Why is that you have to start this car twice in order to fire all 8 cylinders?
I asked a Ferrari service member and he said that this was "just the way it is".
Is there any way around this issue?

Thank you.

Jack- Odds are your injectors need cleaning. A problem on Motronic 7.1.1 Ferraris. Fixed the problem on my 575M with 7.1.1. The leaking injectors give you an overly rich mixture at start, confusing the system.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
