New from MN!!

Hey guys, I've been lurking on the forum for a couple weeks now, thought I'd pop in and say hi!

My name's Chad, I recently bought an '03 330xi, fully loaded and tastefully modded. It has the Sport Package, Winter Package, is a 6 speed, and is black in color. I'll try to upload some pics when I get a chance (still need to do a photoshoot of it).

Mod list as of now:

Koni Adjustables all around
Lowering springs (unknown brand)
Moda 18" wheels
UUC exhaust
UUC Shifter knob
CAI
Tint

I look forward to learning more about these cars, as I've slowly made my transition from American cars (been in the F-body and Mustang world for a good while) to BMW and the like.

Cheers!

Newb question...

How can I tell if my car is a ZHP? I've searched but haven't come up with many definitive answers.

If you have an xi you don't have the zhp package.

Zhps have a different front and rear bumper, the dials(idk the word) in the cluster are red and not white, and zhp steering wheel are cosmetic differences.

Copied from Wikipedia
The performance package was an inclusive option given to E46 sedans from 2003 to 2005, coupes and convertibles from 2004 to 2006.[20] It included various aesthetic changes over the regular 3 series, as well as functional and mechanical enhancements. It had M badges on each of its Style 135 wheels, with additional M badging on the multi-function steering wheel and atop the 6-speed short throw weighted shifter. In addition to the standard color options, the ZHP was available in the "Motorsport-only" color Imola Red. It received the "M-Tech II" bodykit standard, 18-inch staggered Style 135 wheels, high gloss anthracite window trim, and the coupe received clear turn signals (headlights, side-markers, and tail-lights) instead of the amber turn signals found on the standard 330Ci.[20] The interior had also been modified with half cloth-half alcantara sports seats (optional upgrade to leather), an alcantara-wrapped sports steering wheel (switched to perforated leather in mid-2005), a shorter M-badged shift knob, anthracite colored cloth headliner, and aluminum "cubed" faux-carbon fiber interior trim (available in silver or black). The instrument gauge cluster was also modified with red needles and polished metal trim rings.[21]
