Everyone please clue me in on the following Abreviations and any others that are out there.

ZHP
CA

What do they mean and please include any others you might think of to help other new BMW visiters to reconize what they mean.

Thank you!

ZHP - 330 option code to add few performance improvements to the regular 330. but some thinks that it's a different car w/ 80 more HPs

2 years ago that statement would have started a big "flame" war.

The performance package (ZHP) was only available on E46 330i.

My BMWCCA chapter classifies for Autocross purposes a 330i with ZHP in the same group as a E46 M3.

What does the 525i, 325i stand for?

Some people identify their Bmws as for example 325i with a letter A and T in them as well.

What type of vehicles are they?? are they special models? or limited edition models?

Thanks,

THe 'i' stands for injection. It is short for fuel injection I think.

AT stands for automatic transmission. MT in my sig stands for manual transmission.

325it= 325i Touring (aka station wagon)

TiAg(Chemistry Periodic Table) refers to the color of the car, Titanium Silver. It has been a long time since I took chemistry.

How about the meaning or the logical order of the models?
I have no idea what an E63 is or an E90 or anything like that (E60, E647586, E4567???). I just know the cars by 330i or 760iL or 650i, etc. Can someone elaborate? Logical sequence? I have been wondering since I joined Bimmerfest!
Thanks

Thanks Agent!
What amazes me is that people actually memorize these numbers

Now I feel more part of Bimmerfest, though I think I will just stick to mentioning year and model...

Thanks again Agent!
