AFAIK no problems with 6speed gearbox.
It's advisable to change water pump with cambelt & tensioner (or every other cambelt change).
Panoramic sunroof sliders tend to wear out, resulting in swishing/whistling noises above 75mph. Repair is a one man job, there are some examples on YT.

Scuttle drains of course - they tend to block, resulting in all sorts of "fun".
