Matt- Welcome to Ferrari Life. In general gray market cars have been monkeyed with by non-factory shops and many have non-OEM parts on them. I imported two gray market cars in the 70s and 80s, when the conversions were done by some touch and go outfits. The work is now much more reliable and the cars are more consistent, but there is still the non-factory stigma. At various times, used Euro cars have been much cheaper than similar condition US cars, so doing a gray market import made sense. Especially since Ferrari has tried to push towards world cars that meet everybody's requirements.
So there is nothing wrong with a gray market car, but the mass production models (not talking about Ferrari Supercars) have never, and likely will not in the future, brought as much as their US versions
