Hello everyone. My name is Bruce and I live in The Woodlands, TX. For nearly 10 years, I’ve been following the forum discussions for general interest and to learn more about E46s. I thought I’d joined long ago but apparently not. So, today I did join primarily so I could post about an idling issue I’m having with my ZHP. But first, a little background on me. I currently have a fleet of four cars (all with my wife’s approval): a 2005 330Ci ZHP Coupe, Monaco Blue Metallic, Black interior, (10 mfg'd for US) with Dinan air & catback exhaust, 134K – been in family for 10 years. Also a 2001.5 Audi S4 (APR chipped) - 6sp MT for 16 years, a 2002 Audi allroad - 6sp MT for 10 years and a 2001 Honda Prelude (wife's) - 5sp MT for 6 years...love them all. Here are some pics of the ZHP. Looking forward to participating on the forum.

Bali, thanks for the welcome. According to the car's window sticker, the Monaco Blue Metallic (A35) was a $475 option for the '05 330. Only 22 produced (10 w/MT and 12 w/AT) for the ZHP Coupe in the US. It's my favorite color so I was excited to find one with that color.

Thanks. I was reading up on the story about your wagon today. Great scoop and nice what you've done to it. I can't live without a wagon either.

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, for me, the ZHP is the sweet spot for the E46s and my favorite of all the BMWs because of its refined styling, performance, ride and engineering (makes it easier to work on). Glad to hear you're pleased with your coupe also. And yes, I'm pretty fortunate that my wife has given me some slack to keep (for now) the four cars that I've pursued/acquired over the years.
