First S2000 - New Member

Last month a 2002 S2000 had arrived on trade at the dealership I work. The car was parked in back when I first noticed the arrival. I was called to this car, and after a short drive I was hooked. I finally understood and felt why so many S2k owners love these cars.

A few days later I purchased the car, and what I learned about the car kept getting better. Was a one-owner, stock, and a former S2K club member where most of the 127k miles came from.

In a a world where cars are sometimes putting people to sleep with how little control you have itís invigorating to drive with a precise 6-speed manual and zero driver nannyís.

The previous owner sent a few quotes which included in paraphrase:
Itís more than a car when your heart beats a little faster, and you smile a little more.

2002 S2000
New Formula Red
127k
Stock

Welcome. Which S2k club(s) did he belong to? There's this one (obviously), there's S2KCA and there's S2KI. Do you by any chance know what screen name the previous owner used? I may know him.

Welcome. If it was a one owner car, he probably performed some important items: rear axle torque, etc.

Welcome! That's how I came upon my S2000. Got traded in at the dealership I work at and I immediately scarfed it up. Stay and do some research on your new baby and post up some pics when you get a chance. BTW, did you find the secret compartment?

Thank you.

I can confirm he was a member of atleast the S2KCA, but I do not have his username. They traded this for another vehicle at our dealership so I'm sure I will stay in contact. He was kind enough to send over his maintenance records. I will ask for his username and permission to share.

Glad to hear that you found yours the same way!

I felt like I was the salesman and customer at the same time and both were equally pushy. I talked myself into the purchase rather quickly

My first startup after finalizing paperwork it struggled and died after a few seconds in pretty cold weather. That was my warm welcome to the low friction high revving AP1.

Will be sure to post pics once I have some paint correction and detail done this Spring.

The previous owner asked the same question, and embarrassingly I did not know at that time, but have since found it. Give thanks to YouTube for that one and the fuel door release!

That membership is smaller than S2KI, so it's' quite probable I know him. You can tell him I asked if you'd like.
