BMW M Performance Power Kit for F30 335i Review
Since fitting last Friday, my fuel consumption in normal driving has increased dramatically. My 50 mile each way commute used to give about 45mpg, with PPK that’s 35mpg.
The official BMW literature claims no mpg difference in normal driving. The car runs far less smoothly, the gearbox is up and down the ratios like a yoyo even on the motorway and the shifting is now very jerky. And the power increase?
We’re talking the difference between having a full or empty tank, or one passenger compared to none. In summary, a complete waste of time and money, which has now basically ruined the car for me. Very unhappy indeed and trying to get a refund and car put back to standard. Should have gone for the tuning box option which is easily removed and most of whom do a refund if you’re not satisfied.
Edited by cycle tramp on Wednesday 7th October Never heard of it but thanks for posting. Strong smell of BS to charge more. How much was it? The kit includes a new intercooler and ecu and your warranty remains intact. Just to clarify, the advertised fitting time is one hour but that doesn’t include coding. This can take apparently between one hour and up to twelve hours. This doesn’t add to the fitting cost but if you’re there waiting it sure is a waste of a day. Anyway, the kit adds almost no power and is a complete load of bs.
Sounds like it may be fitted incorrectly, maybe there’s a boost leak somewhere from where they’ve swapped intercoolers? That could make the car behave inconsistently. Blimey, I’d be getting that back to dealers pdq.
I’m sure you are already on it! I’m also very confused about the hours thing. What would be bespoke on either that would need coding? I would guess the software comes direct from bmw servers in Germany and you pk at the mercy of how much demand is placed on them at the time.
AFAIK you can only get official software updates from ppj dealers with a hard link to volvo servers. The above may be complete b ks btw. Interesting to see how it gets resolved anyway.
There has to be something wrong ,Knitware had his done and loves it,,rolling road figures bhp on someone elses car as well. For example in the comfort setting there is a change, it’s as it was before the PPK when driving normally but when I go for an overtake the urgency of the gearbox and engine is instant, it’s almost like it’s switched to a sport setting if that makes sense.
There’s no need to move the gear stick to the left, overtakes can be made in comfort with no lag, it’s a really good improvement. With the gear lever left and the button in sport presented is a huge beautiful linear flow of torque and speed with each gear change nailed in at the top of r30 revs, it’s super quick but there aren’t many places and opportunities to drive like this too often, saved for a treat.

Using this thread as a guide,it seems that there may well be something wrong with your install Car is booked in next week to see if there is a fault. To be fair I don’t think its a dealer fitting issue, I think its more likely to be a combination of my unrealistic expectations, misleading BMW literature and the fact that my car was probably making a fair bit more than bhp originally.
In any case, can anyone honestly say they would notice 0. Damn sure I cant.
Just out of interest, what models can you fit these kits too? I’ve got a d lpk 2l one, or are there only kits for limited models?

Please keep us informed and good luck Edited by smashy on Saturday 10th October T5SOR 1, posts months. Any updates in this? Where do BMW list this as I can’t see it mentioned in their website.
Maybe r30 is just a case of calling the dealers? Should have posted this a month back. Raised a complaint with the dealer, they had the car back for a day and returned it all to standard thankfully they still had my old ecu and intercooler and gave me a full refund. Absolutely top service from BMW and no quibbles at all, so the aggravation I was expecting didn’t materialise, thankfully.
The car was back to its previous self, ie much smoother and mpg back to where it was before. I really couldn’t recommend this upgrade. The power increase was barely perceptible and the additional fuel consumption and ‘busy’ gearbox mapping just made it s te to drive. Decent power increase, comes with a money back guarantee and you can take it off and sell it if you ppk the car. What did I do in the end? JNW1 4, posts months.
