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

That car, even with its low mileage, lost all appeal when he went to town on creasing and chopping up the rear fenders.

What do you mean? Rear fenders weren't chopped??

They certainly were. In one of his older videos, he and someone else are taking a cut off wheel grinder, hammer and dremel to the rear fenders in order to accommodate for the new wheels. I recall them removing chunks of metal to make the wheels fit.

I know it's a widely accepted practice to do that on these cars, but on a low mileage CR, you can't argue that this kind of modification (and his poor choice in a supercharger) has not in some way affected the appeal and value of the car.

I cringed when they took the hammer to the wheel wells, but looks like he sold it for a nice amount, one of the highest priced s2000’s ever yeah?

I think he had invested close to $70K after modifications. I'm purely speculating here, but I really want to say it sold for $50-$60K.

They got out a grinder for the bumper tab relocation which can be fairly common practice. I've found you can just use heat and bend it out of the way enough. That said, people complain all the time about rolled fenders and when done properly most wouldn't even notice (unless you put your hands on the fenders). Part of the problem is people are so used to seeing so many hack jobs that that's the expectation when someone says rolled fenders. While I don't have a CR my 09 has all 4 rolled and done with proper heat at the proper pace I've managed to do all 4 cleanly without any paint cracking, etc. It's not the end of the world. Maybe I'll lose $1000 when it comes time to sell but rolled fenders are devaluing a car $5000 if done properly.

They simply trimmed the rear bumper to relocate the tab. It's a common practice when one rolls fenders to accomodate bigger wheels/tires.

I've rolled the fenders in all my cars. It's nothing more than a metal lip in the wheel wells that just get in the way. If done properly one would never know the fenders were rolled unless you looked underneath the car or felt for them. I don't see it affecting value and most S2000 owners will eventually do it anyway. I've sold well over 7 S2000's and rolled fenders were never an issue when it comes to selling... Infact most of them would have rolled them anyway.

Thankfully we have a guy here in Los Angeles that does a perfect job rolling them.

I recently rolled the fenders on my Integra Type R. Many were upset and It certainly hits a chord with some people lol.
