While ordering, I thought I could always add the PPK later in December, but I ordered the "no lines" which means I don't have the high speed limiter
If not, I guess there is nothing I can do to make the car faster, while still preserving the warranty. Right? (I don't think Dinan will work out for me since it won't work with the warranty direct's extended warranty).
Option 840 (High Top Speed Limiter) on the F30 is just:
- remove the TOP speed limiter
- add Summer tires
So, there *shouldn't* (IMHO) be any real technical limitation to the PPK, rather a recommendation from BMW due to the higher capable speeds. I believe some folks had the e90 ppk installed without the 840 option (I also think 840 on an e90 added the extra oil cooler - correct me if I'm wrong).
In any case, we won't know until it's released. I know they said December, but my sources say don't bet on it until next year.
