S2000 CR Club Racer Edition CR stands for "club racer," conjuring up the good old days when guys drove their sports cars to the track, raced them, and then, if the racing gods were smiling, drove them home again

I've had 3M product on my car from day 1. Can't beat it. If anyone wants to get it on their car you should get this version from 3M as this has self healing properties: Scotchguard 3M Pro Series.

Installation is the key.

Xpel is excellent, Non of the CR's have it (so far) but the NSX has it. I agree Sandeep, the installer is the key to a finished product that is barely visible with a minimum of seams. Do be careful what you apply over your clearbra, some products are detrimental to it's long term appearance, consult your installer for cleaning/protection products.

Agree. Installer is key.

I mentioned in a few other threads that I'm looking at TSX wagons. I also found an E92 that I liked. Both are in New Jersey which works great because Detailers Domain is there and they use Xpel Ultimate there.

Don't get me wrong, I have had no problems with either of my past s2000s with 3M Clearbra, I just have heard a lot of good things about Xpel so I wanted to try it.

Who is your go to painter? How were the wheels redone exactly? I see him with an orbital type tool in the picture, does he refinish them?

Thanks!!!


Nate at CNC does the paint for me. He did work on my EM1 and M3.

Son sands it down and airbrushes. Then he adds a few coats of clear. These are stocks...not an aftermarket set. I'm planning on running the MF10s, but I won't mount them until I replace some of the suspension parts and install the coil overs. As soon as my Cusco stuff comes in, the other stuff will be installed.

That's substantially cheaper than what I am being quoted in Arizona for the same thing.

Do you know what brand your material is?

I believe it's the latest and greatest from 3M, but don't quote me on that. Let me ask.
Just confirmed that it's 3m

Forgot to mention the WASP Composite lip protector and side diffusers.

Because certain items are dependent on other things getting installed (ie...waiting for hood before painting hardtop. Waiting for hood before installing intake. Waiting for Cusco parts before doing coil overs. Waiting for coilovers before mounting MF10s...etc), I'm currently looking at redoing the audio system as well. At the end of the day I want it to have a well rounded car... little show, a little go, and a little sound.

Hopefully it will be all done by Homecoming, and hopefully I can make it.
