I had an 07
White with the red/black interior

Nice little car. Not impressive at all today and not really that exciting even back when I had it but top down driving is fun
Yeah...it's slow af around town. Almost undriveable in the summer with the a/c on. :o

I'm looking at an SoS supercharger but that's not gonna really help out around town either.

So are S2000's the new miata?

Miata's are Miatas because there were so goddamn many of them so you could get one cheap. It was unique because they weighed like 2200 pounds.

S2000 is comparable to a Mazdaspeed Miata.

S2k's run insanely well on tight California tracks also. Miata's need some work to get it track ready.

I would love to have access to a good shop. Turbo 350hp/300tq and the car would be perfect. I just don't trust any of the local shops :(

The SoS stage 1 kit is appealing because there's no cutting required and I can do it in my garage.

Late night summer top down, no music, WOT… there was something magical about it.


I almost balled mine up within the first 3 minutes of driving it. Me and @Chirp08 were hungover as fuck and snap oversteer handed me my ass but I saved it at the last second :o

Man it would have been super awkward when the dude who sold it to you found out he left the scene of an accident of the car you had yet to take delivery of.. :hmm:

The car was filthy and still loaded with swirls. For the life of me, I can't determine why someone would put all season tires on one of these. It's so quiet at idle that I keep thinking it has stalled at red lights.

I bought mine with Conti DWS all seasons from the original owner (75yr old guy) and he daily drove it, year round. Including the few times it snowed in NC.

I sent him an email a year ago with updated pics with it cleaned up and he was still smitten lol

Wrong. Everyone's favorite ballade has an oem rep in aluminum.

Ballade has a horrid reputation from everything I've read about them... their customer service is terrible and a quick search on their hardtop shows more complaints than praise.

I am not defending them but they do get lots of hate just from people piling on. The reddit thread you saw on your quick Google search isn't even for the aluminum one.
