Just for clarification I own a ZHP Steptronic; compromise for the wife. Running great even after putting 80K miles over 4 years. I'm the 2nd owner and have full records since it was sold from the dealer (Stevens Creek).
Future cars have to have a similar setup- SMG II, dual clutch or step.
I've been looking for an EVO X MR touring or SE due to the TC-SST (dual clutch) but have not found one in the mileage (below 40K) or price range I want to spend (below $30K) with the Technology package (Nav & Rockford Fosgate stereo system/speakers).
Here's the specs on the perspective car:
06 M3 SMG II coupe
2 owner car- current owner has owned it since 07 and picked it up with 8K.
Full records, dealer serviced
ZCP but no Nav
Black on Black (unfortunately not Interlagos Blue)
I'll check it out tomorrow, current owner is a friend of my friend and it's not abused. Car has never been to auto-x or track days.
Been researching the SMG II and the most expensive part is the pump assembly ($2K). Most common failures are the relays which can be fixed for $15 a piece.
