    was an EG civic i think..
    Suprisingly I like the Civic.
    The white skyline is nice, but someone should tell the owner of the black one that only bosozukus go without grilles.

    I like this one except for the exhaust.
    No car should have more exhaust pipes than cylinders, and no car should have exhaust pipes whose volume(not sound volume, L x W x H volume ) is greater than the engine's.

    177hp from the stock 2.4 seems kinda weak. probably has a good torque though. and those engines have been around long enough to get a good aftermarket it seems - certainly capable of handling some boost by the look of it.

    -> Let me share my side of the story.

    -> As the current driver of the S2000. I'm 6'3 and I do fit just fine, it only take few 'just right' adjustments. Sure the S is a bit harsh/noisy/cramped/small for some, but personally I don't mind. I like the total feel of the car that the Z fails to replicate. The Z feels a lot heavier, it has that 'refined' feel that I normally disliked. And based on my past test drive with the Z feels somewhat disconnected with its steering and wallowing body motions. The torque from that V6 is sure tasty treat, but overall it did little to impress me. Although the Z was easier to drift overall compared to any S.

    -> Sure, the Z is an easier to drive on every day, but it was not for me overall. The S2000 may be harsher, smaller, and torqueless, I just don't care any of these imperfections. The smile I always get everyday on my S is irreplaceable. No other car that you can name; E46 M3, '07 STI, Evo VIII/X, 996 GT3, C6 (LS2), and Z3 M could deliver the same fun factor that brings a smile to my ugly face.

    ^ And my S is N/A, with only a CAI & CAT-back exhaust (that was included w/ the car when I got it).

    BT-> On the choices above, I would go N/A S2K. Just because the car is perfect as it is, I definitely don't want to spoil any of its perfect balance my car has to offer.
