    In europe most cars listed on official pre owned Ferrari site (dealers) are almost never from first owner.

    Most have had multiple owners.

    Yet they sell them with approved program.

    Somehow I feel I only want to by 1st hand. Am I wrong?

    my car had four or five owners but was well taken car of. i didn't have an issue with it. i would be more concern if one of the owners was a rental company or something like that

    I don't understand the concern with owners and the amount of.

    My only concern is the metal in front of me. Then we move on to service history.

    But after that who cares? I'm not saying you are wrong. I just dont get the concern.

    If the car has no paint work and is exceptionally clean and has had 4 owners.

    Vs

    A car that has 1 owner. Paint that clearly hasn't been waxed and say a bumper that's been reshot and a bent wheel and 2 curb rashed wheels Which would you rather have?

    I've never understood how the number of owners has any meaning in the past 40 years. Frankly with what I've seen, new owners on a regular basis may mean the cars get driven regularly and treated like treasures more often than the guy who leaves it in garage most of the time.

    Number of owners doesn’t matter. Buy on spec and condition.

    While it's not a Ferrari ad, it sums it up perfectly for me. This is an ad from Turkey, it wouldn't float in the prudish markets.
