E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Sprint Booster

Looking into buying a Sprint Booster.

Any thoughts? Seen some different reviews in the past. Understand that it wont add HP, but will improve throttle response.


Any links to where I can get one for a good price?

Definitely like sport mode, but that change shift pattern, sprint booster is more for throttle responsiveness.

I'm just afraid because a few boys said it messed up their sensor...

I use it with no issues!

My wife is not as enthused with this mod, since it is her daily driver I only activate it at times when I am driving it on the weekend.

I don't have it but I friend with an M6 does and he loves it. He's on the M6 board if you have questions.

Zerocks1 is his name (Alan).

Waste of money, IMO. It changes the throttle response curve. Even in Drive the curve can be twitchy. It will definitely change the 'feel' of the car. If that is worth the 2-300 bones to you, then by all means...

Have you tried it? I would not make a judgement unless you have.

From what I know it does enhance the "Blast" factor. Much cheaper than a custom tuning mod at $1-2K

I am not a fan. It turns your throttle into an off/on switch - exactly the opposite thing a pilot wants when driving the car at the limit and keeping it there with the throttle.

It's good for drag racing and heel-and-toe throttle blips maybe but counter productive for throttle steering the car. I never use the sport button for the same reason, it is basically a mild version of the Sprint Booster.

For the SMG, you would want to use the AUTO setup.

Thank you!
