The rear drivers side wheel appears to have taken quite a hit, could be a bent rim or suspension and hub damage.
Go and have a look.
Looks to need a bumper/bumper x-member and a bolt on leg and some rear links, so not a vast amount of parts.
Looks to be a well specced car.
IF it was a straightforward job, why hasn't the previous owner done it??
Got to have some hidden nasties that'll bump repair costs up!!
i see lots of these and have spoken several times about them to my friendly backstreet body shop guy. He says always leave them alone, you can never tell what damage has been by just looking at pictures. Apparant minor damage can soon escalate into major repair job
Even when he goes to view such a car he reckons he can only be about85% certain of the extent of damage, as so much is hidden from view.
He says if a car is advertised as minor damage, easily repairable, why doesnt the seller get someone to sort it for him and make several thousand in the process !
My view a car like that is going to cost an awfull lot more to get back on the road than you first think. Then its got a tainted history when you come to sell it
