Don't know anyone that has had a reflash by their dealer to is specs. (even with a 335is which produces LESS power). I doubt it would be allowed if it was at all possible.

Thanks for the replies. It is a bit of a polarizing colour, but I do like it myself more because it is a little unusual. I agree it does look brilliant with the red.

Does it make much difference on the IS as to whether you stomp the throttle at the light or use LC considering the extra torque we have?

I think the LCI might come out at the END of 2011 for 2012 release. So these might be some early models they are testing?

I am not thinking they will do an M.
