I got the MPPK installed at the port and the rocker stickers are just the 'M Performance' letters, not the full black sticker in the picture above. I think that one is like $250 for pair. Ridiculous....

The BMW MPPK is fully supported and warranted by BMW. There won't be an issue at lease turn in.

I leased a 335xi and have the MPPK as well. It was installed at the 'port' (Vehicle Processing Center), so the cost was residualized just like any other option. I would not have paid for this out of...

If you are leasing a 2014, all lease support will be gone. Better off buying the vehicle because the residual is going to be terrible. It may even offset any savings you get as a result of them being...

My '14 335xi with MPPK has been solid over the first 7,500 miles. No dealer visits other than scheduled maintenance. The only blemish is occasional failure of the driver assist cameras last winter....

And for people leasing, the 5 year term makes no sense. Taking the $1250 and tucking it into a savings account to use on tires, rims, etc. is a far better policy in my opinion. Good chance you have...

I think you'll find that most people here would say that you don't get much for the money. Very expensive phone mount.

I found out the hard way that Rain-X may trigger your low fluid warning. Confirmed by the dealer and others 'festers. Had to blow through a whole tank of the stuff to stop it.

Also note that this may be applicable as long as you don't go more than 6 months between BMWs. I got in under the wire and they credited my subsequent lease account for the $350.
