    How not to market a Ferrari.

    My records show that this car was bought by an FChatter in California for $9,000 (!) in April, 2007. No information recorded on its condition at the time.

    As can be seen from the vehicle history report, the car had 68,756 miles on it in 2001 so the description listing the mileage as "65,000 miles" is incorrect. There is no photo of the odometer in the ad, so the current mileage is unknown.

    Here is the AutoCheck Vehicle History report that is shown on eBay:

    Below are the historical events for this vehicle listed in chronological order. Any discrepancies will be in bold text.

    Looks very nice, this is at least the fifth place offering it for sale since 2000. It has the common reversed taillights with the red lenses on the outside. It's a shame that someone doesn't actually use it as it has accumulated only 300 miles since January 2009.

    If it is common to reverse the lights, why do they do that?
    It sure does look like a clean example and only 150 miles away too.
    I'm glad I already have one.

    Why do they reverse the tail lights? Who knows why, maybe the body shop just isn't paying attention. There probably is some visceral feeling for those that don't know Ferraris that the red on the outside looks more "natural" but it's wrong.

    Based on the observation that the reversed taillights are common, my guess is it was something the federalizing shop did, or something that some anonymous DOT bureaucrat decided to require, to earn a DOT certificate.

    The dealership that's selling the black/tan 412 is asking $49k for it. I think that's a little outlandish but what do I know...

    I don't think so, after all every one of our series came in through the conversion EPA/DOT approval process and most don't have reversed taillights.

    To me it is an indication of a car that has, at best, a repaint or, at worst, repairs of major rear end crash damage. In either case the shop wasn't paying attention and put them back the way that "looked right" to them

    I have often thought the same thing, not on our model but on Boxers...I'd notice the reversed taillights + no rear side markers & no front side markers because of the turn signal repeaters. I thought this was a crafty way of avoiding installing those damn things. I'd change them back after it cleared the shop.

    & I thought the same when I saw rear side markers.



    The luni's shouldn't be in business then, I'm still trying to think of an example of a car that has directional signals on the inside. Does anyone have an example?
    When changing out the taillight gaskets a few yrs. back, I noticed that the wiring was a little tight. I don't know if there's enough wire length to switch the bulb sockets.

    You mean this?

    Looks like standard American public school English c. 2012. What I get is, the car leaks oil, it has brand new tires, the headlight door does not go up or down, and the violent tank is rusty.
