Default Honda s2000? Should I get one?

Okay so I been looking to getting a car n I really like the honda s2000 but the problem is that too find one is hard n they cost alot !! For a 09 s2k it's about 27,000 with 46miles when I can get like a 370z or 350z or something Aroud that range but then again not everyone has a s2k n the after market parts are pretty cheap but is this car that u will drive n wake u up in the morning n fun to drive compared to a z ? Any thoughts ?

It is cute, and exceptionally high performance for a small engine, but I would look at the Z first, as a serious car. The Miata is a lot cheaper than the s2000, if that kind of roadster interests you

First that should be noted is that the s2000 and 350z/370z both use premium gas and have very similar mpg which takes out the fuel economy as a factor.

The fun factor is essentially the same for both cars in terms of making you want to for a joy ride with it.

S2K does have cheaper aftermarkets than the 350z/370z.

In most areas a nissan 350z/370z is looked at with higher esteem than a honda s2000.

My personal opinion: Even though the nissan is less original it still looks super sporty and nice. I dont think the honda s2000 looks all that special even if it was the only one in the local area.

Final Verdict: It's honestly up to you both cars are very similiar except for some minor details; no matter which one you pick you wont be disappointed

Having driven the cars, the 350z is much more expensive to modify and maintain because it has more cylinders, uses more gas, and has long labor hours for some common work. Changing the clutch on a 350z will cost you $1500 in labor, $600 in parts.

The Honda S2000 is a 4 cylinder so maintenance is cheaper, gas is better, you get Honda's amazing reliability, not that the 350z is unreliable. It is also a reliable car. A clutch job on a Honda will cost you $900-1000 total parts and labor. Half the price of a 350z.

Now, in terms of driving. The S2000 is easier to dirve with its lighter steering, smoother shifting, and smoother engine. The 350z is tougher. It has heavier steering, heavy clutch, shifting that throws you back in your seat, and it is harder to park with its poor visibility and long hood and wide body.

The S2000 is a better car, even if it costs so much more.
