My Honda S2000 (sold)

Yup, I owned a Honda S2000 after my life with the TT. Dollar for dollar, the performance of the S2000 is hard to beat.

The Honda S2000 was launched in April 1999 to celebrate the Honda's 50th anniversary and continues in the tradition of the company's previous lightweight roadster "S" cars, the S500, S600 and S800. The Honda S2000 has received praise among the press for it's handling, gearbox, and "fun-to-drive" nature with an engine and chassis that screams "faster!" I must admit that the S2k is one of the most enjoyable vehicles that I have owned.

In the words of Soichiro Honda - "The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred."
The Honda S2000 is one of those rare cars that when driven will stir your soul. But alas, I had to move on. So it is with life. It must be said, best car I ever owned for simple driving pleasure.

Modshack Cupholder Mod

The S has nothing short of an excuse for cupholders just to appease the American market. The OE cupholders are a joke and does nothing but get in the way of pure driving pleasure.

I'm not one to advocate driving while drinking or even eating (God forbid). However, I wanted more from my cupholder experience. Enter the Modshack! I scooped one of these puppies up from Steve and without any modifications, instant cupholder. These cupholders were originally created by Steve for the Audi TT. So I guess my a part of the TT will live on inside of the Honda. Thanks Modshack.

My Laguna Blue 2006 s2k!
Jan 21, 2006

A six year dream finally comes true. I've loved this car since the protype went public. Now, I am ...more

a owner.

The S2000 is no looker like the Audi. They are two totally different vehicles designed from the ground up with two different buyers. The S2000 is raw and in your face. The TT is a sight to behold and a design statement that changed the design of cars for a decade.

After all the mods I put into the TT the S outperforms the TT straight off the show room floor, where I purchased Katie from.

I used to keep a photo of a White (GPW) S2k in my work vehicle to remind myself of why I worked so hard. Never knew that after I purchased my Audi TTqc that I would return to my first love.

Katie's no beauty queen but she holds the keys to my heart.

ICE installation
Aug 16, 2006

I decided to take on this task myself. Haven't installed a car stereo in almost 20 years. The inst ...more

allation went well, albeit late at night. Took me three days (nights) working into the wee hours of the morning, a couple of times all night long in a hot garage!!!

Alpine Headunit, Sirius, Alpine Amp, Polk Audio Speakers, and Sub (sub is still up in the air and yet to be installed).

Katie is a smally car and finding places to put everything and running wire was a huge challenge.
