I"m trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on one of these with 55K miles, and I wonder if anyone was familiar with the M Performance line. It's an '04, and it looks to be in good shape. My mechanic is scheduled to look at it more closely. I saw in the wiki that there was a "Performance" line that was a step up from the "Sport" line and down from the full M3. I think the "M Performance" is really just the "Performance" line, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?
The zhp is an amazing car I love mine and know many other people who do as well.
Let us know what your indy says.

I took the car up to 3D Auto Works today, and the report back is pretty good. The tires should be replaced, and it's a quart low on oil (but not burning any), there is a crack in one fog light, and the oil sensor should be replaced. The tires are probably $1000-1200, and he estimated the oil sensor at $350-375 installed. I'm not sure what the fog light would cost to repair, but am I right in assuming that I can probably track down the plastic lens and not have to replace the entire light?

You'll enjoy the car, they are a lot of fun.
Don't forget you will need to use the special BMW ZHP oil, refined from the tears of virgins.
You'll also need the special ZHP tires, made from rubber trees grown in a special section of the jungles of Equador.
Regular Mtech II bumper foglights will fit, but if you are going to just use one of those, replace both since they will not have as focused of a beam as the special ZHP foglights, with glass made from quartz mined from the deepest craters of the moon.
This has obviously just been a silly rant meant to make fun of some of the comments ZHP owners like to throw out there. As a former ZHP owner I feel the need to warn you :bigpimp:
You forgot the "Special 78% Nitrogen Blend ZHP Air" for the tires, Pete....
