435i + 35hp fuel gas consumption M performance kit

Hi I can't find the fuel consumption spec for the 435i with the added 35hp. Does the fuel consumption change from stock by adding the M performance package.

I've asked a couple sales men at the dealership and they aren't sure. They told me they asked their product specialist and they say the chip in the engine is micro tuned and the gas consumption is practically the same as the stock 435i. Does anyone think this sounds reasonable. I wouldn't add this on if it guzzled like crazy and gas prices continue to go up for the summer. I just like the sound of the exhaust better than stock.

Thanks.

I have it on my 435i and as long as I keep my foot out of it, my mileage is about the same as before the MPK. Just got back from a long road trip and was getting over 30 mpg traveling most of the time about 80 mph. After 410 miles I arrived home and I still had 110 more miles to go until empty. Not bad for over 300 hp car.

31mpg @ 78-83mph for 340 miles right out of the PCD program. 20-21mpg DD around Raleigh. 18/18.5 around town stick in the Sport Shift side & Sport+ program. About the same as my 335is was & the 135is is.

How does the performance differ from the stock 435i to 435i+M suspension+35hp?
Is the cost justifiable in your opinion $4400CAD, and if you could go back in time and change your mind, would you still add all the M upgrades?

In the states, are all other M upgrades a prerequisite before adding the M exhaust and M power kit.
In Canada, in order to get the extra 35hp and M exhaust, we must add the M package #1 first which includes everything else.

It is a very noticeable improvement. I would do it again in a minute. I think it is the way the car should have come from the factory (and it looks like it will with the 440i). As far as I know, in the US, you can add the MPK without the other M parts. I had the MPK installed along with the Limited Slip Diff and then I put the MPE on a few weeks later myself. I ordered my car as the M-Sport line, but didn't add any other M-Performance parts prior to the MPK.

If I ordered my car now it would get here near August.
Would you wait for 440i or just get 335i now.
They might not discount the 440i when it comes out as much as they are for the 335i now.

My thought on that is if you wait for the next great thing, then you will always be waiting. There will always be something new coming along. I think you can order the 340i now. Depending on what you want, the x35i plus the MPK should be about the same as the x40i.

According to BMWUSA the MPK does not affect the EPA certification or mileage.

Have no idea car was delivered new through the PCD program with the MPPK installed so have no before & after experence. DHP suspension is a no brainer & much better than the normal M-performance fixed suspension. Tight when you want to turn & burn; comfortable for the wife when she is along.

US pricing is a lot different. IIRC exclusive of the MPE which I installed later the MPPE, DHP & M-Sport brakes cost me around $2500 US which was buried into the price of the car. For the purpose that the car was purchased the cost was reasonable & would do it again. I don't think much is justifiable in a car with a $62K MSRP. Its all about wants.

In the US the M parts are la carte with no prerequisites. Lots of guys buy the MPPE as a separate add-on item after the car is purchased. On an ordered car the kit is port installed with no installation charge. The MPE is an easy self install, about 20 minutes work start to finish with a single ratchet or an open end wrench.
