    Bryant's Imola/6MT ZHP

    As some of you guys know, I am the new owner of a 2004 IR/6MT Sedan ZHP with only 83k miles! I started my search about a year ago and gave up because I was having zero luck. Then one day I randomly logged back on to ZHPmafia and went to classifieds and saw a ZHP that caught my eye. I wasn't even looking to buy, but the deal was too good. I am so excited about this car. The quality of it is so much better than my previous car. I love modifying cars so that I can make it my own. My progression thread may be a little slow though, as I am a 20-year-old college student, so maintenance must come first! I bought the car for a really great deal. After thorough inspections of the car, the only thing it needs mechanically is a new oil feed line, it is dripping just a tad bit of oil and maybe new shocks soon. Cosmetically, it is in decent shape with some things I am going to fix.

    Here are some pictures:

    Hello there ! What about a new set of Khoalty headlight lenses ? They go for $80 ... $124 if you order the seals. Maybe you can start with this and then retrofit later.

    Makes sense. Oh, about the brakes. Dont know what kind of pads you have. The OEM make a lot of brake dust. On the e90 I changed to Akebono ceramic pads and love the results. Perhaps you can consider this when it's time to replace the brake pads.

    I'll look into it! Thanks! My buddy has a 335i and he gets a ton of brake dust.

    I just want better light output, and I'm not going to get that with Halogens. And the retrofit is only like $200, which is a good upgrade to me.

    OK. I was pretty happy with the halogens on my last car. But if it's only ~$200...

    I mean,,, the output of these halogens is much better than the halogens on my previous car. Maybe I will get the new lenses and then I can decide if I want to do the retrofit or not.

    Sound plan. I need new lenses on my car too.
