i bought my 99 740i sport a few months ago, and the other day when i was waxing it i noticed a few things that look like signs of an accident. the front passenger side fender has a small scratch on it that looks like it was painted with touch up and sanded, looks almost perfect but you can see indents. that is on the very top corner of the fender, nearest the passenger side window. on the same corner, on the roof pillar that goes on the edge of the roof, there is a scratch down to the metal that you cant really see unless you get close. it is right in the spot where the fender would impact if it got hit and was jammed into the door/door area. then i noticed the sheetmetal edges dont line up exactly perfect (maybe .5 cm off), but the drivers side does. i also notice the pass. front door doesnt shut as easily as the otehr 3 doors. it takes a little bit more effort to close that door, and when you do from the inside of the car you can hear a little rattling noise on the inside of the roof/cieling.
when i bought the car the dealer did a carfax check and it came up clean, and there was no record of an accident anywhere. so i bought it at 63k miles at encinitas ford. the only problems i had with the car was a front end clunk noise that is a worn out front control arm. the car drives perfectly straight, and the tire wear is all normal thank god.
tomorrow i can get pics of everything in the light, but i only have a cell phone camera so quality wont be that great, if you need to see the areas i am talking about.
