Thanks guys, very kind comments, and very much appreciated.

And agreed, I need to get some more miles on it, I'll be working on that!

In all seriousness, these are priced very reasonably for what they offer - the engine is one of a kind, an utter classic. Prices will continue to rise undoubtedly.

As much as I loved my S1 Sport 135, a K series is frankly at the opposite end of the spectrum to the glorious F20C.
And then of course it's a Honda so it's well built and reliable as well, a nice bonus in a car like this.

Mine.

Nice - always had a soft spot for Silverstone, like the splitter too.

These are great cars, I'm not surprised they're going up in value.

Fifteen thousand for a minter?

Sounds a lot, but when compared to what 15k buys as a new car today I can understand it.

Just look at what way Z3m's are going, nice one up for 35k.

Here's mine. Wrapped up in the garage until the spring arrives. I looked for ages to find a good silver one with red leather.

Had an S2000 a few years back and sold it - it had around 66k on it. Fancying another & seen a few but with high miles - anyone know if 150k plus would trouble these engines providing the they have been looked after?

I've bought my '00 S2000 back in 2011, so have owned it for quite a while and has only appreciated. I've had it as my daily driver for a few years, but that got pretty tiring. Now it's garaged as a 2nd car just for fun and appreciate it more now.

It has had a few changes (upgrades) over the years which made it even better (well it least to me). It's got the 2004 model 17" wheels, Bilstein B14 coilovers, braided brack lines, DS2500 pads and a K&N FIPK filter (sounds great!).

Sorry Trails - that's even better then!

Just shows how Moonrock can change in different lights, great colour.

I was going to buy an S2000 in 2010, we had taken in an ‘02 in blue with black leather.

Imagine my disappointment when I realised I was too fat to fit in it!

I’m thin enough now, but prices have gone up and having a 2 year old means I can’t have one as a daily driver. Shame really as they’re superb cars.

Here's mine, which replaced the one I killed at Spa (engine let go).

2009 with 19k miles, I paid far too much for it but I plan to keep it for a long time, so it doesn't matter, really.

I am selling my parents, sadly they're too ill to drive it frown It a 2002, they purchased it off my brother, so we've had it in the family for 11 years. Lovely cars, although not enough room for me, much more room in the TVR.

Hi,
Have any of you done a long road trip in an S2000 e.g. a holiday round Europe ?. I'm quite tempted to get an S2000 to replace my SLK350, and would like to do a long road trip this year. Wondering whether the noise would make it too tiring to drive long distances, so keen to hear the experience of others . I'm a big fan of the VTEC engine, having had my EP3 Civic for the past 12 years.

I could be interested, how many miles/owners etc..

As with any soft fabric roof car you'll get an increase in road noise. Coming from an SLK, you could opt for an S2000 with a hardtop, although if you do, bear in mind picking up a (matching colour) hard top seperately can cost up to a grand.

I've taken mine for a week around Wales, so not quite mainland Europe - the car was faultless really. If you do like extra comfort and you probably do if you like the Mercedes you own, the S2000 seats can be controversial in terms of long distance relaxability - so, sit in one, and understand how the seat can conform to your body, and adjust, test, etc.

Of course nothing beats the roof off, B-road carving joy of a summer drive, so yeah, try one out. It'll hold or increase it's value whereas your SLK will continue to lose you money! (sorry, but, we know it is true wink )

Theoretically if the car is not registered as a GT the hardtop would constitute a modification - you also have to price in the hardtop brackets and gubbins incl. window defrost wiring. Depends on MY.

When I had mine, the hardtop was nice for the winter commute, but no way would I tour with it on.
