i had an 05 s2k. it is til this day the most fun car i have ever owned (out of 10). it's not the fastest. nor the quickest. nor the "best handling". definitely not the most comfortable. stock headunit looks like one from a 90's accord. border-line terrifying to drive in serious rain weather.... but it was just the most fun car to drive and beat on in the mountains and then cruise down the coast at night with the top down. that gearbox is about as perfect as it can get imo. it doesnt feel like you're rowing nor does it feel like a light switch (i hate super short shifters)... it has just the right amount of motion.
that being said, i wouldnt buy another one unless it was my "3rd car".
p.s. - AP2 > AP1. i hate how the AP1 front bumper looks like a 92 civic. LOL
