Not sure why the importance you have on records, sure they show that the car was maintained but come on, with only 8,000 miles on the car, its brand new, what kind of maintenance needed to be done ? Absolutely make sure every thing is up to date on it, but I see nothing wrong with buying a 8,000 mile 360 with no records and making sure everything is up to date with fresh belts, annual, etc. With only 8,000 miles I would even check the tires and if they are original, throw them away, they are too old now.
Now if the car has more miles, like my 360 did (52,000 miles) when I purchased it, then records are a little more important to show maintenance was done but again I was more worried about what was recent then what was done a long time ago.
As to the car being sold, some cars will stay on the market for a long time, others are priced right and you have to pounce. My car was on the market 3 days before I bought it and I talked to the owner on the second day before getting the nerve to pull the trigger and buy without a PPI and then flying out to drive it home. No I don't recommend no PPI to everyone, its what I did but not what I recommend.
My one and rule for my car was NOT Red, I would have loved a Yellow one but a Grigio Alloy one was the first one to pop up
oh, one more thing I agree with Yoshields, my car came with some crappy looking aftermarket shields, the Yoshields are AWESOME and look much better but he is not in business anymore so only used Yoshields available now (glad I got mine when I did).
