My Ride: BMW 330ci E46
Smile French BMW 330ci

Hello everybody ,

I'm from the Nord Est of France (2hours of the Nurburgring track :p ) and I want you to present my car!

It's a 2004 330ci E46 Titanium Silver with the "Pack M2" ( it's the european version of the ZHP package )

I bought this car in February 2009 with 45 250miles and today it has 46 500miles .

I really love this car and the beautiful sound of the 6 cylinders in line

I'm French so please don't blame me if I make mistakes when I write . Thank's .

Now the pictures :









And littles pics with my mother's car . A Mini Cooper S :

Thanks.

Check out this link... http://www.bimmerfest.com/wiki/index...rmance_Package

If I'm not mistaken, I think the Mtech2 package on your car is basically all the aesthetic components of the US spec performance package. As far as I know, the US is the only country where the performance package was an option. I guess major differences would be the cams, software, increased HP and torque, increased red line, exhaust, and maybe the diff ratio but I'm not sure on that.

As far as the angel eyes are concerned, since you have a facelifted coupe you will have to bake your headlights in an oven to loosen the glue that holds the lenses on. I installed mine a couple of months ago and I actually just helped a fellow fanatic with his install this past weekend. I used several D.I.Y.'s during the install. I'll post them shortly so you'll have an idea of what you up against. It's really not that hard to do but it intimidates people because of the baking in an oven.

Hello ,

ZHP is not really like the pack M2 because in the ZHP the needles of the meter are differents and ZHP versions have a augmentation of the power of their engine I think ...

But in in the exterior it's like the pack M2

Thank you for your reception everybody !!

Casse toi sale français !!!! Pout ton information les ricains detestent les francais.



Je deconnes.

Salut je suis Jacques Chirac , le français officiel du forum. Je ne possede pas de bimmer car mes moyens ne me le permettent pas mais la passion est la. Viens faire un tour sur le Off topic pour m'epauler face a ces maudits cow-boys !!! LOL

Impec tes bagnoles, Surtout le 330Ci.

Je suggere de peindre l'entourage des phares en noir.

Il y a pas mal de differences entre le M2 et le ZHP.

Le zhp a une foule de details supplementaires.

Volant alcantara

Moteur optimisé (arbres a cames etc...)

Echappement plus sonore et les pipes sont plus grosses

Suspensions plus sportives Que M2

Colonne de direction a un ratio encore plus court

Bonjour ami Français !

Merci pour tes compliments ! Je ne savais pas qu'il y avait autant de modifications sur les versions ZHP ... Quand tu dis que la colonne de direction a un ratio encore plus court tu veux dire que la direction est plus directe ?

Sinon pour l'entourage des phares noir c'est en fait les version équipés de feux halogènes ou xénon qui ont ce contour noir . Sur ma voiture j'ai des feux xénon directionnels ( ils tournent dans les virages ) et donc les contours des feux sont blancs .

Lundi je vais normalement essayer le nouveau Z4 . Je mettrais des photos ici si ca vous interesse !

Bye !

Salut Ami.

I maybe American, but French Grandmother from St.Quentin.

Lovely car, take care of it.

I do speak French and Spanish so I am covered. I feel bad for all the mono linguistic people here.
