Henry- How about a reference? Searching the serial number turned up nothing. The car is not in my database, but Carbon may know something
Kubes- Car has been overserviced on belt changes, good. Interval is 5 years, but not widely known or ignored because of old 3 year references in the owners manual and workshop manual.
Gearchange problem was addressed with a potentiometer in what you attached, not an ECU. Big difference. Rare problem and once fixed, should be fine.
Factory campaigns are no problem and normal for new models, which the 575M was.
Shrinkage of dash leather is common (mine has been replaced) and the owner overkilled on the solution, recovering the dash, instrument panel, and airbag cover to get a perfect match of leather, good.
Have never heard of rear quarter window issues on 575Ms, so unknown to me. Sounds like the owner was ripped off, to be perfectly honest.
Condensation in the headlights can be fixed by removing the bulbs and blowing into the opening with a hair dryer. The units are not completely sealed and the humidity in the South will tend to fog them. No problem here in New Mexico, no surprise.
November 07 to April 08 is less than the normal annual service interval. No comment.
Car has the basic highly desired options including 19" modulars, Daytona inserts (electric seats and memory are standard), rear shelf and painted calipers. Plus it has the rare quilted rear shelf and headliner. Not on option lists, but available.
Price is relatively high. Do not know if there are any warts or not with no personal experience with the car.
Odds are this car is a consignment and the price is susceptible to adjustment.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
