Adam is correct but the performance package is offered on the 330 (I had an 03) the easiest way to tell oddly enough look at the seats if there relatively flat it doesn't but if there bolstered on the sides and front it does have the performance package otherwise run your vin through BMW that'll tell ya for sure

The ZHP (Performance Package) was offered in late '03 forward (sedan only), '04 in coupes/conv, and up until the end of the e46 ('06 coupes). It had several unique features: Alcantara suede 3-spoke steering wheel w/ M badge (tho many have been replaced with leather), black headliner (look up- if it's black, you have a ZHP), unique staggered 18" alloys (look at the photo of my car, you'll see them), "Q-bert" aluminum interior trim, unique "m" colors (again, see the photo of my car- Imola Red is unique to the ZHP and M3 e46's), unique front and rear airdams, etc. It was a $4000 option, so if you bought the car new- you'd KNOW if you had it! And that's just the stuff you can see... there's more info at the e46 Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_E46

The ZHP also features a more aggressive rear diff, a 6spd manual standard (otherwise unavailable on the E46 save for the M3), and stiffer suspension settings :)

THe 6-speed manual became standard on the 330i in '03, according the the e46 wiki.

zhp's have 235hp regardless whether it is an i or ci

actually the bolstered seats were an option for the sport package not the performance package alone. I have an 03 330Ci sport package and it has bolstered seats and most of the visual add ons for the performance package but mine is just a sport.
