Mein Auto: 2005 330ci ZHP
Talking New Owner of a ZHP

Hey guys,
I purchased my 2005 330ci ZHP on 02-25-2010 and the car is a blast to drive.

Exterior: Silver Graphite Metallic
Interior: Gray Leather with Black Cube Trim
Transmission: Auto
Packages: Premium Package; Performance (ZHP) Package, BMW Assist, Xenon headlights, Bluetooth, MP3 Playback.
Note: Alcantra Steering Wheel along with shift boot and e-brake.
Warranty: CPO until 02-2011.
Miles: 58503

Everything is stock on the vehicle.
I just had 3 of my wheels refinished to get rid of curb rash and the car looks brand new.

Nice dude! Definitely one of my favorite colors on the E46. The wheels look flawless too.

Great find.

If you are like the rest of us, you will love it for years and years.

If I may suggest the first 'mod', join the BMW CCA and do a Car Control Clinic. It is a great way to learn your new car and make some good connections.

You should've gotten the manual lol. Either way awesome car, I love my ZHP. Most people say BMWs are expensive to maintain, but my car's been really reliable for the past 36k miles.

Yup, simply gorgeous!

Looks familiar, too. Mine was the same, except an '06. Then I did black out grills, de-badged the "330Ci" off the trunk lid and replaced the type 68 wheels with black spokes with machined lips. I think it makes it look "badder" -- but yours looks damn fine just the way it is!

Nice stuff

I have exactly the same color but it came with no roof (I love all that fresh air). I've owned it for 18 months now as CPO & I love it. No problems with it but I should get my rims cleaned up also. Previous owner really did a job on them.
Previously owned a 318Ci & a 323Ci,,, No comparison.

Enjoy your beauty.:
