My Ride: No longer an e46
This stupid forum has me looking at s2ks.

I eventually want to pick up a fun weekend car, something used possibly classic, just caught myself looking at s2ks.

Friend bought one right around when I got my e46 back in 2004, was a blast to drive. May have to add it to my list.

Does this mean I have to also get rid of the truck for a jeep?

I have no plans to get anything anytime soon, just often look to see what's out there, caught myself looking up s2ks today.

The front of the E46 hasn't really aged well at all IMO.

I have thought about getting another e46, however I just remember how much anything was for them and I don't want to go down that road again, although I am sure after market parts prices have come down.

I had about a grand invested in the interior of mine and all I had was a new shift knob, ebrake handle, custom shift and ebrake boots, some upgrades to the dash, some wiring for an ipod and not much else.

lol, you must be in the 0.0001% that feels this way. You're blind if you don't think the E46 has aged well.

EEEK, I needed a daily and I couldn't afford an S2K, plus I really enjoyed the Miata I drove in Japan so I bought an one. 8===D

Boosted, is that one yours? Where'd you get that deflector decal?

Also please note that the pic of the S2000 was it moving and the E46 was not. Mostly because it was probably broken and leaking oil.

The new MX5 is nice (although I do like the look of a modified s2k better), just don't call it a miata

They are supposed to be awesome drivers car, too bad they got such a bad reputation here.
