On a 2015 R8, totally worth it to do a full inspection, including paint thickness.

Not sure yet. I'm somewhere between "not interested at any price" to "okay this is going to cost them a lot".

I'm going to talk to the tech to see what his thoughts are. And maybe put it though a body-shop inspection to see what a pro thinks.

But this is a special edition, numbered car that had an original MSRP of mid-200s. So even a modest hit on its value due to this is likely going to be tens of thousands. Unless they can find someone who doesn't care or doesn't check.

No, it was a different brand of luxury dealer that took it in on trade.

Or it happened at the dealership pre-purchase.

That is some shady business, reminds me of the VW I bought with the obvious non factory hood/front end paint "clean title."

What did the owner/dealer say when you asked them if it had any accidents or work done to it? If they lied to you I would leave it alone because 9/10 times it's the tip of the iceberg and they are lying about lots more.

Just another example of how Carproof means dick all.

You can have an insurance claim on a car but it still depends if the repair shop reports their work on record.

Good due diligence!

The dealer said they didn't know. I almost half believe them. It's just not worth it.

I'm disappointed. I've been on the hunt for an R8 for a while now, and it's been a pain in the ass.

This was a very special car, as it is an LM edition. They made 8 for Canada, one in each color, so it's a 1 of 1, in some ways. No kijiji beater here.

Back to the drawing board.

Carproof is useless for odo readings

With my Hummer I had to fight with them for nearly 2 weeks to remove the reading of 123,456 from the record when I sold it.

What had happened was I had dropped off some rims and new tires that needed mounting for one of my other cars, and when they were invoicing the shop just ran it through on a VIN they had in the computer and entered 123456 as the odo reading to get to the next entry page.

I'd forget it personally, too risky and most dealers are shady AF.

Sorry to hear that though man, sounds like a super awesome (rare) version.

Here's a video of the actual car that a car-spotter shot in Toronto.



The LM was a highly lightened version of the R8, with a bump to 570hp, more carbon interior bits, and a bunch of other stuff.
