What is an S500? Is it a quarter of an S2000? If so, what does 'S' equal too?

It's a nice car. If I had a S-class though I wouldn't modify it. Maybe just some nice wheels for it that's about it.

Who cares about bumpy? The stock suspension will be able to take it.

But I don't think it'll be as bumpy as our cars now right?

The stock suspension will still be quite comfortable.

Default about the S 500

I am a international student. The S 500 is my parent's, I goto school and go out with it. I have to say, it's a great car, 300+ V8 solid power. It really goes. There is really nothing much you can compain about it. After all, its wroth 140K with all the hight tech stuff that no one really uses ( beside show off to girls). About two weeks ago, it was raining, I was trying to beat this WRX, stock. I though it would be a walk in the park base on past experience with other cars, Type R, BMW etc. At this 30 digree right turn, the WRX is going @ apx 120km, then I speed up to 130km to try to beat him, then he speed up to 160km. Right when I hit 140km, my tail went left, then ESP kick in, with the flashing lights, then I started to fish tail on the road. Lucky, there weren't any traffic and I saved it in time. This was the 2nd time I lost to WRX, the first time was with my gf's C320. And this is the very same reason why I'm buying a WRX.

Because the places for MB or BMW is different for Jap. thats why I wanted to know.

Ok...as we've said...for Imprezas go to:

Technik Motorwerks
A&J Racing
PDM Racing

For Benz stuff (kits, wheels, etc) go to:
Technik Motorwerks

And no offense, but you're nuts for trying to take on a WRX in the rain with your car.

The first one, I try to catch up with my gf's C320, is bule, dark tinted window, 18" rims, HKS or Apexi N1. Have 2 gauges on the A pillar. Sometimes is a girl driver, sometimes is a guy. Stay around Coquitlam area.
The one in the rain, is mostly bone stock, only changes is the exhaust, but sound crappy, looks like non-brabded.
