I had noticed 3 paint drips on my rear bumper & rear driver side fender. So I took off my rear bumper to see if there was any damage and wanted to know if my bumper was oem. I can't figure out if my rear bumper is oem or a rep I need some help! Also how does the frame look?

I don't know enough to comment on the authenticity, but poor alignment can just be the byproduct of a quick respray where the body shop didn't spend the extra time to get everything straight.

I'm pretty sure your car had an accident .
Fitment and paintjob from your rear bumper looks really bad

It's hard to judge when the pics are not close enough...
I was talking about your 2 first pics , and like I said above these pics look pretty bad ( that was very clear)
Fitment looks off , and the repaint looks actually cheap .
I'm sorry man . But your rear bumper actually needs a propper fitment and a better repaint .

Doesn't the rear right look like it was previously smashed and poorly repaired? Honestly looks like they put 0 effort in. White overspray on the body plug too.

I have a hunch the bumper was "remanufactured"

Yeah I understand. I just saw the drips like a few days ago and it's been killing me so I had to take of the bumpers and see for myself. I guess time to look for a oem rear bumper

I don't understand why the rear driver side fender would have clear coat drip if the right side of the car was hit though?

Gotta remember we are dealing with an incompetent body shop. Who knows what they did.

Yeah just wanna say if you live in the Chicago area don't go to Law Auto Group in bensenville, IL. I should've figured when I went to check the car out they had a 2011 zcp e92 alpine white with red interior and it was crashed. After I bought my car I wanted to see how much they had listed that one for & I also checked the carfax on it, nothing was reported lol.

look down into your battery tray. see if its all jacked up. that what it looks like from the outside. might find a surprise... its really close to the little tab that bolts in and holds your battery secure.

Looks like there is some rust around the rear of the tray. I think you might be missing some fluff in the panel above the battery, but that's not as big of a deal. Have car fax buy that thing back.

The cars in that bad of condition? And that area that's been repaired that you can see on the right side is that my frame or no?
