Below is a bunch of general information pulled from the internet, in case you are unfamiliar with the ZHP. I do not guarantee the accuracyof this technical information. Sorry if some things were repeated, but do your own research to learn more about these cars.

The E46 BMW 330i sedan won comparison test after comparison test on the strength of its performance and handling prowess. Never being a company to leave well enough alone, the introduction of the Performance Package raised the driving experience of the BMW 3 Series Sedan to an even higher standard.
The E46 330i Performance Package (Option Code: "ZHP") was created exclusively for the U.S. market for enthusiasts by enthusiasts at BMW Individual, a division of BMW M GmbH. There was no aspect of the driving experience that had not been enhanced by the Performance Package. Modifications to the 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine, which included different camshafts and performance-modified Digital Motor Electronics, yielded a 10 horsepower increase to 235. For the first time in a 330i a six-speed manual transmission came standard. With the Performance Package it included a short-throw shifter. The package also included a shorter final drive ratio.
The benefits of these modifications were immediately apparent - the E46 330i with a Performance Package accelerates from 0 to 60 miles-per-hour in 6 seconds, about half a second faster than a standard 330i. To match the straight-line performance a new sports suspension, more aggressively tuned than the 330i's standard sport suspension, is mated to 18-inch wheels with mixed-size performance tires. In addition to the wheels and tires the exterior of the 330i Performance Package is distinguished by it's Aerodynamic Package, black headlight trim, high gloss shadowline trim and an exhaust system that not only appears but also sounds more aggressive.
The look and feel of the interior had been refined with cloth and Alcantara sport seats matching the Alcantara sport steering wheel. An anthracite headliner and Black cube aluminum trim completed an ambiance tailored to the enthusiast. Silver cube aluminum trim was optional. The instrumentation included red needles while the tachometer reflected the modified engine's 300 higher rpm limit.

During the early days of the E36 3-series production run (1992- 99), a BMW product planner came up with a radical idea. Returning from a Lamaze class with his wife, and contemplating impending parenthood, he said, "Perhaps we need a four-door model in the M3 lineup."

Radical, yes, but the concept found favor with top management, and the first-ever four-door M3 joined the lineup for the '97 model year. In the U.S., at least, the experiment was a success. Even though the four-door E36 went out of production in May 1998 to make room for the new E46 3-series sedans, 7760 were sold in 1997 and '98, accounting for more than 46 percent of M3 sales in the U.S. for those two years.

With that kind of track record, you might have expected to see a four-door M3 in the new body style. Nein. Owing to the need for extensive body revisions (read "fenders") to accommodate the M wheels and tires, BMW balked. Unlike the E36, the E46 four-door shares very little sheetmetal with the coupe and convertible. Since the U.S. was the only market with strong four-door M3 sales, the business case didn't add up. If you wanted M3 performance but you needed four portals, you were out of luck.

That's still true, but for about four grand, you can be a little less out of luck than before. That's the price of BMW's new Performance package, a collection of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades that make a 330i four-door quicker and slicker.

Cosmetic elements include a so-called aerodynamic package (deeper air-dam and rocker-panel extensions), Alcantara faux-suede seats and steering-wheel cover, black-anodized interior aluminum trim, and gauges with red needles. Reduced to verbiage, it sounds a little glitzy, but BMW's execution is subdued and tasteful.

In any case, it's the go-faster bits that set this enhanced Bimmer apart from the rest of the 330i establishment. The list includes reprogrammed engine management, hotter cams, a six-speed manual gearbox (a first for a non-M 3-series BMW), and a shorter final-drive ratio-3.07:1 versus the 2.93:1 rear end used in the base 330i with manual transmission.

The suspension components are a smidge stiffer than the setup in the base 330i, and the Performance package gets an 18-inch wheel-and-tire combo versus 17-inch wheels on the standard version. The package also substitutes Michelin Pilot Sport tires for the Continental ContiSportContacts that come in the Sport package, with a slightly lower profile and slightly bigger rear footprints: 225/40ZR-18 front and 255/35ZR-18 rear compared with the Sport's 225/45ZR-17 front and 245/40ZR-17 rear.

The redline goes up 300 rpm to 6800, peak horsepower goes up 10 to 235, and torque goes up eight pound-feet to 222. But a little more thrust and shorter gearing do pay off at the track. Our Performance-package 330i sprinted to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and covered the quarter-mile in 14.3 seconds at 97 mph.

The quickest 330i test times we've recorded prior to exercising this enhanced edition came in our first instrumented encounter with the 3.0-liter 3-series back in December 2000: 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds, the quarter in 14.8 at 95 mph. More contact patch pays off on the skidpad, where the Performance-package Bimmer pulled 0.86 g (compared with 0.83 in '00), and also in braking-158 feet from 70 mph versus 168.

On the subjective front, firmer suspension tuning, lower-profile tires, and reduced (by 0.6 inch) ride height add up to responses that are quicker than the base 330i's. The distinction isn't vast-a little less body roll, a little more enthusiasm in brisk direction changes-but it's noticeable. And the tuners have managed to achieve this without any real sacrifice in comfort. None of your hard-edged M3 ride here.

Obviously, you don't get that with the Performance package. But you do get a nice uptick in all-around performance, with virtually no sacrifice in comfort, and of course four doors, for about seven grand less than you'd have to pony up for an M3 coupe. That's a pretty good start on a college fund for the new baby

The ZHP sedan was available from 2003 to 2005, and the ZHP coupe and convertible 330 were available from 2003-2006. For 2003 the ZHP was available only in a manual transmission but starting in 2004 BMW added the option of a five speed Steptronic auto. Interestingly, it was the first six speed manual in a non-M 3 series.

Itʼs a running joke that the ZHP isn’t a special car.

Funny thing is, the ZHP optioned 330 has a cult like following among BMW enthusiasts with its own forum – the ZHP Mafia.And a presence on Facebook. As with the E46 M3 itʼs resale value has remained high.

Whereas there were M3 sedans in the E36 and E90 body styles, the ZHP sedan was the closest you could get to a four door M3 in the E46 line. I can see the argument that itʼs just an option package, but to me, itʼs proved to be a special BMW.

The performance package was an inclusive option given to E46 sedans from 2003 to 2005, coupes and convertibles from 2004 to 2006. It included various aesthetic changes over the regular 3 series, as well as functional and mechanical enhancements. It had M badges on each of its Style 135 wheels, with additional M badging on the multi-function steering wheel and atop the 6-speed short throw weighted shifter. In addition to the standard color options, the ZHP was available in the "Motorsport-only" color Imola Red. It received the "M-Tech II" bodykit standard, 18-inch staggered Style135 wheels, high gloss anthracite window trim, and the coupe received clear turn signals (headlights, side-markers, and tail-lights) instead of the amber turn signals found on the standard 330Ci.The interior had also been modified with half cloth-half alcantarasports seats (optional upgrade to leather), an alcantara-wrapped sports steering wheel (switched to perforated leather in mid-2005), a shorter M-badged shift knob, anthracite colored cloth headliner, and aluminum "cubed" faux-carbon fiber interior trim (available in silver or black). The instrument gauge cluster was also modified with red needles and polished metal trim rings.

In the performance department, the ZHP was equipped with the more aggressive DMEtune to increase power from 225hp (168kW) to 235hp (175kW).The engine redline raised from 6,500 rpm to 6,800 rpm to take advantage of the new power band and higher power output at higher RPMs.As a result of the higher redline, the nut that fastens the oil pump's sprocket came with threadlocker pre-applied from the factory to keep the nut from falling off.The car also received a shorter final drive ratio which allows for faster acceleration; 3.07 vs. 2.93 for manuals and 3.64 vs. 3.38 for the automatic. Car and Drivermagazine track-tested the car, which returned a 0-60mph time of 5.6 seconds and passed through the 1/4 mile in 14.3 seconds.In 2003 the ZHP featured a 6-speed manual transmission (the Steptronic automatic transmission was not available the first model year (2003), but it was offered from 2004 to 2006).

Suspension was modified over the standard suspension with firmer springs and dampers, larger anti-roll bars, stronger front control arm ball joints, a lower ride height, and slightly more negative camber. The Style 135M wheels also came equipped with the much stickier compound, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, in a staggered configuration with 225/40-18 tires in the front and 255/35-18 tires in the back.

330 ZHP Performance Package (USA)
In January 2003, at the Los Angeles International Car Show BMW of North America introduced the 330i Performance Package, order code ZHP. This was a trim-level upgrade that included engine modifications for an increase of 10 hp (7 kW), 8 lb·ft (11 N·m) of torque, and a redline increase to 6,800 rpm (from 6,500 in the regular 330i). The ZHP option also provided a 6-speed short-throw manual transmission, a higher final drive ratio and speed limiter setting, a suspension tuned for better handling, and various BMW M
interior and exterior trim elements. The color option of Red replaces Electric Red when ordered with ZHP Performance Package, otherwise only available in the M-series. Europe received slightly more cosmetic upgrades with the UK Clubsport Package, available only for the 330Ci coupe models. The ZHP package helped BMW fill the gap from the departure of the four-door E36 M3 in 1998, as the E46 M3 was only available in coupe and convertible form. The ZHP package was available for the E46 platform beginning with mid-2003 330i sedans, and the following year for 330Ci coupes & convertibles. It has become a highly sought-after model due to its unique modifications. Car And Driver magazine track-tested the car, which returned a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds and passed through the 1/4 mile in 14.2 seconds.

As stated earlier, this car has been painted satin black from its original gloss black color. The hood, roof, and trunk lid have been carbon fiber vinyl wrapped. With new carbon fiber hood and trunk emblems added for detail. Also, the windows and tail lights have been tinted. This is almost a blackened or murdered out car, but still has stock alloy silver rims, that do have some curb rash. If one wanted a blackened out BMW ZHP, all they have to do is paint or dip the rims, everything else is already black. I personally like the rims silver to offset the black, but maybe you have something else in mind. Everything else is factory stock. The passenger mirror has to be adjusted by hand, not sure if a fuse is burned out. A few of the power windows may need adjusting, but work well. There is a small windshield chip that is not noticeable. Tires have a lot of tread, air blows ice cold.

Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs, but I will gladly help arrange and secure vehicle for delivery.
* It comes with an OWNERS MANUAL on CD.* Cigarette lighter and ash trays have never used.
