    I love the s2000 for it's pimp factor. I love the exhaust note on the 350z. Solara... not even a choice. I'm a little biased, but I'll choose the s2k. My brother has one, it is a very nice ride. Great tight handling and great top-end. Reving to 9k is insane!

    Ive never owned a honda... but have owned a Maxima.

    I chose the S2k with the hardtop convert because it looks good bot with the top on or off. Another option would be ther JDM Blue softtop for the s2k which is also slick.

    Am i crazy?

    I'd rather stare at my own vomit then look at a 350z with its softtop on.

    note: I do love the Z coupe tho!

    I don't know if you guys have noticed it, but the solara convertible... looks very similar to a Lexus SC430.

    We looked at a 350Z Convertible here last fall. Wife wanted to stop and see it.

    Looked really nice in gray with a black top. I've not cared much for the other color combinations. This one was an auto, ahd a wheel tire upgrade, and nav system. Stickered for $41k

    Nothanksseeyalater!

    Missing from the list was what could be a potent little performer: the new MazdaSpeed Miata 180+ HP in a 2600 pound roadster could be a blast. Some consider Miata to be chic cars, but this one has me saying, hmmmm.

    S2000. The 350z is the antithesis of a sports car. I miss the days of lightweight tossable cars, now all we have are heavy pigs with big engines and luxury.

    S2000 for me.

    The ragtop 350 hit every branch on the ugly tree.

    I like the Z as a hard top...Cant stand it in the vert form...it just doesnt look right...maybe it needed the targa top that some of the 300zx's had.

    The s-2000 just has a silly stance and looks really nice. I would want a turbo on the little monster to make up for the lack of low end. Would be a nice ride.

    I've always liked balanced, quick, affordable roadsters. I've always admired the S2000 for everything but its lack of torque.

    I'd definitely opt for a new Z ragtop. I think it looks even better than the hardtop. I'm sure it can cook even in the twisties beyond my abilities. I bet it has nice torque down low as well as a decent top end. And I suspect it'll take to mods very respectably.

    On second thought -- although it's not Japanese -- I think I'll go for an Elise instead.

    S2000, hands down best performer of the three. Not sure, but I think that was the first time a Solara has been mentioned at this forum.

    Missing from the list was what could be a potent little performer: the new MazdaSpeed Miata 180+ HP in a 2600 pound roadster could be a blast. Some consider Miata to be chic cars, but this one has me saying, hmmmm.
    Has anyone actually seen a Mazdaspeed Miata? Look at the intercooler, it's so little and cute, it's practially pocket sized.
