    I’d think that given the comparatively low numbers of black/red compared the ever present silver/black on BaT, this car would fetch $165-$185. Now condition is another issue.

    All coolant hoses, and I mean all, should be replaced at least every 10 years along with the expansion tank and drive belts. I’ve done this twice on my 2003 Z8 with less than 10k miles.
