Wow all this from someone who owns a Honda. I guess by your own definition, you are an idiot.

I wouldn't take any chances. I would spend the money now and buy a new coolant refill tank. It's probably a hundred bucks or so but I don't want remnants of oil going into my radiator, water pump, hose, thermostat, etc. You'll ruin a lot of stuff.

If it was Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945 the OP should probably be on the market for a Bugatti Veyron.
If it was Red Ripple 2010 the OP should sell all of his cars and start using public transportation.

I had 2 e90's you turd. All of my vehicles have been exceptionally maintained by me. i have never screwed up any kind of repair. what do you think it says about a person when they don't read the owners manual and just think ohh, if i can add oil into my radiator maybe it will go into the crankcase. Drive an S2k, its unlike any kind of honda you have ever driven.

Ah, I didn't get your point. Then we agree. My first assumption was he did do some DIY stuff since he was conscience enough to actually try to add oil to the engine and had a brain fart. What I suggested was not hard to do even for a novice. But you are correct; his later post indicates he has no business wrenching on the cooling system.

Well what badassfajita was saying, regardless of how an S2000 drives, was you suggested that the OP (who you called an idiot and retarded) not try and maintain his own, fine German automobile, and suggested the the OP sell his BMW and buy a Honda (apparently because the owers of Hondas need no DIY skills to own one); which, since you own a Honda, can be transferred as all Honda owners, regardless of model owned, can be or are idiots.

It was a dammed good reply to such a harsh statement as you originally posted.

+1... At least the S2000 has at least 1 Dipstick on the engine and at least 1 sitting in the drivers seat!

OP, you have some serious balls posting this thread, I would be willing to bet half the BS responses to your post wouldn't have the balls to do it.

Call me what you want, but you just got clowned by your own words.

And I don't disagree with you, an S2K is a great car. But the OP made a mistake and you chose to ream him for it. Its got nothing to do with a German vs Jap car.

Thanks, but you should've seen how sheepish I was when I spoke to the AA guy and the dude at the garage. This has proved to be a very embarrassing lesson.

Anyway thanks for all the support folks
