My Ride: 04' 330ci ZHP
04' 330ci ZHP Black Sapphire/Black 6MT ARC-8s, 3.46 Diff, Vibrant Exhaust and More!

2004 330ci ZHP
216,xxx miles
Sapphire Black/Black
6MT
Slicktop (no sunroof)
Located in Orlando, FL

$4000 OBO with stock wheels!

Modifications:
3.46 Differential
AKG Polyurethane Diff Bushings
Vibrant Performance Exhaust (both resonators removed with a Vibrant Performance muffler, sounds really good and not too loud, exhaust clip here: my car is the one on the left/the louder one)
UUC Underdrive Pulleys
Koni FSD's w/ Eibach Springs
Coby Black Alcantara Steering Wheel (M Tri-Stitch with red 12'00 stripe)
Black Alcantara E-Brake Boot w/ M Stitching
Black Alcantara E-Brake Handle
Black Alcantara Door Pads
Black Alcantara Shift Boot w/ red stitching
Black Side Markers
CDV Delete w/ Steel Braided Clutch Line
15% Ceramic Tint all around
Apex 75mm Studs

Maintenance:
I have a maintenance folder full of receipts for this car since I purchased it in March of 2015, always serviced at a reputable indy, highlights include:

Alignment - 6/27/16
New Rear Control Arms - 6/24/16
3.46 Diff Installed (had 99k miles when I got the diff), diff seals replaced, AKG polyeurathane bushings installed, diff fluid flushed - 6/8/16 ~2k miles ago
New OEM front rotors, pads and brake fluid flush - 6/8/16 ~2k miles ago
New Starter - 5/27/16
Beisan VANOS Seals, Beisan Anti Rattle Kit and Valve Cover Gasket - 1/20/16
Expansion Tank and Coolant Level Sensor - 1/20/16
New Bosch Battery - 1/20/16
NGK Double Platinum Spark Plugs, Cabin Air FIlter and new DISA Valve - 1/2/16
Front Control Arm Bushings - 12/18/15
Water Pump, Thermostat, Mass Air Boot - 9/11/15
New rear brakes, pads, parking brake shoes and front control arm - 4/11/15
Other small things I am forgetting

Pros: Engine is strong and pulls hard. Don't let the mileage scare you, I have sunk thousands of dollars into this car mechanically to address all the E46 weaknesses, such as the VANOS and cooling system. The 3.46 diff was just recently installed and refreshed with new seals, fluid, etc. and really makes the car feel a couple hundred pounds lighter in regards to the stock diff. The exhaust sounds amazing without being overly loud and all the alcantara bits really make the interior that much nicer.

Cons: The body isn't in the greatest of shape, the paint still cleans up nice but there are lots of dings, dents and scratches. Most notably, there is some hail damage on the roof and hood. The car was previously from New Jersey so there is rust starting to form in a few places, the worst is the passenger side rear quarter panel where the rear bumper meets and above the driver side skirt (common E46 rust points). The front bumper will need replaced as the paint is faded and it is sagging, the rear bumper will also need resprayed as it has some flaking and scratches. Apart from the body, mechanically the car is sound minus what appears to be either a small oil pan gasket or oil filter housing gasket leak. I never got around to replacing it as it wasn't that bad, usually just topped the car off with a couple quarts inbetween changes (oil changes done every 5 - 7500 miles). Passenger headlight is out because somehow one of the xenon ignitor wires got cut, can be crimped together no problem.

I tried to take into account both the pros and cons when pricing the vehicle but I can work with interested parties on the price a little bit.

ARC-8s are 18x8.5 ET38 by 18x9.5 ET35 and the diff came out of a 325i with 99k miles, at install all seals were replaced; diff fluid flushed and AKG poly bushings installed.

Yes. The 3.46 diff swap is pretty common and just involves swapping the input/output flanges. Work was done at a reputable indy shop and I have the receipts to show.

a 4-door would be a great donor for the 330iT ZHP i have in my head to build (and you are only a few hours away)!!! i have enough spare cars here, i don't need another, but as a donor, the 4-door would be good as i could re-use the interior also.

Well if you change your mind let me know and I'll meet you half way Seems like everyone is looking for a ZHP sedan but not a coupe!
