Here you go:

Cons:
Could use some body work. Nothing major just scratches and dings as well as aging trim. Only rust is around sunroof. Was cleaned up a bit and primered but will benefit from further attention at some point.
Radio doesn't work. Haven't looked into it.
AC works but isn't super cold. Have belt disconnected right now.
Odo no longer works.

How many miles does it really have on it? The AC probably doesn't actually work at all, how much would that suck in FL in the summer? The radio doesn't work, that would suck all the time.

Buy this instead:

I just love the E30 ... A lot.

Really just looking for a daily. Probably going civic or integra (will be my 6th integra)

...My s2k hit 25,000 miles yesterday so i'm going through lots of feels right now...

Hm. Seems like a lot of value for what you're paying. I will have to keep this in mind in case I need to replace the GTI before my son gets his license.

25k..your car is a newborn. Drive it and enjoy. If I were going to supplement an S2k, I'd get something vastly different, not a compact car. Something like a small pickup, wrangler, etc. I like to run over stuff.

Why would you buy a tool with the intention of trying to minimize use of the tool?? Do you think that S2000 is somehow going to be a massive collectors item worth tons of money in 30 years or something?

Wondering the same thing. And it's not like with proper care your care won't be in perfect operating condition in 20 years. I've seen plenty of 30+ year old E30s at autox and HPDE events.

I'm still wondering how a tax return is burning a hole in the OP's pocket. If taxes are "returned" to you, that means you are getting money back, which is the complete opposite of "burning a hole"

Do you owe taxes for 2015? That would make sense.

"Money burning a hole in your pocket" is an expression which describes a person who spends their money as soon as they get it, like the OP trying to spend his tax return now that he has it... so it really does make sense.
