Finally replaced my car... no more walking everywhere!

Sold my old car to Metrolike. Been without one for a while now.

I bought it 2 weeks ago from an individual in Huntsville, AL, but it didn't arrive until today. Couldn't go without a car any longer, and just really couldn't find anything that really resonated with me for the right price. Couldn't get an E55 AMG with all the options that I wanted for a reasonable price. They were either ridiculously high mileage, frame damaged cars, or bare bones models without Navi and heated seats like I wanted. The ones with all the options and decent mileage were all really overpriced. Same with an M5.

So, I settled for an S2000. Not my first choice, but I dig it. It's a 2004, 59,488 miles. Paid $14k. It needs some paint work, but mechanically, it's great. Same with the interior.

I'll drive it like this for a while, and then when I replace the clutch, I'm going to throw on a supercharger.

When it was delivered this morning, I immediately regretted the purchase. It looked HORRIBLE. But, mainly it was just dirty. Upon closer inspection, it just needs a full detail with a clay bar and polish, which is scheduled for Sunday. They're going to pull the seats and steam the carpets for me, and buff up everything. Should look like a brand new car, for the most part.

I'm a little upset with the dealership that did the PPI. They said there was nothing wrong with the paint... but clearly, there is. There's a significant scratch on the front bumper that will HAVE to be repainted. There's also a significant door ding on the driver's side door. Also some minor door dings on the driver quarterpanel, but they can be taken out with paintless dent removal.

The hood has rock chips ALL OVER the place. It needs to be repainted. But, I think I'm going to slap on a CF hood, because it's about the same price.

All the other scratches should buff out.

On to the pics.










Here's where it needs some work: Bad touch-up job and a significant door ding.


Scratch that should definitely buff out.


I was shocked at how clean it was under the hood, given the state in which it arrived.

Good choice for reliability, S2000's are one of the few (maybe the only?) Sports car that gets a 5 star reliability rating.

Thanks.

My only complaint is that the flywheel is REALLY heavy. Definitely replacing that bad boy when I get a new clutch. And it is pretty lifeless without VTEC. Much worse than the RSX that I had.

Ah, that's good. I got to **** around with a Honda S2000 while I was waiting for my timing belt to get replaced at Lee's Summit Honda.

I'm not sure how it is with the S2000 motors, but if it has a belt instead of a chain start putting some money back to get it changed. Shit is expensive.
