    You did a beautiful job and put in a lot of hard work to make a custom ZHP wagon - truly a unique vehicle. I commend you and I tip my hat to you. Hopefully you find someone in the ZHP Mafia Family who will give it a good home.

    When you do find a good home for it, I understand if you shed a tear or two. It is hard to say goodbye sometimes. I lost a non ZHP 330Ci convertible after being rear ended by a Kia. It pulled at my heart strings that the insurance company totaled it and I had to say goodbye and I didn't have anywhere near the amount of work into it as you. Best of luck, but I hope that you find a way to keep it in your garage.

    Thanks for the kind words, I hope no one ever has to have that happen with their car. I hope my touring goes to someone that cares for it as much as I do. I have not listed it in any other platform yet, hoping it goes to a forum member first.

    E46 wagons never came with a 6 speed, it would have to be a retrofit/upgrade by the owner.

    We talked but I'm waiting to get my old one back, the current owner said he'll likely sell within the next year.

    GLWS! This is truly a one of a kind beauty!

    A Venza just isn't the same as a ZHP.

    This is a very interesting car! What would it take to convert to a manual? Cost and time? Are there any issues? I've heard a new odometer is needed, a tamper dot can potentially be thrown, issues with firewall, etc.

    I am glad you asked this because it was on my list to do if I was keeping the car.

    You don't need a new odometer unless you are bothered by leaving the screen for the gear selector. Or you can find spare parts and remove it.

    The automatic has an extra window that manual cars don't have on the instrument cluster. It is used to show what gear is selected on the automatic shift lever.
    You can, in theory, continue to use the automatic instrument cluster, but it might be a little funky because there'd be a display active that no longer applies to the car. I don't know what that behavior might be.

    You would need another instrument cluster, which you'd then have to code to the car, otherwise you'll get a tamper dot. I'm not sure if a new DME is needed; I know there is a computer, or a part of the computer, that is for the automatic transmission. Cost would probably be a couple of grand, not including the price of the transmission. 6-speed manuals for ZHP's typically cost between $1200-1500. I'd probably double that including parts and labor, at a minimum, depending on shop labor rates and knowledge.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
