    Cool My BMW 330 ZHP was the best Christmas present ever

    My 2003 330i ZHP is my second BMW; purchased CPO on Saturday December 23, 2006 @ 1136 days old. Both of my BMWs have had an influence on the family. The wife now drives a 2003 325CIc, and my son has a 1991 318is, that is a bit of a track rat.

    Below is some extreme detail of the history of mine for your enjoyment.

    Ho ho ho, I've enjoyed your detail. I recently visited Sun Motors while I was on a ZHP shopping trip. It is an awesome facility on 42 acres with Porsch, MB, Cadillac and something else I think. About an hour from me; got a tour of the service dept. A friend of mine is a BMW STEP trained mechanic that works there. He will most likely work on mine when I get one. He also works on my E36 M50.

    Great job! Thanks for the idea of the detail too.

    Love the second picture. I'm going to do a picture like that.

    By the way, if you want to make your signature picture bigger, give it a whirl, ZHP Guy.
