Interesting! At this end of the country the £300k property would only be worth £250k, with the builder finding a way of raking back the subsidy value for themselves. The same thing happens in...

Interesting questions! To the OP, did the previous owner warn you about the oil consumption?

Just checked my Honda Dealer service invoices for the oil used in the last 4 years:

That's true about the engine bay not being pictured, maybe everything's been chrome plated for the ultimate bling effect!

On a more serious note, for today's buyer new to the S2k, I'd expect an...

I don't need to ask, you're stating the obvious that a 21YO needs to hear. This doesn't mean you 'must' insure the vehicle, or indeed everyone will. It's subject to a cost-benefit analysis of the...

If I had the OP's budget:


Buy the S2k you want
SORN the S2k and put it on axle-stands in off-road storage WITHOUT insurance
Buy an MX5 for £1.5k
Insure the MX5 for < £1k
Wait until the...

I have a better idea, get an S600 or S800 to complement your S2k!



Agree...but more importantly if you had to live with it as a driver's car for years, would it still top the S2k? For me, mine...

He's right, there could be a perfectly good explanation for it though. The clarity of that explanation will tell you a lot about the seller as well. The panel/bonnet gaps aren't a great match...

S2Bray makes a good point about the heat issues with FI cars, and the additional weight and subsequent effect on the balance. Also the S2k is a hoot and plenty quick with minimal mods.

It's a nice car in it's own right, it looks like they wanted a TVR. I don't know it or the owner.

I must admit it's piqued my interest with that level of economy especially since I've done 26k miles in the FK2 CTR in just over a year. That gets a reasonable 32mpg, but I'm certainly feeling it...
