    Thanks, interesting. Knew it was there.
    Would not load the graph at work but at home it will load the graph. High security filters.

    One of ten, sweet.
    And you wonder how many are still on the road?
    I got my body parts from an 05 ZHP coupe that was in the parts yard. Did not see the whole car.
    Looking forward to some seat time next month. Have a few more parts to get back on the car.
    Maybe even get to a gathering in Northern California.

    Is there anyone who can drill down further? I would like to find out how many of the 50 U.S. Imola/Naturbraun 6MT ZHP sedans were slicktop like ours. Intellectual curiosity, mainly. 1 of 50 is certainly not bad, but some of my E46 buddies have speculated it might be 1 of <10, and I don't know about that.

    Are these production numbers from 2003 to 2006 for all models - would like to know how many by year as the numbers are so low

    Supposedly a total of 91.144 E46 330i units were built.

    I can't find numbers for M Sport, but we can make a very rough guess based on the percentage of M Sport units on the used market.

    Currently there are 668 E46 330i units for sale on mobile.de. 139 of those supposedly have M Sport. Looking through some of them, I'd say about 30 are mislabeled or aftermarket, so let's say there are 109 true M Sport for sale. So about 16.3% are M Sport.

    So a rough estimate would be that about 14.856 E46 330i M Sport cars were built.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm pretty sure in Canada we had different build options than the U.S; one of them being the M-sport which included M-tech II bumpers, the black cube interior trim, and a few other bits including suspension. Basically, it was the ZHP without the 6 spd manual and engine upgrades if I understand correctly.

    Yes, what you are referring to is the MSport trim (English). In German and a lot of other languages it was called M-Paket (M Package).

    The 16.3% would essentially be the German MSport take rate by original customers buying a new E46 330i through a dealer. It gives us some idea of how many 330i units may been equipped with MSport from factory, but it's obviously not accurate.
