Welcome to Max.

If the motor was recently rebuilt before 170,000KM, I would have to question that. Was it over revved? I seriously hope it wasn't do to engine fatigue at only 170K.

With the rebuilt title, and engine rebuild (at only 170K), I would probably not get this car.

It might be a different story if you have full documentation on the rebuilt title (after accident, and pictures), and the how the engine was rebuilt.

looks really good, but the rebuild title is taking a pretty big risk , also being a 318 its pretty slow...so unless ur planning an engine swap i wouldnt get it if you want speed
