@butteruup82 @rcarter978 This is going back few years now but I believe when I bought the car the previous owner said that the accident was only that he hit a pot hole and had to get the car towed or something like that. I'm not 100% sure. I will say although the car was optioned with xenons, when I got the car it just had regular halogen bulbs and I didn't convert them back. Replacement headlights can indicate a front end accident in some cases. I think if there we any issues from previous accidents they would likely have presented themselves over the subsequent thousands of miles this car has driven and damage would likely be seen in the photos. Tell tale signs are paint chipping on the white painted fasteners holding the fenders in place, and paint scratches around the fasteners for the upper rad support.
I owned this car in CA for about a year from 111k ish miles, and sold it with about 123k (If you look at picture 138 you can see my name on the under tray still). I road tripped with a buddy from near Chicago where I bought the car back home to the Bay Area. Really enjoyed the car as a daily and had to wait a while to find a white one. C43s are great but I had scratched the itch so decided to move on. Cool to see it pop up here on the site, and looking forward to seeing the auction result.
Quick note, I installed the H&R springs so unless the current owner installed another set for some reason they aren't really new anymore.
