Don't have one myself, though I do plan to get one. Every comment that I have read about them has been positive. Some have said it is the best mod thay have done. TWM and B&M seem to be the most favored makes.

My dad has one. So far it has the Hotshot intake and the sway bar off a 93 Mazda Protege with NAPA end links.

2000 ZX2 is bone stock. As I stated in another post, it has 160K miles as of last month. Original shifter is finished (kaput) and am considering a B & M.

Mine is bone stock except for the aftermarket dents from the previous owner. I just put a tow hitch on it so I can tow my dirt bikes. Mechancially I just put in a new air filter and some fresh air in the tires. Car runs like a top and pulls down low to mid 30's for MPG's as well as being able to pull a dirt bike trailer with 2 bikes in it up any hill on Oahu...

2002 ZX2

I have a black 2002 ZX2, almost 86,000 miles (mostly highway). No mods. I love it to death and it has been the most reliable car I've ever owned. I've had to do nothing to it since I got it, save tires and the current battery problem which is more than routine, of course. It took my wife and I to Canada and back two weeks ago, 1700 miles round trip in four days without a single problem.

Not "still" around.... "finally" would be more appropriate. I'm a new ZX2 owner, and though I never figured I'd ever own anything FWD, I needed something NOT 8-cylindered, and this little cupcake more than satisfies!

After looking for a couple 'o weeks, I scored a '98 "Hot" w/ all options except the CD changer and the child seat. Best 2 grand I believe I've ever spent. Guess I'll be looking for an audio upgrade.

'99 zx2

I am new but I have a stock '99 zx2 that I bought new and I have 89,000 and climbing. I now drive 42 miles one way to work over 2 mountain passes. I love the way it still corners after all of these years.
