Driving the S2000 isn't that much of an issue for me. Getting in and out is more of a problem, and even that is not so bad with the roof down. I'm on the list for a new hip later on this fall, so we'll see how that goes. The driving position and seat suit me well, and that's a good thing, as I am into my nineteenth year of ownership. Only one speeding ticket, knock on wood! Glad I went for the "drab Silverstone" instead of the flashy "arrest me red"! Would have been a different story without the hidden Valentine though.

Glad to know it's nothing more than that. 19 years of enjoyment and counting, awesome. That's when you know a car was definitely "worth it". I'd guess that you got your money's worth from your S a while ago and are now more or less into the pure bonus phase of ownership. Good stuff!

Just want to say thanks to the input I received here. I pulled the trigger on a 2007 GPW red/black with OEM hardtop, and one owner today!

I am the third owner of my 07' GPW w/ FHT Red/Blk. 36k miles. I think these cars will see a rise in price over the next ten years for sure. Hold on and enjoy the curves!! Peace

I'm so jealous of the GPW and Black/Red interior combo. Looks so good.

Congrats sssmokin. I can't easily explain why I think these cars look exceptionally fine in Grand Prix White, but then your photos sum things up nicely. Enjoy!
