I dyno'd my 335i w/ the PPK & MPE, and netted 286hp/345lb-ft at the wheels. Granted there are variations depending on dyno type, weather conditions, etc. - but those are pretty strong numbers for a...

Have you considered the CF mirror caps? The BMW-made ones are very well made, and would look great with the grills & CF spoiler!

No manual in the 535i GT either, so no surprise there - particularly on a low volume niche vehicle.

A PPK at invoice price is around $785 IIRC, installed at the port/VPC... a great performance value available from the "factory".

A sport package on a 320i is $1,300, and is packaged similarly to what you got in the ZSP. The M Sport package available on the F30 is more similar to the e46 ZHP package, which was $3,900 from what...

If the gouges aren't too deep, Dr Color chip should do the trick. Might not be perfect, but it'll pass the eye test from a few feet away at the very least... worth a try for $50.

However anyone slices it, those are still pretty nice numbers... and beyond comparisons to other PPK cars, it does certainly seem more stout than stock N55 numbers.

I might get your suspension checked out to see if they left some shipping blocks in the springs. Feeling 'very dangerous', and having 'no resistance to hard turns' does not sound normal. I'd also...
