My wife and I are moving to a retirement community downtown. Costs $200/month for each car you want to park, so we decided to go with just one. The Z is obviously not the practical one to keep. On top of that, the parking is valet only. I don't think I trust them to be gentle with my 6 speed manual. I've loved it for the 7 plus years I had it, but I found it a good home.

Finally. Easy part done. Deal with routing the ducts another day.

While I have the bumper off, I may add a pair of air intake duct. 50/50.

Good reasons. I also would never let them valet my Z. Congrats on your retirement!

Kinda like it, kinda don’t, easier on the eye when it’s just the brake ducts. Good thing I have a spare front bumper.

Undo the mess from the previous owner.
1. Fixed the radio (it was all static)
2. Fixed the back up cam (it was cut and thrown away, and harness from head unit was missing)
3. Put the correct brakes on. The rotors on there were the wrong ones and were wayyyyy too small, the pads were barely sitting on there!

Finished the Flex Fuel retune with Seb. The car is running great!

Next up: New Z1 Forged calipers and pads to replace my very worn akebonos. Just waiting on some other stuff to come in.

Canít figure out (again) how to post a photoÖbut in April I gave up my beloved Z, Harry.
Columbia BMW in Columbia Missouri sold it less than two weeks after I traded him on a 2017 Grand Sport Z51 Corvette.
If you picked up Harry I hope youíre treating him as well as I did. I miss you Harry
