And the gearshift was better than a BMW but not as good as a Honda.

Cars like the S2000 deserve much higher praise than the FR-S/BR-Z.

I'm excited for what the BR-Z has started though, I think we'll see more competitive cars on the market very soon.
S2000 doesn't exist anymore, and was a good bit less practical than the FR-S. That said, I absolutely love the S2000. That thing demands full attention, and MAN is it fun to keep its toes.

S2000 = pure; FR-S/BRZ = compromise
