UPDATE: Competition Package (ZCP) confirmed for December Production

As the title suggests, BMW has changed the name of the package from ZCS (Club Sport), to ZCP (Competion Package). Here is the offical BMW confirmation:

New for MY2005, we are pleased to introduce the M3 Coupe Competition Package. The Competition Package
takes the already benchmark-setting performance and handling of the M3 to an even higher standard. It has been
developed, tested and manufactured by the engineers at M GmbH. The package reflects M’s years of experience
and dedication to racing and performance.
The competition package features:
• Compound and cross-drilled brake rotors.
• Larger front brakes – the front brake diameter increases from 12.8’’ to 13.6’’ (the rear diameter remains
12.9’’).
• 19’’ cross-spoke forged wheels with high performance tires.
• Steering ratio is more direct – 14.5:1 vs. 15.4:1.
• Modified suspension calibration (shocks and springs) fine-tuned for larger wheels and cross-drilled
compound brakes.
• M track mode – a new DSC setting allows for sportier driving and less intrusive DSC intervention. The
regular DSC setting is still the default, unless track mode is selected.
• Alcantara sport steering wheel (no multi-function steering wheel or cruise control buttons) and handbrake
grip.
• Special aluminum trim and new exterior Interlagos Blue (A30) metallic paint.
• The Competition Package is also available with manual and SMG transmission (793), and all M3 Coupe exterior paints and upholsteries. The standard Competition Package Aluminum trim cannot be modified.

What do they exactly mean by "compound brakes"?

BMW just sent this bulletin out, and it says December production. As of now, we're still on November allocations. December allocations are coming later this week, and this package should be normally available on those cars. I know I'll be building one for stock, at least out of curiosity to see one in the flesh.

There was discussion about that on .org... they seem to think it'd be < $1k for parts.

That trim looks like snake skin

I wonder if it will void your warranty if you race a car with the "competition pkg"

I believe "compound" refers to them being multi-piece (seperate hat and rotor)

I'm going to order one with my first available M3 allocation, just to see what it looks like. What color combo should I do? Do you guys think that the "exclusive" Interlagos Blue will become too common (in that everyone will order at least one like that)?

Yes, but that shouldn't stop you.

I only buy cloth and as far as I know it only comes in black


EVERYONE seems to love Mystic/Cinnamon. But then basic black leather is probably easier to sell

Just make sure it's "well taken care of" as a demo car, so no one will buy it, mmkay?
