BMW reverted back to 400hp for the 2013 550i on their website

Looks like they posted incorrect information. No N63tu for the 2013 F10 550i

Who needs 445 bhp when you can have 501 with a Dinan Stage 2 tune?

They must be mixing it up with the 650xi GC cause that is listed as 445 HP and 480 LB torque. Stock 0-60 is 4.3 seconds - that's sexy.

The end result is still the same, no matter it's 400 or 445hp. We still get to Point B.

Not so fast... If you click on the link to download the standard options and equipment file it lists the new engine for 2013, so your guess is as good as mine. The current info on the standard or specifications link doesn't specify the year:

The link you provided lists the year as 2013 on the first page, upper right hand corner. I wish they would clear this up already.

interestingly enough, the features and specs till also mention VANOS and Valvetronic (the 2010-2012 did not have valvetronic). I suspect it was just a change because of the number of other times 400 hp was mentioned, and they really don't have a clue about what it is. Either they forgot to take that out (probable) or they forgot to change other things.

BMW NA REALLY needs to step up to the plate and ANNOUNCE what is what. The webpage release is backfiring.

I feel bad for 2013 550i buyers. However, this is so entertaining.

If I was not one of those buyers, I would probably be entertained too.

I feel bad for you guys, but I'm also quite amused by this typical cryptic BMW transparency behavior.

You beat me to it - I was just about to make the same post. Besides, a friend of mine was toying with buying a 2013 and he would have loved to one-up me. As it is, he is probably getting a CLS63, but it is so much more expensive that it doesn't matter that he has over 100 hp on me.

The power gains aren't that big. The beast is already here, it's the M5.

For 100hp and 130 lb/ft gain....I think that it is well worth it.

Why? I had a 2008 e92 335i that was Dinan Stage 2 up to the day I turned it in. My dealer was cool with it.

My e92 M3 had a Dinan exhaust on it...dealer didnt mind at all..but I ended up selling it instead of returning to dealer.

I lease all of my cars, and I plan on going Stage 2 on my 550i as well.
