2004 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Purchased new, my ZHP as shown in many example pics for 04 330i sedan (dark gray) was a great intro to the UDM experience. Razor sharp and excellent power and handling, with great ride and economy to boot. Only one mechanical issue due to fuel quality. Good room for what is really a small car. Always looked forward to driving it.
All the M features of the ZHP package really sharpened and added to the driving experience. Almost perfect for a sporty daily driver. Only rarely did I wish for more power from the engine, which was free-revving and buttery smooth. Short throw shifter was also appreciated.
Interior features kind of slim for the price, and maintenance costs are high (OEM tires ran $1000 and I was probably in 90th percentile getting 40k miles out of them) once you have to start paying for them.
