I can assure you it was the GM or someone close to his position that drove the M cars. Dealers do not demo those to irresponsible employees.

I've had several tunes of several cars but this is the first BMW. I went with COBB, it's easy to install and uninstall and gives most people enough choices for the street.

My son has a 2015 Roush GT, no way I could ever keep up with that beast. That being said I would start with a good tune and a new charge pipe. Downpipes and a fmic if you want more.
