    The ZHP had a bespoke exhaust yet they put the BMW Performance which is basically a cut away version of the ZHP and they replace the amazing M-Teknic II bespoke ZHP suspension with Koni..... That suspension was genius and what made the ZHP the best handling daily driver in the world. 2 cents.

    Sounds like you're not a fan of those mods? IMO the BMWP exhaust and Koni FSDs are both tasteful mods that are an excellent addition to the car.

    ZHP dampers are just standard ZSP dampers, nothing special. I can't speak to the internals of the BMWP exhaust, but at least from the outside, the mufflers look completely different.

    The BMW Performance exhaust definitely has a deeper sound than the stock ZHP exhaust, which BMW claimed gave an extra 5 HP at 6,000 RPM.


    That said, I think exhaust note is in the ears of the beholder.

    As for the suspension, as t.er said, it was the same as the non-ZHP sport suspension. The Sachs shocks are usually dead after 50k miles, so many choose to "upgrade" to something from Koni or other manufacturers. Depends on what your definition of "better" is, but a lot of people here believe aftermarket shocks/struts perform better than the factory Sachs units.

    To me, the BMWP exhaust was not much diff from the ZHP one, but not saying I have the most refined ear for that.

    Ad is gone. FWIW, I have Koni FSD on my F30 and love them. Some people have refreshed the ZHP suspension with Koni and they are very happy with the results.
