I would also love to go ZHP, but it's a significant price difference, and the next jump will be an M.

nice... post some pics of the car.... happy modding man

Gotta watch those early e46's - rear subframes tear (like e36's)

2001+ you should be ok (but no guarantees)

Also watch 1999-2001 cars, some have over-boosted steering, making the car feel like a plush Buick.

Go over to e46fanantics.com and do some reading (especially the FAQ).

ZHP rocks but I don't think it was available in Canada. There was an M-sport edition that looked like a ZHP but it was missing the Schrick camshafts and the 10 HP boost that came with it.

The ZHP was available in Canada, I bought mine new from Toronto BMW.

Thanks...

As I mentioned earlier, the "plush buick" steering of the 2001 (and maybe 2002) 330s can be fixed with a simple steering rack swap from any other pre 2000 e46 if you're handy with DIY.

I think a guy from Ottawa/Toronto wrote a DIY on e46fanatics (user - Croatia or croat something...)

Good luck!
