Poor Family Man’s M3: 2004 BMW 330i ZHP

BMW’s E46 generation 3 series was sold from 1999 to 2005 and if you wanted the hot M3 version it was only available in 2 door trim. Folks with little kids or the desire for a sedan had to settle for a regular 3-series, at least until the ZHP came out in 2004. The ZHP added a 6 speed manual trans, engine tuning, suspension work and some M-sport badges to the 3 series sedan at a price considerably less than the M3. Today’s example is ragged, but it is cheap. Find this 2004 BMW 330i ZHP offered for $6,900 in Burbank, CA via craigslist.
