First FRS Purchase - Question !!

Hi, Im new here and I was looking at FRS's to purchase. I found this one that is a 2015 for $18.9K w/ 13k Miles, one owner no accidents.

On the front bumper where those screws appear to be, What goes there? Im sure when I get into it and learn more I'll know but because im new im not sure what that was for .

Car is at a dealership but obviously isn’t stock. Should i look for something else or ?

Not stock.

Likely he had some body kit screwed on to it. I personally would find something else.

He probably had canards and parted the car out before putting it for sale. Personally, it would be a priority for me to fill in the hole just because it would bother the crap out of me.

I would just put some TRD canards back on. I mean, you have a wing to go with them.

Very easy to install. Especially when you already have the holes

That actually sounds like a good price,but personally,I wouldn't buy it unless the dealer was willing to fix those holes. If they aren't,I would get an estimate from a body shop for the repair,and see if the dealer is willing to come down to whatever the difference of the repairs.

More than likely,the dealer is going to give you a hard time and wouldn't go for either of these option,but what the hell,you never know if you don't ask.

I like 3rdsun's suggestion the best if you go forward, but I'm in the pass camp. Someone removing parts to trade in/turn in lease would be a big no for me.

Looks like a car that was beat on and traded in. Find better.

Don't forget the mirror covers. Those might be carbon fiber.

Here is what used to be there:

I personally don't see it as a deal breaker if he brought it in for service with records and you can tell a lot about a car from the tire wear. He also ripped a front lip off the car before sale as well. I think its a huge opportunity...negotiate to have all the holes filled from the lip, canards and wing on the back. If they won't do it, walk away.
