I'm losing the will to live and getting fed up of spending money on my cars and bike, so the S2000 will probably sit in my garage until next summer now...

I had to strip and clean one rear a couple of times, ensure there is just enough pub on the pistons to refit, and that they return easily, mine ended up easy enough to practically screw back in by hand, is the handbrake lever free too? also the calliper easy in the carrier? Sorry I always go with the simple task first, you may have already checked these. Can you apply the brakes whilst the car is still in the air, on the jack, to see how easy the wheel spins? It may save a long test drive.
