Photo shoot -- Imola Red 330 ZHP

I haven't been spending as much time lately on E90post because I've been busy with the new toy. Not sure this is the appropriate forum, but hope it's OK.

This photo shoot was done in San Diego. A local photographer, Casey Withers, of C. Withers Media, did the photo work. This is the second shoot he's done for me. If you're interested in seeing his first photo shoot, of my E92 335, you can click the link in my signature. Withers does top-notch work.

Car is a 2005 E46 330 ZHP. Unlike my other cars, the ZHP will remain bone stock (with the exception of the OEM M3 mirrors that I am getting). I'll be a proud member of the ZHP BSC (bone stock club).


EXTERIOR:

* OEM IMOLA RED (IMOLAROT) PAINT
* OEM MIRRORS (BUT OEM M3 MIRRORS ARE COMING)
* OEM LIP TRUNK SPOILER
* OEM M-TECH II AERODYNAMIC BODY KIT
* OEM KIDNEY GRILLS
* SOLAR GARD TINT (15%)

SUSPENSION / HANDLING / BRAKES / WHEELS:

* OEM SUSPENSION
* BMW STYLE 135M WHEELS 18 X 8.5 (REAR) AND 18 X 8 (FRONT)
* FALKEN FK-452 TIRES 255/35-18 (REAR) AND 225/40-18 (FRONT)
* OEM BRAKES

ENGINE / EXHAUST:

* OEM -- NO ENGINE WORK
* CLUTCH-DELAY VALVE REMOVAL (IMMINENT)
* OEM EXHAUST

INTERIOR / LIGHTING:

* NATURAL BROWN MONTANA LEATHER SEATS
* OEM NAVIGATION
* BLACK CUBE INTERIOR TRIM
* OEM M PERFORATED LEATHER STEERING WHEEL
* OEM ZHP M SHIFT KNOB
* HARDWIRED V1

Actually, this bridge is near the 8/5 freeways. It's Pacific Highway -- near Fiesta Island.

great looking car. iv never seen the ZHP with that interior or with that steering wheel. didnt all ZHPs come with the alcantara wheel?

the M-sports should have gotten the same performance treatment that the ZHP did. what a shame.
