How would this work in conjunction w/ the JB tune? If the Stage 1 tune adds 50 HP, would you end up at 350HP either way or would you get 326+50 = 376?

Curious if the JB tune would over ride this PPK tune.

Someone is going to have to guinea pig that one, no way to know until they test it out..Could have issues or problems, of just very little difference in power between the initial kit now and adding it to the PPK.

Probably just very little difference. The PPK probably just slightly adjusts the turbo/fuel/timing. Then the JB would just slightly adjust above those numbers.

As far as I know, they're both 'tunes' so you wouldn't be able to run them together and expect an additive increase. It's more like each is overriding the stock tune and would cancel the other out.

yes one would cancel out the other...it's a waste to get the PPK and then add the BMS on top of it.

If it's just the PPK + Grilles, than that makes sense...the exhaust is probably another $1300...

I asked my CA to add this package with the understanding that it includes the exhaust and the black grills in addition to the PPK.

He said he has placed the order with the VPC. I will let everyone know what he hears back from them.

BTW - My car is due to arrive at the VPC in California on the 25th.

Ok, so now I'm really confused and frustrated and need everyone's help.

Just got off the phone with my CA and he has spoken with the folks at the VPC in California. According to the person he spoke with at the VPC, the Z3B package only includes the exhaust and the black grills. It does NOT include the PPK. Additionally, the VPC indicated that there currently is no PPK available for our F30 335's. He said according to the VPC I can't order the PPK because it isn't available.

From those comments, it seems, anyone that has a car coming through California and has added package Z3B, the VPC will only be installing the exhaust and black grills. You won't be getting the PPK installed.

I thought that the PPK was supposed to be available from 11/2012? How can the folks that are supposed to be the ones installing it, not know about it?

What to do now?

How do I order the PPK and insure it gets installed. At this point I don't care if it comes with the exhaust or grills. I would be happy just to get the PPK!

I need a PPK part number or something to point them to that shows that the PPK is available.

My CA added to PPK to my car for a VPC install. My car will be at the Oxnard, CA (Port Hueneme) VPC scheduled 11/21/12. I guess we'll know for certain whether the PPK is available and is what included with it.

How do you know for sure that it isn't available? Do you have a source for the status?

On this thread, we have seemingly received conflicting information from "Parts HQ" and VPC staff. I'm just trying to figure out what the real answer is.

Sounds like the person we need to get in touch with is Eric Riehle, BMW M Performance Parts Manager. Anyone have his contact information?

Those are the folks my CA talked to today that said there isn't a PPK available for our cars yet. For our sake, hope the person he talked to was uninformed...
