I'm conflicted, I think I want to see how my current wheels look on the orange car before I decide whether the EAP wheels will stay on the orangie or I will go with my current wheels. I sold my stock 5-spoke alloys, so I need to sell the ZX3 with some kind of wheel & tire. Maybe I'd do some kind of trade for steelies/stockies plus cash? (Mods - please don't erase this. It is not an offer to sell or trade parts, just a conversation. I know there are forums for selling stuff.)

could be the motor mounts...

how many miles on that thing?

The SVT EAP is sick. it's my favorite car I've owned to date. you will love it. light weight, decent power, rides on rails and looks damn good.

100K... I replaced the rear "dogbone" mount with a VP Engineering one when I first got the ZX3, might be one of the others going out? I'm jst gonna sell it cheap as a commuter car since it doesn't have A/C or power anything, so for normal driving should be OK for someone.

look at the wheels! I love those wheels! I wish I had those, but the guy I bought mine from swapped them out for a set of kazeras. the EAP wheels are sweet...

It'll look even better once I find someone who can colormatch that orange and spray my Roush body kit and spoiler!
