I have an E87 :wink:

There will be one out soon... I'm sure someone can wait a little longer and spend the £1800 on some other BMW goodies.

Why are AC Schnitzer parts so expensive anyway? BMW Tax?

£1800 is pretty crazy in a VAG you can get a reputable remap for pretty much any engine for less than a 1/3, madness really
Now: m135
Before: f20 116i, e82 120d, impreza STI

You can like the idea as much as you want, they don't make one for the 116i. Hello? Is this thing on? :lol:

Never going to happen though.

AC Schnitzer - I started off supporting you in this thread as I can see why you offer the product you do, albeit to a smaller market. You are clearly not aiming to mass sell/produce these items but I'm sure they will sell.

Unfortunately you have come across as quite unprofessional in you last few posts and I doubt your doing your company any favours on here.
I'm sure the guys high up in your company wouldn't enjoy reading this thread.

Errr...that's not a Bluefin, it's a Superchip.

It does come with the same limited warranty though, which is good, although I doubt you'd even notice 6hp.

Japanred sometimes it takes a different approach to get a message across, but I've noted your comments, thanks ;)

Doesnt it say 15hp increase not 6? Hello? Is this thing on? :lol:

I actually see where AC is coming from, but, to most, the cost of the upgrade is just not good value for money, expecially on the 116i...
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.
