I bought a chrome 0.58 MP about 13 years ago. No mechanical issues whatsoever. It’s my favourite M overall. The M2 is a close second, the M4 a distant third. Chrome still totally flawless despite regular and careful use, including multiple overseas trips.
I still lust for a black paint MP, and would buy current production with no hesitation if I had the means and opportunity. You get a full warranty that you can rely on.
Your alternative is to buy second hand. However, you do run the risk of the early unsealed VF that gathers dust easily, and it will possibly require a CLA at further expense. Given the high prices of use MP, I would buy new.
Go ahead with your transaction, and go with the finish that appeals.
Good luck, and enjoy!
