Where is the graph for the n54 with PPK?

I only see data for the n54 older and newer model and the n55

You can be denied coverage if an accident happens its called material misrepresentation.
Yup

You're even supposed to inform them if you change from run-flats to normal tyres, whether they charge is down to them. If you don't then you can essentially have your insurance voided which obviously has a range of consequences depending on the situation occurring.

Some of the rules about mods are daft but them's the rules

I would do it for the stickers only. Lol.
Seriously though on the x drive this is pretty cool.

The enhanced sound, factory warranty, stickers and the 35-70 0.5s drop is exactly in the space where daily drivers like myself will see increased benefit. The mpg remains the same too.

Did I mention the stickers

I am going to tell my daughter that daddy is getting stickers, the smile on her face is worth more than 1100

Where are you seeing that some sort of "M performance" mode will be added to the drive modes? I am not seeing that.

I agree with you on second point - throttle calibration will make a huge difference in just how the car feels and pulls from a standstill. Smoother, more responsive.

I wouldn't hold out for that bro... this is your "M335i". It's the same engine tune as the N55HP (version in the 640, M135i, M235i). I honestly think 1000-1300 for parts and install is not bad at all to get 20/30 gains (likely more) and the intake stuff described in the detail.

It's a pretty awkward website, you have to scroll through a couple pictures. It's there in green, here's the link.
I only see n54is, n55, early n54 late n54. Green is n54is which has up to 370lb/tq iirc

But no warranty and they don't reprogram anything for fuel efficiency or the 4 drive modes. The PPK integrates the power increase with the car's features.

This worries me. It won't be the full warranty? What about those of us who haven't taken delivery yet?

I think it's great that BMW is offering a tune that preserves the warranty. Forget the engine cover, the stickers (), whatever else. If I had an F30 335 I'd pay this money just for the tune with warranty preservation. A bargain? Well no, until your engine damage claim gets denied because of your aftermarket tune. A good friend of mine owns a BMW shop and he shared that with modern BMWs it is getting harder and harder to hide evidence of an aftermarket tune even after removal.

In terms of just making this standard equipment, let's face it - BMW is tapping into a crowd that is going to upgrade no matter what the car comes with, and is likely going to get a bunch of owners who would have not otherwise considered a tune. So roll with it. For those who aren't looking for the most extreme or least expensive tune, this is pretty sweet.
