A boosted s2000 is quite an upgrade from a z3. One of our local guys owns both and tells us that even with 10k in suspension work, it's not even close. A 400-500whp s2k would put a bigger grin on your face then any car mentioned here, and it's nice to know that you won't be in the shop every 3 days.
