need to price up the parts carefully...but on the face of it

Thing is though I did not see a mention of whether it was a cat C or D? Chances are it is but then again...

Almost 10k? That's a lot. For what, 3k you could have a new uncrashed one? This seems a bad idea.

Do'nt think anyone bought it from here, it sold anyway a couple of days ago.

Hmm. I still don't think I would. At 13k you could get a normal Abarth and just have it remapped. Ok, you don't get the sexy box with Abarth on the side or the 17" wheels but with the 5K saved I'm sure you find some

According to the listing the damage is unrecorded.

It's hard to tell from the photos, however the airbag hasn't gone off and all the important gaps look good, so there shouldn't be any major damage. Looks like a very easy repair.

Yea, I had pretty much assumed as much but as we all know too well sometimes perception and reality can be strange bed-fellows most of the time!
Good to get someone else's opinion tho to confirm what I had surmised.
As it's gone already I'll guess we'll never know now
