Default New owner here from Toronto!

Just got myself a 2005 s2000 NFR.
Looking for recommendations for a s2000 mechanics in GTA, suggestions?
Any specific services/things I should get looked at?


Haven't had a chance to take many photos, buts here one from the fill I had to do on the first drive back:


Thanks for the help!

Congrats on your AP2 NFR! You should come to our monthly meets if you can. And as for bodyshops and mechanics there's already a thread about this here: List of trusted mechanics and body shops

Nice purchase but it looks like you have a Blue Heron as a driver!

well done.
2005 is known to be one of the best year's for the s2000- no engine quirks (DBW exhaust valves, or AP1 cracked retainers), right trans, diff combo.

but...rear axle nuts retorque, change every fluid to reset them to zero, pcx-004 oil filter, good tires, proper alignment- and since I'm nuts, do a spec valve adjustment anyway.

then, when you tired of the heavy flywheel and clutch delay valve, you'll change to an AP1 flywheel, and remove the CDV.

welcome to the fold

Haha at first I didn't know what you were talking about, but now I can't un-see it!

Thanks for the recommendations Darcy, I'll try to get those things looked at as soon as I figure out which mechanic I want to go to.
