Does my car have competition package via la carte?

so i just picked up an '11 e90 M3 with a build date of 3/25/2011 (was this pre-competition package option ??) and i dont see the competition package listed on the build sheet but it does have the dynamic damper control and 19'' wheels so i was wondering if this means it is also lowered 10mm?

No, March 2011 is full blown competition package availability. If your build sheet has no "ZCP" option then it is not a true competition package car. You sit 10mm higher, too.

oh sh*t man, civic edition. I'd sell it while the gettin's good. The non ZCP's have a higher rod bearing failure rate.

M3 Civic and rod bearing failure in the same post; this is going to be a good one.
