Performance Power Kit

I bought from BMW of Morristown the BMW performance Power Kit part #11122183957. I was able to snag it for 600 and the install cost me an hour of labor.

The results? The exhaust sounds a lil more burly at idle, throttle response is crisper and no turbo lag at all.

Well worth the money especially that I was able to get one from inventory before BMW jacked up the price to 1500

That extra 40HP and 30 ft-lbs of torque can definitely be felt

Who did you speak with there? They said $600 was well under what they get it for.

I got it right before the prices went up. There was only one left on eBay for sale at that price. It is now sold at $1400

1.Yes it is a retrofit of the M package tuning
2.I got it right before the price went up there was one left listed at 600 when I bought it on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/160534280808...84.m1497.l2649
3.Full BMW warranty. The retrofit was performed at the dealership and does not affect any warranty you have because it is made and approved by BMW
4.No issues at all, increased power and torque can definitely be felt and I don't see any increase in fuel consumption.

X6 with inline-6 turbo N54, has more options for tuning.

younger crowds and crazier about tuning.
