If you own a 2012 or later BMW 335i Sedan and 335i xDrive Sedan and want a little more from the M Performance line than just the existing aesthetic, suspension and exhaust additions, BMW has an announcement for you. It is releasing an all-new Power Kit to accompany the existing line of M Performance accessories and give the 335i Sedan a much deserved boost in power.
Under the hood, both versions of the 335i push out a stout 300 horsepower from the factory and this M Performance Power Kit bumps it to 320 ponies. In terms of torque, if you have an automatic-transmission-equipped 335i you can expect a boost from 300 pound-feet of torque to 332 pound-feet and a manual-transmission-equipped model jumps to 317 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the power boost, you also get a remapped accelerator pedal configuration to increase throttle response.
The output bump is thanks to advanced software upgrades, a new ECU, a high-capacity air-intake system, an M Performance engine cover and rocker panel decals. This all helps drop the 335’s 0-to-60 mph time by 0.2 seconds and the 50 to 75 mph time by 0.5 seconds for each model. This puts the 335i at 5.2 seconds to 60 mph with a manual transmission and 4.9 seconds with an automatic transmission, while the 335i xDrive drops to 4.9 seconds with a manual transmission and 4.6 seconds with an automatic transmission.
The kit is available immediately and starts out at $1,100 over the base model’s MSRP. Additionally, this will not affect the 4-year/50,000-mile warranty that BMW offers on the 335i.If you choose to add the package on post-sale, you get a 2-year/unlimited-miles warranty on the components included with the kit.

BMW M Performance Power Kit Now Available for 2012 and Later BMW 335i Sedan.
Increased power, responsiveness, and sensation are hallmarks of BMW’s fully-developed kit.
Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 26, 2013… BMW today announced a new M Performance Power Kit for the 2012 model year and later BMW 335i Sedan and 335i xDrive Sedan models. The M Performance Power Kit joins the existing M Performance Parts line which includes chassis, aerodynamics, exhaust system components, and trim accessories. Developed through consultation by the engineers at BMW M GmbH, the M Performance Power Kit is immediately available through all Authorized BMW Centers in the US, with MSRP starting at $1,100 (plus Installation) and retains BMW’s 4-Year / 50,000-mile New Vehicle Warranty when purchased with a new vehicle.
More Power. More Dynamic. More Emotion.
Once the Power Kit is installed, the vehicle’s rated horsepower is increased from 300 to 320 on all models. Automatic transmission-equipped models enjoy a 32 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 332 lb-ft), while manual transmission-equipped models benefit from a 17 lb-ft peak torque increase (to 317 lb-ft). All models receive a re-mapped accelerator pedal calibration for more dynamic throttle response, and the Power Kit produces a signature, highly-emotional “exhaust burble” sound during engine overrun conditions. 0-60mph acceleration is improved 0.2 seconds compared to standard 335i models, while 50-75mph times drop by a full half-second.
The BMW M Performance Power Kit features comprehensive engine tuning via advanced software 335i and 335i xDrive Sedan models. The kit includes updated software or replacement engine DME (electronic control unit), high-capacity engine air intake system, signature BMW M Performance engine cover, and rocker panel decals. This gives the 335i Sedan or 335i xDrive Sedan a substantial power boost (+20 horsepower) while retaining the original 50-state legal emissions certification and fuel efficiency ratings.
Installed with Confidence.
The vehicle’s original BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty is not affected by the installation of the M Performance Power Kit, and Kit components are covered under warranty for the duration of the original BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 Years / 50,000 miles) if purchased at the time of new vehicle sale, or for 2 Years / unlimited miles if installed later.
