Thread: New zhp owner from NC

  1. #1

    New zhp owner from NC

    Just picked up a 05 Coupe last week. No stranger to BMWs, I've had a few in the past including a M3 and 740i short sport. However it's been a while since my last BMW. I just left the liberating freedom mobile for the BMW when I sold my 98 trans am. Heck of a trade I must say.



    Now on to the new (to me) car.

    Car is an 05 with 77k miles
    Zhp
    6speed
    Moonroof
    Heated seats
    Alcantara
    H/k
    Xenon

    Oddly enough it's a non premium package car but has all the options minus the assist, homelink etc.

    When I got the car the previous owner did depot headlights, interior leds, motorsports shift knob, front lip, zsp 17's, adjustable rear control arms and a muffler delete.

    Future plans are some minor maintenance and touch up, back to 18's, suspension refresh, brake upgrade and hopefully more miles logged.







    My other rides are a Giant Trance I race in local endurance and short race series. A jamis nova race I use for cross and road riding and my 15' F150 for the utility trips and such.





    I also do detail work on the side as a weekend hobby, can't wait to get some time to see what kind of magic I can do for the BMW. Might do a write up on the process when I get around to it as well.

    Thanks!

    Frank

    Welcome from VA.

    "ZHP is a garbage option anyway- just some cosmetic upgrades with a different cam and diff to claw back some of the performance lost fitting those hideous and heavy wheels. Any 330 with a 3.46 diff will smoke a ZHP every time. The whole Mafia thing reeks of childish behavior." - anonymous E46 fanatic
