just when I thought my search was over, half of you scared the crap out of me with your thoughts on the Allroad. But a late contender has arrived. He emailed me after the post late last night

He is a repair shop. he bought the car at auction so has little knowledge of the car. It had some front end damage including hood radiator and compressor which have all been replaced with new parts and painted the front end. he said there was no damage to the bumper.

could anyone run a carfax for me? I’d love to see the history. I was thinking of offering $6k if and only if the timing chain can be proven to have been replaced.
