    Maintenance and repair summary - 2003 BMW 330i ZHP Maint Record

    I ordered the car early in 2003, shortly after the ZHP package was announced for Euro delivery in April of 2003. I think I actually picked the car up at the factory before any ZHP package cars were delivered in the U.S. I initially leased the car since BMW had an excellent lease deal at the time. When the lease ran out, I paid off the balance since I loved the car. That is why the Carfax shows 2 owners. It's been a great car for us, but we just aren't driving it any more since we bought a new car a couple of years ago, so it's time to let it go.

    The car has been very well cared for over the years, drives like new or a bit better, has an excellent interior and a very good exterior. I'm the original owner, it's never been in an accident, it's a Euro delivery car with the original Euro delivery items of warning triangle, first aid kit, and license plate. It also doesn't have a sunroof which provides extra headroom and a slightly lower center of gravity. The car has been garaged since new, first in the Los Angeles area, where we lived until September 2007 and since then in Colorado where we moved. There is no rust on the body and only a small amount of surface rust on the exhaust and a few of the bits on the underside of the car. It currently has a square wheel and tire setup with 18" x 9" wheels and 255/35-18 tires all around. The original ZHP 135 wheels are also included with an extra front and rear wheel for a total of 3 fronts and 3 rears; deduct $1,000 from the price if you don't want these. A fitted car cover will be included along with a few smaller bits and pieces that I've picked up over the years.

    It was maintained per BMW factory recommendations during the warranty period and Mike Miller's "Old School BMW Maintenance Schedule" since. Full maintenance and repair records since new except for a couple of missing receipts when the car was still under warranty. Factory and OEM parts generally used except for select upgrades like a Stewart water pump, Dr. Vanos upgrade, and GAS DISA upgrade. I believe in preventative maintenance, so many of the common problem areas like the cooling system, VANOS, and the CCV system were replaced before they had a chance to fail. All maintenance is up to date except for a brake fluid change which was due on 7/16/21. All mechanicals are in good shape and the car is solid; ready to be driven across the country if desired. There are no rattles or squeaks, doors close with authority like new, and everything works properly.

    The paint is original and generally in very good shape with the exception of the nose which shows wear and tear due to miles and a few parking curb encounters over the years. It looks good at 10 feet, but as you get closer the flaws become apparent. The front grill insert has a couple of small breaks in it, probably due to road debris; it's not noticeable unless you're looking for it. The rear bumper has a couple of scratches on it due to resting against a garage door one time when the door was opened. There is also one small ding, about 1/8" in diameter, just behind the passenger rear door; no idea what caused it.

    I'm frankly shocked that this car hasn't been lapped up by an enthusiast .. Meticulous ownership, desirable spec, extra set of wheels and above all a stand up guy who knows e46's inside and out.

    I think it would have sold already if I were still in SoCal. Not so many people are interested in RWD cars here in snow country. Actually, if I had a firm sale, I'd be willing to drive the car to SoCal or anywhere in between Colorado and there. I often have to go to SoCal on business, so it would take the place of flying one time.
