    New owner of a '04 330i Sedan ZHP - Birmingham, AL

    Hello all, I am excited to say that I am now the proud owner of a 2004 330i Sedan w/ZHP. It is Imola Red over Black w/98,000. After much research, I feel I got a great price for this car that is like new on the interior, has no leaks, service light, etc. It has full maintenance records and most of the service was performed at BMW dealerships. For these reasons I could not pass it up! First stop will be my local BMW shop for a subframe strengenthing kit, complete fluid replacement service, and VANOS check as I plan on using this car for spirited driving, auto crossing, and the occasional track day. Only issue I discovered was that the seller knocked off the passenger side mirror, but I believe it will only take the outer shell, and glass to fix. Thanks to all as this page has so much great info on it!

    Thanks;

    Interestingly enough, according to the CARFAX service records this care spend the last 2-3 years in Huntsville with service performed at "Century Automotive Group" so maybe you have crossed paths with my new baby! I love the mods you have done and I will be headed the same direction after I get the basic inspection, etc done. Do you have the subframe reinforcement kit done? I've read ALL E46's have this issue and I've read only pre-2001 have this issue so i have no clue who to believe but in my mind it's better to error on the side of safety/dependability since this car will be pushed.

    We both seem to have good taste when it comes to colors!

    I have seen that the Turner BMW guys sell a chassis reinforcement kit, so I'll likely buy that.
