to affect mostly the AP1s. Enjoy your Suzuka Sellout.

Im just so use to leather knobs.
Yessir, that's the voodoo knob. I like it more than stock - the sphere shape feels perfect in my hand!

Yah...I missed Homecoming cause I work on Saturdays...

...did you clearcoat the signature? Has it faded or began to wear away?

Never realized there were many owners on this forum...nice. Here's my S2K since it seems people are tossing them up. Its all stock, but I think one of the best combos: GPW w/ Black/Red interior. Thing was pain to find...the first one I found had a spoiler, lip, and strakes. I said no...and almost gave into a LBP, but glad I didn't cause a couple days later a plain GPW showed up.




My sig on s2ki lol

GPW w/ black-red is surely one of the best combos for the S... especially for AP2 IMO! Great find...

Hopefully I'll eventually get around to swapping all the interior pieces for black-red interior too

I clearcoated the spark plug cover before installing it back in the engine bay. I haven't done the radio cover yet though - good call. I think if anything, that's the piece that gets more wear & tear from all the opening/closing everyday. I do try to push the cover from the sides haha that signature is priceless!

Depends on what year. 06+ S2000's have drive by wire, so that has to be taken into account.
