Thank you, glad to be apart of the community. Been researching the forums and everything I could find about these cars for the past month, didnt even leave the dealership parking lot before coding the hold charge.
There were a few issues but nothing that seemed like a truly serious problem that couldnt be attended to. When i got there all the proper wheels were on there, not a scratch on them. Rears have about half life on them. Floor mats looked brand new. The small accident appears to be something to that got hit on the lower right rocker panel, front fender had a little warping that didnt look flush and the small rocker panel plate was missing probably all from the tow truck which i explain below, cheap replacement part, fender not that cheap though but its hard to see. Interior didn't show any wear and tear or any stains.
I'm happy with the car but just strange they couldn't tell me how they got the car, i believe it was repo car (hence why the low miles and no keys because key they provided was new) and the repo people damaged the car while getting towed and it sat for awhile in the sun for who knows how long, probably broke the door handles trying to get into the car as well, 12v battery died which probably caused other issues. That's the only story i can think of that makes sense from what the carfax says and other info that you guys brought up. The car being dirty was most likely from it sitting in a tow yard. But they did clean it up well. I did ask them why they posted those horrible photos of the car, no real response but that they needed to rush photos, guess they didn't want to sell the car, i took a chance and drove 4 hours to pick it up, then i get a call the next day telling me i had to go back because they left 5 sets of keys in the car from the other i3s they had there and that i had to come back, said no but that they could send someone to come pick them up. I do wish they fixed everything before selling it but i guess they couldnt afford it even though they charge mark ups and unnecessary addons that you're forced to buy.
Anyways, car was worth it to me, once i get the minor things fixed I'll start working on little upgrades, like getting a paint correction for some of the swirls & clearcoat imperfections and a ceramic coating, thinking of also going with lower suspension and struts.
