We have the S-tec 60-2 system, which incorporates the PSS with preselect, VS, GS and autotrim.  The altitude hold part of the system works well and relieves a lot of work load.  The altitude pre-select and vertical speed modes function well, and I find them useful, but not as much as the simple alt hold.  It is very nice to do a fully coupled approach in GS mode.

This is great news then. I'm still in the throws about selling my plane and buying something with TKS and a half decent autopilot. I've spent a ton of money and time getting this plane running the way I like it and being very dependable. If I decide to keep it for a while I would seriously consider this option next. 

Is there anything to watch out for maintenance and configuration wise?

Sounds like a good plan.  Spend some time with your avionics person to make sure whatever you get is going to do what you expect.  For instance, I believe the standard configuration simply prompts for trim, which is then done manually.  Autotrim is an option and requires electric trim.  Maintenance is usually not an issue until the units gets some age on it, and then you can have the usual issues with servos, etc.
