  • Beaumonters?

    Noobie here. Just bought the Suzuka Blue '04 that was at Carmax in Houston. I only drove one other S2, it was an '06 and didn't get to drive it very far with the salesman yakking in my ear the whole time. Anyone know the history of my car? It apparently was in the Deer Park / Pasadena area before Carmax.

    Anyone else in the Beaumont / Port Arthur / Orange area? I would like to compare notes. Seems that my idle is a little rough, clutch engagement is a little abrupt. Would like to get an idea where people take their cars for maintenance in these parts. I have a Honda Pilot also, the one time I took it to the dealer for maintenance (under warranty) I was not overly impressed. I have a drip of coolant showing up on the garage floor that needs attention, and I'm not inclined to work on it much myself.

    Thanks in advance.

                I actually saw him this past weekend. He drove down from Beaumont to meet me at Curt's. I sold him my exhaust.

                He's been too busy with work and his new girlfriend to post or go to TWS.

                Let's see if he responds....

                    That's how it usually happens. Girlfriend comes in and everything else becomes a faded memory.
                    Thanks,
                    Joe

                            That would be cool. Someone pick a date and a place.

                            I've seen a grey, a black (for sale), and a white one in town. Saw a yellow in Port Arthur. Have not seen your blue/gold wheels, but I'll be on the lookout.

                            I just filled up for the 3rd time. Mileage went like this:
                            * first fill up-18 (the tank probably wasn't full when tripmeter was reset by dealer),
                            * second fill up-26 (back and forth to work and around town),
                            * third fill up-29! This was about 250 miles of highway driving, usually around 72-73 mph, a little more at times.

                            Where do you Beaumonters take your car for maintenance? Clutch adjustment? Fluids? Nothing major, just preventive maintenance for the most part since I don't know the history of the car.

                              Yes definately. If all you Beaumonters would pm me your numbers I will pm mine back and next time we do a little drive, I will give you guys a call. I may plan a little meet sometime in the near future for our area.

                                  yzer, saw a blue S2K Thursday afternoon on Phelan, I think. I should have had the top down. Was it you?

                                  Also saw a dirty red S2K at Wal-Mart in Beaumont last night.

                                    sorry I have been out of town for a couple days. That was more than likely me. Mine is the one with gold wheels and t1r sparrow exhaust.
