My Ride: 2005 Zhp 330
Help on a few things,zhp

This is my first time posting on this forums. I've visited a few times and finally decided to make an account. I have a 2005 silver coupe zhp 330. It has a custom fitted m3 rear bumper when I bought it I was told it was cut to fit the car. It came with horribly ugly exhausts, which one is fake imo. I was wondering if I can fit the 330ci rear diffuser on it or would I have to do some other work? My car is at the body shop right now from a hit and run and is being fixed, since its there I thought I might as well fix this problem as well. My last question is what would look better a front spoiler or front splitters and which ones should I go with?
Thanks for the help in advance guys.

If your car has an OEM M3 rear bumper fitted to it then the answer is no. The M3 rear diffuser is completly different from a 330ci rear diffuser. It will not work. If anything, I would replace the M3 bumper with an MTec II rear bumper.... I think with your ZHP it will look better but that's just my input...


Regarding your last question...you can go either way. Some like splitters on their MTec II front bumper and then there are others like me who prefer the Arqray lip spoiler. Pictured below is my ZHP with the Arqray lip spoiler...

I would have to agree with Cak, he is wise in the ways on the zhp and M3.

Just take his advise and you can't go wrong.

Agree. Replace M3 rear with ZHP rear. Go with the Arquay lip if you want to spend the dough but you can get splitters for cheap and they look good on the Mtech II front end. Just my two cents, I had neither on the front of my ZHP so there you go.

I was thinking of replacing the bumper and getting a carbon fiber rear diffuser and replacing the little spoiler with a carbon fiber one. I'm thinking of also painting the zhp rims black. Thanks for all the help guys and the car looks cleannn!
