Introducing #428
 
Hey everybody- finally back in the S2k world. Found an off-the-market ABP (non-delete) up in Washington DC and flew from Texas to pick it up Monday. Made it back a couple days ago. Here are some pics from the trip home down the blue ridge parkway and tail of the dragon. In love with the car wish I would have grabbed one sooner​​​​​​​

Welcome and congrats. I follow the previous owner on IG. I know he was really bummed to sell the car, but was happy that he found an enthusiast to sell to.

Congrats, How did you find this? Autotrader? I've been trying to find one on the east coast.

thanks- was just put in touch with someone by someone who knew they were selling. Got lucky for sure. Are you looking for a specific color?

I haven't owned a lot of cars but I have driven a lot lately and it makes me love my s2k even more. My daily is a S3 haha.

I'm looking for blue with higher miles to help with cost.

How would you compare your CR to your AP1?

How do you like the S3? I sold mine after like 3 months. Just didnt resonate well with me I guess. I wish I had gotten a mk7 golf R and saved the 10k and may have felt better about it lol.

I dont miss the extra 1k rpm like I thought I would. I love the added refinements of the interior and hardtop and look of the CR compared to my old AP1. The car seems a little more planted. Lift off oversteer is a real thing in my AP2, I dont fault the car for that though- the previous owner up north had some Toyo All seasons on it that I am wearing down and then will put some more appropriate tires on and see how it is. But completely in love with the car overall. The GTR was a sick car but there were just so many things about the S2000 that I still missed.

Hmmm. The region is correct- the carfax shows this car was first sold in NY and then sold to the second owner ( the person I bought it from) from Heritage Honda in Parkville, MD

I love my S3. It's fun, sporty, and practical. I also wanted a car that was not too fun or engaging to drive because I did not want it to compete with my S2k. I think turbo awd is a good compliment to the S2k.

Torkey 11-01-2018 08:44 AM

completely agree. When I had the S3, I was trying to use it as both..as the one and only car because I thought I would try and be sensible (LOL) and it wasnt cutting it. Put paired with the S2k, I would love to get a golf R or the like in the garage

Gotcha! S3 would not be my choice either for a do it all car. It is not engaging or fun enough.
