depends on the extent of the front end damage..
could be a relatively cheap repair, or could be VERY expensive..

you need more details before making the decision

are you able to view the car before you buy it?

you might notice things that are damaged such as the intercooler/radiator, headlights, foglights, battery etc...
all those bits alone will add up to a few hundred squid..

thats wihout the cost of replacement panels, or bodyshop work to sort out the wing/s bumper, bonnet subframe etc..

see how much a similar mileage mint 5 is going for, to work out how much you can afford to spend on repairs to make it a good deal..

Front end repairs on evo's can be expensive depending on if any of the whizz-bangery that makes it work has been damaged or not.
