I think I'm going to wait for the power top. I test drove an s2000 the other day and it was pretty sweet. Two latches released and one button without even having to move from your seat. At first, in the infatuation phase, you may not mind the manual top, but after a year or so, it may get old. Even the mags have commented on how it is a chore to lower the top. If you have any conflicting responses, just go test drive an s2000 and you will understand.
