    NO! Salvage title and he's the one stuck trying to get rid of it. Someday...you'd be the guy stuck trying to get rid of it. It has shit for value and he wants you to put money on top? No. If it was a straight trade and you wanted a change....okay. But you'd still be that guy stuck trying to get rid of it someday

    Plus that thing is a slug slug slug (sorry if I hurt any 99/00 Si owners but that car is a tank with 100lbs of torque)
    Its barely worth the amount he wants you to put on top. Your swap is worth more then his car. Shit....his motor is worth 3 times the price of the shell.

    Salvage title isn't 'always' bad. In this case of it being salvaged due to an accident, then yeah, i'd stay away. I've had a ton of friend's who's cars were salvaged because they got stolen and the interior taken. Motor and trans left perfectly fine.

    I'd say run a carfax if you ever wanted to purchase a salvaged title car but in this case you know it was in an accident so just stay away lol...
