    I'll check my car tonight, but I'm pretty sure mine has paint there, if still covered in a thick layer of dirt.

    ZHPMafia.com is a BMW E46 330 ZHP forum geared toward owners and enthusiasts of the BMW 330 ZHP. While the site says ZHPMafia.com -- which means that many of us are here because of the ZHP option package found on the E46 BMW -- we are an inclusive group. Thus, while the site’s primary focus is on the BMW 330 ZHP performance package, our members are interested, first and foremost, in all things BMW.
