PLEASE READ: PLEASE feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, that are NOT answered in this auction. continue to volley messages back and forth with "interested" parties who are obviously not that interested. This is solid vehicle with LOTS of new parts, in great condition, with recent maintenance over and beyond what's required. am "car guy" with several daily drivers, take care of them and this vehicle is NO exception.
I will require $500 deposit upon commitment to purchase the vehicle, whether it's via this auction, or personal contact...the deposit is NOT refundable unless you or shop determine there is MAJOR issue with the vehicle. This includes MAJOR engine/drivetrain or vehicle integrity issues...I will NOT refund the deposit because "I found another vehicle want to purchase" or "My shop found cracked knob on the radio" (there are NO cracked knobs :^)
For auction is 2004 BMW 330ci Coupe, with ZHP/SPORT Package...read on for details. Vehicle highlights are: speed manual sunroof coupe with factory Xenon headlights, heated leather sport seats, cold weather package and COLD AC.
I've owned the car for just over two years/~15K mi. time for change. It runs very well and has an unbelievable list of new parts since ownership.
The ZHP package encompasses ton of major and minor differences from your average 330, some items: Factory Sport Suspension Package, lowered, stiffer springs/sways and sport valved shocks. Exterior package includes "piano black" trim throughout, M-tech front bumper, rear diffuser, side skirts, trunk spoiler and "badgeless" trunk lid. The engine comes factory with Alpina cams and upgraded ECU software for 10-15hp advantage Factory stainless Sport exhaust. Factory Xenon headlights. Diff. gear ratio is slightly lower, coupled with the M3 six speed trans. makes for quick/peppy rummage through the gears. The factory interior upgrade package is very tasteful, with ZHP specific "cube" anodized aluminum door, dash and console trim. Alcantra steering wheel/shift and E-brake boots. Leather Sport seats (heated!), M-Sport steering wheel, gauge package and shift knob. Harman Kardon sound package w/ factory subs.
The Exterior: Remains in good condition, all paint intact/shiny. All piano black window trim is in excellent condition, NO scratches. Due to some curb scrapes and rock chips, car could use some paintwork on the front bumper, side skirts and hood. New clear side markers (located on each side of front fenders) made huge difference in looks over the fogged/yellowed originals. Windows were recently tinted by the best tinting place in the region, Atlantic Shoreline, Va. Beach Va. Legal using the highest quality tint package. Driver side view mirror cover has clip in tab missing, both mirror glass have the typical corrosion on the polarization/tinting. *** will include BRAND NEW/IN BOX mirror covers and both polarized glass pieces with sale of vehicle. Covers will need to be painted to match vehicle.*** had intended to renew the glass and covers if ever got the front bumper/hood painted. US Millworks front license plate mount included you can see it in some of the pics, it is VERY high quality piece...this allows you to fill/paint the front bumper cover for NO HOLES solution! Wheels were refurbished by Alloy Wheel of Va. shortly after purchase and wife has facilitated light scuff on left front since then. She is still alive. :^) Tires have almost 10K mi. on them and are considerably sticky Kumho All Seasons. The tires match the capabilities of the suspension indeed.
Suspension/Chassis: Every bushing and mount on the vehicle has been changed/updated, from the shifter to the engine to F/R suspension. Driveshaft Guibo replaced, Driveshaft slip joint cleaned and serviced with fresh grease. Shifter bushings replaced. New tie rods/boots, front wheel bearings and PS lines replaced. New front control arms and shocks were changed prior to purchase, I've replaced everything else. RTABS were replaced with factory bushings and aluminum Apex "limiters"...probably the only non-stock item on the suspension. They simply limit over-extension of the RTABS, so they last longer.
Engine/Driveline: All synthetics from engine to gearbox to diff. New intake boot, idle control and DISA valve, new VANOS mechanism and pressure feed line. Lower vacuum line package recently replaced. (Famous for causing codes) Full cooling system maintenance performed, Fall of 2015 to include water pump, overflow bottle, belts, thermostat and radiator. Exhaust manifold gasket and O2 sensors were changed to clear lean bank2 code few months ago and no codes since. New clutch/pressure plate and throw out bearing replaced in 2015, along with transmission and engine mounts. New exhaust gaskets, hangars and E-brake cables replaced at same time.
Interior: Interior is 9.5 out of 10 with the A-pillar material peeling, as normal and some light scratches in "Cube" pattern of ZHP specific door handle trim. Factory Alcantra steering wheel/shifter/E-brake boot. Radio/Cruise controls on steering wheel. Center console, cup holder, etc. are all new with the goofy arm rest deleted. Original center console with goofy ass arm rest conveys with sale. Factory Harman Kardon sound package with CD/Radio, component door speaker and rear subs, iPod cord installed. Leather seats are in amazing condition, small seam on driver seat, upper bolster, the thread has split...the seam edges are still intact, this is simple fix for an upholstery shop. Carpet is excellent and Factory HD "Weathertech" style rubber floor mats, front/rear convey with sale. Takata airbag recall was performed, Summer of 2015 on passenger airbag still waiting for local dealership (Checkered Flag VB) to get back with me to advise they have the parts for the steering wheel recall. Recall completed or not at time of sale you have just as much right to have it replaced as do. so don't fret, and don't make it contingency for purchase...your local BMW dealership has to honor the recall.
All maintenance/upgrades have been performed by factory trained BMW tech (some dude that married my daughter) and myself, well versed P-car hack.
What can say about this car?
Well, I'm race car builder/owner/driver, like performance vehicles, and this one has been fun. It scoots, it's peppy, it gets 24-26MPG all day. The vehicle has NEVER been tracked, the rear subframe has NO cracks evident and is ALWAYS inspected during maintenance intervals. I love that one can fit at least bodies in the trunk I've enjoyed the fact that the interior seats four, comfortably, in pinch. From the first day of ownership, have been collecting NEW parts such as hood insulation, BMW Roundel Hood Emblem, mirror glass (polarized) and mirror covers, side window stick on trim (to renew) with the intention of installing said items, once the front bumper, hood and new mirror covers had been painted/repainted...all of these items convey with sale of the vehicle.
The car presents well, receive compliments on it quite frequently It washes and waxes up well. Sure there are minor scratches/dings and such, to be expected of 12yo vehicle...remember this is USED VEHICLE!! I'm quite picky about aesthetics, and while the car could use maybe $800-$1200 worth of paintwork, just can't bring myself to do it as have good $6-$7K already wrapped up in parts since ownership. I have approximately $16 $17K into the vehicle in the last two years...so you're NOT going to talk me down on price, won't happen, I'm taking about $4K $5K loss on the car as it is, but drove it for two years...so it's wash.
Vehicle comes with two working keys, owners manual, spare tire, tools and jack...COMPLETE. Vehicle has CLEAR title, in hand...Bill of Sale will be provided, price will say whatever the hell you want it to say. ;^)
The price is FIRM.
It is what it is, you're going to pay premium for decent ZHP so please...I don't need PMs, suggesting have it priced too high. I rarely sell personal vehicle and generally, those who buy one from me tend to keep in touch...so far, I've had ZERO death threats. :^)
Shipping is available, via enclosed trailer for FEE it is NOT FREE, my rates are negotiable, depending on destination, time frame and if I'm already on scheduled transport run please inquire, delivery would be limited to the Mid-Atlantic states NJ/NY down to South Carolina, possibly Georgia/Florida.
