As normally crazy mentioned,,,its not really necsary to have PS on a zen as its a pretty nimble model but PS can be an advantge during excessive city usage...and it also gives a little resale value!!!

Cool hmmm....

first of all...
never add something that....
u can get with the car itself...
its better to just buy one of the vxi..
ive got a zen vxi with power windows and power steering....
it is a luxury at times.....
like if i drive vances cars at times i do feel a lil strain..but
gues u can handle it......

if u r used to non ps cars then its no use just installing it....
hmm.. dont u think 35k-40k on a ps is it worth it ??
how long u gonna keep the car for......
after u install this.....???
aniways take care....

well a bit off topic, but if some1 manages to make an ezen or a bzen, then the car will have more power of course. then will the ps be missed?

ps is more necessary for weight, than for power. i should think a b-zen wouldn't be much heavier than a stock one, or actually lighter (because you're stripping it for speed)

I'll tell you what you gonna feel if you w/o PS. Few months down the line you gonna drive a friend's PS Zen and gonna feel miserable, and terribly miss the thing in your own car. But then in a sudden flash of memory, you gonna realize you saved a good 35000 bucks for going w/o PS. So you'll feel better then.

In addition, correct me if I am wrong but Zen has two base models, LX and LXi, LX is w/o PS and PW, but LXi has PS as well as front PW. Now PW is a godsend for smokers like me. Personally I'd never mind spending 35k and getting PS and PW in my zen. PS is good. PW is godsend.
