Leo at Eurocharged Performance in Toronto just finished flashing an 850i there 2 days ago. Added 140hp/100tq. will take my 50i there after it's break in period! Cost is $2799 + tax. Going to have them also do X pipe and muffler delete and add a couple of bullet mufflers and nicer tips. Any suggestions on tips out there?

You can here some clips on the site with just the X pipe removal.

I would try that out first, pretty loud.

It sucks to loose the exhaust valves when you want it quiet on a business call.

What is the update with that?
HAHAHA... thanks for asking!

The car has arrived in Germany.... in Munich at the Depot. It is waiting on the next transport to take it to the dealership in Wurzburg.

The Dealer has 3 days to clean it, prepare all the paperwork, install a CD player in the glovebox, and do the pre-inspection.

Then.... I can pick it up. Maybe 1-2 weeks?

It's a 7-hour drive, so I'll likely take a couple days off from work, drive out, stay the night, pick it up in the morning, and get to know it on the drive home.

TRUST ME... i will take pictures. I have over $4000 in parts and accessories sitting in my garage... all of which will need to be documented with pictures LOL I'll probably create a "progress thread" for it.

Re the X pipe that's an add on vs delete I posted a question a few weeks ago wondering if just doing the X pipe mod vs muffler delete would change the sound by itself. if yes would leave muffler and use Bimmerlink to code the exhaust valve

I've looked.... trust me.

I've bought a few "first year" cars over the years.... the ones that come to mind were my 2006 WRX (first year for 2.5L).... a 2016 340i (first year for B58 engine)... and now, the M50i.

Realistically.... it will be late 2020 by the time we see anything intake/exhaust related. But.... the Chinese will flood the market first with garbage products with no R&D done... so don't be tempted to jump as soon as you see something.

K&N is generally very quick.... 6 months or so. As soon as I pick up my car, I'm going to accurately measure the filter, and see if K&N has another one of the same size. If not, I expect them to release something soon anyway.
Parts are coming. Be patient. Just like the X3M the car has to be out for at least 8-12 months before you start seeing some mods for It.

I heard bootmod3 is beta testing the M50i tunes now, those should be good for 100-120 WHP. Downpipes Im assuming ER will be first on the scene r33_RGSport would be the guy to speak to about all of It as I purchased my tune from him. He has all the plugs.

Intakes will probably be a bitch, just like they were with m550i. That's been out forever and only 1 guy makes the intakes for them. So don't expect any intakes to be honest.

Like you I'm also super impatient for bolt ones for my F97!

This may be a dumb question but will a muffler delete cause CEL to come on? Looking to get some more rumble from the exhaust, not really sure what my best option would be.

Nope. There are no sensors monitoring the muffler, so you are good.
Just get exhaust flap bypass plug and you'll be good.

Awesome, thanks for the info. Any idea of where I can get the bypass plug?

Also, I might be asking too much but does anyone in the NY, CT area know of any reputable shops where I can have this done? Thanks

I believe ECS have it. Not sure that it will be compatible since it is for 540i.

The other way, just have the module connected and tucked away.
