Bump, if this doesn't sell soon I'm putting plates and winter wheels back on and keeping it until the spring. Now's your chance to get a VERY nice ZHP in the off-season and save yourself some $$$!

The 330 is back up for sale. I parked the M3 and drove the 330 through winter. This now has 130,000 kms on it and I will be selling it early April when I start driving the M3 again!

I dont think this e46 is a ZHP...as your redline looks like it starts at 6500 RPM...ZHP has a 6800 RPM. Pics show 6500 RPM unless im mistaken and it does really start at 6800 RPM.

You clearly didn't read this thread, this has been covered. Canadian M Performance Package cars had option code ZAM, not ZHP. The ONLY difference is that Canadian cars retain standard 330Ci gauges and needles. I advertised it as a ZHP because it's a well known term for this package. If you don't believe me, look at my exhaust tips. That is the Performance Package stainless steel exhaust. 330Ci M Sport vehicles have the chrome "tips" like all other 330s.

What's up with the name calling and bashing? He was respectfully pointing out something.

GL with the sale

If I say it's an M Performance package, it's an M Performance package. He could have read the thread and learned about the car instead of implying that I was lying. That's not respectful at all.

A lot of people mistake a regular M Sport for the M Peformance...it's not hard at all, even for an enthusiast it can be hard based off of just pictures. I don't see how he was referring to you as a liar based of what he said:

"...unless im mistaken and it does really start at 6800 RPM. "

Yup, it's very easy to make the mistake. Like I said, the only visible difference between M Sport and M Performance is the exhaust tips. But if he had taken the time to read the posts, he would have seen that mine is genuine.

I have seen a couple of M Performance 330ci's with 6800 RPM redline with KM/H in Toronto....i dont understand why BMW would put the (Zen (10) HP) cam upgrade without the pump in RPM...I dont see the reason for calling it M Performance without the extra 10 HP....so your ZAM has the 10 HP cams or not?

My car does have the upgraded cam, BMW Performance exhaust, 235 hp, and a 6800 RPM rev limiter. No Canadian car got the 6800 RPM gauge cluster redline or red needles from the factory, but it is something that COULD be retrofitted. So either you found a Canadian vehicle with a DIY retrofit, or an imported US-market vehicle.

Update: The May 2010 issue of Bimmer Magazine has a "10 Great Driver's BMWs Best Buy" article and guess what's number 1: 330Ci ZHP Coupe! Here's your chance to get a wonderful car.

Edit: here's a couple quotes from the article:
"They also got one of the nicest suspension setups BMW has ever created."
"The ZHP cars are the nicest non-M 3 series ever made, and they're more reliable than the newer twin-turbo E90 335i."
