I'm looking at a '08 650 vert for my wife. I have some questions about it for current owners.

1. We are looking at an 08 with a manual transmission. Any thoughts from current owner on the manual? Pros / Cons? Both my wife and I prefer the a manual which might play in our favor as I would imagine most people want an automatic.

2. I'm leery of the iDrive computer. I've read mixed reviews. Thoughts from anyone on the dependability, ease of use, etc.. of the system?

3. Dependability. For vert owners any issues with operation of the top? We had a Saab vert which was undependable, complex and costly to fix. I take it this lift via hydraulics of some sort.

4. Any other tips on what to look for in a used 650?
