Default Honda S2000 or Mercedes C230?

I know that they're not even the same type of car, but everyone wants to have both a luxury sedan and a sports car. they're around the same price range. If you were single which would you get. No stupid comments please.

Mercedes. It is a better quality vehicle and will have a higher resale value if you decide to sell it

If I were single, I would get the S2000. The repair bills are far less and the aftermarket parts to "individualize" my S2000 far excede those of the C230. The S2000 is a blast to drive.

While both cars are very nice, id reccomend the Honda S2000. The Honda will be cheaper to fix, cheaper to insure, and overall cost of ownership is much less than that of Mercedes Benz. (and Mercedes is now owned by Diamler Chrysler) so would you prefer a pacifica or an R class. same car much different sticker price. I work at a Honda Dealer that also owns a Mercedes Dealership. The S2000 is comprable to the Porsche Caymen, BMW Z4, and other High Price "Luxary Sports Cars". So at 34,845.00 I'd personally rather have the S2000 and pay 30 an oil change as opposed to 300. If you do go for the Benz I reccomend the E350 4MATIC. Let me also add that Honda has the best Residual Value (resale value) in North America. (Study done by Intellichoice www.intellichoice.com )

Dude if you love driving then you can never go wrong with the S2K. It's like a motorbike on four wheels and perhaps the best car in the world for what its worth.The C230 as most European cars is overpriced and sluggish though the sedan may be more practical in the long run as opposed to the roadster.Have fun shopping

Go with the Honda - unless you like spending time without a car because it's in the shop. I just got the new 2007 Consumer Reports Auto Buying guide and Mercedes was consistently a poor performer (across all models).Honda was rated as one of the highest performers (Again across all models).
