Oh ya, this thing pulls and keeps on pulling! It is so nice to have more power and torque. The ride is pretty nice and comfy, I wouldn't say as comfy as the TSX though. But of course, they are built for two totally different purposes. There is quiet a bit more road noise too, but nothing the Bose stereo can't overpower
The Syncro Rev Match transmission on the Z is so freaking cool! I don't have problem with the revs when in neutral, maybe that was a problem on earlier models. I purposely bought the 2012 and not 2013 because I don't like the "refreshed" facia on the latter. 2012's on also come with an oil cooler to keep the oil temps at a reasonable level when getting on it.
I really would have like to stay with Honda but there is just nothing in the Acura or Honda line that attracts me and find most models bland and boring. I do still have the S2000 which I plan on hanging on to for quite a while. It is the only vehicle that I ever bought that has actually appreciated in price since I bought it.
