I'm in line for another cabriolet, but the wait is now 18 months, so I found one in Sherman Oaks, CA. With only 2000 miles on it an no dings at all. It was just like brand new. I traded in a Ford Explorer. I have owned Ferraris and this car is as much fun (different kind of fun). I tried it on beach streets (Manhattan Beach), freeways (LA to Orange, 405, 5, 55) and it handles great. I am glad I got the Cabrio, it is great at the beach.
Everybody gives me thumbs up. I am stopped 2-3 times a day and every one want to know "home many cylinders". There are apparently 2 in Manhattan Beach (including mine), so I expect this to continue. I am 100% happy with my purchase, even considering that I had to pay a premium for not waiting.
The automanual gearbox is the only real problem between first and second, but I can live with it given all the other positives.
