Basically, John, the passenger fender is pretty well flattened, huge nasty looking dent all the way down it and about 6" into the door. Looks like somebody sideswiped it.

Andrew, have a little fun with it before you resell it. That car might surprise you...

since I was playing dumb, I asked about what all needs to be done since it has a supercharger. He knew that there was supercharger oil that needed to be replaced, but didnt know where it went. he pointed to the engine oil filler in question

he also said that he runs premium only everything other fillup.. so he would get 89, 91, 89, 91, etc....

Make sure to scan that puppy ASAP. God only kows how often he'* forgotten which fill-up he'* on. And besides which, as Peter can tell you, I have a seriously low opinion of BP/Amoco/Duke. Their quality control is legendarily BAD. I've heard everything about them. From sending out tankers full of fuel that had no additives, to the occasional load with way to much alcohol, to just plain watery crap. Not to mention that they have a history of environmental offenses that make the Valdez incident look like small potatoes.
Add to that a history of putting their franchisees out of business by setting up corporately owned stations within sight of successful franchise stores, and pricing their corporate stations several cents lower.

I'm so jealous. I thought I had a good deal on my 99 SLE, but that thing rocks! You are extremely lucky.
