Default My new S2k

Hey guys

Just wanted to introduce myself, Nim from London

I picked up my s2k from a from this forum's for sale section, (unclefester) have been driving it around the last 2 days and i couldn't be happier with this car.

What an amazing car, looking forward to years of fun

Well done looks spot on - keep it as original as poss. Enjoy as am sure you surely will.

Great time of the year to have an s2000.

Any plans for it?

The only plans you should have for it is to keep it mint and original, otherwise you will knock the b 'Jesus out of the value.

Looks very nice and shouldn't take too much effort to restore the exterior to "as original as poss" if you want. At least in North America "original" cars tend to be worth more -- but that only counts when you sell it. I'd personally just garner and bag things like the correct badges in case you decide to restore or sell the car 5 years from now when parts will be in even shorter supply than they are now.

Gotta decide, did you buy the car for yourself or for the next owner. Too much fun to focus on value unless you have two lol
