New daily driver

Have been through 2 Elises, and don't have one right now, but I bought a new daily to get me to class and back everyday and thought I would share. Don't have the best of pictures of it right now, but here are 2 I took the other day. 2003 330i ZHP 6 Speed. Loving it so far. It would be my 3rd E46. Hope to be in another Lotus sometime in the not so distant future! But made some major life changes, so had to make vehicle changes!

The only BMW I've owned is a 2016 S1000RR. I saw 130mph on the way to work this morning. Just putting around.

Nice car. In my opinion, the E46 was the pinnacle of BMW's 3 series. It has been downhill since then.

I miss the one I had, a 2001 325i.

Yeah, easily up to 130 on that thing without even trying.

I'd agree.

Cool. Just finishing up on mine. I miss the Lotus but these are a blast in straight or corners especially with 1050WHP and 335 stickies!

ZHPs are a good buy, as they hold value if clean.

While I learnt my BMW lesson the hard way with an E39 M5 (and it was a good one at that!) I still appreciate that era of BMWs very much.

2016 AMG GT-S
2012 Caterham R400 (sold)
2010 Chrome Orange Evora (Sold )
2005 ST Elise (sold)
2002 MB G500 lifted etc.
2003 Cooper S (track)
we'll see what Lotus comes up with next...

Very nice, my DD right now is also an E46 (wagon). I'll be keeping it until my Tesla Model 3 gets here... and will probably be sad to see it go. But we have 6 vehicles right now and it would be pretty ridiculous to keep it around.
