Default Just bought an f type on a salvage auction Help!

So I just won a bid on a 2016 jaguar f type S with 22k miles. I have yet to get it in person but I paid around 17k as is. Please tell me how I did? I was originally looking to buy an evora but this car really swayed me by the looks.

Welcome to the forums Jose Torres,

Very brave. I wish you the best of luck.

I can see you've already found your way to the F-Type forum with this question so there's no need for a link to it from me.

Please add vehicle details to your Signature to help others to give relevant advice. Go to the User CP button on the left of the top menu bar, then Settings & Options under Your Control Panel. Select Edit Signature and enter the details.

You can also visit the US Western Region forum by following this link to find other members in your region.

Man, that thing is cool. Most of those scratches look like they will buff right out. They even drew arrows to show you where to fit the bumper back on. LOL. All kidding aside this is exactly the kind of decision that i have been known to make, not just with cars, but with women, pinball machines, and various other "projects" over the years. Good luck Jose, keep us posted on your project. I hope it turns out well for you.

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I am arranging shipment to hopefully have it delivered sometime early this coming week.

I would be interested in the gap between the rear hatch and the rear fender marked in the picture. That is a long way away from the front end damage. I would bring it to the body shop and put it on the rack to see how straight it is before I did anything. Good luck and please let us know how things are going.
