You'd probably get more of a valid response if you posted this in a BMW forum.
Do you just need transportation or do you need a BMW? Just b/c you may not drive much, you still have oil to change, insurance, etc and SUV's are more expensive to operate, IMO.

i was trying to red line my car but as soon as i hit seven thousand it just started bogging, i tried it again but it did the same thing, it wouldn't let me go to 9 thousand and then i notices a check engine light came up. why is this?

In no particular order:
1) Engine wasn't warmed up enough (3 bars at least) - built-in limiter will cut the gas until the engine is warm enough.
2) Bad Gas?
3) Clogged fuel filter/Fuel pump?
4) Did you put in 93 octane?
5) Low fuel?
Why are you purposely trying to redline it?

Bumping Redline is the core of the fun with the S2000... Trust me it can handle it, it was built to.
#1 could be the case if the bogging happened at a lower rev. That built-in limiter you mentioned happens at a lower point on the rev-band, I think somewhere around 3 grand. At 7,000, he is already in VTEC...
If the CEL light came on, O2 sensor issue would be my guess. Keep us posted.

Your S is male? Mine is all female!
Oh, I know the VTEC-ing is fun, just thought you might be doing it for a reason other than fun.
In my Baja, if I hit red-line, the fuel would shut off so violently that I'd just about hit my steering wheel with my face... ok, maybe not that extreme but sure felt like it.

Nah, mine's a "She" as well.
Baja, huh? Cool, I have a Subaru for a DD as well. Haven't gone to redline with that yet, although the boxer engine seems willing to. I'm just trying to keep the gas mileage up.
#15 of 18 s2000 bogging at 7k
Feb 08, 2008 (9:25 am)
hey the motor's bogging at 7k because it either isn't warmed up or most likely in this case (since it tripped a CEL) you need oil very bad. my 01 did the same thing well after it was warmed up. the motor runs at such a high compression rate to achieve that whopping 9000 rpm redline and if there was even a remotely insufficient amount of oil at 9k, the motor would blow within seconds... if you have any other questions about s2000's, feel free to jump on over to s2ki.com. we are s2000 enthusiasts and talk about s2k's, our ownership, our modifications, we go on group drives with other s2k owners, and a lot of the time, we just shoot the breeze with other owners/enthusiasts. so everyone should feel welcome to join. thanks, mason

My 06 S2000 has 73k miles on it and up to now i've had no problems and love the car! Now it feels sluggish with diminished power and this has nothing to do with octane,etc. I brought into the Honda dealer and they told me most of these cars need new cylinder heads before 100k. $4000 price tag!
Is this true? help!

When did you have a tune up? How many tanks of gas have you run with it acting sluggish?

i've never had a tune up since new. I did have the values adjusted at 44k miles. could it be as simple as new plugs?
