I agree it doesn't make sense.

That would be like 330s being installed with 328 brakes on some days and 330 brakes on other days. HMM I THINK I'LL JUST INSTALL 328 BRAKES 2DAY HANZ, WHAT DO U THINK? YA BRO GO 4 it.

You won the argument that ZHPs don't have a special rack.
But- I just thought we left the consensus on which rack was used when open. Because a couple people reported other racks- as did the Rack Doctor from 09/01+ 330s.
Rack doctor posted the photo showing that the 712 replaced 10 or so different part numbers that may come in as core racks too.
And sure it doesn't make sense. But some things don't make sense.
Such as why did BMW make up half of the ZHP parts list?
Why did BMW fail to fix the subframe issue of the E36 with the E46?
Why did they put brakes in the F30 328i that stop it in a similar distance of a 90's school bus?
Hanz gets a little drunk sometimes... he's been going to meetings so go easy.
