ZHP = M Performance Package?

Is that true the M Performance Package offered in Canada is the same as the so called ZHP offered in the U.S.?

In particular the following is what I'm curious about:
-The extra 10HP & 8ft/lb of torque from new camshafts
-3.07:1 Final drive ratio vs. 2.91:1

One of my friends told me there is a difference in that the Canadian version didn't have the extra HP or change in final drive

Any ideas?

Okay how about the M Sport Package vs. the M Performance Package? Does the M Sport Package have all the cosmetics, minus the increase in engine performance and different final drive that the M Performance Package has?

and some interior appointments like alcantara on the steering wheel which later got replaced by the perforated leather because the alcantara wore out into little balls and the red needles on the gages.

...interesting. Thanks guys

The increase in power and final drive probably isn't that big of a performance difference.

One more thing, does anyone have any idea how much the M-Sport Package and the M-Performance Package options cost? I just need a rough idea, thanks

Yes - variation in Canada was the M Sport package - everything the same with the exception of cams, engine management, short shifter, rear diff and some cosmetic items e.g. US spec ZHP has red needle guages, about 3/4 of the production run ZHP's have alcantra covered steering wheels. To the untrained eye a 2003/04 Canadian spec M Sport package appears to be a ZHP. BTW - ZHP was a factory code - the car in the US was also marketed as M Performance.

a 04 330ci M-performance without the premium package was ~$62-63k on the road (in aug. 2003).
