    Only a 47 lb difference

    +1 on gear ratios. pretty sure the 06 E90 330i did not come with the 364 ratio's.

    The E90
    0-60 in 6.1 sec
    255 hp
    220 lb/ft torque
    The ZHP 0-60 time was quoted from this Car & Driver road test. http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...kage-road_test. They also Quote a 14.3 1/4 mile but, the best I could ever get with mine stock was a 15.133 and they quote the 330I without at 14.8. So I don't know how true this is!

    Sometime in mid-2005, the steering wheel changed to a leather perforated one, replacing the alcantara wheel.

    Yes. I believe it was August of 2005. Though do not hold me to that.

    All post 4/01 330's use the same part number steering rack.
    The ratio of this rack has not been confirmed, but it is believed to be different from that used on the 325's

    After doing all my research, I believe I was able to isolate the mysterious ZHP rack part number - and then able to obtain a rack.

    The quicker ratio steering over the 325 stock rack is immediately noticeable.
    This was a simple and relatively cheap mod.:

Again, perhaps coincidental, but I have come across 5 actual photos (enclosed) and they all have the same tag. Further, the production dates of these 5 racks range from 10/03 to 05/05, so appears there may have been some consistency using this specific rack across the years. I have also seen standard 330i tags and they have different ZF numbers.

    Was this after the end of sedan production? I've never seen a zhp sedan with a perforated wheel.

    I really like my Alcantara steering wheel. A little TLC and I'm good to go; plus, its a perfect application for driving gloves. I don't have a single car-crazy friend whose ride has such a feature. Leather wheel - nein danke. Alcantara is one of the many charactaristics that makes my Z a stand-out...
