Carfax often counts the number of owners incorrectly. Crossing the border itself could easily account for 2-3 "owners" on one of their reports. You need to look at the dates and locations of these "owners" in order to figure out if they are real or not.

There are vintage cars that trade ownership virtually every year, and in some cases you can have a 15 or 20 year old car with 8 or 9 owners, however I'd be surprised if this car had more than 2-4.

Yes Canadian registration system is
Weird. For example my car was originally owned by a Canadian dealership. It was register as a corporate demo car owned by dealership manager it had about 5 registration events as the dealer was using temp registration and it shows as multiple owners. Another US owner leased his 1M then bought it after lease was registered as 2nd owner. If it has 7 owners it might have been a corporate car in Canada. Check if multiple owners in same city in Canada. You can also check with Bmw by vin and see if corporate car.

Where in Florida are you? I saw a white 1M on palm beach lakes the other day in west palm beach, first time seeing a white one here. I'll be at cars and coffee tomorrow at the Palm Beach outlets in my 1M, you should come if you're local!

I believe the C&C in Palm Beach is here:
Palm Beach Outlets
1751 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd, West Palm Beach, 33401

https://goo.gl/maps/R9B1wNEyLin

https://www.carsandcoffeepb.com

I plan to make the Sept 23rd event

Tampa C&C is always first Saturday of the month and 3rd Saturday in St Pete.
