I'm also very excited about the M235; it looks fantastic compared to the odd proportions of the 1 Series. My local dealer didn't have any, so I wonder when they're going to be available ..

It's so fashionable to bash ZHPs now! :clap:
Everyone's right. There's absolutely no reason why a car with a $4k package out of the factory should command one penny more than a ZSP-equipped 330i.

Not sure why you should, or deserve to have a newer car because you're an attorney. :hmm: All my attorney friends have more lame/boring cars than my lowly 330.

$7500 for a ZHP coupe sounds too good to be true-- and I'm pretty sure that sparkling graphite is exclusive to late model E46 coupes, so that's pretty cool.

I'd buy it, providing there's no...

It may sound ridiculous, but I've pulled away in first gear with my hand brake on a few times ... and the car beeps to let me know it's not happy about it.

Not sure that's the case..
I don't get jealous ever time I see a 16-year-old kid driving a 2014 Nissan Versa ... which costs more than my 10-year-old car.

Yes.
Everyone knows that the only vehicle that doesn't depreciate is the 2004 M3.

No one would ever cross-shop an STi, an E46 M3, and an RSX.

OP obviously can't afford to maintain the first two.

OP: What car do you have?
You're asking for suggestions on an '04 330ci but your profile says you have a ZHP sedan -- both of which are facelifted cars, btw.

I've seen worse... much worse.
It can be saved, and that color combo's pretty sweet.

Having a facelifted coupe, I'd stick with the stock ZHP bumper and add some splitters or a lip.
I think the M3 bumper is better suited to pre-facelifted cars.

Yeah, the M3's still an E46 ... so the "database" is rather comparable.

Also, tires and brakes are about the same size on a 330ci as they are on an M3. I'd go with the M3 on snow tires as a dd.

If I found $3,500 in a suitcase by the railroad tracks, my first thought wouldn't be to drop it in my 10-year-old E46, but to each his own.

Umm... 850 was a 12-cylinder... and the 850csi was the de facto M8, and had M badging on the valve cover.

That goofy bumper's straight from the factory; I doubt they're still available. In fact, I've never seen one in person.
