Buying a car with so much damage, especially when it has fragile aluminum subframes and suspension components is utterly stupid IMO. I can almost guarantee you not every single part that needed to be replaced was replaced, which is typical in any such accident.
With a few grand more, you could buy a perfect example, and most importantly, you'd get that extra money at resale. Something that WILL NOT happen with that other car. Good luck.

You know my position and rationale already from the prior thread.
