Sorry I could not resist.

At least there is an indication of the previous damage although 9e's statement on the previous post didn't really lead me to believe all was as well as has been intimated. I could have misunderstood 9e's post though.

I wonder what happened to this bit:

"The rear spoiler had a crack in the carbon and the end plates missing, unsure what was best to buy a new carbon one or an original GT3 one i left it as repaired and matt black. I have since learnt this perhaps is a little 'amateur' to quote on you folks so i have ordered the end plates and will attach.

I don't see any end plates or the carbon fibre spoiler. A little quick to put out the fire and clearly did not want to spend anymore money over and above the OEM surf board.

Possibly optimistic with price Surprised .

I stated 'I won't make a comment on the condition of the car as that would be inappropriate - we have seen it just the once last month for a geometry. As always anyone interested in the car should do their own checks on the car. '

The car came into specs on the geometry. However to be clear, that does not mean there is no chassis damage - further inspection would be needed in order to give an opinion.

For example I have seen on other cars where the chassis leg has been heated and bent into shape which is not the correct solution for repair.

Hence my reply in bold - do your checks.

I think it would be a decent buy at the right price - I was interested when it was at Copart but the bidding got out of hand. Ideally would have preferred to buy it in its pre-repaired state but could be ok if its been repaired to a decent standard. I'm currently in the market but it would need to be a lot cheaper for me.

On my first ever trip to the Nurburgring, on the eve of my first ever trackday there, the driver showed my his in-car footage of this crash on his 'phone during dinner. Surprised

It was probably a 'good thing' for me to see it, but it did nothing to steady my nerves!

Not necessarily - my big crash there was only recorded by my own onboard and to my knowledge none of my 4 non-contact spins ever made YouTube either. If I could go there regularly for a decade without ending up on a compilation then I am sure that you can too. Paper Bag

How did she shift that?!

Notice that it now has the incredibly rare optioned electric club sport bucket seats...

Still no indication of damage though...

Those seats explain the price hike then. Thank god for that, i thought it may have been some unscrupulous seller trying to steal money off people.

Perhaps waited until the 'net noise died down and quietly moved it on to someone in the trade who hadn't done due diligence on its past? From the earlier days of this thread it is apparent that the dealer advertising it this time may have been innocently oblivious of its history when pricing it?

Average price of a car in that dealers stock is about £5-10k - seems a strange place to be marketing a GT3! Has anyone warned the dealer?! Maybe they don't care.
I am convinced someone sent me pics of this sitting in Brighton somewhere for weeks - about 18 months ago - well it was definitely a red 996 GT3 - maybe before the work was done - will try and dig them out.
