I expect some folks will want to do Euro Del on these? Can that be done? I guess they can retrofit the performance options at the VPC?

It's pushing it... Factory vacation time approaching... Folks who have already drafted their lease contracts won't have the benefit of residualizing the extra amount...

I want to know what's in the "power kit"? Just software, or what?

So this begs the question, which engine is going to be used, the N54 or the N55?

Since the 335is uses the N54 engine and has the exact same power boost, is BMW fitting these Limited Performance Edition 335i Sedans with the same N54 engine as the 335is?

BMW also fits an extra radiator in the left front air intake on the 335is to help cool the higher output engine, is this extra radiator also going to be included on the LPE 335i Sedans?

At this price I'm also assuming that the LPE 335i Sedans won't get the same exhaust or rear diffuser found on the 335is.

It's just software, grills and badges. On the N55 motor. Simple clean and affordable !!!!!

I was told by my dealer that is a factory install and not a port install... Any truth to that? My 335xi is being transported to the ship for exit, so i missed that boat :(

Jon,

Thank you. Even though my car is being loaded onto the ship in the near future, I can still make arrangements to get the performance package?

Thanks again

<dumb newb-like question>
How do both transmissions have the same HP increase, but the auto has nearly double the torque increase?

Any idea when it will be available at the dealers? Would it be the same price of $550?

Thanks

Totally chomping at the bit to get this port-installed. If port-installed, i wonder if we still get the badging?

I hope they release some more details soon about this!
