Your car was def. an enthusiast owned 3/S.

I was looking at pictures of your car, you really did snag a nice one. Most are not near as clean, your car must have been garage kept most of it's life.

I had a pearl white one as well, it decent shape- but- spun a bearing shortly after I bought it and later found it it needed a TOB and 60k when I bought it.

I won't be buying another unless I'm sure of condition, and, will be yanking the oil pan and checking out bearings before purchase. Not gettin' burned again lol.

Seriously though, a working 3000GT VR4 is one of the best cars you can drive... but a broken one is one of the worst.

how many negative threads are you going to make about gzp? seriously do you have anything better to do with your life? i have been going to gzp for years now and not ONCE was it a negative experience. any problem i ever had was dealt with quickly and correctly. why??? because i went back respectully and talked to them like normal human beings, not go online and cry like little girls when my 15 year old twin turbo engine blows up...many people on here had good experiences but its much more rare to see a positive review than a negative one. i've been at hans' shop when someone would drive back with a car they bought with an issue, he has dropped whatever he was doing, and even taken parts off of HIS OWN CAR to make sure what he sold was working to the buyers liking. as stated in here, the cars are NOTORIOUS for breaking. its a 15 year old sports car that has gone through 6 different teenagers beating the **** out of it...what do you expect....

from now on, make ONE thread saying "don't go to, buy from, get your car worked on by, eat diner with, look at, smell, or vote for the same president as Hans @ GZP". that'll save everyone a lot of time.

will he take the motor and trans out of HIS CAR and put it in Qs, since obviously neither have been rebuilt like hans said he did? Q is one of the most patient people i know. he went back countless times before posting anything on here. hans failed to make things right.. This thread, and future threads are to warn people of his shoty work, cars, and promises.

I have given Hans tons of time to make things right, all i get if bull **** excuses like, "sorry man i just got bacc from vacation" or i was just about to send you a message, but im cleaning the garage so ill get bacc to you." And like ive said in other threads, hans knows his way around the 3s engine bay. the way he conducts business is all the way arse.

He is yet to hit me bacc about my syncros, and i know he has seen this thread, if he hasnt his girl did.

And as for you, luccy you. you were one that had a good experience. hat off to you. but you dont know what ive been thru with this dude, so you cant talk. ya dig? And i did not expect to get a 17 year old cat that runs like a 2009. I expected what he told me to be true. How do you tell me the trans was rebuilt and its grinding gears. bet you would be pissed of if that happened to you. correct me if im wrong. And since youve had so many good experiences with him. tell him to send me my syncros its only the right thing to do.

^^^ people arent picking on hans just for s@$% and giggles yeah a lot of people have gotten good work from him thats why he's still in business but some people have horror stories like tru2blu, im sorry man that really sucks thats he's dicking you around, its just people deserve to hear these stories so maybe they will second guess going there and maybe it'll save them some time and money this tread wasnt started to just completely bash hans its just a review on gzp and the work they do and alot of people think its a piss poor effort he's putting in and i agree

I still don't have a second gear syncro. When I come across one, I will let you know. I can't just whittle this bitch out of wood or purchase one for that matter. I had rebuilt that trans for another customer who had since blown his engine up. I bought the trans back from him and he told me it was still shifting properly. Why would I think differently? He never complained to me about a transmission problem, and he would have, if he had one, since he paid me to rebuild it.

Yes, I put in a 4 bolt used engine when I said I would put in a rebuilt 2 bolt. I told you that when you were buying the car.

Everyone plugs that vacuum line with a screw. It's not like it's going to leak and it's hard to get your hands way down in the engine bay to place a vacuum cap on the t-fitting. Also, I don't like using vacuum caps on that t-fitting because I have found them to blow off. Then you have no wastegate controll and a blown engine.

Brakes and rotors all around.
Axel
Rear turbo return line.
Oil pan is leaking ( could be the rear main seal)
And the car has poor wiring, so its being redone.

This is besides the other stuff you know about.
60K needs to be done. we replaced the timing belt for you when we did the crank angle sensor.... remember?
Car has 3 original plug wires (like never replaced) so plugs and wires need to be replaced I don't recall what it had on it, but it wasn't stated that the car had new plugs and wires when you bought it. You should have said something to me when you picked up the car, but you had no complaints on how it was running when you bought it.
Brakes and rotors all around. never said it had new brakes on it
Axel could need a new axle, I don't remember
Rear turbo return line. oil return lines leak all the time on a vr4
Oil pan is leaking ( could be the rear main seal) wasn't leaking when I sold it. I'm not a fortune teller.
And the car has poor wiring, so its being redone. it has wiring from 1992 and it's a mitsubishi

You bought the car from me over a year ago and you're still complaining!!!!!

Mazdaspeed 6 engine rebuild

I'm having an engine rebuilt there now and payed half the bill already. That was over a year ago and have been told story's about how it's getting done weekly. Update January 2017 and my engine is still on the engine stand. Update February 2017 and my engine block is still there. Went there today and he told me it's not that important. I have given this business 3,XXX dollars upfront and payed for most of the new parts on my own. They are treating my car like a joke and are holding me hostage. The estimated time was 4-6 weeks and that was in December of 2015. Trust me I have spoken with him many times in person over the last year or so and he has done nothing.
