Talk about messed up panel lines

Was just looking around to get an idea of F80 prices and found this gem!

i thought they popped the hood in the photo, but it's actually terrible body panel alignment. Probably one of the worst I've ever seen aside from a straight up accident.

There are dual latches on the hood with secondary catches. One side is not fully latched.

No, the hood latches are adjustable. Pop the black plastic piece out and you'll see that the hood latch is threaded. So the hood of that car is either not fully closed (more likely) or the right latch is not adjusted correctly.

I agree, let's hope they didn't dent the hood not knowing how to slam it.
