I have a vague idea of how they work. It's probably not going to get any better.
Basically, I'm in year 11 of the S2000 experience, going on 75k miles. I've replaced the clutch master cylinder, which then blew out the slave cylinder, and both of those just got old and the seals croaked. I'm also still on the original clutch and brake pads. Those wear out from ****ty driving and if you don't drive like a dick they should last a while. Some things get just get old and die and others live forever if you don't abuse them.
So anyway the suspension has developed a tendency to sort of unload itself in some corners. It's sort of unsettling. I've auto-x'ed enough to know the limits of the tires and how to avoid the rear end drama that will occasionally try to murder you if you're not paying attention. I checked the tire pressure and it's spot on, I'm using OEM S-02s and I'm not near the edge of tire grip, again because I've auto'xed and found myself staring at the place where I just came from several times.
The whole car is bone stock, so I haven't monkeyed it up with crap aftermarket parts. If anyone has personal experience I'd appreciate it.
