    What do we think of these? This car topped the JD Power survey for a couple of years running - got to be good:

    Great car at the right time on the right bit of road, however, it is all about revs

    My opinion is that Honda engines are great. Respect for these high revs engines.

    You found that too?
    I'm 6'3" and found I didn't have enough legroom in it.

    Shame...as I really fancied one.

    I love them. Nearly bought a white 04 plate import that'd had turbo conversion last yr. Was a really good price. It'd been involved in a very minor accident. Just needed a tiny bit of panel work/paint.

    I went home to think about it. Phoned about about 2hrs later to say i'd have it & somebody else had been & put a deposit on it shortly after i'd left!! Bloody typical!!

    Wasn't fussed for 2 long tho as I ended up buying the Evo shortly after:arco:

    You have to respect the Great Engine and Faultless Reliability. Does that make it cool? or perhaps to boring?

    I think it's cool, it is a thinking mans roadster.

    Exactly the same here - I went with my mind made up to buy one. Couldn't fit in the thing to give it a test drive (6'4''). Gutted at the time - not so gutted now.

    :scared2: controversial!

    I had a 20min blast in one a few years back and thought it was great. Bit more ordinary inside that I was expecting.

    Whether its cool or not is another matter.
    Each to their own I suppose.

    It's had it's day now in my eyes, and really hasn't aged well.

    Just sold a mint one, didn't have it long, hits 9k rpm, mine had mods done so very quick but changed it for a more relaxing car. I had an induction kit on it which sounded mad but you look like a lunatic doing 6 to 9k rpm to get the noise and in London that's impossible, but it wont breakdown and has few things to worry about.

    I've had a new 2002 and 2005 S2000, in std and GT variant, loved them both so my answer is subzero :)
