    Only one S2000 I've ever seen that I really liked was Tyler's (forget his RC name).

    It's just a wrap, so easily removed in the future. It's black underneath.

    mine was a second car that turned into my every day car. i miss it all the time.
    the pros:
    top down summer night cruising through the city
    getting it twitchy and sideways a little bit on a whim
    vtec through tunnels

    the cons:
    cant leave it overnight anywhere
    every idiot wants to race
    cop attention grabber
    too low with the ap1 lip, would scrape everywhere
    interior is humid in the rain and the rear end will come around on you if youre not careful

    pic whore time :wiggle:

    if i had it for sale now, i could probably get 3k more than what i sold it for 3 years ago. the values are appreciating on them

    i dont care for modded ones. the driving dynamic of them in factory form is so much better than modded. I took the tein adjustable dampening coilovers off and the enkei rpf1s and sold them. much prefered the ride quality after and it handled way better.

    Boots you should look into an FR-S if you are looking for something fun and relatively inexpensive.

    I know it's on a different level than most of the cars here but I finally got around to assembling a car I've tinkered with on and off the past like 4 years...

    Basically I took all the power options from a 4 door Gas Jetta, combined them with a wiring harness from a 4 door automatic TDI Golf and made everything work in a base model 2 door 5spd TDI Golf, then threw in GTI suspension and interior bits and made a car that was never really available... good times.

    The body had a pile of parts replaced 4 years ago under VW's rust warranty... I hope to get the bumpers painted to match.

    I guess I was confused by the "paint bumpers to match" as they looked all the same color to me.

    The most of the car was painted, the bumpers and mirror caps weren't; they look like hell by comparison to the rest of the car....

    Old man handed down his old truck to me about 2 months ago. Been enjoying tinkering. I need to get a hold of the stock tail lights. 1996 gmc Sierra z71 297000 kms 70 on motor tranny and rear end. Factory 14 bolt posi with 373's. The front end is all original. Never been aligned and drives straight as an arrow. It was my old man's pride and joy but his health doesn't alow him to take care of it so now it's my pride and joy. Planning a frame off resto at the moment so it's perfect for me to hand down to my son on his 16th birthday.

    This is my latest M3. This one is a 1997 that I picked up in Campbell River BC last Sept. Has about 104,000kms, it is a European Spec and was never offered for sale in North America in it's configuration. Has a 3.2L inline 6 with 316hp, 6 speed transmission, and 3.64 lsd diff I swapped in from an 01 M3. The US versions were a 240 hp I6 with 5 spd. I redid the suspension and diff/clutch this spring and put about 2500kms on it this summer including a bunch of autoslaloms. Works really well and is in excellent shape. I could end up keeping this one for a while. The E30's have gone through the roof in value and this one is rare enough that it has a good chance of going up as well.

    This one here is a 1997 as well. We built this car over the past winter to race at AMP in Shubie. Started life as a street car in Louisiana and was a Hurricane Katrina write off (but spotless go figure). Was brought up here and owned by another local member as his personal summer daily for a number of years, brought his daughter home from the hospital in it. We got it in Oct 2014 and immediately went to work on it. It was stripped and sent to Quebec to a pro cage builder and then came back for assembly from Jan to May. Has a 3.2L S54 from an 01 M3 running on a stock modified ecu with CSL tune (Alpha N), Big carbon airbox, Supersprint headers, makes about 350 at the crank with no other mods, 2600 lbs, MCS dampers, 3 clutch ramped 3.73 diff. We just completed the first season at AMP and won all 4 championships, winning 15 of 20 total races, no DNF's, and setting a fast lap of 1:11.7 (good enough for 7th on the CDN Superbike grid)
