How do you like the pole position?
I've been wanting a reclinable bucket seat but starting to consider a fixed seat (a pole position) if I can get it positioned to fit my liking

Car looks great Fernando! Love the AP2 additions and I also like the rear AP1 bumper with AP2 tail lights. Interesting too about the switch to the Nardi wheel, I had one in a 240 I used to own and liked it as well, never felt one in an S2000 though or any aftermarket wheel for that matter.

Honestly, it's probably the best purchase that I've made for the car. I'm a big dude aka 6'1 and 210lbs. Before with the OEM seat I felt like I was sitting on the car rather than in it, with this seat it's perfect. I also have lower back problems from when I pulled my back in 2014 and this seat lets me go on longish (3 hour) drives with zero pain or fatigue. Positioning the seat is really simple as most people only use 1 of 2 settings.

Thanks man! Part of me wants to go wingless and get an AP2 rear bumper as well.

As for the Nardi I love it. I also have it coupled with a 2" spacer to bring the wheel super close to me as that's what I find most comfortable.

That's really good to hear since my driving position is little more laid back.
I'm close to your size (6 feet, 215 pounds) so this just made me feel a little better about considering one, thanks!

With winter winding down I'm putting the final touches on the car to get it ready for spring. Ordered 4 RE71R's which are now sitting pretty in the shop waiting for me to not be lazy and install them. I've been through 2 sets of Dunlop Z2's so I'm excited to see how these will differ. Even though I don't track the car every weekend or regularly like most on here who run these tires, I'm a firm believer that the S2000 can't have anything less than a high performance tire - none of this all-season Nankang garbage.

Working at Honda also has it's perk as I picked up a used AP2 centre console and radio door that were rather beaten up but with a few dollars I was able to purchase some some of the pieces I needed and basically turned my console into a brand new one. The radio door was perfect as-is so a quick clean up and it was good to go.

I also purchased a circuit hero teardrop shift knob as I've always loved balls (no homo) for knobs but I don't like how you're touching the shift boot, with the teardrop knob it's perfect. It also weights nearly 450 grams making shifts feel quite nice.
