    Default Anyone near Walnut able to potentially look at a car?

    I'm interested in a car for sale in Walnut, I trust all of your guys' judgment on cars, so if anyone is near Walnut and would be willing to go look at a car for me, I'd happily compensate your time!

    Thanks for the call William, sorry I was scattered, had multiple people talking to me at once and dinner had just been put on the table, but I appreciate the call, hopefully you or someone can check it out this weekend! Doesn't have to be an expert, I know any of you guys can evaluate how a car looks/sounds/drives and tell how it's been treated.

    '03? Things to look out for (that I remember from my 03).

    1. grease streak on the drivers windshield. THeres a TSB out for it.
    2. thread fraying on the seats.
    3. Front tires "cupping" aka "feathering". The insides of the tires would go bald fast.
    4. Porpoising. I think this effected all Z's from 03. Imagine driving on the 110 north through downtown on the worn cement freeway. The car would pickup this weird up and down porpoising motion which I found incredibly annoying. Fixed with aftermarket coilovers but still.

    I also hated the hugemongeous blind spots and the overactive VDC which can't be completely turned off (yea I know theres a button, but hit the brakes once and the braking part of the vdc comes back on, only way to really shut it off is to pull the ABS fuse which of course, causes you not to have abs). Of course, that effects all Z's.

    But its a good looking car, high school chicks dig Z's way more than evos... ha ha j/k. Not that either of us are anywhere near that age.

    Thanks Danny, I remember all those things from when I was looking to buy a Z in early 04. Hopefully they've all passed or been taken care of by now. As for high school chicks, I'm only 20, I still have a shot! Right?

    We sold all of the Zs already but I can get you one if you're interested. Please let me know if you need help with the inspection.
