Hi All, Since parting ways with my 1999 Honda Prelude 2.2 vti back in 2016 for personal reasons as most of you already know, I have always missed having a project and the screaming antics of a Honda high revving NA VTEC engine. My 6 years no claims bonus on a 2nd vehicle was due to expire, so it was now or never to purchase another VTEC machine. Despite my on-going situation I decided to bite the bullet and get one as it was now or never, I contemplated hard in getting another Honda Prelude but this time though I thought I would try and purchase a VTEC machine that I have always lusted after, an "S2000" The S2000 has always been one of my favourite Honda's (with the exception of the NSX), it has that legendary F20 engine, probably one of the best gearboxes in the automotive world and a body that has aged extremely well over time When they first came out back in 1999, I knew one day I had to have one. However, over the past several years their values have been steadily increasing with a facelift 2005 model now reaching around £13k. After viewing over 4 S2000's, I realised that most S2000's out there are actually in quite poor condition. People tend to buy them, keep them for a year or so and then sell them on to gain from its increase in value. With that, anything over 10k in my opinion is far too much to pay for a toy. I then started to look at the older pre-facelift models. Being so close to my NCB deadline, I managed to find and bag one for a good price due to it needing some work, however overall it is in great shape. The body is in superb condition and the car does feature original facelift version 2 alloys. The only upgrade are the speakers, which will be removed and reverted back to originals. The driving experience is so different to any Honda I have driven, the rawness of the S2000 coupled with its superb gearbox and that 9k RPM limit engine makes you feel like you're in a racing car. When you push that engine and work those gears the car just puts a smile on your face every time. The previous owner has had the car standing for quite some time, the usual suspects need addressing. This includes: -Flaky rocker cover -Brake discs and pads -Seized rear callipers -Very slight rust appearing on the lower rear quarter of the side sill -Clutch is slightly worn -Will need a fresh service (all fluids) Due to it being an early pre 2001 model, I would need to install a CAT 1 alarm system. The pre 2001 models only came with a factory immobilizer. No plans for any modifications, the car will be more of a project restoration with the odd genuine OEM accessory upgrade. Some images from the advert. Will be starting a project log soon. My S2000 journey begins.
