This car is described as having medium rear quatre damage.

What do you guys think, is it worth purchasing and fixing, or am i looking at a few grands repairs?

I am thinking it might just be a new rear quatre, but maybe the chasis is bent?

Anyone know prices of rear quatre's and where i could get one from?

If its just the rear 1/4 it shouldnt be to bad, though welding a new 1/4 in wont be cheap.

You need to make sure the impact hasnt effected the chassis and twisted it, also, if the tree / lampost the car hit also caught the wheel has it done damage to the rear subframe - not good when its a BMW and RWD with driveshafts, diff etc all on the rear frame.

Thing is, i can get it real cheap, and if the repair bill is less than the car is worth, then can make a reasonable profit, don't have a clue what these things are worth frown

Looks a tad risky, maybe you could take a bmw rim and ask to drive it a few yards? If you're interested in buying a car to do up and sell on I found this on ebay last night, a visit to the scrappies and a respray would see it sorted smile

I personally wouldn't buy a car with any damage to it like that.

You should do your civic up!

I am not a massive fan of the compact 316 bit on the slow side. 5000 will see you with a good 316 and about 7000 will see you with a good sport. Not many modded one's about so if you were to get it you could have a car that not alot of people have. They can look good 2.



If i were to get a E34 (the shape the compact is) i would go for the none compact but thats just my choice. They are RWD and thats a great amount of fun.
