I'm not big on Hondas, but a 4 cyl. roadster that in n/a form can give a Mustang GT a run for it's money is pretty decent. Just the price isn't.

I have mixed feelings with the wing.. I'd rather have a little lip spoiler.
I don't know what it is but Honda guys get super defensive about the lack of torque on the f20

odd. i have the exact same combo. in black.

comparing a turbo'd miata vs a stock ap1 is retarded.

and used ap1s aren't expensive. dunno where you're shopping. new '07s can be had for $29k, not much more than similar vintaged miatas. build/finish, at least for my car, is at least 2x as nice as similar vintaged miatas.

Where have you seen any used NA or NB Miata for over $20k?

And for the $29k price tag (and '06s aren't new anymore,we're to '08 now, we just got the CR in at the Honda dealership I keep inventory at), I'd rather spend a few grand more and get a nice used '04 Z06 'Vette than an S2K.

well these days you can pick up a used S2k for 15k-18k in rather good shape...(thats california)since Mazdaspeed maitas are going for 15-16k round here its not a bad alternitive.. but **** the 15-18k range range is peppered with used "sports cars"....so yeah......anyone who buys new is crazy anyways

Is it wrong that I love the look of the hardtop on a car designed from the ground up to be a convertible?

Hardtops are best. Mine actually matches my car now, I just haven't had a chance to take a pic.

I took the softtop out, I hated the stupid thing.

bottom line is the s2000 was better with the 2.0 liter than the 2.4 in my opinion, it was a lot more rev-happy.
and yeah hardtop s2000's look almost as badass as hardtop mr2's
