I'm also looking to do the same with hpd. I would trade my 2013 cvt ex for another 2013 manual ex just for the hpd supercharger. Never was a fan of 2014-15 because of their rims

Oh, yeah, another thing about the deal, had I gotten the 2016 6-Speed was that I'd swap my 2013 premium white pearl wheels to go with my new 2016 (and sell the 2013 with the 2016 wheels on them.)

No other real reason
Didn't you spend a lot of money to add forced induction to yours?

Aye i did. And i would keep both if could. Thing is locally, S2000 prices are going up....and CR-Z going down, so i wanted to get one while i can.

S2000 prices here are retardedly high.

I can buy one in germany or so for about 8000-10000€, but to import it, legalize it, it would cost me 8-10K extra.....
Nationals, cost from 18.000€ to 30.000€

While CR-Z's are at 13500€,not selling, and going down.
That's why i want to make the switch while i can

Pretty much the only reason I'd consider getting rid of my Z would be to go to a manual. The CVT is nice and definitely does the job, but I definitely regret not going manual. The car's underwater now so no chance of trading it in for years and years to come, but if I ever did trade it in that'd be the reason.

What about the reason I traded my last two in? "The newer CR-Z have cool things I want that aftermarket can't do"

While I don't have any intentions of trading my CR-Z, I do wish it was faster. I've definitely looked into getting it supercharged, but the cost of getting it is too much. I could probably find a faster vehicle the same cost of the supercharger and install. Plus my CR-Z now has 77k miles and I'm afraid the engine might not make it longer if it were supercharged.

I bought mine for the 30,000 miles I was commuting each year... if that changes, I'll look at better options. if i find none, I'll keep it.

I originally bought the car for my wife. I had a 2010 Insight. We traded the Insight on her 2014 Plum Crazy Pearl Charger RT, and the Z became my daily commuter. I love it, it's fun to drive, gets great mileage, handles well, looks sharp. If I feel the "need for speed" have a 2000 C5 Corvette FRC 6M. So far it's just been brakes, tires and oil changes (except for the incident with a deer).
