    Yeah not a huge deal to me though. But some nice tires might be necessary

    Rust, dents, miles.
    I'd be down for a mini Cooper, as long as it was under warranty.

    Other than that an accord with 6mt

    The Golf R is just dead for the 2020 model year. They’re going to start production again for the MK8 gen next year.

    I'm going to catch some hate for this, but I traded in my 2008 Jeep Wrangler 2 door because I needed a truck. I would take my Jeep without any questions.

    My secondary car is a FBO n54 335i coupe, 6speed. Runs straight ethanol. Last dynojet run did 440hp to the wheels. Just put an in LSD last month. Goal is a reliable 600whp - going big single turbo when my twins blow soon.

    Got the truck mainly for hauling around my husky and snowboarding trips.

    Why would that matter? Still a 700hp supercar...

    I'm guessing because it's no longer body on frame, at least that would keep me from ever considering it.

    I'd say it matters to a lot of people for pretty obvious reasons and is definitely not a Supercar...

    I’d still drive it tho. Just get it checked out by a mechanic and see if it’s good to go.

    I'd drive it all day...if you're paying!

    I've bought a couple salvaged cars in the past but they were all just body damage and I knew what I was getting into having been a mechanic for many years but I'd personally never spend 40k on a salvaged car, especially one with flood or fire damage, you think your mechanic is gonna rip apart the whole car and check all the electrical? Of course not...

    But whatever floats your boat, buy whatever your heart desires, just my 2 cents.

    That’s the thing with salvage cars. Big risk that could go well or go bad
