Most of the tunes on the market are offering almost triple the gains that BMW powerkit is offering.
I am going to wait and see what the kit offers and pricing. I had a JCW kit on my Mini and it was perfect. No issues, no worrying when bringing the car in for service, no throwing codes.

Yes, they are priced out of their minds ( as always w/ German cars ) but I am not looking for the ultimate in power ( have a sports car for summer driving to fill need for speed). If its just power at high throttle they can keep it, like you said.
