I just took a test drive in the Grand Sport Spyder and Feel in LOVE with the car. Since the brand new one is out of my reach I would like to purchase a pre owned Maserati Spyder! Any recomendations on what I should look for since you are all experts your advice and guidance is priceless!!

Thanks :)

I'm not an expert by any means, as I've only owned my Maser CC since the end of May/beginning of June. Anyway, there are many threads here regarding clutch wear. That would be the big thing to me.

Welcome aboard!

Check out cars's history (service routines, defects, crashes, warranty issues), prefer the "cleanest" car you can afford.
Do not buy a cheaper car over a better one.
These machines are outstanding if you treat them like a classy woman. Gently and protective. If you are inattentive to her, she will definately abandon you!!
Spyders have a matter of poor stiffness comparing to a Porsche and the clutch is an issue only if you have a very heavy foot specialy on launches and uphills. Remember not to drive it like a dragster.
Anyway prefer a car with the clutch replaced and do not forget to measure the clutch's wear (can be done to a specialist through the EOBD port) claim a new one (clutch not car) if it is over 50-60%.
you will definately need at least one every 30-50k miles depending on your driving style.
Besides that there is always the F1 pump issue, and yes, you will need at least one sometime. Besides these nothing serius. Ah sound system is CRAP
All these are minor problems comparing to the unique feeling to get by driving this camouflaged FERRARI!!!!!
Lots of power, handling, recognition, class and exceptionality!
ENJOY, hope you join us
