Guys, I just picked up this 9th gen and my friend pointed something out to me. He says the fender has a dent and a crease in the metal by where it meets the hood.

I just got this car, guys. Do you think that's from a wreck? Not sure what could cause this :/

Noticed that too. Will be fixing that this weekend. I don't think that's the cause for the dents in my fenders though lol

Could of been somebody took off the fender and cowl to work on the car and weren't careful with it. I had to take off my cowl to install my strut tower bar and it's a hassle to take off.
