True story, and I have paperwork to prove it. this was just a couple months back. after numerous private offers of $20-22k this past summer, most clean ZHP's will pull in a good $2X,XXX something this upcoming spring.

With your logic, I guess everyone should be listing any E36 for $2000 because thats all they're worth (even the M's) right? * sarcasm *

A car is worth what the buyer wants to pay. Providing the car is great condition, Find the right buyer, and any car will sell for your asking price.

Not everyone wants to buy a high mileage 02 M3 Coupe for $2X,000, and the ZHP is the perfect medium for a daily driver, between the basic 330ci compared to M3.

E90s 330 motor is NOT proven, like you say.

I too would prefer the last and proven NA motor over eh new FI, and thats why I got my my E46.

The motor in the E90 330 was produced for a VERY short period of time before BMW went to FI, sure it made good power(I believe 255hp for north american models) but thats NOT enought to convince me to sit in an uberly ugly car that handles like my friends Camry. The car itself is crap:
-VERY cheap interior design
-handles like a pig
-just an overall SOFT car
-a complete opposite of the Ultimate Driving Machine

Sorry guys, E90s are crap. They were NOT built for people who enjoy driving, not for enthusiast. They are for the general public.

You guys ever drove an E9X? If you have, you'd know what I'm talking about. Even if you drive a 335i , you'd hate it after a month or so (when you get used to the power, you'll see that the rest of the car is crap).
+1. coming from an E90 xi owner.
