Having owned an Accord 6 speed, I remember exactly how much room you had in the front bumper / headlight area - that's a pretty smart idea.

The S2000 has absolutely no room and moving the filter behind the radiator doesn't make sense.

I'd stick with an OEM box

^ Yeah looking at his photo I definitely see that now. But there's got to be non-CAI for the S2K right? I refuse to do the full CAI on my cars now because it's not worth the few extra HP for the risk of hydrolock, but the sound increase of a SRI is well worth it IMO.

Assuming you keep your underhood temps down, a SRI would be a good alternative for Mr. Penguin

The runoff from that large SW parking lot caused the whole thing.

Sounds like things worked out great for you though. Are you going to replace the stock intake with another aftermarket eventually? Maybe not a cold air though lol?

I don't even want to think about intakes right now I'm sure it'll happen eventually, but considering I'm very content with how the car performs, I would rather put those funds towards something else. That front lip looks pretty damn good

although he's always also bragging about how the week after you visit, he doesn't even need to waste any toilet paper cause nothing touches the edges on the way out.

I've realized that I have terrible luck when it comes to cars. This beauty happened while leaving work last Wednesday...





Thankfully, it was replaced yesterday. The old one was dirty anyway

Other than that, the car hasn't changed much. I gave it a wash yesterday and I'm approaching 100k miles already (~5k since purchase)

I have a chip in mine too.

Windshield is too steep.

How easy is it to find OEM glass for the S2000? Did you get aftermarket?

Safelite got me a replacement within 24 hours but it's not OEM.

Ha, I went through SafeLite too!

Cheap non-OEM windshields have waves if you look at it at a certain angle, but this glass looks great for the price.

Cost me around $240, ish.

I wanted OEM too...but after seeing how pitted my OEM glass was...(then when safelite was installing I find out it's not even the ORIGINAL OEM windshield which means all that pitting happened in a fraction of 12 years)...I opted to let them install the aftermarket.

In Florida, one windshield per year is covered, free of charge.

If I had pushed for OEM, there was a 3 day approval process turnaround and THEN I'd have had to come $300 out of pocket in addition. Yeah, no...I figured if I'm not happy, or I see waves with my polarized sunglasses I'd complain and escalate.

None of that happened though, the glass is pristine and perfect. Only defect was the tech didn't originally put enough glue on the mirrahhhhhh...so it fell on the 2nd day...stopped at location and in 5 minutes they bonded it with tons of glue.

Thanks J. I just need to call them up and get it done before she goes to sleep for the winter. I'm pretty sure that MN state law says that they have to use OE parts where possible but we'll see what happens.

You're welcome Sam...if it had cost me nothing, I probably would have pushed for it but the OEM glass is ridiculously priced, so I kinda don't blame them for wanting to give you an equivalent brand.

For what its worth, I've heard that Pilkington is an OEM brand for a bunch of different cars. I had one installed in a camry for $150.

The S2k will be hitting 100k tomorrow so I cleaned it up and took it out for some pictures. I took over 50 pictures and only kept these two I'm such a snob.





Since I haven't bought any parts yet, I guess I can talk about getting gas today Last tank was 27.9mpg, putting me at 27mpg since purchase.



Now that the wedding has passed, I would love to do a few things to the car, but I might just wait and see if Santa brings them for me

Dennis, hot climates get ass fucked in the miles per gallon. Ask me how I know.




Tyler, I know your mod schedule...but I highly recommend you think about this.
Those pictures are mad fyah...gorgeous...love...amazing.

Put the Tint and Lip on hold...and get these. If I were not so hellbent on getting coils (helped that I got my street performance coils for $700...)...I would have totally gone back with these springs and called it a day. The fenders can't take slammed and these springs gave the car the perfect DRIVEABLE stance IMO.

Evasive Motorsports | PH: 626.336.3400 Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm PST: Espelir Active Super Down Springs - Honda S2000 00+

Doesn't break the bank, either.
