Here are 16 shots of her, I am a little obsesive. I bought her with 9800 miles on her Tuesday and I already have 11,XXX miles :lol: HOWEVER, most of that came from the 10hr drive back from Va where I bought her. Anyways, here is the new ride in HD.

Nothing too much. Intake, maybe a testpipe, better brake fluid, and better pads. She is going to stay mostly stock and recieve a lot of track time hopefully. Possibly an oil cooler will find its way into the mix as well.

That's seriously the only thing holding you back? Its the most functional, useful tachometer I've ever encountered.



My favorite. The chubby bunny picture. :p

Looks like an awesome car! I also don't like the instument cluster though, but that might change if I were driving one for a while ;) Congrats on the new ride!! I hear those things handle very nicely :)

I think the instrument cluster is one of the best parts about the car. When you rev it up to 9k rpms, they entire rpm band starts to flash at you, sorta like a shift light.

This is true...it really is better than a tradition tach in that aspect as you can use your periphial(sp?) vision to watch for the flashing to know when to shift. Helps keep your eyes on the track. Oh, and to say it handles well is an understatement :wink: 8)

No, the other thing holding me back is my love for the also 9K-revving wunder-machine... yep, the RX8.

I just need to test drive the S2K, though, because the RX8 just HAS me.

The RX8 is an awesome car. However, I will never own anything rotary powered, so I didn't even consider that car.
