    Hi rob dose the owner tell you what was repaired on car or is it missing information. Me personally if you had a good look at car or bring someone with you and inspect it car inside out maybe ask could you see it on a ramp like eoin said if it was repaired a couple of months after purchasing doubt it would be half arsed current owner looks to have minded it. When I bought mine had a small bit of repair work on bumper and rear door wasnít great on bumper but didnít let it put me off as it had an extensive folder of receipts had looked at a good few rough cars this one looks a lot tidier than most of what I seen I donít think I would be put off if car is genuine

    I know what you mean but will sliver would generally show up repair work more as itís hard to get shades exactly spot on a sunny day will show up and as for body damage a crease or dent under body work might still be there but as said it looks clean plus can tell a lot by owner too ask to see underneath for piece of mind. A car will always have something on it small dings etc but on cartel list bring some where for professional look itís for sale a while I donít think owner would mind plus fairly low mileage. I looked for nearly a year I know what itís like trying to find good one my head was busted one I have came up for sale again due to time wasters copped it went down for it still needed a few bits tidying but it was 13 year old not a show pony but get driven hasnít missed a beat despite what all the scare mongers say best of luck

    Also has JDM headlights and no decals on bumper canards could point to it being a bit of front end damage as not original to type uk

    Yeah well in fairness, I'd get a professional to look, not a mechanic like, it would be a very good indication if a panel beater wasn't able to find it or if he was able to find it, would also be good to know how extensive the repair was.

    IMO, people hear repaired and it turns them in the opposite direction, without knowing if the repair was done correctly or not.
    Could have been repaired back in 05 to literally "good as new"

    I also seen a blue 05 on DD up north.
    Be worth a check 👍
