2007-Honda-S2000-in-Dubai-450x337 Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 gets paintless dent removal and paint protection
We have to say we’re pretty disappointed at Honda’s cosmetic durability. Maybe they do it better for Accords and Civics for all we know, but the S2000 has obvious signs of cost-cutting, not least of which is the thin body panels and the even-thinner paint. Read More >>
