My Ride: 05 zhp, 04 325i
drlph25's 2005 ZHP

Hey guys, so I come on the forums pretty often but never actually post anything. After looking at all the photos of everyone else's cars I wanted to make a thread about mine.
Before I got my zhp, I had an 04 325i
IMG_1206.jpg

Although it was a nice car, it wasn't what I was originally after. I always loved the way the facelift e46 sedans looked, and I wanted a zhp. But when I saw this car for sale, something about it made me want it, I think I was just anxious to get into a new(to me) car. So after I got it I did the usual mods; coils, wheels, clear corners, side markers, and tail lights, a dynavin navigation and a bunch of maintenance. I was content for a while but after about 10 months of owning it I got bored and found myself yet again looking for a zhp sedan. After about a week of searching I found what I really wanted, a 2005 330i zhp, jet black, alcantara interior, 6 speed, and with about 59,000 miles.
Within a week me and a friend of mine drove about 11-12 hours roundtrip to pick it up.

About 3 weeks later I sold my 325i and got the maintenance up to date on my new car. I transferred some mods over from my old car, oem clears and eagle eye tails, the dynavin, and my alcantara wheel because the original one on the zhp was pretty beat up, and a new shift knob. I also picked up a set of orion v2 angel eyes.

I knew that once spring came around I would want a new set of wheels, but couldn't make my mind up on which ones, but I did know for sure that i wanted something 3-piece. So I got these over the winter.

Once spring started to get close I placed an order for coilovers. They arrived around 5 weeks later.

I put them on right away, along with a set of Bimmmerworld camber arms...

Now that the warm weather is here and all the snow/salt is gone, I put the wheels on, here is how it sits now:

Finally got a license plate delete strip, what a difference it makes without the front plate.

I'm in monmouth county and for the most part its fine, only time I had any trouble was from a park ranger at sandy hook beach, no ticket(told him I was taking pictures of the car and forgot to put it on) and he made me put it on since I had it sitting on the floor inside my car. Other than that I've driven by cops a lot lately and so far so good, granted its only been like 2-3 weeks though.

18x8.5 et38 and 245/35 on all 4 corners,pretty conservative and relatively light weight set up. I absolutely love how those wheels look on e46's though. I've been contemplating about getting a more aggressive set of the arc 8's, the concave on the 9.5/10 wide wheels are awesome

Holy chit man, awesome work!

I think the rear end would look better with some R/C/R's though (imo)

YES! I feel the same way about the rear. I've definitely grown to like the rcr's way better on sedans,especially facelift, rather than the eagle eye's. Been meaning to order a set but I am a procrastinator so you know how that goes.....ahaha.
