So happy! I have a new head unit in the hatch Alpine CDE-HD138BT, and it's night and day with the stock speakers. I'm gonna save my money I would have spent on speakers and use it towards an intake now.
It's got HD radio which is so clear and the extra stations are sweet. The bluetooth setup is great. I can use Pandora right through the HU instead of picking up the phone to change songs or give it a thumbs up, etc. Decent enough for playing with EQ settings. Hands free calling with the mic. Etc...
Happy happy happy!

|DerbyCityGinger||Mine is automatic. I am trying to find a MTX75 and I will convert it to manual. After I fix the front end that is.|

|consciousthirteen||It's a 5 speed. Took me a while to find one. I was not going to buy an automatic. I almost gave up on finding a ZX5. I narrowed down my next car purchase between a 2001-2005 Civic or a ZX5. I couldn't find a manual sedan for Civic so I almost bought a coupe. Then this showed up for sale. So happy.|

Your car looks exactly like mine, only mine is a 2005 ZX5. Mine has some minor body damage and a hole in the A/C accumulator from being ran off the road. The accumulator was so damaged I had to saw off some of the fender shield because it was knocked back into it, rubbing it against the tire...
Is your ZX5 manual or automatic?

|matmatician||Yeah, that sounds way better that the way I did it lol. Mine was kind of a "Well, I've got 30 minutes to kill before the person I need to meet shows up... Hey look, an antenna!" lol. I'm kinda ADD.|

Antenna is easy. I chopped mine by a foot with little effect on reception. I lost one radio station that had sketchy reception, but gained it back with a new head unit.
All I did was take a multi-tool, chop the mast with the wirecutter, pull the old tip off with the pliers, put some super glue in the old cap, then slid it back onto the shortened mast. Is is the best method? Probably not. Did it work, and was it free? yes.
Welcome fo FF and good luck with your car! Have fun with it!
