    Webster's 2004 BMW 330i ZHP Project Thread

    Figured it's time to start a project thread for the new OG/NB sedan.

    Purchase date: 7/4/17
    Purchase price: $11,500
    Mileage: 167,000

    Pics at delivery:




































    Caveat: I agreed to buy this car sight unseen after having a thorough PPI conducted by Black Forest Motorwerks in Austin, TX. The car checked out fantastic with only minor issues, mostly cosmetic. There are a couple of very small rust spots in nonvisible places such as underneath hood. I'll have the rust issue death with. The car is almost completely stock save an exterior tint (35% all around), matte black grilles, and smoked front corners which will be returned to stock ambers.

    Upon arrival my estimation of overall interior/exterior condition is good/very good but I am picky. The paint is 100% original which is awesome. I'll probably have a paint correction/restoration done at some point. Few rock chips on the front, elsewhere there are some small nicks/scuffs but nothing major. The interior overall is very good/excellent - leather and dash in excellent condition. Few nicks on the black cube that I'll probably just sharpie in the short term. Fair amount of wear on driver seat bolster.

    I'm going to send the car into my Indy shop pretty soon to confirm the mechanical evaluation from the shop in Austin. Immediate plans for the car are included but not limited to:

    - complete cooling system overhaul incl. Behr radiator and EMP Stewart water pump
    - TMS power pulleys
    - Dr VANOS rebuild
    - TMS CF strut bar
    - Dinan Air Intake
    - Shark Injector tune
    - UUC stainless steel brake and clutch lines
    - UUC clutch stop
    - ///M dead pedal + door sills
    - Rogue Engineering Octane SSK
    - OE 135 ZHP wheel refinish
    - New OE floor mats (anthracite)
    - New Coby Alcantara ZHP shift knob
    - Leatherique leather treatment
    - OE Amber front corners

    Future plans:

    - M3 side mirror mod (this may happen sooner than later)
    - Koni FSD Suspension + Eibach Sport Spring kit (eventually once the stock shocks go)
    - APEX ARC-8 Wheels (debating the rear fitment: flat v. Concave/roll fenders)
    - G.A.S. Gold DISA valve
    - OE rotors + Akebono ceramic pads (once brakes go)
    - Michelin PSS/PS4 (once current rubber goes)
    - Front license plate trim delete


    Thread will be updated once progress gets rolling!
