meh the front bumper kills it... besides from the 50/50 color scheme. it is functionally sweet (aside from the overlayed bumper ), so i cannot deny the badass-ness.

The bumper is overlayed? If so, ew. If not, paint that **** red and enjoy the weight savings.

Right now though, it looks like you got in an accident and got a front clip from a junkyard.

Regardless, that's got to be one of the most fun cars on the site.

Maybe I am wrong.
so mods dont add up on the vic but they do on the s2k. that doesnt makes sense. if you read my post it says i know upgrades dont get added the the cars price but in reality if he spent $10k in parts and the car is wirth nine then he got raped on the trade in becasue he still owes anohter $8500 now. if he sold the car locally or parted it out and traded in stock he would have made out a lot better. i swear i already said this though. he bough an $18k car and they gave him bluebook for a stock car so his $10k invested is wasted. now do you see my point. i would have parted the car out at least the turbo stuff and saved myself another $4-5k

My only problem with the car is that it looks like the junker car you see driving around w/ the door or trunk or whatever from another car that they haven't painted. I would recommend doing a partial paint. Let some of the CF show through but have mostly paint.
Regardless of if you like that idea I'm happy for you moving up in the car world and extremely jealous.

tell me you don't actually think that looks good..... ?? is this a joke or did the OP seriously get an S2000 that looks like this..... That car is screaming rice. You're better off with the pink one with fuzzy seats from the 2nd FNF movie.

we're not hating. we're telling you it looks like crap that even the Fast and Furious would turn away.


this is what happens when the price of S2k's falls into the realm of younger drivers. You have NO IDEA of the capabilities of this car or what it can even do, or the kind of performance it offers. You have no idea.

The car looks like garbage, and I hope to god you do not sign up over at s2ki, we don't need that over there. Go back to waiting for tokyo drift to come out.

2 more quick comments..

#1- LOL @ the hood fitment, I've seen better fitment on a square peg into a round hole.

#2- Are you trying to keep mexicans out of your grille? It looks hideous

You are a complete idiot and I hope you know that. S2ks trannies are one of the best crafted, engineered and precisely shifting trannies in the world. Even M3, Ferrari, and Porsche owners praise the trannies of the s2k. If the car has one thing to be worshipped about besides engine and suspension, it's the tranny. Therefore, your statement of saying that the S2k tranny sucks has no validity whatsoever. The thing that breaks all the time isnt the tranny itself, but the rear differential. Even then, it's not weak, but people that purchase the S2k do not understand the dynamics of how the car works. Therefore, they like to put loads of stress on the diff at very low rpms without breaking the wheels loose on a car with only 160 lbs of torque. There are people that have launched the s2k thousands of times with no known problems. If you drive the car in a way it wasn't designed to be driven, then any car will experience this problem.

Now that's cleared, i think the car is screaming rice is is totally hideous. I'm sorry i'm bashing on this car but i am a brutally honest person. I also think the deal is a very big rip off. Look on autotrader and you'll find tons of 02+ S2ks with less than 30k miles for under 23ish.

I say sell the parts and buy some decent rims. Putthe stock parts back on.... that car has been ruined by bad taste. I would be embarrased to drive it unless it was strictly a track car.

What?!?! .......... I for one am not jealous of that car.... I am ashamed.


I have ABSOLUTLY NOTHING to be jealous of.....



Tacky is just tacky... and these guys, no matter what they drive, can recognize it. Don't try to justify it by telling everyone else they are just "jealous". Trust me, jaws have dropped and people have burped up stomach acid over the pix of this car.
