NOT MINE. 04 330ci I think ZHP?

Here's a dealer selling a 330ci with the "sport package" but isn't that a performance package?

If it's a performance package, isn't this underpriced?

Yes, that's underpriced, considering it's well taken care of. And yes, its a ZHP.
Wish I had seen it when I was buying my car.

Would have gotten this instead in a heartbeat.

Never thought a dealer would have anything under priced lol.
there's also the fees to consider?

If it wasn't 500 miles away I would have checked it out

500 miles for a nice car that is a great deal is not really an excuse. I drove 400 to get my last car for half the price from an old lady.

My Ride: 2005 330Ci ZHP
That's a really good price pending the condition of the car. I wouldn't mention anything of that car being a zhp unless you want to pay more money.

You could actually get a great deal if you go see the car and test drive it, knock on the car for not having leather (alcantara will be to your benefit but make it seem like you don't like it), and also knock on it for being manual (once again, manual trans is to your benefit but make it seem otherwise). You can talk them down about $1k IMO.

It is indeed a zhp package. Just make sure the condition is great.

I'll talk to my uncle about it. My car is an automatic and I would love to get in a manual.. It'll also work to my uncle's advantage considering there's a bigger market for automatic cars who knows, but then again if it doesn't spark his interest i'm not really gonna think much more of it. I really hope someone buys it before the dealer finds out it's a performance package, or if someone buys it and doesn't know the difference, I feel like it'll go to waste.

Its a ZHP, but i wonder if its been in accidents, or even possibly has a salvage title. The thing thats leads me to believe this is
1) the price, seems low, but dealerships i dont believe are stupid (but then again, they could just not know anything about the car..)
2) No trunk lip on the car, leads me to believe that the rear end might have been replaced (just an assumption). Im sure theres those people that take them off, but its a thought. Just check the carfax

There was an option for a trunklid spoiler delete when ordering this car (code 326). It's possible the owner (or dealer) opted to do the spoiler delete. Additionally, in early 2004 there was a spoiler shortage, so some cars were not getting the spoiler -- even when the delete option wasn't chosen. BMW eventually made good on those spoilers, though, when customers complained (and BMW got them back in stock again). Spoilers were shipped to dealers who installed them on cars after they had already been built and delivered.

As for the price of this car, it's possible that the non-BMW dealer doesn't know what it has. It's being marketed as though it's a non-ZHP car.

But due diligence, as always, is in order.
