    Maybe you should consider an Impreza WRX instead!

  4. Re: What should i get?

    Well- if you get the mustang...you have to get a GT (because the straight six the put in the base models just plain suck. So get the S2000. It competes with cars like the corvette, Z3, and Boxster S and it beats just about every one of those. Do yourself a favor and get the S2000. I'm not a Honda salesman or anything...I'm just a high school student that is a major car freak...I follow all this stuff. Road and Track tested this agaimst all those cars I listed and they felt that it out performed and handled all of them.

    The RSX is a very tempting car in the type-s trim. 6-speed manual, 6.5 sec. 0-60, etc. for about 7000 less than the S-2000. I would personally go with the S-2000 if you could afford it and space was not an issue. I would never go with the Mustang because I don't like most American cars (not to say don't try it out). The Eclipse is also a good choice because of its cruising capabilities. It is a grand touring car, and will be the most comfortable to drive around town and long distance. Plenty of power with the GT trim and plenty of room for light luggage.

    The S-2000 has the best performance out of all of these cars. I've seen R&T do 0-60 in 4.9 sec!!! I've been in one and can tell you the engine note above 6000 RPM is perfect. The transmission is one of the best in the world - very precise, and it revs to 9000 RPM! R&T said it performed like the Integra Type-R (0-60 in approx. 7 sec) below 6000 RPM, but when the VTEC kicked in at 6000, it took off like a Ferrari. It is the ultimate minimalistic, unrealistic, and down right fun supercars you can get for under $50,000usd in my book.

    Hope I was helpful, and test drive them all just for fun!

    man you gotta go for the S2000, it has the best looks and you get the best specs for the money you deal out
    Mustang's look pretty sweet but they just don't feel like a sports car so whatever you do don't get the mustang.
     
  8. Re: What should i get?

    get a s2000 its the best car to get out of all those cars. rsx sucks cause in a 1 or 2 years its gonna be packed with dem on the streets. mitsubishi eclipse cause in a couple of years its gonna break down. and a mustang cause muscle cars cant beat a import except for the 60's and 70's cars. s200 is good handing/nice/fast/and no one has one and bad ass.
     
  9. Re: What should i get?

    GET THE S2000!!!
    Fastest car in its class in the world and has won many awards in Australia, including best sports car over 56,000, devinately the S2000, wonderful looks and performance and refinement from Honda that you cant get out of an American car!
    GO THE S2000!!!!
    I Just want one<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: What should i get?

    Don't get an S2000 they arn't that fast from a start unless you rev them to 5000+ rpm and drop the clutch. They have no low end torque and they are as slow as a baseline honda until 5000rpm not to fun for the street.

  12. Re: What should i get?

    I think this would be a great car to buy. I hang out with all the street racers in my area and I actually saw one of these go up against a Viper and beat it. The driver of the S2000 got him off the line and down the street, it was great.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: What should i get?

    s2000 lots more 4 the price. good quality
     
  14. Re: What should i get?

    I agree with Trans Am. This honda is pure shit and it costs more than a trans am and the trans would kick its ass
    Peace
     
  15. Re: What should i get?

    those american hillbillies are morons first off. . . secondly. . have you considered the wrx? same price as everything you listed besides the s2000, but you get the best of all worlds. . . <!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: What should i get?

    S2000 You!
    Them stats speak for themselves, I assume you also got Hi-Octane where you live (95+) So go for it.

    Better than anything in its class (TT, SLK, Z3, ) which are just yuppie cars.

    Plus you get the highest specific power of any 'fresh-air engine available today!

  17. Re: What should i get?

    Go with the WRX homie, AWD/turbo is the way to go. You can launch high, get no wheel spin and roast foos. Plus with the money you save you can get a bigger turbo, boost controller, suspension, exhaust, and a performance chip. That is what I would do in your situation. Even if you wanted to keep it stock, they are tight. I Test drove one when my dad was looking at them. A guy in my area has an overboosted talon TSI and it cooks. One night i say him beat a lighning, and two suped up mustang GT's. <!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: What should i get?

    The only problem with the WRX is that it is FUCKING UGLY AS ALL HELL! This car is gorgeous, and a blast to be in...

    I would go with the S2000 over the rice rocket WRX anyday...

    Don't argue that with me either, the S2000 gets the same power as the WRX does... And it does not use a turbo!

    Peace
     
  19. Re: What should i get?

    Word on that. Imagine what ECU and Turbo can do for a S2000.
    I know AWD is the best drive system around, but For those who want to show off and back swing the car when they get a chance to it is perfect.
    Valeside kit for the Car makes it look even meaner!

  20. Re: What should i get?

    ppfft anyone that bases thier car decision on looks doesn't deserve the true enjoyment you get from a nice car. . . also, you guys act like pricce means nothing!! the honda s2000 costs 30k base!! the wrx is only about 22k base! that is a huge difference especially when you consider the wrx holds 3 more passengers, much more stuff in the trunk, and has all wheel drive for winter months (depending on where you live, the awd, and the non converable would be very important. . . ) to sum up what i am saying. . . the wrx is: more practacle, easier to control, simpler in ergonomics, much much better in value, almost identicle in performance and just about as much fun (if it were a convertable i would dare to say it was as much fun. . . )<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: What should i get?

    Don't know where you at but round here in SA the WRX is $26,976 exactly. While the BMW M3 is $39,600. Bang for buck, the Scooby used to be the best, now it's not. M3 Gives you 'looks', 255KW at $155 a kilowatt compared to the $168 a kilowatt of the WRX. You're only gettin' 160KW and a 0-100Km/h sprint of 7+ seconds. Please I'd rather a Toyota RSI then. It's far cheaper and and is only a 7.7 sec sprinter with some good power.

    Freak Even Astra Coupe at $14,588 is better bang for buck. You get 140KW on the wheels giving you a far better bang than the WRX can. About $105 per Kilowatt!

    Point being let us not take the argument there, about practical_vs_perfomance because as much of a Subaru Fan I am, I will tell the truth and admitt that their no longer worth what they used to be.

    Back in the GT days it was a flat $22,000 with slightly better power and handling. For that price then, nothing could beat it, couldn't even say M3 next to Impreza GT.
    Now it seems as if GM has changed Subaru's focus.
    The people who own GT's and Wrex's own them not because they are after Luxury and Comfort, but they are after Perfomance and an almost magical 'fear' they put in any guy who want's a robot to robot blow off.

    Now S2000 is not competing with WRX, but Porsche Boxter, Z3, TT, SLK320 maybe even M-Coupe ;-\

    So let us take scooby out of the picture and compare other cars with the S2000.

    Oh! And looks do count. S2000 is babe magnet... WRX is not (Only to babes who'll get on top of you and make you shout 'Say my name B!@ch ! ) <!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: What should i get?

    A 2nd generation eclipse GSX is great, AWD, turbo-charged, 0-60 mph in 6.2 secs, and beatiful. Since mitsubishi doesn't produce them anymore, you might need to get a second-hand car for a cheap price. I recommend it over the 3rd generation models because they acclerate slower, 0-60 mph in 7.3 secs but they are beautiful though.

    For that matter... why not just wait and buy a friggin' Lancer EVO VII when it hits the american market?<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: What should i get?

    The problem with lancers is that their really ugly i mean probably even uglier then the wrx so lancers are out of the question. lol
     
  25. Re: What should i get?

    ok first of all someone back there said mustangs have I-6's. GAWD I WISH!!! no they have shitty v-6's.

    with that out of the way down to the point. mr and mrs. trans ams, you're idiots. witht he right driver the S2000 will smoke the trans ams. WRX's are nice but are slightly worse than the S2000's except that awesome AWD :D Bottom line though WRX's are ugly. dude, just go with the S2000 if u have the money. they are awesoem cars.
