    Thanks so much!!!
    CarFax is clean, although car checks like that aren't infallible. The car has been in Florida its entire life it seems. Mileage is decent but you'll have to ask about maintenance history to see what maintenance items have been done (cooling system overhaul, oil change frequency, brakes, suspension, spark plugs, etc). It's Oriental Blue (color of my car, I love it) on cloth/alcantara interior so it'll be up to you if you like that or not. It has neither the Cold Weather Package (heated front seats, headlight washers, fold down rear seats, ski bag) nor the Premium Package (lumbar support, auto dimming rearview mirror, BMW assist, leather upholstery). This particular car doesn't have the OEM style 135 wheels (I'm not sure if the wheels pictured are OEM BMW or not).

    Overall the car looks relatively clean, no visible huge or dents from the photos. There are a few odds and ends that'll need to be fixed. Personally I think it's a bit high priced given the mileage, automatic transmission, non-OEM wheels, and lack of packages, but maybe that's just me. It is from a dealer so the price will tend to be higher.

    In the end you have to decide what it is a need vs. what is a "want" out of a ZHP. Do you need leather upholstery? Do you need a manual transmission? That kind of thing.

    My initial impression is I love the color. Not sure about the wheels (I'd want to know more about them). It's missing passenger fog light which makes me question other stuff. I'd have to replace both visors (missing safety warnings), drivers seat bolster has wear through to piling, steering wheel is in rough shape. Tear in one of the door panels, intake filter cover is scratched, rust on caliper. I like the mileage. In person you may find the paint to be in rough shape, as well as the interior black cube trim. I'd want some maintenance history.

    Not enthusiast owned imho.

    Just shooting from the hip here.

    Gentlemen, your intellect is needed on this. I came across this ZHP on craigslist and on here as well. Went to check out the car and it's really clean with all the maintenance history. The gentleman who currently owns it is just the second owner. Being a 10+ year old car, I'd like to know if the price is right. Thanks!

    Price doesn't look too bad for mileage but hard to see the pictures on my phone. I like the color. Wheels would have to go though

    Rusty Calipers in Santa Monica

    I'm wondering if rusty brake calipers on a So Cal car should be a concern. Also I would not mind someone's thoughts on this particular ZHP. Thanks.

    Yes I'd be concerned. I've spent time there and it is dry. There are cars out there that shouldn't exist, with their original paint faded to hell, with no rust. So I would not expect it, but maybe someone else can chime in.
