I think my car got caught in the middle of the performance power kit and the new M power kit that is now being heavily promoted with all of the other m sport options. Regardless, I have the M sport exhaust with the engraved tips, even though I think my build sheet didn't specify (option Z10 Performance Exhaust). Build sheet also had Performance Power Package (option Z3B). To me, it just seems a name change to M Sport Performance Power Kit as opposed to the old label of BMW Performance Power Kit. Engine bay is lacking badges at this time and I am researching that further. Not in the mood to get ripped off and pay for a VPC option that actually didn't get installed. Regardless, I love the sound of the M Sport exhaust over my prior performance exhaust. Car is brand new so I have not driven it hard yet and haven't even put it in sport or sport+ mode yet. I did notice a difference in my old car with power kit so I am expecting the same or a little better performance with this kit. If it is even there. Hahaha.
Not that is matters, but the stickers to my understanding go with the actual yet-to-be-release M-Performance Power Kit (PPK) which includes the intake silencer, engine cover with new badges, etc. It's outlined earlier in this thread.

I've also ordered the ZB3 option. I forget the exact name. It does deceptively have the word "Power" in it. It's just the exhaust and black grills. I hope you didn't think you took delivery of anything more than that. I say that because of the stickers comment, your second PPK, and your comment about lack of badges in the engine bay.

Hopefully, I just misread or interpreted you posts.
