I took the advice of some S2000 owners and bought a 2002 S2000 over the 2001. It could have been I wasn't used to the engine and was over-revving it. It could be, as you said, I wasn't used to the car. But all I know is when I test drove a 2002 about a week later with top up and top down it was a completely different experience. Now that I own it, even when I go into VTEC it seems quieter than the 2001 I tested. Can't pin down the why but I do know I love my new S2000! In a few minutes I plan to jump into it. I simply can't get enough driving time in it!
