X-Post. Should I pull the trigger?

So I have located another one about 40 miles south of me.

http://www.familytoyotaofburleson.co...TX/vd/29095095

The dealer sent me photos that I have attached.

09 G8 GT. Looks like Sport and Premium Packages. 81k Miles. I pulled the car fax and in 2013 it was in an accident. The carfax does not have any details about it. I am going to drive down there tomorrow after work and take a look. It looks super clean in the pictures. These pictures are before the car was washed and detailed.

Sorry for x-posting. Trying to get this done quick. I don't see this one lasting very long. I am trading in a very nice 2014 Kia Optima SX-T for this G8. Mainly to get my ex-wifes name off of my car and to lower the payment a bit. I also really really miss my 08 GT.

Thoughts?

I have decided to pull the trigger. This car is immaculate. Only question now is do I get the extended warranty?

If the engine isn't purring like a kitten (signs of lifter tick), I'd buy the warranty.

I didnt hear any lifter ticker before or after the test drive. I did hear some whine from the motor during hard acceleration. I don't remember if my 08 did that or not.

I'd want to know more about the accident. What parts were replaced...

Got any engine bay pics? Check for markings on bolts from wrenching.
