Would love to hear your thoughts on the GSR tune. I am definitely considering it myself, though a bit worried about warranty if something happens.

I would definitely recommend to go with GSR. First of all, Matt and Bobby are really professional and always ready to answer all your questions. Second, they can tune your car for your taste, depends on where you want to have the pick of the torque, if you are taking your car to the track or it is just your daily car. If you are planning to get this tune, I would recommend you to change your spark plugs to the M3/M4 spark plugs. I personally really like this tune. My car now has plenty of power (roughly 265-270 hp on the wheels with 91 gas) When it is cold outside, feels like it is even more. Transmission shifts much smother and the engine overall works smoother too. For me it feels like BMW should sell their N20 engines this way from the factory. After I installed this tune, I had two visits to the dealer to change the oil and no problem so far. As you probably know that for the past couple of months there were a lot of cars that were flagged at dealers for different kinds of mods, even aftermarket wheels. I recommend you to find a service advisor who you can trust. I spoke with my adviser about this tune when I had my oil change last time, he said that the mechanic that works with him didn't detect anything on the computer. So I would highly recommend to go with GSR if you want to get more power and have your car to work smooth.

How is it that you buy the car as sport package and it didnt come with M front and rear bumper or steering wheel? Now you spend more money just to make it look like one. Looks good with the 437 tho

Sport Line and M-Sport are two different things...

I couldn't buy a car with M-sport package when I was choosing my new car. I did't want to order and wait longer, plus this dealership made a really good deal on this car for me. It has all the options I wanted. So I decided that I can upgrade the bodykit later if I want. Comparing the price for this car and the M-sport with similar options, my car is still cheaper, even after installing the body kit.

It is different, but depends on what options do you have. My car has M-sport suspension and automatic transmission. After installing the new body kit and the steering wheel, the only difference now between Sport package and M-sport on my car is a shadow line.

Wow you did a lot of work. Who is your service advisor and which dealership do you go to? Crevier BMW was recently bought by Penske and they're not very friendly about mods anymore.
