My Ride: 08 M3/05 ZHP/08 R32
My New Car: 2005 330Ci ZHP 6-speed

Ok, so I just sold my second Bimmer last week, it was my 2000 328i ZSP that I owned for 2.5 years (My first was a 2002 325i ZPP). I loved nearly every moment of being behind its steering wheel, but I was ready for something else. It had 101k miles on it when I sold it and the options were ZSP, ZPP, ZCW, & HK. I had also modified the suspension and had lowered it on an H&R Sport Cup Kit, UUC SwayBarians, Meyle HD LCAs, and PowerFlex FCABs & RTABs. Here she was:


So just last week I picked up from California a 2005 330Ci ZHP with 6-speed manual transmission. The car is in perfect condition without a scratch or defect anywhere. It has 32k miles and options are ZHP, HK, TPM, Moonroof, Power Seats, and Xenons. I'm loving all of the ZHP additions and the extra power is very welcome. I just wanted to say hi though and show-off the new ride, so here she is:












I'm debating if I want to lower it right away on some KW V2 coils or if I just want to drive it and enjoy it as is in its perfect condition for the next year and then get either an E46 M3 or a 135i.

I'm loving the car, but let me know what you think.

Anyways my point was that, what was the point of getting this car if you're just going to replace it in a year?

The point of getting a car and then selling it in a year is to take a minimal loss on my investment into the car. The car has warranty for one more year and I bought it for a great deal. I can probably sell it in a year for close to what I bought it for this year. If you do that a lot then you never end up taking big losses on your cars.

Oh, and I think that the 135i is beautiful. I test drove one the other day and the thing is a monster!

Anyways, I wasn't saying that is what I'm doing for sure... It's just an idea. I've done it before and it has worked out for me wonderfully. I've even made money a few times.

OK cool well you cant go wrong with a zhp or M3. The 1 series is love for hate, a lot of people here love the 1 series. I personally think its too small and I also think its going to attract alot of Ricers who wanna upgrade their Civics and Evos.

I would keep this and be excited about it. If you got it for a great deal and its an immaculate car, stop teasing yourself with the idea that you're going to get another new car in a year. Just get ecstatic about this one and get to modding.
