    Looking for advice on wrecked M3

    Hello,

    I am looking for some advice on a M3. The owner said that the car was side swiped, but after looking at the repair bill it looks like there was more work done. What do you all think? Would you purchase a car with this amount of damage?

    Does anything jump out at you. I too thought it was a lot of work for a fender bender.

    Not any one thing... but a lot seems to have been done. But realize I'm not a collision expert by any stretch.

    Personally, I'd look for a nicer car.

    Why do you want to buy wrecked car? Do you have the necessary skills, equipment and money to completely rebuild this car? If not find another clunker.

    Right now, a Volvo S60R, just ordered an '08 335xi
    $8k sounds like a simple side swipe to me. These cars are expensive to fix. I got read ended and the bill was $15k
