Mein Auto: 2005 ZHP, Wife's Prius
Oddly enough my AW e46 left me the day after.....my wife traded it in for a Prius while I was at work. The dealership was accommodating in allowing my to swap out the clears today for the stock ambers. Tomorrow I have to swing by and remove the 5-spd ZHP shifter. I feel your pain buddy.

Smolck -- nice thread about the death and burial of the frankenZHP. I missed this thread when it was first posted and just read/watched it through.

Actually, that's kinda neat, it looks like the crusher came with the flatbed trailer? Eh. At least the car got picked over pretty thoroughly before getting sent to the metal toothpick factory in China right?

I know right?! She did it on a Sat at lunch while I was at work. Our conversation not 15min before included the words "Do no buy today, keep the Xi for the winter at the least". Unfortunately the context must have been murky. That car creeps me the F out, it's automatic so no use of clutch and it goes silent when you're under 25mph. I keep thinking I stalled the thing.

Still...seeing an estimated range of ~545 miles makes this a long trip machine. Glad I got to take the ZHP from NJ to Pittsburg, PA.....in 4.5hrs

You think I'm leaving anything other than stock on the Xi, it's nice to have a second e46 to swap the parts onto.
