330i ZHP photo thread!

Could you guys please post up a few photos of your beloved ZHPs? I am in the process of buying one, and I have not seen all of our colors represented!

You would be doing a huge favor to me and your ZHP community!
Thanks a lot!

I am trying to decide between silver gray, imola red, titanium silver, and jet black...I wanted black saphire metallic, but it seems that there are none left

Try going to a dealer, looking at cars in person is much more accurate than looking at photos of cars

I agree seeing them at a dealer in person is the best way to go. One good reason for this is that my color changes according to ambient light. On a cloudy day, it appears more grey, but on a sunny day, it's more silver. To each his own.

Did you change out your clear corners again after your original change? Looks like you have the black trim now...(Your old pics wouldn't load when I looked)

I should have known, the Bimmerfest CSI team is on top of everything!

Yes sir, I had knock-offs that were pretty good. The website said black trim, but when I got them through their ebay store, they were more silver than black. http://www.pro*************/store-det...=onlinestoreDB I just got OEM front and side clears.

Are you at brake-in mileage yet?

I have silver, but I really like the Imola red, particularly with the sand beiged interior.

nah, there were over 70 threads with 'ZHP' and 'pic*' in the subject.

It looks like the link for search results must only stay active for a limited amount of time

Once or twice per week I just go over it with a California duster and then do a Sonus QD wipe (total time about 20 minutes). I really only wash it if it rains or otherwise gets dirty....maybe once every 4 to 6 weeks.

Nice crack, Shizat. Looks like one of my fogs did last month. Got it fixed and promptly picked up a crack on the windshield yesterday.

Is there any time of year (north of the Mason-Dixon) that you can avoid this crap on the roads?

Well, I'm slacking off! I've still got 100 miles to go . But, good news -- my wife was planning to drive out to Rehoboth Beach Friday to help her friend w/ a new condo there and I've decided to GO ALONG! so we'll take the BMW to finish up those last miles. Should be a nice weekend weather-wise, and I can try those quick starts from the toll gates
