    William's S15 Spec R

    So unexpectedly this is where the story closes for the s15. Due to many issues I had to deal with personally owning the car, it's gone to a new home. The buyer has told me I do have first dibs if he does decide to sell the car, which I will definitely take him up on haha. He does lurk on these forums so maybe he will continue to keep us updated. Anyways this is me new car hehe

    I've had the s2k for about a month now and first thing I'll say is that it handles so well, I've taken it to the track and although at the time I was still getting familiar with the car, it was very confidence inspiring. The power is there but you really have to work through the revs to get it going. It's pretty fun putting your foot down, hearing all the induction noise only to realise you're still under the speed limit hahaha
    I have a soft spot for the s15 so I might be a little bias in my choice in saying it is still my preferred out of the two. It was a much more friendly daily in my opinion, besides the obvious extra space it was very subtle (my s15 was very quiet) but when you needed the power it was right there. It definitely doesn't handle as well as the s2k and whenever it would rain you'd see me take corners at a snail's
    pace but I blame the tyres more than anything haha.

    Long time no post but I thought I would revive this thread, I stated before that the buyer told me I do have first dibs if he ever decided to sell the car. Well I did take him up on that offer and the S15 will be coming back home in the next few weeks! So the build continues. As for the s2000 though, that has since been parted and now up for sale

    The s2000 in its former glory:
