Gene, you're already "seeing" the adjustment of this minor incident in the purchase price. So if you're looking for a less expensive entre into the Ferrari world this is it. I would anticipate you'll have similar difficulties selling the car as the present owner, and it may take a little longer to move it.
But beware, Ferrari ownership is like an iceberg - the initial cost to purchase is only the tip of the iceberg. Keeping it going, and paying through the nose for Ferrari parts is the rest of the iceberg. Having said that, the quality of the later cars like the 430 is better and they seem more reliable than the cars of the late 90's.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
