    I would look for stress cracks, blemishes in the finish any rubbing around the doors and or tires. front and rear bumpers "crack very easy" all lights to be sure they work and are alligned properly. All doors and deck lids. check for proper allignment and gaps. mirrors, windows, wheels, brakes, ample cooling, check all mounting area's for proper mounting and for any stress cracks.. check for wind leaks while driving. proper stance of the car, if its been lowered it could not be correct. things like this will give you a very good idea if the car has been taken care of and if the panels have been installed correctly.. good luck!

    hi, i seen the car today, it looked okish. there where some problems with it, like the window had come off the railings, which i spose could be sorted out. And i did spot a few little cracks marks in the bodywork. Can these be repaired?

    The inside didnt look the best kept, but it did have the black leather seats with ferrari embroided on headrests. Also the one of the front lights had a bit of a gap in it. But i spose that could probably sort out too, i think it just needs moving over slightly to make it even.

    The engine also looked a little bit dirty...

    i want too get round too posting some of the pics i took but im not a patron yet ;D i will get my butt in gear and sign up for it later today and get some pics uploaded for you too look at.
