2016 I took mine to the Monaco GP and back via the Alps and Col de Turini. Roof down allll the way, overcast northern France, drizzly Alps, scorching Cote D'Azur.
At a constant 70-80-mumble mumble the drone and high revs can be a bit wearing on motorways. If you can mix up the road type, you'll be better off. I had no issues with back pain.
10 day trip and the tent and all the kit got wedged in the boot.
Hopefully going to Lucca and back this year....avoiding the mototway where I can...

Nice low mileage example here - https://www.s2kuk.com/classified/HONDA-S2000-16V-G...

And an impressive price tag to match.

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.
We took mine to the Dordoyne and back via Classic Le Mans a few years ago, roof down the whole way. Hubby reckons his forehead goes numb eventually though as he sits a bit higher than me.

I debated replacing mine a few years ago and there wasn't really an obvious move without losing the chuckable feel or increasing the running costs dramatically. I decided at that point to keep it and start spending some cash on tidying it up . . . really glad.
In the nine years I've owned her, and I've put around 50k on her in that time, I've replaced exhaust, roof, resprayed her and had the suspension refreshed - was seized etc. Probably spent around 5k, but over nine years I don't think that's to bad and I'd think she'll be around what I paid for her in a years time.
Best car purchase I've ever made smile I've been asked a few times in the last year if I fancy selling her . . . no, nope, no chance biggrin

Fast forward to summer 2020 and the prices are very firm now! Definitely appreciating and getting harder to find a clean, standard, low miles S2000.

I now have one for sale. 06 GT with 23k miles.

What’s it worth do we think?

Considering the one on Collecting Cars was an 04 with 75k miles went for £12.5k it might be more than you think!

I have a car in the exact same spec (including hardtop) but at 57k and could do with a wheel refurb and new roof (but is still watertight). I would have been happy to get £8-9k privately, the WBAC is around £7k.

Has anyone ever sold through the S2K club? I have been a member for a few years but never got that involved.

People tend to seek out pre facelifts or pre March 06 facelifts (for lower road tax), but there are so few good, clean rust-free cars for sale that anything without rust, problems or irreversible modifications is a good bet value wise. An 04 with 75k miles has just been removed from autotrader and was up for £12.5k. I don’t know if it sold, but if it did that’s an indication. A 53 plate car with similar miles has been on Facebook market place for a year (unsold) and has just resurfaced on the S2K Facebook group for £10k. It’s getting interest.
Unless it’s well the other side of 100,000 miles it’s £8k minimum for a healthy rust free car IMHO. The later cars (06-) also seem to have a following as they are the most developed.

No rush Bev. Drop me a PM if / when you do decide to sell. I used to have a 2004 Moonrock but sold due to kids. Miss it a lot and wish to have another one!

Bargains are still to be had for higher mileage examples. Rust and engine having clean bill of health is all I would be interested in, and these are becoming increasingly hard to find.

No one else disappointed with these?

I bought an '06 20k mile minter, full history and almost indistinguishable from new but, engine aside, I never gelled with it mainly because the chassis and steering lacked feel and involvement.

I can kind of see the historic allure but the reality may not match expectation.

Yes, not over enamoured myself though it’s my nippers car and he’s only done 1000 miles in 2 years as he doesn’t like it.

Feels to me that you have to be revving it’s nuts off to get anywhere because of zero torque.

Great gearbox and fun car when in the mood. I like the look of it from the back but the front angle looks girly

The later cars dialled out the edgy handling of the early cars, but in all likelihood it was down to wheel alignment and tyres. They’re very sensitive to both. Having previously had an Elise and a Boxster I’ve no complaints about the S2000.

It's certainly a marmite car. I agree on the steering feel. The steering itself is fast and direct, but the feel is lacking. Chassis is fine, maybe you didn't have geo set up properly and didn't have the right tyres on yours?

For me, it's one of the most fun cars for the money. Personally, the car has an emotional attachment to me, so not just looking at the car as it is. This is why I would want another one in my garage. I wouldn't be able to live with it as a daily though. The cockpit is a bit too tight, no proper cup holders, nowhere really to put your phone, no cruise control, high revs even in 6th, not great when its icy on the roads, thin roof and noisy etc.

Steering is disappointing for sure, but I’d disagree with comments around the chassis. I find it quite communicative through your hips and bum, the front end responds really well to trail braking too. You end up driving the car much more through the feel of weight transfer across the front and rear axles than the steering input.
