Hi, nice looking zed 8)
Is it a 3.0si? Not a huge amount you can easily do to improve the performance of those as 262bhp isn’t bad from a 3litre normally aspirated engine to start with :thumbsup:

Nice colours... interior with subtle red leather & stitching on dash, lush,

I think u purchased righ first time with a real cracker of a car on 108’s & M sport seats. If u have speakers behind the seats it’ll have the upgraded stereo like my old one which was awesome

Welcome & roll on summer

Very nice looking car, like the sport seats. Had my Z for 6 months or so and don’t know why I didn’t buy one sooner.
My advice is to make sure everything works as it should and servicing is up to date then you can prioritise what you do to it. A ZHP gearknob is a cheap and nice addition.

Thanks for the welcome and comments... Can I ask how reliable the 2.0 engines are? I did a fair amount of homework but I'm guessing no one knows better than you guys
