LONG TIME honda owner, contemplating first s2K

My very first car was an 85 CRX SI and in the past five years I have had 5 different roadsters... an 11 Boxster S, a 99 Boxster, a 2000 Audi TT, and most recently (now) an '07 Miata PRHT. Kids are out of college and I've become a serial roadster acquirer/seller. Looking at this particular 2002 S2000 and test drove today. Very clean car with clear bra all around, no paint damage and less than 28K miles. Only slight downside is dealer put really cheap rear tires on it (Trivant Primera's?) Thoughts on the price of 19,900? I was going to try to negotiate another 1,500 given that its coming on fall in Central PA but not sure if that's realistic or not.

That would be an acceptable deal on that particular car in California. Maybe get the discount you're looking for, or the cost of the rear tires at the least.

I'm from PA and I don't think that would be out of line. Good luck!

thanks for the info

Thanks guys... seemed reasonable to me but there are a surprising number available on auto trader within about a 200 mile radius right now. Unusual to see so many convertibles this late in the year. Good time to buy one but (unfortunately) I'm also trading one in so will probably get a bit of a deal on the purchase and lose a bit on the trade given seasonality. I am astounded at how well the S2000s hold their value... I had never really considered one until the last few weeks and most decent low mileage ones are at 60% or higher or original MSRP (and later model years much higher and even approaching MSRP)

I have found that the prices of the S2000 have been on the way up over the past few years. A good unmolested car would be a good investment as well as tons of fun!

Good Investment?

I doubt that I would call any car purchase a good investment. I agree that the S is a great car and a lot of fun to own & drive. I am an old school sports car owner. I chose the S after my '04 RX8 was totaled because it's a car that I can work on and it isn't encumbered by all of the electronic bells & whistles of newer cars. I hope that I cam enjoy it until I am no longer physically able to.
