#339 of 638 Invoice for '06 S2000
Feb 21, 2006 (4:42 am)
Please assist with my attempt to verify Invoice price for '06 S2000 of $30,633(Edmunds) + $550(shipping)= $31,183. I have read another post stating Invoice for '06 is $31,333.49 and hold-back is $1,021.50, with the statement, "dealership has $30,311.99 invested in the car." I may make on offer in March for an '06. Also, I called Honda 'customer assistance' to learn when the last batch of '06 S2000s would be produced in Japan, and none of assistants could confirm that 2006 was last year for S2000. Thank you in advance and best regards.

That mileage will rise during breakin. What kind of route did you go? Lot of stoplights?

The seats have been redesigned for the 06' model. They may be a smidge wider. I personally find my 04' seats to be the most supportive, comfortable ones this side of Volvo

Those voodoo kits are awesome. I was pondering the same thing for my car.

eehh, a mix, really - my commute is only 8 - 9 mi, with a good long stretch of about 3 mi, 4-lane, straight to a gate. Mostly also tooling around the area, w/some 4-lanes n stoplights, some in 35-ish areas thru neighborhoods. Trying to do the proper thing by varying RPMs during breakin period...not over 5500, of course, per the manual.
#344 of 638 Spare Donut on Front - Pulls to the right - Is it normal?
Feb 28, 2006 (12:46 pm)
I got my 2002 S2K (24500 Miles, Hardtop, Formula red, Grille Inserts, Injen Cold airflow intake, meticulously cared for) ten days ago.
Being the SUV driver that I have been almost all my driving years, I ran the front right wheel into a tiiiny pot hole (which was big enough for an S2000, apparently ) and scraped the wall of the tire and promptly blew it. New tire is in order at BJs- I am now riding with the spare donut on the front(?!) passenger side. It has been inflated to about 36 PSI of air; My question is this : I feel that it kind of pulls to the right and if I take my hands off the steering wheel, I am definitely dragging to the right. Is that normal with the donut (which of course is smaller) or did I also manage to knock the alignment off??
Even if that is the case, I realize it is not a big deal, but it just feels miserable seeing my poor baby acting imperfect, no thanks to my own carelessness ....

Sorry about the misfortune.. I've been trying to be careful too, esp about curbs w/the low front air scoop...wish it was about .5in higher
bet the pull is usual, should return to normal w/correct tire/wheel - donut is temp only, don't drive too long

I'm on the harder extreme of driving. I've tested 3 sets of tires, and I can tell you the Hankook K-series work very well. I burned the Potenzas in 10K miles. I burned a set of Kumhos in 5K. The Hankooks I have on now have lasted 15K so far, and they still have a long way to go.
Btw, my S is supercharged, so tirewear is considerable with my application. Your results will definately vary. I would expect 20K-30K with the Hankooks with conservative driving. Make sure you get a 420 treadwear rating!

A high performance tire with a 420 treadwear rating??
I would have thought that was impossible. Are they "W" or "Y" rated? Where did you get them. I am still quite a ways from needing new tires on my 911, but I'd like to check them out. Tire Rack does not list the Hankook brand.
