...at Habberstad BMW on 6/25. He really
didn't want to release the price yet, but my guess is around 10K WITHOUT labor (rumors from
others). You will have M5 performance in an auto tranny. I would not recommend doing it though unless you plan to keep your car a long time. You will only get back a fraction when you sell it. Personally, I would like to keep my car for another 10 years. If you race a lot and you
decide to go for it, you might
even consider the extra warranty just to be
on the safe side. I just want to have a bit of fun, but I am not planning on overdoing it.
No warranty for me. Horsepower will be around
410 and torque will be in the high 300s (ft-lbs).
They have not released a figure yet on the torque.
The auto tranny might have a bit less so that
it can handle the torque.

: : get the Dinan supercharger. Should be out in a week or so for the manual tranny. Auto tranny
: : to follow shortly thereafter.

: : : Well....I have yet to really G-tech the car (waiting for same temp as previous runs) but....by the seat of my pants, the 3.15 doesn't seem to make the car a whole lot quicker off the line????

: : : I know that Jimmy has taken off 0.5 seconds from 0-60 but it sure doesn't feel like it to me. Granted, the car is objectively running at higher RPMs throughout
: : : (about 400 rpm).

: : : Amyways...will post G-tech results before and after 3.15.

: : : I am seriously contemplatng putting in the 3.46 from the 528iA - that should really make a difference. Thoughts? My car is a 540iA.
