Could always upload it to your online place of choice and link it if all else fails.

How is this cheaper than the PPK for the E90?

I'm still incredulous...and even if the dealer has it, where is it shipping from?

I'm going in on Monday and have already asked my CA to check with parts on this...tunes are downloaded from BMW AG directly, so it can be done while my car is there.

I'll have them install plaques and sell the stickers to someone on the boards if this is for real...

CA just wrote. Not in yet but parts will call BMW again on Monday to verify.

She recommended I hold off and let them sort out bugs anyway, lol!

Sounds about right. It's still not available online. I have a feeling we'll know via these forums faster than 99% of CAs.

It's the PPK available for the 2013 335xi sedan also?

Somehow get the feeling the dealer is going to try to install the 2013 335i coupe's PPK to the sedan.

Just drove my car with the power kit. Must say it's a pretty good feeling off the line and on the expressway 50mph and beyond. You can feel it really move.

How about posting a picture of your engine bay with the M Performance PPK plaque showing, so we can all finally rest assured that you indeed have the M PPK?

Garage List
2005 BMW M3  [5.00]
2012 BMW 335i  [4.50]
2008 BMW X5 35d  [5.00]
1991 BMW Z1  [5.00]
All,

I recently drove the M135i. It is an amazing machine. Clearly it has the same engine and gearbox as the 335i, however the software (together with some modest hardware changes and less weight) makes it far more fun to drive! It sounds awasome, shifts perfect and seems to be quite quicker in the first 100 meters.

My question:
Does anyone know if, after installing the M Performance Power Kit, the car software of the 335i is comparable to the M135i? Will in (sport mode) the character of the 335i be comparable to its smaller brother? Clearly it will have a bit more power, but will the character of the drivetrain (gas response, (lower) gear selection, shifting, etc) change?
Does anyone already have installed the M Performance Power Kit on the 335i?

Many thanks!
