Default 15 years and still lovin' it

It just occurred to me that it's been 15 years this week since I drove my brand new S2000 out of the dealership in Weybridge. It's not been difficult since to replicate the grin I had on that day, or the puzzlement when I couldn't find out how to release the fuel filler flap and had to phone the garage so they could tell me where the switch was !
Amazing drives, fantastic people, great memories.

133,000 miles. MOT passed today with just an advisory for cracked valves on the front tyres. I take my hat off to you Shigeru Uehara

Am now enjoying it all over again with my suspension polybushed and Meister coilovers fitted and and a well overdue realignment.

Looking forward to the next 133,000 (especially Euromeet next year !!).

It just occurred to me that it's been 16 years since I drove my brand new S2000 out of the delivery garage at Heathrow. No intention of replacing it.

Driving back from Honda Redhill today started to get me thinking about all the great trips and events in my MY03 so with no apologies for the picture quality I'm now going to get seriously nostalgic with y'all . my tribute to 15 years of v-tec pleasure.
you may remember some of these.....

I realise my dream of owning the car I had lusted after for 4 years. Delivery mileage only... she looks great.

I don't seem to have too many pics of the car. I either must have been too busy driving it or my camera had broke. Did find this one from an early trip to the New Forest though.

I was working away a lot at this time, but I do remember finding this group of S2000 owners on the internet and lurking in their posts most evenings. At this point I'd probably decided she was a keeper.

i'd just met Maryam so perhaps the interest in the car had waned a bit My S and her 106 in the snow in February. At this point I was wondering if this was a practical car for the winter !

My very first S2KUK meet. I'm pretty sure it was somewhere in East Sussex or Kent. If anyone recognises this pub then please let me know. They were a pretty friendly bunch of people IIRC.

Haha love it

They are awful on snow but it was my only car years ago so I got winter's on the 16s and bought some 17s. I use them but not much, I don't have any other winter's and all my cars are shite on snow
