What's up guys! My name's Alan, I'm a senior in Mechanical Engineering at USF in Tampa and I'm hoping to be a future FiST owner within the year.

I currently own a 2007 Honda S2000 and am in need of a fun daily driver. While I love my S to death, it's not the most practical car. It's loud, cramped, the leather Recaros are target for theft, I get no cupholders and I don't even have enough room in my trunk to fit a new laundry basket as my current one is broken. It's a purpose track car and that's 'bout it.

As soon as I heard about the FiST, I did some research and am pretty set on getting one. I'm no stranger to hot hatches as I've owned a 2010 Speed3 as well. What makes the FiST so appealing its driving dynamics. I'm a huge autocrosser, so handling is a must for me, and it seems the FiST is one of the best handling FWD cars available today in the U.S.. Its eagerness to get tossed into a corner and rip out of it is what sold me. It just looks so much fun to drive.....and has cupholders!

My vehicle history is:
1992 Volvo 960
2005 Honda S2000
2003 Honda S2000
2000 Civic
2006 Honda S2000
2009 Civic Si
2010 Mazdaspeed3
Current - 2007 Honda S2000 (I may or may not like these cars)
Future - 2015 FiST

Thank you all for reading rather lengthy intro post. I hope to be a part of this community and own one of these awesome pocket rockets soon!
P.S., if anybody lives in the Tampa area and wants to give me a test drive, I'll be more than happy to return the favor :p

Here's a pic of the current ride

Awesome, it's good to get some insight from fellow S2ker's. There is something quite unique about owning a s2k, that's the same feeling that drew me to the FiST. I rarely ever see them. To be honest, I've seen one on the streets since they came out and I almost rear ended the car in front of me because I kept staring at it, lol.

My other big concern is reliability. We both know the S2k is a beast when it comes to reliability and I'm hoping the FiST can provide me with the same experience.
