    BMW M - Performance Pack for all models ?

    According to a rumor we just got in, BMW M GmbH plans to offer Performance Packs for ALL available, with the exception of the M6/M5 and new models, all of them including a HP jump.

    X5/X6 M = 600 HP

    M3 = 440-450 HP

    new M5 = 610-615 HP 

    Again: just a rumor, take it with a grain of salt.

    A retrofit will very likely NOT be possible.

    Well the Peformance pack on the 135i is retrofittable, so I don't see why they would change that unless there are changes to the internals of the engine, in which case it would be too expensive to retrofit.

    You know this car, do you ? Smiley

    M3 V8 modded engine (4.4 l, 450 HP). So where's the problem ?!

    Like I said, retrofit very unlikely.

    Christian,

    I know about M3 GTS which has an increased V8 (4.4) with at least 450 hp. BUT this car wears 110.000 Euro price tag incl. VAT in  Germany.

    So I don't think that Performance Package option for regular M3 would include this 4.4 engine.

    If it will, then this would be awesome news.

    I could do an engine swap

    then you might as well swap the 600hp engine Smiley

    1. who said that it will get 450 HP ? Smiley

    2. the GTS is that expensive because it has other features too, not only the modded engine

    3. like I said in the first post: still a rumor, it remains to be seen

    4. I doubt that BMW developed the 4.4 l V8 with 450 HP for the GTS only

    Personally, I get the feeling that BMW started to learn from Porsche how to make extra money. Smiley

    Exactly...


    Re: BMW M - Performance Pack for all models ?

    Hi,

    my guess would be an upgraded exhaust system ... like the Akrapovic system, that should be good for approx. 15 HP and a bit of mid-torque.

    Cheers

    Re: BMW M - Performance Pack for all models ?

    New German M3 Price List(from March 2010) features optional Competition Package-code ZCP.

    Cost is €4300 in Germany with Mwst. and package features:

    -new wheels 9x19 fronts and 10x19 rears with normal size tires

    -10mm lower chassis with EDC and revised Sport programm

     

    That is IT. NO engine upgrade what so ever. BMW M claim that CP equiped M3 is about 0.8s faster on the Hockenheima and around 4s faster on the Ring.

    I intend to order an X6M at the end of March. Do think that the pack is then available?

    This is "old" news, the Competition Package is already well known for two weeks now, BMW just released the new price list two days ago. Smiley This is NOT the power upgrade I was talking about.

    The engine upgrade will be part of a Performance Pack which also includes a different throttle/DSC mapping. Introduction will be some time after the GTS sells out (right now it seems that the GTS is selling pretty well).

    They're working on it, this doesn't mean it is 100%. Smiley

    No. According to the rumors, the power upgrade will not be available before the X6 LCI. Earliest. Maybe BMW also just wants to see how the new Cayenne Turbo is doing. Smiley
