My Ride: '03 330i ZHP
Hey From Oregon!!!


Hey All,

I'm new to the BMW scene and just got my first Bimmer, a 2003 330i ZHP. Coming from previously owning a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon GS, its nice being back in the Euro scene after having to say goodbye my B5.5 Passat after a tow truck rear ended me into an intersection and then I was t-boned by a Audi Q6.

My 06 Tiburon


Anyway, I have a lot of plans in store for this project, more so with aesthetics in the interior and some small and simple, yet tasteful mods on the exterior. So far, my plans are as follows:

Thanks man!

Yeah its awesome! The Tib was fun and all, especially with all the work I had put into it, but it was majorly lacking in the performance and satisfaction department when driving.

I think I saw your car parked while going on a sunny day stroll lol. Do you happen to live somewhere, say, off Foster in SE Portland?

Clear corners in the front and smoked in the back? Please remove those taillight tints.

Members on this board will flame you for it

Ya, the 330i zhp should satisfy your hunger for performance. It's the perfect blend of performance and comfort. Amazing DD. Have fun with your car and maybe I'll see you driving around!

Yeah, I'm off 162nd and Foster, up in that neighborhood development. I head down there all the time to take the 205 to 84 into downtown, where I work.

It definitely does, I was at Forum Fest this weekend at Pacific Raceways in Kent and there were some sick E92's there, an E36 that was done just right, and two other E46's.

Sweet!

Add me on fb as well. I'm thinking maybe we all should get together tomorrow night, seeing as its the 4th of July, and go somewhere to watch fireworks. I didnt buy any this year since I bought the Bimmer, but I think it would be a good chance to familiarize myself and others with P-Town E46 Fanatics.
