I don't think I would buy an orange one as they only made White, Black , Yellow and Blue. But you never know.

Thanks for the info.

I'd say $35-$40 with an accident free, unmodified, clean history.

Anymore than that and there are other great cars to consider from Boxster to Z06 to FD Rx-7's to new Miata(CR is a better car) to M3 to "base" s2000 to...well, you get the idea.

Aaaaand in a few years, JDM s2000's will be a better value to import to Canada than their American counterparts.

I still kick myself for not pulling the trigger on a 40,000km black CR 4 years ago for $22,500 USD.

but, as i've said before, you make your money, spend it however you like.

I don't know what the hype is all about. Great car but IMO not worth the premium they demand. Few mods will make an 06+ handle as good if not better. Good luck in your search.

Ask yourself. You bought one, then realized it was a bad decision?

I think most of us feel it's expensive maybe due to the weak Canadian dollar. If it's on par with US$ then certainly I'll buy a CR from south without hesitation. Considering the modem new car price in Canada some of them are even cheaper than U.S.... such as the new MX5 isn't it?

I think if maybe if it had more power it would make the car a little more special and worth the money IMO, otherwise it's just an s2000 with some subtle aero and differently upholstered interior

Here are a couple things to consider if you do get one.
Seats will wear quicker than the leather, staining and keeping the CR seats clean. Not so easy to replace. The yellow accents don't really blend well with any other colours besides black and yellow cars

I think Modding the exterior will lower the value of the car, fender rolling and bumper tab relocating.

Rim widths are 7" front and 8.5" rear. Not sure why the fronts are narrower than the ap2 counterparts. The car under steers in stock setup

Personally the extra money spent on the CR $10K? Could be put towards all mods and boost if need be on a regular AP2 06+. That being said I don't like the handling of the AP2 non CR. It's too mushy. The current 07 that I bought has CR suspension and AP1 00-01 front sway bar. Looking to do AP1 steering rack for the tighter ratio as well.
