M Performance Parts installed at Port

hey guys, were any of you in Canada able to get M Perf. Parts with your order and have them installed at port prior to getting to the dealer?

My dealer is saying that they would buy the parts through their parts dept. and charge me labor on my new order but I read on the M Perf. builiten that you could get them added at time of order and installed a the port?

thanks

Unfortunately when I asked my dealer about the M Performance Exhaust, they said it will have to be installed at the dealership.

ya, i think your right but i dont understand why USA orders can do this but not Canada. I dont want to dealer installing and charging labor. Plus i have more faith in the Port install vs dealer.

BMWUSA owns and operates their own VDCs. They have their own techs and parts supplies from BMWAG. That is why they can repairs and install parts at the port, and very well I may add.

Autoport in Halifax is a separate company that charges BMWCA to offload and transfer cars. I would not want someone working on my new bimmer who is not properly qualified.

I want to order the M Performance Package but I think the dealer is trying to give me a run for my money 2850.00 for a lip kit package which doesn't including anything carbon fibre is a little high for me. What do you guys think?

get the kit from Maranello BMW, ask for Mike for the maxbimmer price. Should be cheaper, if not, then find out from the States prices and compare and you can decide.

My PPK 2 is getting installed at the dealer. I am getting nervous since this is the 2nd day they have the car. Issues with installing the software.

Confused a bit by all this. I'm taking delivery shortly of a new 335i with M-Performance Packages 1 and 2 that was ordered this way from the factory. Can someone confirm for MPP 2 if the programing and M-exhaust will be: (1) added at the factory (2) installed at Port of Halifax (3) or done at the dealer.

Also ... Is here a simple way to independently confirm this is all fully installed on delivery?

I would get in touch with your dealer - he would likely know best. History on this forum has shown that most cars are arriving without mppk2 installed - thus need to be done at the dealer (of course this should be at no extra charge). This may be due to the new 2014 (?) MPPK software. This may change however and get done at port eventually. If it is not installed just make sure your dealer has the parts in stock or on order so you don't have to wait too long.

Will do. Is there anything I should look for on the car under the hood or exhaust to make sure this has been done.

just noticed this post.... if I contact Mike and ask him for maxbimmer price, he should be able to give me good price on M Sport Aerodymanic Kit(Kit includes front bumper, rear bumper, diffusor, rocker panels, air ducts, grills, and all required installation components)? getbmwparts has it for $1750

You will have to call to find out as he will probably need to confirm based on your vin # (just to double check).

As far as I know, getbmwparts no longer ship to Canada directly, therefore, you will have to do this by ship to US postal box and pick it up over the border and pay all relevant taxes/duties when coming back. Do factor in those mentioned items plus FX premium on your credit card + gas.

the UPS store across the border for me is about 45 min away, the drive isn't so bad....

but I am a bit worried about the taxes/duties

I can confirm the m perf pack 2 is not installed at the dealer. Mine came off the truck at the deAlership with the kit installed. From what I have found out it is installed in Halifax.

You should have m perf exhaust, an m performance engine cover and an m performance intake that has a m performance power kit logo. I will post pics of mine tomorrow.

Looks like mine also came it with it already installed .. Not sure if it was done at Halifax port or factory, but definitely not by the dealer.
