Super beat 2003 ZHP (craigslist) for $10k
 
I dunno I suppose one would be lucky to even find a manual 330, not to mention a ZHP. Can a little love and care bring this old girl back to life? Or is she destined for the scrap yard. (or local high school parking lot)

High school parking lot followed by accident with airbag deployment /thread.

^^Hahaha

Just replacing those headlight lenses alone would take 10 years off that car! If the engine was reasonably well taken care of I wouldn't mind fixing all that other stuff up one by one. It could be a cool project for someone...or like you say be some high school dipwad's first car.

Well, at least it has the coveted silver cube trim.

Someone please rescue this car.

For only ten cents a day you can sponsor a neglected E46. Meet Imola. She doesn't even have clean gas to drink. She has a CEL and no owner's manual. Won't you please call today?

Mango 09-10-2012 05:46 PM

I almost like the car except for the beat interior. An interior is just too costly and time consuming to restore. Looks like someone was hauling christmas trees too... theres scratches/marks and missing trim by the panels where they meet the doors. but yeah i don't get how anyone lets their car get like that. speaks volumes for the maintenance that was done (or wasn't done)

Wow, it actually completely checks out. That's surprising...but it's gotta be full of mechanical issues.

Mango 09-10-2012 05:52 PM

interesting. i bet it smells though. that shift knob looks like it was manhandled by a very aggressive sweaty driver.

Zell 09-10-2012 05:54 PM

I legitimately thought they covered it in the greasiest Armor All they could find for a minute there...

The nice thing about the ZHP is that some dealers have no idea it's a ZHP, so they just sell it as a "sports package" car. Occasionally those will pop up and you can score a good deal.

Mango 09-10-2012 05:59 PM

yeah thats what i was thinking... price seems kind of alright i guess. maybe put $3,000 into it and it might turn out to be really nice. get a nice cut, polish wax, get a respray for bumpers, new headlight lenses, interior detail/restore...

I think it's a perfect project car.
Its not too beat up.

Are you thinking of buying this?

I agree - nothing beat up about it

Tament 09-10-2012 07:06 PM

Maybe something is wrong with my eyes, but I do not see what is so beat up about this one, However, the price to mileage is a bot out there, just my $0.02.

Except the seats and bumpers.

Deffinently not as beat up as my car when I got it. I guess i've ruined the reputation of all highschoolers that own E46s. Its okay. no highschoolers i know have $10,000 laying around to buy it...

cak323i 09-10-2012 07:26 PM

Have the car checked mechanically.....everything else is cosmetic....can be fixed in due time. If the car is mechanically sound then you have a good start to an awesome project :thumbsup:

My ZHP was beat up more than that one is body-wise and it's almost where I want it mechanically....cosmetics will be addressed next and I will have a fully sorted out ZHP. At least you will have one where the body seems in excellent shape to start out with. :) From the looks of it, I wouldn't call it super beat though....

And the front drivers sider fender....

Oh boohoo a little scratch. Me not want more anymore.

Solidjake 09-10-2012 08:33 PM

I'd buy it...
