i personally like the e46 styling better. i dont think the e90 is a sport sedan anymore, its more of a luxury sedan

Remind me what ZHP stands for? Still learning all the acronyms for Bimmers. Thanks.

It's a German acronym in reality, but
ZHP = High Performance package
ZSP = Sport Package
ZCW = Cold Weather Package
ZPP = Premium Package

The ZHP package adds a short shifter, Mtech front and Rear, +10hp, black headliner, different trim, and some other blah, blah, blah.:thumbup:

hey man we think alike..take a look at my post http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=208191

I'm still making a decision too but its coming down to the ZHP as my final decision...

I mean the e90 would be a change (and its not that I don't like it) but the ZHP would be the last of the e46 models and I just can't see it go

i thyink the e90 will be worth the wait :thumbup:
Agreed, I remember back in when the E46 body came out, I still liked my E36 better. I can't say I feel the same way after I drove the E46. Either way both will be great cars, but when the E90 is out you might find yourself in the market for a new car. You really will not know until you drive the car. I used to think that when I sold my 330, I would get a 530, but when the new body came out, that all changed and put me back in another 3(for now).

German acronym? I dont think so... It's simply a dealer code...

Let's see here, remove the Z and what do you get?

HP = High Performance
SP = Sport Package
CW = Cold Weather
PP = Premium Package

it's zuper I tell you!

Your brilliance fills our fair forum with awe... :rolleyes:

Clearly, I recognize that the letters stood for an English word as well given that I put the whole list up there in the first place. All I was say that, the letters may actually stand for a corresponding German word. Given that English is a "Germanic" language (look it up), this is not entirely impossible. I don't know, I could be wrong, but thanks for clarifying for everyone.

Cold = Kalt
Premium = Erstklassig
Performance = Leistung

Almost.

I personally don't like the new E90 bodystyle nor the cockpit design (it looks like a caddilac w/ that straight panel across the front). However, I'd still recommend you wait and get the new body style since:
1) people's preference change or at least they get numb about it.
2) you'll be driving for another 6 yrs a CURRENT generation car rather then a previous version.
3) I'm sure there'll be upgrades as technology enhances.

:werd: I'd at least wait until the new one is out a bit because perceptions do change, nobody liked the E46 either, now I think it looks 1000X better than the E36.
