Me too, even if it is a five-speed. Even more than driving the car I am feeling the urge to start wrenching on it again, I quit in late December as it was too damn cold in the garage, it hasn't felt warm enough to get back in there until now.

HA! You do miss it per se. Otherwise you wouldn't be posting on s2ki saying you don't miss it!

I think the S2000 has a high rate of remorse among owners who eventually sell them. I certainly miss mine, but I've come to the conclusion that I likely will not own a second one at any time in the near future as much as I love them. It just isn't very practical for me to have a car like that at this stage in my life. It is definitely my favourite car that I've ever owned, but my current vehicle lineup is just much more practical given my family needs. I think many people end up with the same decision as I made given the nature of the vehicle.

I've enjoyed every member that I've met and many that I've never met on these forums. Along with being one of the best cars out there, it also allows you to participate in one of the best car forums. I question why I check this forum several times per day despite me not likely owning an S2000 any time soon. I expect that I will soon fade away and detach myself from the forum, this could be my last post actually. I always hope to be back, but I just don't know. It was the best 9 years of my life though. All the best to everyone.

Anyone have a connect for 4-post lifts and install? Preferably Bendpak?

Most 4 post have the option for casters so the don't need to be bolted down and can be moved around.

Is that safe? Casters can hold 5,000lbs+ weight?

They only ride on the casters when you lower them so that you can move the whole thing. Google "4 post car lift with casters"

Casters are only to move the lift when empty. My point was that you don't need to bolt it down. I have 2 friends with 4 post and neither is bolted to the floor. They don't move them around a lot but like having the option.
