Buying an accidented car?

Someone is making me an offer on the GTR that I might take, type of guy that laps and races cars so I know my car will be treated well.

Looking for a great daily driver for now. I have my eyes on a Jeep Cherokee SRT 2014+ or an overland Diesel until I can pick up another sports car next year. My back injury is begging for an easier car to get in and out of.

My cousin's boyfriend buys and sells cars on the side and he has a 2015 435i m-sport fully loaded. Manual, the brembo brakes. cameras etc. Picked it up at auction with accident (see attached pics), no frame damage, no airbags popped and still under warranty. has 4000 km on it. brand new. He would sell it to me at whatever it cost him so far to repair. low 40's. which is 22 000 below brand new msrp and a good 12-15 under market value for used examples with higher mileage.

If I bought it, it stays stock and becomes the daily for next 5 years and will sit side by side with my next sports/exotic purchase within a year or two.

what do you guys think?

the fact that you are call it an "accidented car" implies that you should probably skip the car and buy a bus pass.

the fact that you focus on that slight mistake (as we call it accidented in french) makes you a douche nozzle. Did I write that correctly? Answer the thread or get out?

this is OT man. it's just an internet playground. tread lightly.
and yes, douche nozzle is correct

if it's a car you like, it seems like an ok deal. but don't expect for it to be an investment. it's hard to sell a crashed salvage car for any price.

If you like the car, do it. I would wait until it's repaired before making an offer, though.

That's way too accidented to be a good idea.

I wouldn't. Someone else will make this guy an offer. Accident cars are a tough subject because they start out clean titled, but if you don't know where its coming from exactly you can get screwed later on. First get paperwork from the auction that shows it listed as a clean and clear title, and then make him an offer asap, give him a deposit, but then also break his balls on quality before you take delivery.
