    New ZHP owner - Seattle Area

    Welp, I finally purchased a ZHP! It has a little more miles (180K) than I was hoping for, but I justified it with the maintenance logs and work done....., as well as rising prices (have come close to buying a few on BAT).

    Car is a 2004 Sedan in IR with the 6MT and Alcantara interior. The interior is in great shape which was another bonus. I look forward to the community and meeting any local ZHP owners (in the Seattle Area, Bothell).

    First up is to remove the tint (wavy and dark), and replace with something lighter as well as hopefully get the dull 3M clear bra off the hood.

    -Bryan

    Welcome from Edmonds! Hope to see you around - look for me in a 2004 Imola sedan, usually on the two-lane scenic drives in Snohomish County.

    Welcome! No worries about the high mileage, with proper maintenance these cars can go a long way. BP's car (IR sedan just like yours) is a very good example

    Welcome Bryan Your mileage is just a number as long as you focus on keeping your ZHP maintained... as the saying goes "maintenance before mods" but mod where you can using OEM+ or better parts while doing maintenance...

    My M3 is a good example of this and I have been focusing the same philosophy towards my ZHP as I am in the process of restoring this car little by little... there are lots of good example cars here with lots of knowledge from people here on this forum.
