2003 BMW 330i Sedan ZHP Performance Package

Developed by BMW Individual, the ZHP Performance Package added $3,900 to the price of your 330i model. That sounds like a lot, but you got some meaningful upgrades. M-Tech body pieces adorned the car front, sides and rear and blacked out trim replaced the chrome. So too were M-branded special Style 135 18″ wheels, with tires to match the width of bigger brother M3. Lower and stiffer suspension was met with more negative camber, special reinforcement, and revised control arms. The engine was upgraded too, with unique cams and a revised engine map resulting in 10 more horsepower, but the ZHP was more than 10 hp quicker off the line thanks to a shorter final drive and a 6-speed manual borrowed from M.

These are fan favorites, and can draw really big bids – indeed, some sell for more than M3s. Let’s take a look at this Imola Red example and see where it falls:

To me, this one strikes a middle ground. It’s in very nice condition, it’s a nice color, and it appears to be mostly original. Downsides? It’s got 140,000 miles and the asking price is $15,000, which feels close to M3 money. But a quick look suggests that this is probably close to the mark; a similar example with a few more miles sold for $13,000 a few weeks ago, though it had a fair amount of work done to it. You can still come close to an M3 at this price, though, which is something to consider.

  1. I’d much rather spend the extra $$ and get the M3, with the fender flares, LSD, bigger engine, etc.

  2. ZHP is just about the perfect 3 series for me. Like the lower costs compared to the M and a bit more special than the base.
