Back in February, BMW announced the introduction of a new Performance Power Kit for the BMW 135i Coupe and 335i models. BMW performance power kit was announced to include both software and hardware components that will give a boost to the existing models.

No pricing or additional information were released back then, but last week, BMW released an internal memo containing more information regarding the Power Kit, including pricing. As we mentioned back in February, the upgrade will come with a hefty price and it seems we were on the right track.

Will the performance boost overcome the high price tag? Let’s learn some more about the BMW Performance Power Kit.

With sporty performance, outstanding driving dynamics and innovative technology, the BMW Performance Power Kit maintains all of BMW’s key attributes but allows our customers to put a personal touch on their BMW.

The effects of the modifications to the engine tuning parameters include:

•Increased torque of 317ft-lbs (manual transmission) or 332ft-lbs (automatic transmission) available from just 1,500 rpm.
•Increased power output of 20 horsepower from 300 to 320hp
•Faster acceleration from 0 to 60m/hour (0.2seconds quicker than the standard model) and from 50 to 75m/hour (0.5seconds quicker than the standard model).

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, meanwhile remain the same as for the standard model. To deal with the extra heat generated as a result of the engine modifications, an additional radiator, air intakes and a more powerful fan for the main radiator are incorporated into each kit.

Note: The performance modifications of the BMW Performance Power Kit in no way void the vehicle warranty. Additionally quality standards are not compromised in any way.

At this time there will be no center installation of the Power Kits until further notification. The Power Kits will be available for the pre E9x LCI models at that time as well.
