car is in pretty good shape. you can see in 2 of those pictures where they tried to use touch up paint, but i caught it. the scratches aren't as bad as the pictures dictate because i took close up pictures. the front bumper is in pretty good shape, except someone doesn't know how to park when there is a curb in front of them, so there are some scratches under it. can't really notice it unless you look for it, which i did. that one spot on the wheel in the picture above is the ONLY marking on any of the wheels. interior is in great shape. underhood was almost mint. no leaks, no nothing. front tires are down to the wear indicators, so it'll need fronts right away. rears are about 40-50% tread life left. brakes look pretty worn as well. will probably need them real soon. overall, for the $25k they want, i personally wouldn't buy it because all those little scratches bother me. even tho it has only 14k miles on it, there are just too many spots on the car with small scratches which will only get worse with time. the left rear quarter panel has a small dent right above the LR wheel, which is the first thing i noticed. it's totally up to you what you do from here my man, but if it was me, i wouldn't do it just because of all the LITTLE scratches. if you can get it down to 20k, i'd take it. but not for 25.

It looks a lot worse than it really is. Those scratches n shit are all pretty small. I just took up close shots of them. But I do agree, I wouldn't buy it either. Especially because the dealer is asking top dollar for it.
