I've been considering having an S2000 for next spring/summer and see how it goes and have some generic questions. I'd appreciate 'mature' answers as oppose to ones that I've seen on other forums. So here goes....
If an S2000 is driven sensibly and around 65mph on motorways what MPG can I get?
What are the service intervals and how much are parts - can this be done on your own (I.e. I've only ever serviced my cars never paid someone else to do it)?
Was looking at getting one with a hardtop - are these easy enough to fit?
How big is the fuel tank?
I've heard the earlier models (pre 2002) are cheaper on the old road tax - is this true?
Can you get them with cruise control?
Thanks you peeps in advance.
I'm not sure I belive this, but...
If you need to worry about MPG forget it.
Service 9K or every year, parts fecking expensive IT'S A SPORTS CAR!
Hard top easy to fit if you've been to Ikea.
Fule tank? bigger than your wallet
You forgot to ask about insurence.......ho ho ho!
And a new owner in the colder months, considering your past cars, you will need to factor in funeral expenses.
You said you don't want silly replies, this isn't one.
