True that, man! And yes, I agree...because Pembroke Pines has some less than choice areas too.

Plus, ADT install, glock 19, 2 big dogs and 1 angry owner (Betty, not me).

Funny, over on the S forums most of the people either HAVE TSX or TL or want one as their daily.

LMAO, yeah, that's the landlord's beater...his other car is a brand new Infiniti QX80!

Yep, hot tub, baby...6 person with jets and LED lighting. Should be fun. Meko can stay if he cuts the grass and keeps the cars clean and talks a lot. Ironically, he writes as if he'd talk a lot but in person, Mehmet is fkn quiet as hell. Maybe it's cause he couldn't out talk me.

Wow nice pickup on the S2K! Sebring Silver is clean! IMO you have the perfect DD / Weekend Toy setup on your driveway. Nice crib too btw! Florida is niiice.

I've been reading S2Ki for like the past year, really want an S2K within the next year or two but I have to get to 'that point' with my TL first. I actually had my TL up for sale about a month ago, someone came and offered me a trade for his modded AP1 Silver on Black / Red interior, I was so close to pulling the trigger but when I found out it was a salvaged title I had to decline.. hard to find a clean one. A part of me wishes I said F it and went through with the trade.

How's the torque feel in comparison to your TL, yours is 6MT right? IMO OEM hardtop is the way to go on this car. Congrats on the pickup.

Havent been on this forum for a long time, but I remember I sold my TL for an S2K, now I have a 3.8 Genesis Coupe. If you have that as a weekend driver, then you have the best of both worlds! Nice find! OEM hardtop and all!

Your nuts, man.
You're nuts, man.

LMAO, honestly, I'm glad you figured out keeping her, I know you love that car. Thanks, man...yeah, the vtec can't touch you, but it is a blast to drive.

It's funny because I've been having buyer's remorse here and there, but that's because I'm moving and car modding is taking a backseat, which includes reinstalling the OEM soft top...which would allow me to constantly enjoy the S2000 the way it's intended.

About a clean one, it's REALLY funny you ask. So...I realized that the carfax that the person I bought from provided me was the one he got when HE bought the car. He had told me about repainting the front bumper due to rock chips...what he didn't tell me was that he put in a hit and run claim with his insurance to have them pay for it...he was REALLY anal about the car so he had the fenders, front bumper and hood repainted. Soooo...when my buddy that works at a dealership gave me the current CarFax, it showed "accident". I knew it didn't make sense because the original vin number tags are on all the front components which, obviously, wouldn't be the case if there were a collision. Sooo...at the end of the day, I made out okay, but even then, there's always some shady sh*t to deal with. I personally believe in giving people 100% disclosure and let THEM decide if that's okay with them.

About the torque, well...no, not as much torque as my 6MT TL BUT, it's also 1000 pounds lighter so it FEELS like there's enough. On the flip side, when I get to the upper RPM's in the TL now...I feel like WHERE THE FK IS MY VTEC!?
