Y'know, I think salvage cars are maligned improperly. As long as it has been properly repaired, who cares? An inspection and due diligence should be performed prior to buying it - see the repair work and look at it closely, determine if it really is as good as new; but I've seen cars totaled for utterly silly reasons.
Case in point: I managed to get an insurance company to total my old E39 BMW 540 for a 3 mile per hour rear end collision that dislodged the impact strips and cracked the paint... the car was 100% serviceable otherwise...
I do agree with the feedback - swap it back to the OEM grille, and it will be a lot easier to sell. I do love the C32 wheels on it, however... looks very sharp.
