I don't know why people keep saying it's 30k off a new car... it's a 2013, and I bought my new 2013 well below the original invoice. So really, it's priced 15k less than a NEW, PERFECT 2013 with the same options, so it's not that great of a deal.

The person who is going to make money is the guy who fixed it and sells it to someone for 30k. BTW I found two other identical cars with 1k (or less) in mileage that had salvage titles that were selling for 30k.

Have a look at the gap between the front pillar passenger wiper, and front fender...

I'd rather take my 35K and buy a brand new 2014 base IS250 than this.
