See that bulge on the right? That's for the spare tire - if you take out the spare tire and leave that panel off, suddenly you gain a lot more space. I put all my groceries in there. =)

Also, if you look at the bottom of that picture, that's where your emergency toolkit goes. Take that out and you get a bunch more space too.

And finally if you really need the space, you gain a LOT by taking out the trunk lining. I almost fit my entire snowboard in there; I was maybe two inches off with my 156mm board.

^ That first time it snowed here last year I was actually excited to go to school early in the morning just to be able to use my snow tires. I have the same ones as you and they're awesome in snow.

Good tip on the trunk linings. I haven't tried that one yet!

I've DD an s2k for 3 years, close to 4 now. Few things that may entertain/bother you:

1.) Road noise, wind, or just general noise
2.) 2 Seater
3.) Not much room in the cabin, BUT the trunk has been more than enough for my daily needs
4.) Cheap to maintain, the past 3/4 years i've only had to change the rear wheels bearings on one of the s2k and the clutch. Gas is very comparable to an RSX, so its pretty decent for a sports roadster
5.) Stock s2k is a monster truck, you'll have plenty of ground clearance to commute around town.
6.) Snow shouldn't not even be an issue. Look at this year, it was supposed to snow a lot, and it only snowed hard for about a week or two in total. Either you take the transit or use other methods of transportation during those time periods, and you'll be fine. If you have the money, go for hardtop, if not, softtop will do just fine.
7. Regardless if you get AP1/AP2, its a car you have to finesse, from simple as shifting and how the car handles.

All this talk about the s2000 makes me wanna hop into a 2 seater again. But I'm addicted to the space in my hatchback.

+1 but does anyone actually check their spare to make sure it's still road worthy?

My spare has been used once in 9 years, I would rather have BCAA tow me to a tire shop than risk driving on it.

You can fit 2 golf bags in the trunk.



If you need more space, then you shouldn't be looking at a roadster.

I don't think you should worry about the 'snowy days' in your choice. If it's really bad out just take public transit.

You can fit a lot...just need to be creative

Here are some funnies, good luck with your purchase.

That's what I'm leaning towards. I think I end up saving around $1-2g after import duties, taxes, and fees.

Yeah too bad it's lame shit DBW, soft suspension, low reving AP2.

Who cares if a car is Canadian or American? They are the exact same.

Though GPW on red is a decent combo.

I really encourage you to drive both ap1 and ap2 before you buy.

What colour are you looking for? I really need to go try them out for sure. Just need to find one available for me to do so.

Levitron I'm thinking the same.

Are you going to sell the MS3?

I'd think MS3 + S2K would be best of both worlds for me.

It takes a week (at most) to get used to the cramped interior, but after that initial shock, nothing else beats it. I'm selling mine now but I have no doubt that I'll be looking for another one in the future.
