Even I want an ST. It's all the car I need rolled into one!

The ST is a blast to drive. My salesbroham has one. He tried to talk me into one of those or a mustang. But with 2 big bulky recaros it wasn't happening. I love my car though.

Dude, it's a spacious 4 door, and an SUV, and a manual with tuning turbo, and probably decent on gas.
The thing sounds like a MONSTER too.

Id say my buddies' ST gets about 23 mpg, but he has a flat foot. a big one. He also uses the car to go to different businesses for work. With LA traffic. its not bad at all.

I get pretty good gas mileage! I drive pretty spiritedly, plus with Chicago traffic.

I saw a white ST on the highway with red mudflaps that looked great. Really complemented the car well.

I wasn't planning on doing coilovers anytime soon, but a local member of my ST group was selling lightly used Bilstein B14's for a price I couldn't pass up. These only have 5k miles because he was scraping really bad pulling into work every day. His loss is my gain! I ordered front swaybar adj endlinks tonight. Once those arrive, I'll contact my guy about getting these installed. I also picked up used set of 25mm wheel spacers yesterday. I was running a 15/20 setup and switched it to 20/25 to sit more flush. My fenders are already rolled, so tires clear without any rubbing. I didn't take any pics of the spacers installed.

Yeah Tyler, when will you get some sort of a deal on quality coilovers you can't pass up for the S2000?!?! Maybe some H&R?

You see, even Jeremy knows what's up! I'm talking about lowering the S2000 in general.

I'm going to have some problems getting into my driveway once the coils are installed. The front lip just barely clears as it sits right now.
