Could be a steal. Looks like someone install a sound system upgrade and had it repo'ed. Repo garage stole the system out because they have to resell the car as stock as possible. Adjuster offered it up for auction. Has steal written all over it. lol

Did you Google the VIN? Sometimes you get lucky and can identify a former owner. And if you do inspect it in person and have the keys, check for saved NAV locations. See if the person's "home" is saved.

I always tell people that you cannot see the engine under my hood no matter how hard you look. Even with the bumper and radiator off you can only see the flywheel.

I think you mean the crankshaft pulley.....the flywheel is on the rear side of the engine between the engine and the transmission.

Yes, that occurred to me later, but I was too lazy to edit.

Left front cooler is an "auxiliary radiator"
Right front is "engine oil cooler"
