All M3s have M Dynamic Mode for DSC. ZCP merely has a different program that is less intrusive. As for the steering maps - they are identical for ZCP and non-ZCP cars.

Sorry mate - if you state facts you need to be sure they are correct.

"Dynamic Steering ZCP specific" - are you making this up or what?!!

Plus, can I refer you to this:

Sorry if I sound harsh but I think people should post opinion or fact. If you claim it is fact get it right.

So much BS sometimes - people really show themselves up as ignorant.

I am new here - my E92 has less than 300 miles on the clock. This is a great place to share info, learn some stuff, make friends and source parts. It's like a computer tho. Put shit in get shit out. Opinions are fine - we all know what they are worth. But inaccurate info purported as fact is actually quite damaging.

Not picking on anyone in particular - just frustrated with in accuracies and mis-guided posts.

Can't think of an example of that happening in the past. I suppose it's possible.

^^ Why would BMW do that though? Would decrease the value of their ZCP option.

I hear you, but the "performance reflash" option comes to mind for the N55. At one point it was exclusive to the performance kit in the N54, then a $2000 option, and now a $500 option for the N55 IIRC. So I wouldn't rule it out.

Something tells me an aftermarket company would crack and redistribute this code before BMW would offer it as a purchasable upgrade.

Besides the market for a "slightly less intrusive" traction control system is very small. M3 buyers (opinion coming...) tend to be in two camps. They are either track junkies who want as many nannies off as possible, or they are "status symbol" owners who probably ned as many nannies as they can get for the few times they decide to test out what the car is capable of so they don't increase the chance of wrecking their car.

There are a few people who float in the middle and would like the little extra room to play. But most people who avoid the ZCP package either love the car the way it is (Camp Status) or plan their own series of modifications to have fun with the car (Camp Junkie). And those in the middle probably had enough foresight at purchase to get the ZCP package and be done with it.

I didn't order the Comp Pkge because I didn't care for the ZCP wheels or EDC.

I plan on putting coilovers after the warranty is done so the EDC would've been more a pain to deal with. Plus struts with EDC cost much more than w/o EDC so it definitely helps financially.

The 220M forged wheels complement the car so well that I could not pass it up for the ZCP.

ZCP gives you the following:

1) 10mm drop
2) 359M Wheels
3) Electronic Damping Control (EDC) Sport+ mode is now Dynamic (Non-ZCP has a Static map for Sport+)
3) Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) (Slightly Tweaked)


If you are going to track the car, probably a good buy. Otherwise the car is exactly the same.

Now, in retrospect - if I could have gotten comp wheels in black right out of the gate, I may have gotten ZCP.
