Default Born the same year as my S






Well, it's about the time gen Z'ers are getting their first cars, born the year 2000 I am no exception. The first time I learned about the s2k a few years ago, I knew it was the car for me and immediately became a fan. After about 6 months of looking, I have found the perfect S2k: MY00 silverstone, 39000 miles . Anyways the car is almost completely stock because it was owned by some rich wife for 15 years who barely drove it, then some elderly man who sold it to me because he's about to get a hip replacement. Attached are the pics (word of warning, the wheels were done by the wife because according to the guy I bought it from she "Likes shiny things". They are going to be the first things to go).

For the wheels, probably gonna go the rpf1 route. Also going to take care of the valve retainers and slap on some Dunlop direzzas (Let me know if you have found any tires to be better).

After that, I'm not sure where I'll go next. I want to replace the headlights with a more modern design but I'm not sure I want to go with the AP2 ones. Leave some suggestions on this and any other good 'bang for your buck' mods.

Good to finally be a part of the S community and nice to meet you guys

P.s, the ultimate goal is a street legal NA track build. I live near the Sonoma raceway and will be taking it there sometime in the future. Probably won't be doing anything crazy in the near future but I'm looking to keep the car for the rest of my life so plenty of time (and money) left to invest in it.

Believe it or not, $14,700. 2 owner, Clean title/carfax, 10 matching VIN tags, thumbs up from the mechanic and all. The guy is having a hip surgery this week and had to get rid of the car since he wouldn't be able to drive stick after the operation. Very lucky to have been in the right place at the right time

Considering the mileage, how did they mangle the cluster that bad?
