Bought my '04 S2000 on Craigslist for great price!

Hey everyone,
I'm living in Phoenix area and just bought a 2004 S2000 from Corona, CA that I stumbled upon on Craigslist. I've been looking for one of these for a long time, and finally bagged a great catch. Never though I'd drive a car daily that provides as many smiles as my old '66 Datsun 1600 roadster or 1977 Fiat 124 Spider with plenty more power than both. Love it!
Here is the original Craigslist ad:
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/2661876768.html
offered him $14.8k....real nice guy.

Look forward to chatting with all of ya on here.

-Steve

You bet...I heard about it a few months back when looking for an S2000 for sale on a forum. It is deeper than I imagined, so its perfect for owner's manual and such. Taking it to Bell Honda in Phoenix tomorrow for a thorough look over of everything mechanical. Hope it gets a clean bill of health.

I saw a few north of $20k and thought "I'll never find a sweet car under my $15k budget...guess I'll settle for something else..." I was so surprised to find one in this good of condition for the price.
Just had it at the Honda dealership today for a full mechanical over view (mainly because I don't own a lift...or I'd do it myself). They told me everything was great!!!
Gave it a spongy bath today and she's shining better than ever.

AHHHH, the SPL311...what a fun car that was. My sister had a boyfriend in high school who drove one, I had a bugeye sprite...we used to terrorize the mountain roads.

Welcome to the site! Looks like you have found a beauty!

Just purchased 2007 S2000

Wow, nice ride. Took my first MPG average for first 100 miles. Did a mix of driving and got around 20mpg. I was pleasantly surprised given that I accelerated with a heavy foot quite a bit. Found out about the red line cutoff through experience. Had read about the peak horsepower was from 7000 to 9000 rpms. I think I hit the cut-off at slightly above 8000. Had previously tried a 2001 model that did not have that feature.

Well I really like it and besides a problem with losing the radio after having the battery replaced it's been a very nice experience.
