This 2005 BMW 330Ci, finished in Mystic Blue over grey Montana leather, features the coveted ZHP package offered by BMW from 2003 to 2006. This package includes factory performance enhancements, a body kit, and unique interior details. Additional features include optional navigation, the Harman Kardon Hi-Fi Sound System, and more. This 330Ci convertible is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Canada showing just over 98k miles on the odometer. 

Finished in Mystic Blue (A07) with a black convertible soft top, this BMW features ZHP-specific bumpers, side skirts, and high gloss satin chrome trim, along with dual exhaust tips, fog lamps, LED taillights, and optional white direction indicator lights. It rides on 18” M Double Spoke 135 alloy wheels wrapped in General G-Max tires showing date codes from 2017. The seller notes that a very small part of the rear bumper’s clear coat is cracking, some rock chips can be seen on the hood and fenders, and a few paint scratches are present. The front bumper was recently refinished and the exterior underwent paint correction. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin is upholstered in gray Montana leather with ZHP-specific Aluminum Black Cube trim, an Anthracite headliner, a perforated leather-wrapped multifunction M-Sport steering wheel, and orange instrument needles instead of the standard white color. Other options include power-adjustable and heated sport seats with lumbar support, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rain sensor, and a Harmon-Kardon Hi-Fi Sound System. The seller reports some minor wear on soft-touch plastic and high-touch areas, as well as that the mirror auto-dimming function has failed, leaving a brown tint. 

Powered by a 3.0-liter M54 inline six-cylinder engine featuring double-VANOS variable valve timing, more aggressive camshafts, and ECU tuning included with the ZHP package, the 330Ci sends up to 235 HP and 222 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels, an increase of 10 HP and 8 lb.-ft of torque over the standard 330Ci, by way of a 5-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, the redline has been increased from 6,500 to 6,800, and a sport-tuned suspension with upgraded shocks, springs, lower control arms, and anti-roll bars is also included, along with a unique lightweight underbody cross brace and a linear steering rack with a stiffer torsion bar. The seller notes recent maintenance to include new Brembo pads and rotors, new spark plugs, and a new fuel filter, all done within the last 200 miles. 

This sale will include the owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, a car cover, some documentation, and a clean title.


The seller would like you to know: “The E46 is one of the best 3 Series’ of all time! This stunning ZHP is an incredible example and is of the highest spec possible. The import process is quite simple- I will be more than happy to assist with any shipping/import questions. Bid with confidence!

    I forgot to mention this- because this is a ZHP, (US car), registration is extremely simple in any state. Even during import, there are zero hassles. You are simply bringing it back to its home country!

    So clean and rare ZHP

  • Porsche991964 (seller) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Hello everyone, welcome to the auction of my 2005 ZHP! Over the next coming days, I will be more than happy to help in regard to any questions that you may have.
    Shipping/importing a Canadian car turns many bidders away from purchasing a vehicle, as it is very difficult to find information online. I completely understand and sympathize with this, however, it is a far easier process than it is made to be!

    These are the approximate numbers and fees that you will need to pay.

    - Shipping: Low 4 figures depending on state, this will be similar regardless to if the car was in the US or not

    - Entry Fee: Low 3 figures

    - MPF (Merchandise Processing Fee): 0.03464% of the Purchase Price

    - Customs Bond: Mid 3 figures

    - Duties: 2.5% of Purchase Price

    And... that's it! I have access to incredible brokers and shipping companies which will make this process extremely easy and stress free. I will also be there at every step of the way on my end to get this car over smoothly. This is one incredible car, in an incredible spec. I'm very excited for it to go to a good home! Happy bidding.
