Newbie from Chicago Area

Hello everyone...

I joined this site to get some more information on S2000, and hopefully make a friend or two. =)


I do not yet own a S2000 yet, but hopefully I will by the end of summer.


Thanks!!!!


James

Welcome James. Have you narrowed down your search criteria yet, year & model?

Sorry to revive an old thread... I was hoping to get an S2000 by end of summer (last year, 2012) things got a bit hectic, and got put on hold.

The search for the right S2000 is on now, I sold my 'other toy' yesterday.

I haven't gotten a clue... just starting some research. I think this might be a common question... AP1 vs AP2? I haven't started the research on that debate yet, but I have a feeling that subject might have come up here once or twice... again, the research begins.

You might find it helpful to join the Upper Mid-West S2000 Owners forum on Facebook.

There are still a few folks active in Chicagoland, including me, that have been S2000 owners since 1999.

There are generally weekly owners meets around the Chicagoland area all year-round.

Outside of the factory mules, the first supercharged S2000, the first one with VAFC, vented OEM hood, all happened within the Chicagoland owners group.

There are also several tuners that focus on the S2000, including, but not limited to Profunction (Schaumburg), Dan Rivers (Naperville), Suja 1 Motoring (Addison) and King Motorsports (New Berlin, WI). I have used and been happy with all four of these tuners.

L8Apex,

Thanks for the information... FB group looks like fun bunch of people. Looks like it's a 'closed' group, I'll send in a request to join, when I get my S2000.

Chicago doesn't get the respect that it deserves when it comes to some fast cars. My Supra has visited Sound Performance couple of times, and they always seem to have couple of 1000hp+ cars in the shop at all times.
