that's a great price.

but i would check it out with a very careful eye (obviously). that price is almost too good to be true for an '04 ZHP with decent mileage, in Canada.

The price is reflective of the car.

It's an 8 year old car that has almost 170 k. Problems are just around the corner. Don't kid yourself boyz.

It also does not include the factory rims (no summers) and there are a spots of crust under the car (it's an 04!!!) that a fussy person like myself would need to attend to on a hoist.

So it's not that GREAT of a price.

It's reflective of the price of these cars in the US market maybe.

Take a look at what these cars are going for here in Canada. You'll find this is indeed a lower than average price. Not to mention it is a Quebec car... Which can mean a lot of things.

But yes, depending on the condition (rust and what not) this could be an accurate price.
Also, I wouldn't expect an '04 to have much rust. I have an '00 E46 with almost 250k, which incidentally has no rust. I've owned the car since new which may play a factor in that, but just something to think about.

Anyways, good luck.

Its ok, its the truth. They also often abuse cold engines in the winter, flooring them, and don't do any maintenance like oil changes. I lived there first hand and frankly a ton and i mean 1 in every 3 was burning oil. The smell on the streets is horrid for a car lover, because as one you know what you are smelling

In fact quebec killed what was left of my balljoints and bushings and I seldom drove, never drove hard there.

Now i am replacing all my bushings, control arms, engine mounts, shocks and springs, everything. ( some i have already finished once i got back to ontario)
