im going to look at a couple salvage 328's, whats the best way of telling if the frame is bent, i know they use lazers and shit, but how much does that cost to have done?

btw - its light body damage, bumper, hood, left headlights/corner, wheel well panel thing, grill, grill inset? im thinking 1200 to fix?

if they say its not bent can i trust them? a bmw mechanic i know is going to be looking at it too.

If they put the car on a frame straightener, you should be able to tell visually. There will be marks left on the inside edge of the frot quarter panels once the hood is popped. I'm no expert on this, but that's what I've been told...
