I bought a vert because the particular car i found was in good condition. I notice it is somewhat squeaky especially on rough roads. It's never annoying though. I developed a small leak on my A pillar which I'm guessing would not have happened if it wasn't a vert. This happens only after HUGE rain storms or rain that lasts more than 3 days. Basically a few times a year and its a few drips that come in when i drive off never anything big. It's not a constant leak all through the rain though.
Driving with the top up feels completely normal. It does have a bigger blind spot but it has never bothered me. I'm a safe driver. You forget it's a convertible when the top is up. My top has been reliable.
Driving with the top down is a feeling like no other. I can't describe it but it feels great to be out in the open when you're driving.
