2005 zhp

Just picked up this new toy to join my e90 and e93. Nothing like a drop top down here in the south. 120k miles, no apparent leaks. Runs well. Hope to keep it for a while.

It wasn't my first choice for color but I couldn't pass up the deal. I needed a car for my daughter in college. I'll probably drive this myself for a little while and let her take it in the summer.

I tinted the windows. Upgraded the head unit. Still needs some interior reconditioning, and I may add angel eyes and clear corners. But it really doesn't need anything else.

Very cool color. I wasn't looking for silver when we bought ours, but something I learned 40 years ago is that when looking for used cars you can't really be picky about colors or options, especially on something fairly uncommon.

Great looking car! I have a 2005 ZHP convertible as well and love it way more than I thought I would. I find myself taking the back roads to and from work most days and look for excuses to drive it. I got it because I didn't want to keep racking up the miles on my truck. Now I wonder why I waited so long.

It's funny, originally my daughter wasn't too thrilled. But the more she drives it the more she likes it.

I'd swap you as I don't care for the angel eyes on my 2004. If only we were neighbors.

Just curious, why don't you like the angel eyes on your car?

Just not a fan. Don't really like the LED Tail Lights either. I'm just old school I guess.

Congrats on the vert and I like the color as well. When you say clear corners, I'm guessing you're referring to the front bumper reflectors? If so, might I recommend color matched reflectors so they blend with the front bumper. Looks very clean.
