is this a good price on a ZHP with nav?

no heated seats or third pedal but i could live with it for a zhp and the nav.

possibly going to go look at it tomorrow.

My Ride: 2003 330i ZHP
Why get a ZHP in auto? (legitimate question, not trying to start a fight) To me it just seems a waste of the extra money... the whole point of the ZHP is that it's a more driver oriented 330i, buying it in auto just seems wrong to me...

don't buy a slushbox because of one package. that's one step forward, then two steps back.

*btw there was never a "Competition Package" 325xi like your sig states you had two of.

sorry i didnt mean to sound rude, i was only asking a simple question of value of it... i know its an auto and people dont like autos but its an additional car for me to replace the saab and one of my Xi's personally ive already driven a auto zhp last year and was happy with it, its mainly for my long trips in the city and driving a manual gets annoying.

if he goes 14500 i would pull the trigger. not that many miles, it looks super clean.

if you do buy, i'll take the zhp wheels off of you if they are square. pm me if you buy!

tint the windows to 30% and most won't know you don't have 3 pedals. hehe

Exactly. You don't need to justify your transmission choice to anybody on here. It's getting really old when the point of a thread is completely missed because people see 'automatic' and immediately pounce.

With that said, the price looks acceptable to me, and the seller may also accept offers (OBO). Other than the Cold Weather Package/Heated Seats, the car looks well optioned. I would ask about maintenance history as well, and a thorough test drive of course.

Good luck

he brought up no third pedal and being automatic first. stating but he could live with it because he'd be getting the Perf Package. why "live with it" when making such a big purchase? we followed up with that is a big compromise if you're paying upwards of $5-$7 thousand more buying a used car for performance, and the automatic basically drops it down. a 330-zhp automatic is not any quicker than a 330 manual. And there is absolutely a disconnect with the E46 driver from car when it's automatic.
Add that this isn't any special color to the Perf Package, nor are the seats. It's actually one of the most disliked color interiors of all, the extended light grey. The car doesn't have ZCWP like he'd prefer either. So $15,300 for a 70K mile Automatic car that doesn't have heated seats.
Sure he could talk down price, he could even replace with heated seats and have it all. But his initial post was one that implied he didn't want the automatic. There are far too many Fanatics that this is a deal breaker, especially on an overly priced 330i-Perf Package.

On top of it all it's Not a good price either.

well that confirms if $15,300 was actually a good price or NOT

if you really want a 330-zhp search here at this site, you're likely to find what you really want given time and searching. GL
