    We have the F22 witch is said to be the closer match!

    Definitely more power and in Sport+ mode, the handling great but, I’m still more of a ZHP fan.

    ZHP is simple bones performance. If you know your gears, you can have the power on demand whenever you want/need it.

    On the F22 it’s all about the button mode.

    I did a hour + long back road drive, with a good variation of elevation, switchbacks and long flats.

    In the hills and switchbacks, you need Sport+ but, as soon as it ends, you’re in unneeded high RPM’s. And when that happens, I’d rather be in comfort mode. With the E46 ZHP, you just move to 5th or 6th.

    There is such a thing as an F30 ZHP. Very very few people have them, but they exist.
