I forgot to add to the list that they replaced the spark plugs as well.
Re: Power kit - let me know when you want to pull the trigger, there is a fellow member on here who gets great discounts at BMW T&C. He quoted me a price I will double check and get back to you. Also, the kit for a steptronic adds in excess of 30hp/lbs torque. You will basically convert your car into a 335is minus the Performance exhaust (if I would buy a car, the 335is would be on my list). Good luck with the maintenance and I'll get back to you on the discounted pricing for the Power Kit.

I'm currently getting a little bit of throttle lag in my car (barely noticeable) but I was told after my spark plugs are replaced this will disappear. I've also been looking at the idea of adding the BMW Performance kit to the car (good for about 20whp?) and adds a stronger OEM cooling system. Not sold on the cost however (well over 2 grand).
I can also second your feelings on the 'honda tune ups'. Back in the day I used to drive a civic sedan and I do vividly recall driving it after a full tuneup/fluid change it was like the car was on race gas haha.
