Against my better judgement, I'm gonna subscribe to this thread. The E30 thread made me feel like I need one already. A few more S2k pic posts and I'll be needing one of those as well.
And people hate the S2000 too, just not as much from what I can tell.
The power is the big problem for some folks, at least the S2000 makes HP up top.. The S2000 would literally beat the BRZ by about 10 car lengths in the 1/4 mile for example, and the S2000 isn't even that fast going straight..
People will find something to complain about with everything.
It's funny because I actually like downshifting and rev matching, its a blast with this thing. My old Mazdaspeed3 made way more torque than the S2, but I prefer the S2000 power delivery.. It is not fun to rev to 5800 RPM and need to shift.
S2000's were not 40K either, MSRP of $32K when they first sold.
Anyway, you took my quote out of context and it means nothing. I was answering why perhaps more hate is geared towards the BRZ vs the S2000.
Congratulations, maybe you have a future in politics.
The test of the machine is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn't any other test. If the machine produces tranquility it's right. If it disturbs you it's wrong until either the machine or your mind is changed.
