Hello and thanks for reading!

2002 Grand Prix White Honda S2000
Rare full red interior!
118,300 miles (daily driven so it will be going up slowly)
VIN: JHMAP11472T000102

I am the vehicle's fourth owner and have owned it since last summer. This car is so much fun but I want a truck or a WRX wagon! Time to get out into nature more and that's one thing she can't do.  I would prefer to sell to someone from the Northeast but will help a distant buyer to arrange shipping of the vehicle if requested.  Payment by cash/cashier's check or bank check is acceptable.

Mods:
-Gunmetal metallic SSR Integrals forged 17" staggered rims with black lugs (full set of stock rims included)
-1 month old Bridgestone RE-11a's (amazing grip, low noise, excellent in wet)
-Eibach Pro springs, 1.5" drop
-Eibach front sway for neutral handling
-AEM cold air intake with AFE Pro Dry S dry filter
-Invidia Q300 70mm dual SS exhaust (stock exhaust included)
-Rear axle spacers
-AP2 rear differential with slightly higher gear than stock (forgot exactly what ratio)
-Brand new soft top with glass rear window only used for one and a half summers
-35% tinted side windows
-Rick's smoked side markers
-S2000 side badges deleted
-Blue convex rear view and side mirrors (helps with top-up blind spots and lights)
-Tall tinted fold up privacy insert for between seat backs by Rick's
-Plastic inserts for seat helmet holes by Rick's (helps with wind noise by the ears)
-Fully insulated front door panels with upgraded woofers, tweeters and passive crossovers.
-Custom gunmetal badges to match rims
-Front license plate hole fillers in white
-Cool white LED cabin, trunk, license plate and backup lights
-Custom fitted subwoofer box for 12" (fits in tool cutout in trunk floor and takes up no space!)
-Alpine headunit
-Modifry globe box organizer
-Modifry soft top fix
-Modifry side marker mod and LED bulbs (not installed)
-Modify dash mount (not installed)

Cons:
-I went ahead and checked the Carfax and apparently the car has been in 3 accidents! This is really unfortunate to find out, but I would not have known it if it wasn't written out for me. Apparently the first two were fender benders and the last one popped the airbags.  The frame is perfectly fine, no rust on any joints or problems with the undercarriage, handles like a go kart and alignment is great. The body panels involved in the crashes have all been replaced and resprayed and there is not a drop of rust on it, which I suppose is braggable for a car from the Northeast. Ask me any questions about this and I'll be happy to answer them or send you the screenshots of the Carfax report.

-Some gears sound a little "crunchy". They have been like this since I got the car last summer. This does not happen on all gears! I want to clarify that this "crunchiness" is a sound not really a feeling and it has yet to affect the performance of a shift. No gears have slipped or missed... It sounds like worn synchros, but still functions fine, ironically smoother with more spirited driving.

-Left door panel tweeter grille is missing. I was in the process of installing the upgraded tweeters and due to my own miscalculations I made a mistake that left the grille modified but unusable in the current project. The right side is unaffected.

-Cracked plastic panel under the passenger side dash, barely noticeable in normal driving.

-Some rubbing on large bumps from driver's side rear tire... Went from 225s in rear to 235s and that plus the slightly wider offset of the new rims pushed it out a bit too far. Fenders have been rolled already but that side needs more work.

Thanks for looking and good luck!

Acura NSX prototype gets back on track

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:30:00 EST

Developing a new vehicle is not without its complications, we're sure, but usually things follow a fairly predictable progression: you develop a prototype, you test it, test it and test it again, then you put it into production. What you don't expect is that your prototype will burn to the ground, but that's what famously happened to the NSX which Honda engineers were testing a few months ago.
Fortunately, the Acura NSX prototype is back on track, both literally and figuratively, as you can see from this latest batch of spy shots snapped at the Nürburgring. This camouflaged prototype looks pretty much the same as the last one, only, you know... less crispy. Which is to say, it looks pretty much ready to hit showrooms.
The naysayers may point out that Honda chose colder and damper weather to put the NSX back into testing - thereby mitigating the risk of another fire - but we're sure the Japanese automaker has been working hard to fix the flammability issues, whatever may have caused them, over the past few months. At least, we hope they have.

Honda showcases the letter R in cool new ad campaign

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 19:54:00 EST

Okay Honda, you've won the Internet for the week. This cool "double-sided" video, featuring the new Civic and Civic Type R Concept, is one of the more interesting YouTube spots we've seen.
On the surface, "The Other Side" shows a regular dad, simply going about his day and picking his daughter's up from school. But press the "R" key while watching the video, and it transitions into an alternate video. The dad is now in a Civic Type R Concept, and he's not on the school run. Instead, he's involved in something... a bit more devious.
We won't spoil the ending, but suffice it to say, you'll want to watch this video through to its conclusion. Also, because of the unique nature of this video, we can't embed it here, so you'll need to hop over to Honda's UK YouTube channel.

Andretti Autosport switches to Honda power

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 08:29:00 EST

The IndyCar grid was split pretty evenly this season between Honda and Chevy power. Thing is, most of the front-running teams have been running Chevrolet engines. Except for Chip Ganassi Racing, the team that fields the likes of Ryan Briscoe, Scott Fixon and Dario Franchitti - but earlier this month Chip Ganassi announced it was switching to Chevy engines too, just like most of the other pack-leading teams.
Honda insisted it didn't need a flagship team to replace Ganassi, but that's exactly what it announced this weekend with the signing of Andetti Autosport. The team run by Michael Andretti won a few IndyCar Series titles under Honda power (in 2004, 2005 and 2007), and two Indy 500 wins (in 2005 and 2007), but switched to the Bowtie two seasons ago, winning the championship last season. But the vast majority of the team's victories - 39 out of 48 race wins - have been powered by Honda, and the two outfits undoubtedly hope they'll return to the winner's circle again with their new multi-year partnership that takes effect next season.
