Thread: Another new guy here

  1. #1

    Another new guy here

    Long time BMW guy, mainly e30s, E36 M3/4/5, a random E34, then a E46 wagon that became my first family car, and currently dailying an E83 X3. Missed the fun of the M3 since I sold it (my wife likes her ring though ), and finally picked up a ZHP this past weekend. Total driver, 167k, lots of recent maintenance and runs great. I'm looking forward to getting back into autocross and tentatively planning on hitting a couple of DEs next year.

    Terrible picture, but everyone here knows what they look like (yes I swapped to 17 inch wheels, MD roads suck and I wanted a square setup)

    I actually sold my 325iT to a good friend, who subsequently bought a matching ZHP, which I in turn just bought (after he spent a year or so dumping money into it). So we swapped wheels. The ZHP wheels look great on the wagon, and I think these look just fine on the ZHP.

    No major plans, as the older I get, the more i appreciate how good a lot of BMWs are from the factory, so I'll mainly just be maintaining it now. I'll stick to that line until my first autocross, then I'm sure I'll change my tune!

    There are some bad spots in the paint and some interior issues I'll be addressing.

    Really enjoying all the threads here, tons of info for me to pour through!

    Welcome! 17" is a great size. You should also consider Style 68 since they came stock on MSport cars elsewhere in the world. The 119s don't look bad but 68s would be better suited for a ZHP.

    Welcome! 17" square setup is the best setup.
