335i Coupe -09 DMV total loss in Texas, now sold in Sweden; can pictures be located?

Hi, I've seen the car in the title with very low milage (24000mi / 39000km) for sale at a really good price (20000) for a long time now.

Interested in why it was not getting sold I got a carfax report on it.
It's been in a car crash involving a left front impact in Texas.
The car was written off as a total loss, airbags where deployed.

It was then sold to Lithuania and finally imported into Sweden and is now being sold by a private seller.

Is it possible to acquire pictures of how the car looked after the crash in the US somehow?
The cars VIN is: WBAWB73519P046426
And the salvage title certificate number is: #29730040699145039

In Sweden the car has now passed two vehicle inspections since being imported. And it also looks good on pictures but they are quite small.
It's this one: http://www.blocket.se/ostergotland/B....htm?ca=17&w=3
So far I've only mailed the seller but he has not gotten back to me yet. (It's not been long).

You can google texas DMV and reachout to them. I'm thinking someone imported the car as junk, repaired it and now selling it. Here total loss cars are difficult to sell. Plus here in Texas no one would pay half of 20k euros.

Yea, what I referred to as "good price" was of course before knowing the car had been in a crash.
When I got the carfax report on it I understood why the price was much lower than cars with similar milage & build date.

Ohh sweet, when I Googled the salvage title certificate number & VIN before creating the post Google did not locate it.
Guess it must have indexed it now because I did the search a couple of days ago...
Thank you very much!

Wrecked in Texas, then shipped and repaired by Eastern Europeans... That is a red flag for me mate...
