Here is my 323iT Touring currently: still very stock. Its a 5-speed with the ZSP Sport Package. Currently 160k on her and going strong.










Current Mods:
-Matte Black Vinyl Roof, Vinyl'd front bumper
-Orion V2 6000k LED Angels Eyes
-50% tint (previous owner, Im looking to get 32, maybe even 20)
-Custom tinted tails,
-ZHP Shift knob w/ Alcantara Boot,
-M3 Steering Wheel
-Silver Gauge Rings,
-UUC Evo3 Short Shift Kit
-ACS Style CF Mirrors
-CF Wrapped Trim
-CF Emblems (near rear, who makes it for a Wagon?)
-Hardwired V1

All in all, good stuff, but pretty tame and not many Go-Fast Goodies.

Thats why I picked up these...

F1 Autohaus Ceramic Coated (Titanium) 330i Headers :4ngie:



M54B30 Intake Manifold with Turner Motorsport Throttle Body Adapter Plate




Cat-Back ZHP Exhaust and Muffler




OEM TiAg Mtech II Front Bumper




I know, I know... I don't really have a ZHP Touring, but I'm trying :facepalm:
[For an E46 thread on a REAL ZHP Touring, check out Stu's touring HERE]

Should be a fun next few weekends getting all of this installed! Comments and suggestions are welcomed :thumbsup:​

Very nice, I am trying to undergo a similar process. So far I have accumulated some 330I brakes, a ZHP Alcantara steering wheel, Koni FSd's, Michelin PS2's , Style 68 rims(OK, not ZHP, but nice looking on a Mystic Blue E46 IT) and Turner Anti sway bars. Considering a Shark Injector, but need to do maintenance first. Loving my Touring. I am hoping I like the handling when the parts get installed. I really would like to quicken the steering ratio. Anybody done that?

Great start! I am envious of your 5spd. I have a 2000 323iT myself and am loving it (sport package) but wished I could row my own.

(btw, nice pics!)

Good Luck.

I just put on a set of Koni's and H&R Sports and am loving it. This looks great.

Intake installed. really the easiest mod ever...




It sounds good, and I like the look of it (will be better once I take off Simota plate), but we will see about efficency gains (which I care more about than HP)

What intake are you other Touring guys using? If at all?
