New here, but a Ford owner for the last 21 years or so - never had anything else.
I have been lucky to date, either talking cars from family or purchasing new so I always know the history of the cars I drove.
After a spate of expensive repairs on my 07 plate Focus, I bit the bullet and made a hasty purchase of an 11 plate Mondeo Tit+ at my local franchised dealer who repaired the Focus.
Within an hour of picking it up, it appeared the o/s rear door had been (badly) repaired. Fair play to the Dealer - back it went and a week later it was all fine.
I thought I should have a closer look all round and spotted a two-tone front bumper and also these odd markings under the bonnet (an "S" above the n/s shock and a white spot on something I cant tell what it is. Pic below
The car has only done 13k miles, so all relatively clean - I wondered if these markings are likely to be original or a sign of repaired parts? They just jumped out at me as odd.
Any guidance appreciated.

Thanks Clive - just frustrating that I had trusted the dealer to be honest with me.
Car drives lovely - delighted with it. Just feel a little cheated about its condition.
Next up is a root around on the Forums to understand the Convers+ Roms (currently 1217) and what can/cannot be accommodated on the GEM.
Appreciate the swift response.
