BMW M Performance F10 kit ordered

I ordererd the M-Performance kit for the 520d/automatic. Will get it installed 11 April, 1300 euro in total. Will make some measurements of the acceleration before and after.

I guess it has some interest for the (mostly) european 520d owners in this forum

Lets not talk about taxes :-(

Im using the friendly BMW dealer in Lübeck, they always give perfect service. 9 hours drive from Oslo, and have some fun in Germany at the same time to test the car :-)

Hi,

What does this kit include? Is this a software only upgrade? So I take it the increase is just under 20 bhp?

I am also thinking about getting the performance kit for my car.
Talk to my local dealer and they say that this kit is not available for Norway.

Then i told him i am going to Germany this summer, and will install it there.

Then they told me that i will loose the 5 year warranty on my car that is spesial here in Norway, since this kit is not available here.

So i would preciate if some of you that is from Norway talk to your local dealers and hear what they say about this issue.

My dealer is Bavaria Haugesund.
But i have to correct: he said that i would probably loose my 5 year warranty because this is a waranty that BMW Norway is responsable for.

So my guess is that BMW holds the waranty for the first 2 years, and BMW Norway the next 3 years.

Usually it is BMW in Germany that stands for the warranty if you are a company and bought it, i.e. no consumer rights.
I have imported new used cars and bikes from germany and they come with a 2 year warranty all over Europe.
In sweden they have this kit as well, but only for 520D sedan with manual gearbox.

They claim acceleration is improved 0-100km/h with 0.5s
Top speed is increased with 7km/h.

Looking forward to hear your experience with the performance kit.

Today i was in Bergen and visited Jæger (BMW dealer), and asked them about the performance kit.
They said it now was available. Cost of the kit was 17.000 NOK + instaling it.
Estimated time for instalation was between 5 and 6 hours.
So i guess total price for instalation in Norway would be around 23.000 NOK.
23.000 NOK is equal to aprox. 3000 euro.
So buying and instaling it in Germany is under half the price.

I also asked them about warranty issues regarding instalation in Germany, but they coudn`t give me an answer.

Hello Touring. Do you know if there are performance kits to 2012 535d xDrive? I have previously installed from Hartge Strandveien auto on my previous cars. But now that BMW has NORWAY 5years warranty and Hartge delivers 2years it has to be better with bmw original tuning when the warranty is 5 years due. org. parts. On my last 530 d 2010 I paid 30000 NOK. for Hartge EUC.
