My Ride: 2005 330ci ZHP
New Owner

Hi all,

I've been using this forum along with the advice of my mechanic to buy a new (used) car. Today I picked up my first BMW (my wife used to have an X3 but it wasn't really mine). I chose a 2005 330ci ZHP coupe (6-speed). Thanks for all the great info here! Any advice on what I should do to the car? My mechanic said the ZHP doesn't really need anything but any advice would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Welcome!

Looks awesome. Any more pics?

Also, just for additional peace of mind, find out when last has the cooling system been replaced? That would be a great place to start.

Thanks Ice, I'll have more pictures soon, just picked it up this morning and went right to work. My mechanic said the first thing to do is a cooling system overhaul so that'll be the first thing done.
