If he can't show you photos of the damaged car I wouldn't do it. He lied to you about that he is the second owner, why wouldn't he lie about the accident then?

carfax < personal inspection

i know plenty of crashed/salvaged cars with clean titles. see it for yourself... there's a device to measure paint thickness (that shows if the panel's been repainted)

Allright and I saw the paint job it looked good, but lets say I inspect the frame and all and it's ok should I do it?

You're really jones'n for this G37. Is he selling it cheap? What's the allure? To me that carfax is a huge red flag.

Honestly I would never buy a car flagged as structural damage but it's your money.

There are so many used cars out there. You have to get THIS one which you know has been damaged?

I wouldn't do it.
