Well, no, my 335 was 36.5 with ZSP. Let's say ZHP / M-sport is 2k more, and the ECU flash another 1k. That is under 40k.

To be fair, if one includes M-wheels and better tires, brakes, a LSD, etc., the package is likely over 5k, and I got mine via ED, but still we are talking under 50k for a high performance 335 stateside delivery.

I agree that if said dream 335 was priced anywhere close to the M3 then it would be a non-issue.

Why wouod it kill M3 sales...? It's still a non-M

BMW is a business. Someone who already has a 335 isn't going out an buying an M3 tomorrow. So how can BMW get more money out of those who already have 335s??...aftermarket performance upgrades. If not they are just leaving potential profit on the table for someone else to scoop up (which they are doing now). The few people who do decide to go 335 instaed of M3, BMW doesn't care, they still are buying a BMW product and now they will be buying upgrades, accessories, parts etc..as well, where there is even more profit margin. BMW wins twice. I doubt that these upgrades are going to sway someone who wants an M3. Besides you could go out and buy a Ford Focus or soon (BMW 135) and mod it to death to make it race worthy...Still isn't an M3.

well, nuthing against U, dude, but I've seen too much of this crap on forums. All of them starts like

My friend working for BMW/brother-in-law's cousin who is a BMW SA/neighbour's nephew who went to service his car/etc. heard/saw/noticed/found out there is some performance upgrade for 335i coming from BMW directly and it is in the new BMW catalogue and he/she/it will scan it and I'll post it/will bring it to me and I'll scan it and post it tonight/tomorrow/soon.
(underscore/mark what applies)

Getting tired of it, really, 'cuz all of these threads end up the same way - no info no facts nuthing, not today, not tonight, not tomorrow - never. Sorry, but that's what I call SPAM!!!

I know the next petition is useless, but please:
DON'T POST ANY BMW PERFORMANCE SPAM UNTIL YOU GET THE PROOF IN YOUR HAND OR COMPUTER!!!

I know it wasn't $5K b/c he was talkin about how it may cut the legs out from under the Procede sales. That's originally why I mentioned this.
I'd be jumping up and down if this happened but....

Selling a software reflash for 500 bucks won't really net them much in the way of profits... unless this car is so over engineered that the extra drivetrain stress isn't even felt.

Called DINAN today and within a few weeks, they will have completed testing on the FLASH for the 335. It will be avail through Dinan authorized centers (of which many are BMW dealers). Horsepower will not be 90, about 1/2 of that from what I can gather. They have quite a bit avail for the car now, see their website, but this is first electrical engine mod.

sorry that i did not see this a while back bmw does not have softwear as far as i know for the 335i i just went to school for a update and there was no talk of it. But i did over hear that the 335i was putting down mid 300hp and they were detuning them at the bmw plant in N.C.

P.S when our FSC comes in next week i will ask him he will know for shure.
