I noticed that too. It looks like the hood stopper on that corner needs to be raised a tad. 5-second fix.

Its actually black, ill see if any of my other pics came out good enough to post.

The rubber part of the pass. hood bumper is missing causing the misalignment. Never been in an accident to my knowlegde. More than a fair share of small bug/rock chips though, both rear doors have lil dings, car has been parked on the curb a few times, etc. Front lenses all in good shape save for LH headlamp, rear lenses all in mint shape Theres a scratch on the roof behind the moon roof glass thats too deep to be buffed out. Rear bumper paint faded.

you have a very nice car yourself sir, gonna have to take a closer look at that headlight and get back to you

this is how I rolled in today, dirty and low air pressure




after a nice duragloss wash, i was too lazy to polish it when it may just have to be repainted






no interior shots till i get the previous owners mess cleaned up, i just recently bought the car
