My Ride: ZHP Xi
Been on the site for a while with my Xi, but I just picked myself up a

2005 ZHP Sedan w/ 70k
Silver Gray over Alcantara w/ Black Cube
6-Spd Manual
HK Sound
Hardwired V1

To be added in short order:
CDV delete (The sooner the better, I forgot how annoying this little bugger is)
Clear corners, clear or smoked sides, R/C/R tails
Oil and all fluid change once I buy a jack that can actually get low enough for the ZHP

Man what a difference between the Xi suspension and the ZHP

My Ride: 2005 BMW 330Ci ZHP
Hello Everyone!

New member to the forum, though it has served as my information and research source for the past few years up until my purchase last year. Purchased in California and drove it back home to Illinois (probably one of the best weeks and road trips of my life).

To my knowledge in my town here in central IL, I own one of three ZHPs--the other two are each sedans (black and topaz blue)

2005 Orient Blue 330Ci ZHP (facelift)
Just passed 60k miles this driving season
Natural Brown and Black interior with Black Cube trim, Auto
Alcantara, HK audio, Cold Weather Pkg.
Mods: Black Kidney grille, debadged, painted front reflectors

Future:
-19in VMR 710s once the need for new tires comes around
-Sunshade fix--dang thing only opens with the glass
-Hazard light fix--took an apex at 55mph, next thing I know it stopped working!
-Perhaps an angel eye conversion

Wants:
Power dome hood

Thumbs Up Fantastic

Love the tires, though the driver needs a bit more track time to even come close to their potential. 2 schools and 2 xcros. The bad part. they gota come of in lees then 30 days. Suggested operating temp. 40-80 deg, that only happens 8 months a year here in northern Oh.

Question E46 330I ZHP Production Analysis

First of all, I would like to thank everyone that posted information about their ZHPs. I like all of the rest of ZHP owners have always wanted to know how rare these great cars really are. With all of your help I spent the last week gathering the info contained in this form (the largest count out there) and doing some analysis. I used this data by state in a comparison of ZHPs per state. I believe my results are very close to the closest logical answer I have ever found. "Two E46 330I Performance Packages option Code ZHP were allocated to each BMW dealership in the United States, all others needed to be special ordered."

With my calculations, my results are an average of .851 per dealer over the four production years. If this thread has a quarter for the total population, it's pretty close.

I have also broken down the thread data total of 381 ZHPs into; year, series and color. Note, that data is slightly skewed because the cars residing out of the US part of the final results but part of the data used.

Enjoy the stats and feel free to comet.

So few coupes compared to sedans...and even fewer in alpine white ... I feel good
Just like I suspected during my search for a ZHP coupe, Imola Red is one of the most common colors... good news for those who search for that color.

Wash, I would have grabbed an alpine white coupe if the right one had come along. However, I am pleased that I grabbed the imola red, even if they are plentiful.

You got a great one, though. Extremely low mileage and AW.

What's your current mileage?

Thanks - I must agree that common nor not, IR does look great, esp. in certain light conditions. Your car looks truly special.
My car currently has 14k miles.

How many miles you plan on putting on the car each year?

Wash, if you ever want to sell yours, don't forget to shoot me a PM first! I love your car. But, dang it, I keep forgetting that it's an automatic. If it was 6MT, it would be my dream ZHP.

Marcus, I highly doubt it, but if it ever comes to that, you will be the 1st one notified.
