My 2 cents: spoke to the selling dealer: car has 125K miles; bought at an auction; no records or history; dealer says put new headlights recently? IMHO: gap front bumper driver side and fender & radiator support plus missing trim rear right door/quarter panel, looks like a bottom paint repaint might be a signs of an accident? dealer got a little defensive when asked for carfax report? thinks he has a minter and will hold for top price.

I still have the same bumpers for sale. If someone is interested, make me an offer!

look like gen 1 us headlights to me. interesting if he has an ad for 'classic euro lights' somewhere else that are similarly overpriced.

something not right about this car. why so many exterior shots but no good shots of the cluster or dash?

My car is missing the driver's side real quarter panel. It was there one day...gone the next day when I noticed it. :crybaby2: I think it just fell off unless someone actually tried to take it off at college...

Repaint! look at the roof to trunk line in the photos, orange peel look or no clear coat.
