Within the state small used car lot just listed a 2015 SHO. Excellent cosmetic condition. Carfax shows two owners with Salvage Title.

-dealership asking $14600USD
-41,100 miles

I’ve wanted a SHO since they came out. Never had one. Came close with this 2012 in the previous thread. Sidebar...They called me back yesterday! They did $1100 worth of work to it and offered me a price $5000 above my last offer. I said no. Then they said you've got to meet us some of the way. I lol'd and said- 'No I don't actually'. It's been on the lot for 8 weeks. Then I walked out (again).

Anyway, back to this 2015 with the salvage title.

I’m asking for the wisdom of the forums. What more should I watch out for?

-I get an independent mech inspection
-get the Carfax
-find out details about the damage and the salvage ( the ad volunteers front end damage repaired)
-if it checks out mechanically (I know to check turbos/PTU) what price should I shoot for?

I have the VIN. Any good resources for factory options list? (Monroney sticker?)

My guess is the low kms has something to do with the salvage title (sitting in a lot somewhere for who knows how long).

Run, don't walk, away from any flood damaged vehicle. I think you have the right plan though. The details you discover will tell you what to do.

Yep, run from that flood damaged car. Actually sprint.
