I was thrilled to see my new tires reviewed up against the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in this month’s (May 2017) GRM, and even more thrilled to see them do pretty dang well against one of the premier street summer tires on the market - especially significant since the Pilot Sport tires are not offered for 16" wheels…
but that doesn’t mean I can’t benefit from those who do.
XJ pulled up next to me at a light. The plate?
I just came back from the NJ Meadowlands, where Cadillac had a driving sales event very similar to the Miata one I did a while back. Unfortunately we’re having torrential rain here, and they shut down all the driving sessions. Good on them for at least trying though.
I’ve seen a red 993 in the same spot.
Like many of us, when I bought my then-12-year-old Honda S2000, I quickly came up with a long list of improvements, repairs, etc. that I wanted to do. At this point I also encountered the brick wall of reality in that I don’t have time or money to do all of these right now, or even in the next couple of years. I was…
2016 was my first full year of ownership of my S2000, and I clay barred it midway through the year. I was really impressed with how much it cleared up the paint. This year, my goal was to apply polish and try to clear up the damaged clear coat on the trunk and hood as much as possible. After a lot of hemming and…
The leather and aluminum on the S2000's shift knob has been scratched up since I got the car. I’m generally OK with patina and not super anal about these things, but the central location and the fact that it’s the first thing I see getting in has always bothered me.
Yes! Finally vacuumed out the leaves and junk from both engine bays, S2000 and Sienna. Interesting, the S2000 had so much more because of all the little traps, whereas...
I’ve been on the fence about how far to go this year, but I just YOLO’ed about $400 worth of polishes & whatnot, including a Porter-Cable and accessories. Eager to see the extent to which I can correct some hazy clear coat on the S2000, along with the usual swirls and scratches. Too bad the repaint on the front bumper…
Photoshopped this up from a drawing I found; thinking of making some stickers and what not. What do y’all think?
This is the third year, all consecutive, that I’ve gone to the show, and each has been less impressive. Maybe that’s par for the course for an event that’s largely the same year to year, but I was disappointed. Also, some of the interesting stuff was new (to me) then - ND Miata, Ford GT, GT350, AMG GT, 2-Series...
Ahhhh finally... got my new tires and lug nuts on, after an oil and brake fluid change. Nice to actually scoot around corners hard under power and feel some understeer, instead of immediately losing the back end like with my crappy old all-seasons! Next stop: incremental hardcore detailing. This car is filthy.
And someone on Live with Kelly is standing in front of a Camaro ZL1 and explaining track days... she’s skeptical LOL

There are a bunch of deals this month, including a $70 debit card with purchase of a Continental set, which is good for the new ExtremeContact Sport - the successor to the DW. I was planning on getting this tire for the S2000, so, perfect timing.
Edit: I see someone already posted this an hour ago
driving in the wild - a white one, right around the Nutley/Lyndhurst border. I barely got a glimpse, but he must have seen me because he revved; or growled, as it were.
