"How do you like the Musiclink?"
Musiclink w/ the Honda TTS Software is pretty cool. The software allows you to search for music by Playlist, Artist, Genre, & Album using text to speech commands over the radio. Choose your mode, then listen for a category, and then select it. 10x better than just a plain old Aux in IMHO.
"Also - tell me about the hardtop - are you glad you got it? What did that cost? I looked into it a little bit, and it was hard to find any good info on it - is $3000 the list price?"
Paid $3000 online and had it shipped to Honda dealer for install. Honda billed me for 2hrs for install at $85/hr. I'm sure a body shop could do it for less, but since the part is OEM, I wanted Honda to be responsible. I love the hardtop. It looks fabulous inside and out. Feels like a coupe for the winter months. Also it significally improves the blind spot on the drivers side. It may be pricey, but I highly recomend it.

Thanks for the feedback. What you say makes a lot of sense. Think I'll forget about used and work on the best new deal I can find.

Well, I found a new 2006 for $29,000 over the weekend. I'm now the happy owner of a silver S2000! Can't wait for warmer weather.

Congratulations on a great deal. I paid $32,000 for a 2002 in November of 2001, drove it for 2.5 years and 20k miles and traded it for $23,200, which I consider an very good deal for a lot of fun. Given your purchase price, you will likely do quite a bit better.
By the way, were there 2007's available and, if so, what were they asking on those?

Thanks. I was happy with the price. Had another offer for $29,300 so the dealers seem motivated to move the remaining 2006's.
There are 2007's available. Since there are no differences between the 2006 and 2007, and I tend to keep cars a long time , I didn't seriously price a 2007. At $29,000 I had reached about the limit of what I was willing (and able) to pay for a car I won't be driving every day.

I work at a dealership and leases are not always a bad deal they just usually are. You just have to negotiate the deal as you would a purchase. Look at actual residual values, not the ones the dealer gives you, then add up your total payments and money down, then see if its a good deal. Remember to ask about their dint and ding policy because some are atrocious. It is ridiculous to think that someone would drive a car for several years and not get a scratch on it. If anyone in the Dallas area needs any help at all let me know, no one can beat me on a deal, period.

The latest CarDeals newsletter (www.checkbook.org) reports $2000 dealer cash incentives on 2007 S2000's.
#267 of 420 Anyone recommend a dealer in/near CO that makes great deals?
Apr 06, 2007 (1:54 pm)
I keep hearing about people getting new S2K's for 29K + fees, and I am wondering if anyone can recommend a dealership in or around Colorado that is making these great deals. I want to lease for 36 months with 0 down, and open to 48 months, if it makes sense.
With the current S2K promotion the best deal I have been able to get so far today is:
0 down, 36 month lease, 12k per year, $470 month + tax
0 down, 48 month lease, 12k per year, $430 month + tax
Price of vehicle: $30,787.16
These payments are based on Honda Finance leasing, with super preferred tier.
If I can get the car at Invoice - $2000 + $595 lease acquisition fee = $423.66 + tax, I would lease it right away. Anyone know where I can get a deal like this? Thanks in advance for any input.
