    Thanks!

    Finally made it home last night, 600 mile drive home! To be fair, drove an extra 100 via scenic highways in central NY.

    I’d post more pics, but it attracted a LOT of bugs. I have time Monday to wash it down and get some Sonax on it....

    Engine definitely opened up a bit more at around 400 miles, short interstate pulls up to 4K got noticeably quicker. Figured since most of the break in miles were interstate (varying rpms, no cruise), I’ll give it another few hundred miles where I keep it under 5k or so...but I can already tell it’ll be easy to get into trouble!

    Sold my second S2000 in 2010 to make room for a vehicle that could fit 5, regret it to this day. I can already tell this one will be special too...

    More pics after I get it cleaned up!

    Traded the STI for the Type R. Love this color. It changes so much in different lighting. Looks matte in certain lights.

    Looks great. I’m putting money down on one today.

    Thoughts on the R vs. STI?

    The STI was a good car but the turbo lag bother me to a degree. I always had to drive around hard to get the most out of the engine. It’s a hard car to just cruise around town and commute as a daily especially with kids. With the R is such a great all around car. Fast when I want it to be and chill when I’m cruising and commuting. The mpg is also heads and shoulders above the STI. I’m getting about 10mpg better almost. STI gets about 17-18 combine on a good day. Then R rides so much better and a lot more comfortable, even in R mode. The STI always left me wanting more but I didn’t want to put money into it. The R is almost perfect from the factory. The STI feels raw though, very mechanical and old school and I do miss that about it. The steering rack is also better since it’s hydraulic but I forget about the STI every time I get in the R and I’ve only have it for 4 days.
