Re: would you? (cyle313)

you are not going to see many positive respnses in here for that question. but since i see your location is only a few miles from mine. I can only say is if you get one i hope you gotta winter beater. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

like some other people said not as a DD... i havent seen one in the winter yet driving around on snow tries...
so if you got the extra cash laying around for one do it... but if not save for something bigger and better down the road after the GTI is paid of or what have you...

Trade your GTI in already? If you enjoy losing money, then by all means, go ahead. Regardless if you're upside down in your trade, or if you break even because of previous positive equity or cash down, you'll still be taking a hit.
But I agree, the S2000 is a fantastic piece of equipment, and if I could, I'd jump all over it. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

now that's a dumb response right there ^^ get a life.

Upsides to S2000: Manic attack engine response, perfect shifter, awesome weight balance, i actually like the interior, looks gorgeous, flawless handling. It's an amazing performer
Cons: Try driving one in winter. NJ roads are the suck too, potholes + stiff suspension and lopro tires = bent rims in a short time. Car is a beast on the highway, turns high revs at cruising speed despite the six speed, not practical at ALL, weak driveline (clutches and differentials are the suck.)
i mean it's a great sportscar but don't mistake it for a good DD.

i could have gotten an s2000 instead of the gti, but the down side is the winter. The other bad thing is the amount of room. I needed something with alittle more room . You will def love the car if you get it, so get what is best for you.

True sports car suspension and handling

Some might argue that the uncontrollable sudden snap oversteer that the s2k is known for might eliminate its membership in that particular club.

Re: (Mrb00st)

Depends on your driving style, man.
If you like the boy-racer feeling and you'd potentially take the car to the track once in a while I'd think the S2000 would be a little better suited for this purpose.

I can't say if I had a MkV GTI that it would be worth trading in though. Plus I don't fit too comfortably in an S2000 at 6'1".
Some people like racing their cars around - I don't like hearing the engine scream everytime I want to get power out of the engine, which I why I chose VW. The S2000 was designed to be more of a track car however, so if that's what you want, get it!
