I feel the same way about mine. Bought mine at 39k miles, owned by 2 old men before me. I thought I would keep the car forever, but only a year and a half (and 3000 miles) later I am totally over this thing. Having a car with such low miles totally ruins the fun. I am selling mine too, I'm gonna buy a beater track miata and actually have fun now. I did autoX my s2000 once, but going on a track would be the most fun.


p.s, good luck on selling your car. I have had mine up for sale for over 3 months now at a prettty fair price (18k) and I only last week had someone who was going to buy the car (we agreed on $17,500 but I was rear-ended two days before we were going to sign over the paperwork).

All of the actual s2000 enthusiasts know that buying a low mileage s2000 is a waste of money since these cars are so reliable, so the people who will be looking at your car will constantly be offering blue-book and probably won't take the hardtop into account if you sell it with the car. This group of people low little to nothing about s2000s, and will waste your time (have had a few people straight walk away after hearing the ap1 clutch buzz).

Put yours up on BAT with the hardtop, if it's in good enough condition- and hope you get your money back.

Best of luck,
-Tyler.

I've regretted selling almost every car I have owned for one reason or another. It's just part of being a car guy. I think I made a wise choice buying a higher mileage (79k at the time) well taken care of S because it was affordable and will still allow me to purchase another totally different car that satisfies my need to "have it all" on a budget. I have right around 10k invested in my S2000 (after selling the hardtop I would never use) so I can still comfortably hunt for the Corvette I am currently after and not feel bad about it. I am really taking my time and will either get an early 90's ZR-1 or an older C5 Z06. This is the first time in my life where I haven't had more than 1 toy car and I don't like it. lol

I think the you'll regret it comment was more to mean you'll regret it so much you'll eventually buy another, and wish you still had the one you have now.

We've seen that happen multiple times before. Someone comes back to the forum with that very story.

Of course, we don't hear about the ones where someone sells and never comes back, so its a skewed statistic. Still, it seems to happen way more often than you'd think.

This may be the case for me 100%. But I think if I fall into this pattern in years to come, I'll buy a used one with a bunch of miles and not worry about what I do to it. It'll be a much healthier ownership for me.

Thank you all for your inputs. I have put the car up for sale.

Sorry to hear that the negatives outweighed the positives for you. You know best how the ownership experience impacts you. That color combo will hopefully help the sale as it is pretty rare. Where did you end up listing your car? I hope that you get what you are wanting out of it.
