I just remembered:

When I turned in my car at LogInOut at the Munich Airport on 5/25 I met a couple from Chicago turning in an M3 that were also on our flight. She told me she worked for BMW and gave me a card which showed her title as "Accessories Sales manager, Central Region" for BMW NA in Schaumburg, IL. She mentioned that some new performance product would be coming out "in a couple of months". This must be it and probably has nothing to do with an existing BMW Performance product.

I'm going to e-mail her for some details and hopefully she'll reply tomorrow morning.

I just heard from my dealer as I had placed a deposit for the software only upgrade. We have been waiting a week or two now and here is what he just received from BMW:

"The Stage 1 Power Kit (software only) will be available in mid-August. Note: A special introductory price will be offered for the Stage 1 kit when it first becomes available. Keep an eye out for an Aftersales bulletin within the next week or two announcing pricing details."

When I hear more, I'll let others know.

Rudyv1 is reporting a price of ~$1,200? How does one dealer have a price and the other have a bulletin saying pricing won't be released for a few weeks?

A fair question on pricing. See attached link that was posted on June 16...

Thanks, I hadn't seen that link. Looks like it's consistent with rudyv1's report on pricing.

Although I think we all suspected that the retro-fit was going to be more than the $550 figure in for the option when new in the OP, I was (perhaps foolishly) hoping for something a little cheaper than this.

I have a couple questions: Why does the manual get a lower bump in tourque (is there a concern that it can't handle the added oomph of 32 more lb ft)?

Also, I'd be interested in hearing from people with a 335is or the original BMW Performance Power Kit about what the gains really feel like. By my math this is only ~7% bump in power. Can you really feel a difference?

Just noticed that both posts are from Canadian dealers. This package isn't on my local dealer's websites, and nothing on BMWusa website. Wonder if there'll be a difference in Canadian v. US pricing (exchange rate is pretty close to 1 to 1 these days, right?)

We get wildly bent over in Canada so even though the currency exchange is relatively flat I'd guess our pricing will be at minimum 20% premium over US pricing.

Question E92 too?

Sorry if this has already been answered before here but do we know if E92 (coupe) also ends production this fall and whether this upgrade is available for it too as an option? Thanks.

The E92 and E93 continues for another year, as MY 2012 cars. Until June 2012.
