The seller says it has the ZHP package but it's my understanding that the 325 didn't come with a ZHP package (only the 330 did right?).
Correct

M Sport package was not available on the sedans. There were 2 M Sport packages for the 325 models in Canada

In 2002 M Sport became available on the 325/330 Coupe and Convertible. Only the 330 models included the M Tech 2 aero bits. In 2003 M Sport was dropped from the 325 models.

In 2006 M Sport returned to the 325 Coupe and it finally started including the M Tech 2 aero bits.

No, M Sport and ZSP are different. ZSP only included wheels, sport seats and in some cases sport suspension. M Sport depending on the year had much more extensive list of options.

It was called M Performance in Canada and it was pretty much identical to the US ZHP and yes, it included engine upgrades. I believe the only difference is that in US you get red needles on the gauges.

Actually, VIN will tell you exactly what you want to know, so post the VIN
