    The fact that anyone owns an NSX should be enough for the next owner to give them good grace.

    I suppoe it is very easy to be over critical of other people's cars, especially if you are fortunate to start with one that is perfect (or new!) - at the end of the day they are just that, cars, and meant to be enjoyed from the inside more than most in the NSXs case! I would say your only fault it not driving it enough by the sounds of it!

    Come on bring it along to Castle Coombe and keep all our pride and joys company!

    Hi Matt (et al) the NSX was a gift to myself after 25 years of grind and agonising over GT2/3 v F355/360 v early Gallardo, clincher was when a buddy bought an F550 for 55k, did 3k in 15 months but spent 11.5k in service costs. Have had lots of good (company car) metal over the years inc; 84 Lotus Esprit Turbo, 85 911 Carrera sport, Merc 500SLC, etc. I now buy cars but find it difficult to part with them (moved from being an expenditure item to asset). I now have 7 cars (4 of which I bought at less than 2 years old) and cost over 130k in folding readies (I really do have a problem).

    I really should get out more and would be interested in the Castle Combe event. When is it?

    Japfest is the 19th of May (Saturday) details are here

    Would be great to have you along as well, I don't think we have many facelift NA2's coming at the moment.

    So what other cars do you have. 130k sounds a lot, but not really that much for 7 cars.

    Cars I drive at the moment (4 of them) set me back 56.5k and the newest was 4 years old, I hate the initial depreciation but 'might' buy something new soon.

    Hi Matt

    in addition to the 04 LBB NSX I currently have the following:

    Daily Motorway Cruiser: 01 Audi S8 (had for nearly 4 years)
    Fantastic Qcar runabout: 06 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT.
    Ratbag Ragtop (missus keep happy, me keep NSX): 04 Saab 9.3 Convertable.
    01 Fiat Punto LX: (number one daughter)
    98 VW Polo: (number two daughter).
    99 Suzuki Jeep Softop: (kids beach car).

    You can see where the money is spent of course and the insurance is crippling but what the hell! Now we have the new emmissions tax to support. Any bright ideas on how to mitigate these costs?

    I think I might be able to wangle the Japfest trip as I am in the process of buying a flat in Devon and could combine two things together.

    cheers

    Thought I'd bump this thread as someone at Brands Hatch was asking about the 'Lipstick' coloured NSX - Monza Pearl?
    See post #7.
