    DW77's BMW 330i ZHP Maintenance and Mod Ledger





    2004 BMW 330I ZHP MAINTENANCE LEDGER
    Ok.....everything in my preventative/corrective maintenance section below....would/could pose a problem for you and this car in the future....my car is a 2/2004 330i, manual, with zhp package.

    When looking to purchase
    Look into/ask the question on whether or not the coolant system has been overhauled....the last time brakes were done.....what about CAB's and RTAB's.....check all window's (including the sunroof...ffs....for smooth operation)....check the sub frame for cracks......look for any type of oil residue on the block (take a flashlight with you)....Ask to see any/all maintenance records....ensure you operate the AC/Heat, and listen for abnormal sounds.....take the car up to a high rate of speed and note any irregular vibration.....check all lights.......drink a beer....ask him what kind of oil was used for the oil changes....drink another beer when you get the answer.....

    Also....much info can be gained at http://www.bimmerfest.com/wiki/index...ook_out_for.3F

    By the way, for those with Android phones, I recommend aCar. I am still setting up all the various categories, and have yet to appropriately setup the alerts, but great as a general ledger to track your purchases and repairs. I've also talked to the developer about corrected the formulas for ownership costs since the app doesn't account for the date of purchase, mileage at time of purchase, and cost of vehicle at the time of purchase. And yes, my ownership cost skyrocketed because of my money shift

    And I don't mean to derail, so let me know if this was not appropriate, and I'll make a thread somewhere else...

    Dane,

    Thanks for taking the time to write and post this up. It is very informative and especially helpful for guys like me who are looking to purchase a ZHP. How many miles were on the car when you purchased it?

    Thanks

    DW, why so many tire changes? My Bridgestones are only a bit over a year old and the rears are showing significant wear. What to you suggest? Hankook or the kuhmos?

    Yup...the Kuhmos are a fiscally responsible tire. So are Hankook's. So are Yoko's.
