Full Service S2000 shop Chicago area

I know there are threads with mentions of various shops in the area. I've had a couple of them act really flakey, for example, not returning phone calls or doing quotes. Other shops may be just too...

Miata is well over 50% for manual.
M2 is a little over 50% manual.
These are the exceptions.

The point of the S2000 for me is not that they’re super fast because that wasn’t relevant when they came out in 1999. All these cars have speed that can’t be used on the street. Most are flappy...

if it drives like a cayman/box then yeah it makes a whole lot irrelevant including the junior Porsches and maybe the 911 too. It’s the most interesting new Vette since the 5th gen. (Not sure how...

I’m guessing the guys who buy these have 10+ cars. It’s not Bugatti money but the people who buy those have like 50+ cars. Like you say, it’s for money-object-collectors who want the ultimate...

Ive driven garden variety modern 911s, Caymans and Boxster though no GT4 or GT3s or air cooled. I find the S2000 the more fun car though ymmv.

There is a tuning community for the N52. It starts with taking the intake manifold from 255hp car. It was on the 330i which was 2006-7 maybe? Those manifolds are like $2k but I think used ones are...

I drive another E92 (that’s the coupe) M3 and continue to be impressed. It’s way more luxurious and less raw than the E46 M3 which. I’m not sure if I like that. I have to remember the context that I...

What’s Your Favorite Year for Cars?

Mine is around 2008. I like manuals and natural aspiration. My choices here are admittedly subjective and limited either what I know or dream about.

The Bimmerpost forum would argue that the $20k E90 M3 isn’t going to be any good. And yet about half of the E90/2 manuals on autotrader are under $25k. I drove a 102k mile one that was $18.9k and it...

What JonBoy said. This is what I mean when I say there’s no joy winding out the bmw turbo 6. It’s big rush of torque when the boost comes on then nothing after that.
