Hi, everyone. My name is Kevin and I'm the happy owner of a MY04 Sebring Silver S2000. I purchased her on the 26th of December from my friend, Josh. An S2000 has been my dream car for, roughly, the last six years. I just completed my bachelor's degree about a month ago and decided it was time to finally pull the trigger. Sebring Silver is my favorite color aside from Imola Orange.
Now, on to more details about the car. The car itself has 147K miles and all ten VIN tags are present and matching. I performed a compression test with the help of another friend for some
peace of mind before committing to the purchase; the compression numbers were within spec, so I went ahead and closed the deal. Given that she's a 2004, with a good amount of miles on her, I knew that bringing her maintenance up to date should be my first priority, so that's what I've been working on thus far. I don't know what my end goals are just yet, but I definitely want to get the car setup for reliable fun at the racetrack.
When I purchased her, she had a muffler-deleted OEM exhaust system which I abhorred. I quickly rectified that abomination with a completely stock exhaust system. She also came with an AEM cold air intake installed which I will be swapping out for a stock intake because I don't really care for it and driving in the rain makes me very uncomfortable. The roads in Southern California were not
built with much rain in mind, so standing water can become an issue real fast. Overall, she's a little rough around the edges, but that just means I'll be able to enjoy the car with less worries about cosmetic flaws when I put her through her paces.
