Thanks to you both. I am quite hesitant to take on the headaches attached to any turbocharged engine after the experience I alluded to on my 850. Needless to say any turbo is a wear item like brakes and clutches but even at the decent prices I got replacing mine at less tha 100K miles hurt. And now it is probaby due again at 180K.
I certainly do not mind manual systems, i prefer it in this case. The S2000 does have electric windows but besides the top otherwise it is manual. My commute is all freeway but the ironic thing here in Northern CA is that most days it is stop and go anyway. But I do have the S2000 and the 850 to satisfy my acceleration needs.
Thanks again and I look forward to more of your knowledgable insights.
