Nice ride, Duke. Love the BMWs. Have a beater E30, myself. Think, once I get my debt were I want it, I will get either a nice E46 (much like yours), or a reeeally nice E30. After having one, I have grown VERY fond of them. BTW, name used to be spyhunter, in case you were wondering.

Thanks, Hunter! With the E90 out for a couple years now, E46s are surprisingly affordable. I bought this one (my first BMW) as an off-lease CPO car, about 30 months old and with less than 24k on it. I'm looking forward to many years of ownership. It's very easy to work on, and any maintenance has been a pleasure to do.

I've seen the ZSP moniker quite a bit mentioned online and such. Does it stand for or mean anything? These are some of the last good looking 3 series around before Bangle butchered them!

Hey, sorry I'm only seeing this 6 weeks later. ZSP is the order code for the Sport Package - it includes shorter and stiffer springs, stiffer damper valving, wider wheels, and much-improved seats, among other things. It was available on the E46 325i and 330i. The next notch up is the ZHP, which was the Performance Package, only available on the 330i. I really wanted one of those, but they were about a $7k premium over this car, and I just couldn't justify it. The ZHP was the best E46 sedan you could get - the E46 M3 was coupe only.
