    Hi mates,

    thanks a lot for your comments!
    I wrote a message to buland!

    Here is a link to the car I am talking about:
    https://home.mobile.de/VPCARSTUDIO#des_246042178

    Is there a list which I can check to find it clear if this Boss is ok?

    36k USD is a reasonable price for an Boss here in Europe, if he is in a perfect shape and without an accidental Damage even if it was repaired. Here in Switzerland we have 2 white an 1 red 2012 Boss to sell wit Prices between 44k to 66k USD
    and 3 LS between 60k and 70k USD. One 2013 GHIG is listed for 99k USD :) and one RR 2013 for 48k USD. In Germany they haven't so much Boss to sell.
    But many of these Boss in Germany are Salvagecars which were repaired in Eastern Europe.

    @OrangeSoul Use Carfax to check the Status of this Boss. As i wrote you in the PM it's not for free, but the Price isn't to high to find out if something happens with the Boss.

    @VoodooBoss no it's a Boss with 1200 miles and the last here in Switzerland with so few miles. the owner gambles to make money with the Boss.

    I'd generally put the value at 1/4 to 1/3 less than a clear title for any given market. The price sounds decent considering. I'd want to look at all the telltale bolt heads to figure out what's been touched/modified/replaced. I'd knock down the price a bit for the painted (and probably repaired) rims.

    Make sure you check everything or bring someone to look carefully at the car and not just cosmetically. Get under the frame, the hood and inside the car. Nothing wrong with repaired if it's done correctly.

    New member here, I have an update on one of the wrecked cars:

    Boss #0882 VIN 1ZVBP8CU9C5224423 - Competition Orange / Black - 46690mi - damage to LF corner, bumper bar, frame rail, no airbags deployed, likely repairable, up for auction in GA, April 2015

    This car was fixed then titled in IN in 2015 and ended up in SC in 2016. I purchased the car last week and it now resides in Charlotte, NC.

    Welcome @MattRMedina! Nice to see another CO Boss salvaged! You've come to the best place if you still need any original parts. Post pics when you can...I'd like to hear the story of how you ended up with #0882.

    Thanks! CO is definitely the fastest color! I don’t know the story of the car as the person that sold it to me had bought it after it was repaired. Other than the paint not being blended perfectly, it is nearly impossible to tell it was a salvage car.


    When I bought it there were some gaudy 20” True Forged wheels that I have since sold and replaced with S550 PP wheels. Other than that all I’ve done is fresh fluids, new KNS rotors and G-Loc R8/R6 pads.

    I was fortunate enough to take part in my first track day ever at VIR last month. Now I’m hooked...

    Looking enormous next to my Z project!

    He's hooked! Welcome to TMO. What year is your Z car? I had a 1977 280Z and 1993 300ZX TT.

    It is a 76, I am in the process of swapping in an RB20 from an early 90s skyline. Should be a fun little car once it is done. I always dreamed about having an orange Z, somehow ended up with an orange Mustang and a blue Z.
