Its great that they dropped the price! But I still think its pricey$$, considering there is no hardware purchase that is involved and the preproduction feature includes much more at the same price. I guess the only advantage against the other non-BMW aftermarket upgrade is the warranty is retained!!
My other question is....
What's the benefit of stage 2 with the "extra cooling", since there is no extra boost in the hp with it? I know that extra cooling minimizes power losses at higher/sustained RPM, so does that mean that stage 1 can be potentially harmful in the long run, if driven too hard?!?! Wonder how BMW will play this..
