I think it's more like:

At first he was snickering about the thought of a ZHP...then he ended up giggling like an evil school girl on youtube.

It's funny, I've had an E46 for 5 years, but now that I have this one, I find myself doing the "look back" when I get out of it. I love it. Everything about it is perfection.

It always feels weird when I drive the Xi now, the ZHP is truly addictive. The folks decided to go in together and get me some items I've been waiting for on the ZHP for X-mas.

On the board:
Cooling system w/ Stewart WP
New FCABs
Front Brakes
And the soon to be repaired autodim mirror from the Xi

Gonna have to just camp out at my friend's place as I don't have a garage and it's a tad bite nippley out.

That's the great thing about BMWs (especially models designed to be sportier like the ZHP and all the Ms) - they always feel better the more you drive them. ZHP is still one of the best all-around car I've driven. If it had something more along the lines of 270-280hp and an LSD, it would've been perfect IMO

Why didn't BMW do that with the car?

Maybe I'll get there with a Supercharger. Can you imagine if the ZHP had 300 horse?

I don't want to get too crazy with this car like I did the other one and ruin it. My planned mods are small. Here is the list:

Fix burnt ZKW reflector bowls so I can see at night
New fog lights (one is broken)
New Shift knob (BMW Performance)
AA Software to try and clear up massive 4k dip
Adjustable rear camber arms
solid RTAB bushings

The end........for now........

You'll have the AA software soon Don't worry. And did you say supercharger?. The best I could do is wholesale price fyi.
