Eddie, I bought my 550 from FoW, and it also had been bought new, resold to a 2nd owner, and serviced there its entire life, but it was like pulling teeth to get them to turn loose any previous records. Finally I made it a condition of the sale, and the sales guy had to stand at a copier and put yellow stickies over all the PO's personal info as he was making copies.
But having those previous service records are gold in my book. Having the history of the car and knowing what was done to it (at least at that dealer), certain of its little quirks are understandable, and I can be on the lookout for "repeat offenders". They were well worth the angst I had to go through obtaining them.

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