    Cadeez's Titanium 2004 ZHP - General Project Thread

    The day has finally come, I'm officially back in the ZHP game!! I've been on the hunt for another ZHP ever since I sold my last one (BMW Curves can attest to this), and regretted it. I loved my '01 330i sport, but it was pre-facelift and not a real ZHP...no matter how hard I tried to make it look/act like one. Anyhow, I'm super happy with the car I found, I actually flew down to Oakland and bought it from a BMW master tech who works at BMW SF. Car was as advertised, transaction went smoothly, and I had an excellent 10 hour drive home to really feel it out. Cosmetically it needed some love, but overall the car is in excellent shape, and was bone stock when I bought it. This post is half to welcome myself back to the Mafia, and half for keeping up a legit project thread with dates, mileage, pics, etc. which I've never done before. So allow myself to reintroduce...myself

    Details below...

    Summary
    Year: 2004
    Model: 330i Sedan
    Exterior Color: Titanium Silver
    Interior: Black Leather w/ Alcantara Wheel & Black Cube Trim
    Transmission: 6-speed manual
    Packages: ZHP Performance
    Purchased Date: 2/13/2017
    Purchase Price: $9k
    Mileage at purchase: 94,1xx miles
    VIN: WBAEV53424KM07473

    Here's a couple fun pics of my two boys side by side, old and new. Every single person I know thinks I'm crazy, ALL of them say, "but...that's the same car?" To which I just laugh





    Pics of the car after a thorough cleaning, as purchased, no mods/changes at this point











    It even came with OEM BMW racks, which I may sell


    The engine bay and underside are obscenely dry, and free of any leaks whatsoever

    Cadeez's Titanium 2004 ZHP - General Project Thread

    Welcome back! I too sold my last ZHP ('05 silver gray coupe) last summer and picked up a new one two weeks ago ('04 imola Sedan). So I know the feeling. And the second time, I feel like a know more... or will come to know more over time as I get more confident for DIY projects. Like a 2nd child...you know the 2nd time around

    Yours looks great. I love the silver with black trim. A classic. Enjoy!
