Now, more invigorating horsepower and torque is available with two new power kits that bring crisp stimulating performance to the Ultimate Driving Machine. BMW 135i, 335i and X6 xDrive 35i / 50i vehicles can now be retrofitted to an unprecedented level of performance. These new Power Kits ensure that new car buyers and current owners are in for that extra thrill beyond the outstanding performance that can already be realized with these exciting vehicles. BMW owners can now option their vehicles with two versions of the special BMW Performance Edition all-new Power Kit.
Version 1: New performance-optimized engine software. This version of the Power Kit was first introduced on the 335i BMW Performance Edition model in July of this year.
Version 2: Includes the same software as Version 1, but also contains an auxiliary water cooler and an enhanced radiator fan to reduce the higher thermal stresses on the engine during extreme driving. 
BMW Dealers are offering a special introductory price on all Power Kits from now until the end of 2011. By installing either kit, horsepower is increased to 320hp, a 20hp increase. Torque is increased to 332 lb-ft (when equipped with an automatic transmission) and 317 lb-ft (when equipped with a manual or DCT transmission).
You’ll also experience faster acceleration:
  • 0.2 seconds faster than the standard 335i model from 0 mph to 60 mph.
  • 0.5 seconds faster than the standard 335i model from 50 mph to 75 mph. 
For some models, the kit also produces an “exhaust burble” during engine overrun conditions, a new feature only applicable to Power Kits installed on 135i and 335i vehicles with engines manufactured from March 2010.
These kits, specially developed in-house by BMW engineers to work with 135i and 335i vehicles, retain the original emission certification, maintain the original fuel efficiency ratings, and the vehicle’s original BMW Limited Warranty is not affected.
Note: Power Kits should only be installed on 135i and 335i vehicles equipped with option code S840 (increased top speed limiter – which includes an additional oil cooler).
BMW Power Kits are the only form of “tuning kits” approved and covered under BMW of North America’s limited warranty.  Power Kits are designed and tested by BMW engineers to provide the highest power increase without sacrificing reliability.
