528i Tune//Mod?

Has anyone here tuned his 2011 528i? I stumbled across this product... thoughts?


Claims almost 19HP//25Nm torque gain...

Also, something tells me this was only meant for the N53 rather than N52...

A little much

If I understand the web site and the price, $1100 is a little much for 19 HP.

Highly doubt those claims. The only way to get more power out of this engine is with an exhaust, and even then, you're not going to be gaining much.

This tune is basically the same as the 2012 N53 530i over here in Europe (272hp).

Shouldn't be a problem to get these gains on a N53 528i (BMW does it with the same engine in the 530i so the hp is in there).

But will probably not be compatible with the US N52 528i (which is rated at 240hp and not 258hp as the european N53 528i)
