Did you ask him if the Performance parts will be available in the future to spec on a new vehicle as options when you configure your car as opposed to aftermarket only?

Surprisingly good news on the intake front ! I suppose they will release it in a few months...this saves me from doing a Mr.5 intake and Sticking with a drop-in filter until that comes...

You can order them for Europe at any time...I think that compared to the other parts like LSD and Intake you have a great option to pursue.

what about finally having an option to order a non M-car with Michelin PS2s or Pilot Sport Cup tires??

the tires make such a huge difference!

If you want performance brakes on your 335 then order them. You'll be going with a slightly smaller rotor but you'll get the bling bling bannana calipers

vgame64, when you discussed the Power kit/335is with Eric he mentioned the hardware was the same but the software allowing the overboost was different. He only mentioned the manual transmission cars with the flywheel/torque issues. Any talk of the steptronic transmission cars being able to get the updated overboost software?

I didn't ask that. I didn't see that question so I assumed it came with an SSK. I will ask him and post the response when I get it.
