I think is was 20HP when it came out a few years ago. Now it is 35HP.

I have seen references in articles stating 20 or 35.

Here is one of the better write ups I have seen.

M Performance Package Upgrade on 2015 335i

I have the performance kit (MPPK) and love it. However, I would not do upgrades on a leased car.

I assume you have the standard sport suspension. You can upgrade to the M performance suspension option which I have on my car for a tighter ride.

Or go with aftermarket.

I would not worry about another credit check. Several checks in a week or two don't mean much. They assume you are shopping for a house or car.

Now a credit check every month, yeah that would hurt.

I don't think the dealer is offering the BMW warranty and maintenance. It is only offered to original owners unless they changed something. Do you know what they are offering?

I still don't get it. If the car is on a rack/lift, gravity causes gas to spill down, not up. So to me it does not matter if the tank is full or not. :dunno:

Sounds like you guys should have gotten cars with manual trannys if performance is paramount. You would have bypassed all the nanny modes.

So you only want to use 7 gears of the 8 speed tranny? Your fuel economy will suffer especially on the highway.

I think if you press and hold the volume knob for 10 seconds iDrive will reboot. It was that way on my 5 series so I assume it is the same.

If that does not work you need to take it in.

I can only speak to the MPPK.

Perhaps the best option available for the 435.

Off the mark throttle response, additional HP, and exhaust sound takes sport mode to a whole new level. :thumbup:

I would take it back and also ask to speak to the BMW NA rep.

There is something clearly defective and might need the entire steering rack replaced.

I would not live with it.
