A lot of people get scared about unrecorded write off. They are normally very easy to spot with a paint thickness gauge.

Just measure every panel at 4 different points and you will know if the car has been repainted and how many panels were affected.

As a matter of principle, I never buy a car that has been repainted even if if it is the front bumper/bonnet due to stone chips.

I thought paint thickness gauges only work on metal panels? A lot of 981 parts are plastic - front/rear/side sills.
