That's exactly how I bought mine. Stopped at the dealership to kill an hour in the afternoon 5 years ago, and leased the car that same day, even though I wasn't in the market for a car. I still...

I'm glad I have a sedan. It's nice to have an easily accesible back seat. It's both easier to clean, and easier to get dirty. It's also very rigid, especially given that it wasn't made yesterday. ...

I have to admit, the only place on my entire car that is showing any sign of wear is the back of the driver's seat, as a result of the effect that repeatedly having your shirt soaked though with...

If I was going on a once-in-a-lifetime roadtrip like that, I wouldn't do it in a German car. Seriously. Old two lane road trips in the US are best undertaken on the ultimate US riding machine. ...

The only ZHP I"ve ever seen driven by a woman was a black convertible which looked just like yours.

I'm still in love. :)

If I was upgrading my suspension, I would use the Meyle Control Arms. But keeping my car stock would require the extra expenditure for the "true" OEM Control Arms. It's kind of like having a small...

From what I understand, the orange interior illumination scheme is supposed to be more relaxing and less distracting that other colors, which is why BMW uses it. Taking generic as opposed to Name...

If anybody inherited my car after I died, and put those wheels on it, I'd come back to haunt them. On the other hand, there's the potential downstream advantage of saving money on future child...

I love my ZHP with Steptronic, and chose it brand new over a Titanium Silver Coupe with 6MT because it looked better and was more fun to drive. Since the one you're contemplating is a 2006, it must...

Which just goes to show that ZHP's look fantastic no matter what the color, even if you spill a large double latte on the shift boot! :)

There are a lot of candidates for 2nd best color, but it's hard to believe that the 1st best color is even being debated. :)

Just try to walk away from a Z4M Coupe without breaking your neck looking over your shoulder. One of the most stunning BMW's ever, regardless of the number of doors.

ZHP's are great, but all MT 330s got 6 speeds in mid model year 2003. And they are a blast to drive. Never seen one in Topaz, though, nor many other BMW's in that color.

There's definitely something wrong with the front bumper, and perhaps with whatever sensor is located there as well. Unfortunately, if it's a 2001, it's not a ZHP, which would be too much to expect...

You beat me to the punch. No way would I get vanity plates with just "BM" on them. I was thinking about "BMVMNT" but it would undoubtedly be taken the wrong way.
