    The talking has stopped (ego's new car)

    Well after much talking, swaying this and that, adding the sums, thinking turbo or NA i settled on a Monte Carlo blue Honda S2000. She's done 127xxx km and is close to immaculate with one scratch behind the driver's door and another over the front left wheel arch and some wear on the driver's seat. It's pretty much stock just a K&N filter, AP2 glass window roof, an Alpine HU and speakers and a CF radio cover.

    I'm still adjusting to it, it's very loud with the roof up inside with mechanical noise but i have been driving a Lexus before which was library room silent and the prop shaft wasnt by your hip.

    How long will this last me? God only knows but i know i am enjoying this far more then any car i've owned before.

    Enough talk, PICS! It's a little dirty as it's going to rain here tonight/tomorrow so not much point.

    If the previous owner is telling the truth, he seemed honest enough, it was owned by an old guy before him as a weekend car and the previous owner owned it for 4 years during which it was garaged at night. Got full books through Honda apart from the last service, clutch has been changed already too. Anyway so far im loving it!

    Congrats again Tim. I love the look of the upgraded soft top.
    It's Tony!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Careful parking and stuff. Cara decevingly low. And take note, the honda book for your s2k recomends changing gears between 3.5 and 4k for fuel economy. Its hard to get use to letting the revs stay up!
