For those that read my previous thread from last week about the alpine white 330ci ZHP with the replacement ZHP motor...

Went and drove it on Saturday...it all checked out. The car was very clean...the motor pulled strong...no issues with clutch...everything worked on the car including the sunroof, heated seats, powers seats, stereo, mirrors.
Started right up...brakes great (new pads)
Two things...needs an alignment and the flex disc is gone but my friend (a former BMW mechanic/shop owner) said buy the part for $70-$80 and bring me a 12 pack of beer Saturday and I'll replace it for you:excited:

Paid $13,000
So...looks like another e46 has been added to the family...this will be our 3rd one. I love the M3 sterring wheel he replaced the orginal with and I love that alcantara interior with the black cube trim. ..my son is so excited about his first car!

Yes- for my son...treating him to the Spartanburg school in May (just like I did with his older brother 4 years ago) and then all 3 of us are going to Carolina Motorpsorts Park in June for their DE
They're one of the few with a beginner group for 16-17 year old drivers.

The car sat for some period of time and we're assuming that caused it to dry-rot prematurely. Honestly, It could have been defective from the outset. All I know is it's going and needs to be replaced.
Other then that the car is like new.

These 3 will be tearing it up in the Beginner-Advanced-Solo catergories

engine replacement due to failed hose...overheated engine...blown gasket
Spoke the service shop that did the replacement. All checks out.

Guibo---your guess is as good as mine
