Performance upgrade 530D? Is this guy lying

As far as I was aware there is no such thing as a 270BHP upgrade for a F10 530D

Take a look at the link ...

I'm not aware of any official upgrade. Maybe a genuine mistake, typo or third party upgrade. Or as you suggest, even a lie

BMW at least had a Performance Power Kit for the F3x 330d and F1x 530d that increased the power from 258hp/560Nm to 286hp/600Nm.

It also includes a front brake upgrade to match the euro 535d brakes in the UK too.

No it's real, I just put a deposit on it (going for another test drive today) and asked dealer to evidence the power upgrade.

Going in on Friday to have calipers and wheel hubs painted, I hate the look of these when they rust.

Question is which colour? Hubs will be black, calipers I'm not too sure... Black, Red or Blue?
