I test drove a 2011 GT vert with the brembo package and I must say it was not nearly as solid as my 2001 or 2005 Honda S2000s that I used to own. I only put 6 miles on it so I did not get to drive it on that many road surfaces.
It was better than my BILs 2003 Thunderbird though. But unless you are canyon carving everyday I think the vert is the way to go. If not for my ******* neighbor that has 9 bird feeders I would have ordered a vert. I almost bought the one I test drove but I decided I could not deal with bird crap on the nice cloth top everyday.
