There were two handling packages for 05-early 08 standard 612s, HGTS, which does not include CCM brakes, and HGTC, which does. These include faster shifting TCU, stiffer suspension and ECU, and wheels with the packages. In 07 the Sessanta, and in 08 the OTO, were introduced with 599 gearbox case and dual plate clutch and an uprated Type F133H engines. There was an HGT2 handling package for the OTO, all of which came standard with CCM brakes. 612s did not follow the F430 and 599 with standard CCMs in September 2007, so you can find 08s that have steel brakes and are not OTOs.
In general, the OTO/Sessanta would be preferred, but cost more. The OTO has a glass roof.
All this has been discussed in detail in the past, so do a search. All the mileage vs age criteria are strictly opinion and you will have to make up your own mind which is more important to you. There is little difference between a car built in 2003 (yes, they were building early 612s in 2003) and 2007 except for some larger wheel choices on the later cars.

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