Out in the midwest where I go to school, you don't witness the greatest builds on a day to day basis, that is unless you're me and happen to be neighbors with Cole, the owner of this well-done ZHP 330i. I guess the fashion in which I met Cole is just beyond coincidence. For the longest time, I have been toying with the idea of featuring unique builds on my site, but never got the chance to; that is, until today. At first glance, what initially looks like an ordinary BMW actually boasts an extensive build list that can only be described as tastefully done, with a right amount of OEM subtleness. This is how it's done kids. Thanks to BC Racing NA, Cole's spacecraft sits centimeters from the ground, nearly laying frame on a daily driver that bears a commute to and from class each day. Cole also drifts on occasion. His straight-piped muffler delete greets neighbors each morning (This thing welcomes all sorts of mixed attention in an otherwise tame neighborhood). It's only fair to see this thing in person to understand the type of character this build possesses.
Prior to our little shoot, Cole took us to wash our cars. Nothing beats OEM paint like Cole's 330i, unless you drive a black FR-S everyday. The differences in the cleanliness of our cars is astonishing. Oh well.
