I realize this might be a thread jacking, but would I see any noticeable performance gains in a 2004 325 Ci sport by using the ZHP sport air? I was looking to bump the bhp up about 10-15 and I heard this is the easiest way to do so. I use warmer air in my tires by putting my air compressor next to a heating duct in the house with the heat of full blast. It surprisingly showed significant handling improvements .

Well, hopefully I wont get the backlash like some people do by throwing on M emblems on a non-M car. Just hoping the ZHP air could aid in performance

Go and get some before it's too late.

I'm screwed. I did use a bottle of Fox washer fluid that I bought at Walmart. Crap...

I assume there must be a special tool to bleed the washer fluid system on the ZHP? There's probably a special bleeder valve that's unique to the ZHP?
I heard that the washer fluid reservoir and hoses should be bled once a month for better performance anyhow. I should really be doing that. Heck, I'm under the hood regapping my ZHP spark plugs once a week anyhow. I could just as easily bleed the washer fluid at the same time.

you've officially turned into a ZHP lune.

Stop sniffing so of that Z interior, will ya.

Too much ZHP'ing will lead a loss of Z and stop the H flow which will mean you won't P no mo.

You know after buying all this special ZHP stuff. Waiting for back ordered items and fretting about using the generic BMW products without voiding my special ZHP warranty. I did a search right here on this site (it is hard to find but there is a way to search for previous threads) and found that the ZHP may not be as special as we think. In fact it might just be 330i . If this is true I think we should think about a class action lawsuit . Need to do more digging but man am I pissed. Now how does that search function work

In Canada we get free ZHP air for the life of the warranty.
You can buy an extended-ZHP-air warranty but it's not worth it.

How do you get them here in America

The fluid resevoir can be flushed, but the special ZHP washer fluid hoses have to be replaced every 6 months or 500 squirts, whichever comes first. Since you've tainted the system you'd better replace those hoses ASAP.

This subject was touched on a year ago in E46Fanatics, read through the thread to see UUC's opinions on performance air...

It's OK as long as you only wear your ZHP shoes in the car. You did get those I hope

Yep, I usually don't wear my ZHP driving gloves for the same reason. That fuzzy steering wheel just feels sooo good.

I did notice that the hoses were looking a little worn, in that there was some dust on them. I think the dust slows the car down quite a bit. Not only does it increase wind resistance, but it also adds to the weight of the car. This is not good.

That was the first thing my sales guy warned me about. If your's didn't, I'd report him to BMW headquarters for prosecution.

It's a new package for the 330i developed entirely by the marketing team at BMWAG. It's the first package that required no input or new parts/materials from the engineering team.

The rumor I heard is that mid year the ZHP model will be changed to ZMP. This should enhance the overall appeal of this new model as most people will mistake the M for motorsport not marketing .
