It is an amazing car. Very hard to find one at retail price.

Kalash: If you mean the R Type, I've heard that. The dealer here is like "List price...Why do you ask?" Living in the midwest has it's advantages. There is a waiting list and the kid is now number one on the list.

Yeah, I tried to find one early in 2018 but I gave up... Used cars are now being sold at new price.

I think that long term this car will keep its value very well.

Touché!

Be honest, who handles the angular lines better? hehehe

I don't miss owning a 300HP front-wheel-drive car. If they've tamed the wrist-snapping torque steer, it probably means they've also tamed the fun.

If I was a Honda fan, I'd probably be all over that. The S2000 remains the only Honda I've ever considered buying...

I hear the S2000 is a boring taxi cab until you get it near the top of the rpm curve then it allegedly gets fun
