ALTHOUGH, this whole time i was basing insurance savings off of the first s2000 I drove which was a 2008. Little did I know that the insurance rates over the model years would change so drastically. I got quoted at 130/month for the 2008, and for 04-06 MY i was quoted 180/month.

Does anyone know why that is!???
It is most likely directly related to the addition of stability control in 2006 - therefore any newer car should be "safer" since so many not-so-good drivers kept wrapping them around trees. Another reason why the 2004+ (ap2) models have a tendency to understeer whereas the 2000-2003 cars (ap1) have a stiffer suspension tuned to oversteer.
