BMW M Performance Power Kit Now Available for 2012 and Later BMW 335i Sedan.

Increased power, responsiveness, and sensation are hallmarks of BMW’s fully-developed kit.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 26, 2013…
BMW today announced a new M Performance Power Kit for the 2012 model year and later BMW 335i Sedan and 335i xDrive Sedan models. The M Performance Power Kit joins the existing M Performance Parts line which includes chassis, aerodynamics, exhaust system components, and trim accessories. Developed through consultation by the engineers at BMW M GmbH, the M Performance Power Kit is immediately available through all Authorized BMW Centers in the US, with MSRP starting at $1,100 (plus Installation) and retains BMW’s 4-Year / 50,000-mile New Vehicle Warranty when purchased with a new vehicle.

More Power. More Dynamic. More Emotion.
Once the Power Kit is installed, the vehicle’s rated horsepower is increased from 300 to 320 on all models. Automatic transmission-equipped models enjoy a 32 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 332 lb-ft), while manual transmission-equipped models benefit from a 17 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 317 lb-ft). All models receive a re-mapped accelerator pedal calibration for more dynamic throttle response, and the Power Kit produces a signature, highly-emotional “exhaust burble” sound during engine overrun conditions. 0-60mph acceleration is improved 0.2 seconds compared to standard 335i models, while 50-75mph times drop by a full half-second.

The BMW M Performance Power Kit features comprehensive engine tuning via advanced software 335i and 335i xDrive Sedan models. The kit includes updated software or replacement engine DME (electronic control unit), high-capacity engine air intake system, signature BMW M Performance engine cover, and rocker panel decals. This gives the 335i Sedan or 335i xDrive Sedan a substantial power boost (+20 horsepower) while retaining the original 50-state legal emissions certification and fuel efficiency ratings.

Installed with Confidence.
The vehicle’s original BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty is not affected by the installation of the M Performance Power Kit, and Kit components are covered under warranty for the duration of the original BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 Years / 50,000 miles) if purchased at the time of new vehicle sale, or for 2 Years / unlimited miles if installed later.


SUMMARY:

Customised for more adrenalin: Higher maximum output of 240kW (326 hp), performance-optimised engine specifications, technical features like sound customisation and accelerator alignment – the BMW M Performance power kit for the standard engine in the BMW 335i provides increased driving pleasure.

-automatic transmission: increase in performance from 225 kW/400 Nm to 240 kW/450 Nm (in 6th gear: 400 Nm)
-manual transmission: increase in performance from 225 kW/400 Nm to 240 kW/430 Nm
-improved acceleration from 0-100 km/h: -0.2 seconds compared to the standard
-improved elasticity from 80-120 km/h: -0.3 seconds compared to the standard
-optimised accelerator alignment
-extremely sporty engine and exhaust system sound: ‘exhaust bubbling’
-retention of the quality and guarantee claim
-fuel consumption and CO2 emissions remain unchanged

Included in delivery:
New engine specifications,
M Performance intake silencer,
M Performance engine cover,
M Performance plaque for the engine compartment,
M Performance stickers for the side sills,


UPDATE:

Yesterday, we brought you news of the availability of the F30 335i M Performance Power Kit (PPK) [full details].

The PPK increases the 335i's horsepower from 300 to 320hp (official factory quoted figures) on all models. Automatic transmission models will experience a +32 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 332 lb-ft), while manual transmission-equipped models benefit from a +17 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 317 lb-ft). 0-60mph acceleration is improved 0.2 seconds compared to standard 335i models, while 50-75mph times drop by a full half-second.

Well, these figures are conservative, as they often are from BMW. The following video shows the E90 335i PPK (also factory quoted at 320hp 332 lb-ft) producing 336 bhp / 377 lb-ft torque on the dyno (performed by Dinan and at a 15% drivetrain loss).

Time to change my name to 320hp. Sweet. What I don't get is why did they not offer this for the X5 35i. I think the 2013s can get the M Perf package but the 2011s and probably 2012s were left in the dust.

I paid 985 and it includes the dme. It's not a bad price for what you get and you know it'll be underrated.

That's nice, but steep for what you get. Having the peace of mind though that it's covered under warranty is nice.

How about spending that similar amount of money on aftermarket exhaust that only produces 5HP?

LOL...

Bought mine yesterday for under $1K...waiting for it to arrive so I can get it installed. Friend of mine who got similar PPK for his '11 E92 said it was very underrated, just like the stated 300hp for our cars.

Don't scoff at the "mere" 20HP and 30lbft of torque. Lets wait for the dyno results before and after.

I was at an NJ CCA event this weekend where the head of M Performance parts played a video of Steve Dinan putting a PPK equipped E90 N55 on his dyno, and quoted an estimate of 327HP and 355lbft, despite the factory claim of 20/30.

Package will also add an "M Performance" option to your drive select. I would hope you can set it to operate at max HP mode all the time.

Throttle response improvement was described as being more akin to a mechanically linked throttle, more linear and immediate.

0.2 faster than the standard I model. What's that mean for the xi ? How much faster?

Oh come on.. Why nothing still for the n54 e89?!? If you can do it for the 3 series you can do it for any n54/55 surely!

37 lb*ft for 1.1k isn't the worst I've seen - still get the factory warranty on it, so decent value. Would be interesting to see how this actually dyno's, pretty funny how their plot literally looks like they took the original and multiplied it by the constant 9/8.

This doesn't appear to help much when redlining, but should improve daily driving getup.

I guess it isn't too bad considering people buy aesthetic mods for more than that and it's just for looks.
