...is that a slight bulge on top of the rear bumper below the number plate?

Mercedes : MERCEDES C43 AMG AUTO

Still, good spec and tidy car. Seller reports any rust issues dealt with by previous owner.

That's cheap if HPI clear.

Can't help thinking it needs the staggered wheels though - fronts look too dished.

Bumper would probably be ok if a bodyshop could heat it and up re-shape it?

ETA: Look at the colour mismatch on the o/s rear quarter in pic 5

All C43 rear bumpers are prone to warping with age.

i know of three that have the same rear bumper issue its the inner foam padding coming away from skin of bumper and also if you remove the bumper the two inner bolts for tightening need to be pulled out at the bottom for fixing as this can also happen when the bumper has had a tip even a small one
