Thanks for the info, good to know. I replaced my cooling system just about 4 years ago and it was a Behr ET, though mine was labeled as a Genuine BMW product. 4 years and 120k miles later, it's...

Honestly ripping the dash isn't that bad. My buddy and I swapped the entire interior of his E46 M3 from grey to all black in less than a full day. I guess 40 degree temps helped speed up the...

Sell the 7, keep the 5.
The 7 is more of a maintenance nightmare.

This. It's pointless buying a particular car for resale value unless it's going to be a collectible. I seriously doubt a ZHP, or any E46 short of the CSL, is going to be a collectible.

I would say it's worth between 5 and 6k, depending on how much maintenance it has had. If it hasn't had preventative maintenance done, I wouldn't pay more than 4,500 for it. If it's very well...

Out of curiosity, do you have any pics of the damage they did on the inside?

ZHP's with that mileage, assuming excellent condition, I would say about 10-10,500. If the person has extensive maintenance records, more like $11-11,500. It totally depends on a number of things. ...

I agree, the only way I could look at an E60 and not barf is if it is equipped with the M-Sport package or if it's an M5. It can look pretty good like this. Otherwise, bland is the first word that...

I'd be careful with those Meyle HD's... I had a pair fail on me within a year, along with the control arms as well.
I hope you get good life out of them.

Yes, you're right, "only" 10hp more. It's naturally aspirated 10hp, however, which you'd spend a bit of money to get otherwise on a non-ZHP. Regardless, the power isn't the only reason to buy the...

Is the budget for maintenance a concern? If not, I'd probably go with an E46 M3. Or, if you don't want to spend quite as much on maintenance or gas, then a 330i should suit you well for a nice...
