I have tried to find/contact the original owner but have had no luck.

I suspect drivers side front damage as the drivers side fender paint is not perfect. I do not believe the airbags deployed but I am not 100% sure there. The nice thing about this situation is that the accident happened at 8 or 9 thousand miles, and the car now has 57,000 miles. I've put almost 30,000 of those on myself, including a long road trip (around 2500 miles in a week) this spring with no problems.

I drive this car 120 miles/day every day through the winter and summer and haven't had problems. All required maintenance is up to date, timing belt, water pump, etc are all done so it should be a worry free car for some time.

I think it would make a great daily driver. I might think about putting the stock size springs back on (which I have) just because it sits a bit low but on the other hand I drove it this low all last winter.
