2003 BMW 330i ZHP

While the four-door M3 has been with us for the last two generations of 3 series, you were out of luck if you wanted an M-badged 3 series four-door when it came to the 1999-2005 E46 3er. Or were you? For a short while, BMW offered the ZHP package on E46 sedans, coupes and convertibles. More aggressive cams and modified engine management delivered 235 horsepower. Along with a modified suspension setup, this was a bit of an M3-lite. Whether it’s a standard or ZHP variant, it’s hard to come across mint condition E46 sedans these days, but this example for sale in Maryland looks to have led a pampered life, with under 60,000 miles on the clock.

Even though silver is a bit bland, this 3 series is exactly what one of these sports saloons should look like. Sitting down a bit on its haunches, with just enough added flair to hint at the extra brawn under the hood. Chris Bangle was responsible for the styling of this sedan, which was rather surprising given his unconventional approach with models that followed this car. At almost $18,000, this is a little steep for any non-M badged E46. Then again, this isn’t any ordinary non-M badged E46. The price isn’t way off the mark, but it might take a while to move at the current ask.
