I like it. Looks better than the original hard top, and it's from Spoon, which means it's quality and functional as well. I would buy one if I hd an S2k.

Incorrect, sir. There is indeed a window on the silver car, just a reflection.

Top looks meh, but I'm a fan of form follows function, so I'd consider it if I had an S2K.

Playlist looks much worse.

Interesting how many supposed car enthusiasts give people crap for doing things to their cars that are for looks, not function, then call something functional crap because they think it doesn't look good...

Fastback rooflines as add-ons to convertible sports cars go way back to LeMans racers in the '60s. It's all about function.

Directed towards me? I was simply stating it looked "meh" meaning I was neutral on the looks part of it. But when I look at an add-on like that, the first thing in my mind isn't "how does it look?"; it's "what does it do?".

No, actually, I was enhancing what you were saying about form over function. Sorry for the confusion.

Being an s2000 guy, I have always HATED the spoon/mooncraft hardtop... with a few exceptions of highly modded/aggressive looking cars that can pull it off, it usually looks really out of place IMO. I have always been a Mugen HT fan, which is why I've had one on my last s2k and on my current CR ...
