sprint booster installed

I just installed sprint booster in my 2011 BMW 750 xi M/sport. I am amazed with the response in sport mode. It was an easy install and well worth the investment. After positive results in my M.B. E63 and S55, I decided to purchase it for my BMW once it was made available.

Well after some reading I actually ordered one as well, do you really feel the difference? Does the unit for our cars comes with the light indicator? Any other info you can provide is much appreciated (instal, setup and such....)

How much?
How hard to install?

Will it void the warranty?

You will definitely feel the difference. I always loved the way my car accelerated in an effortless manor. With sprint booster there's no delay, just a push of the accelerator pedal and the car is gone. I have only tried it in sport mode, not race mode, which is more than enough for me. The cost is $329.00 from sprint booster's web site direct. It comes with a lighted wire that changes color dependent on the mode. You can set the mode and disconnect the wire if you chose. I hid the wire in the lower center dash compartment. As far as warranty is concerned, you can set sprint booster to stock mode if you need to visit the dealer. I installed the unit in less than 15 minutes hiding the unit behind the carpet where the factory wire is attached to the accelerator pedal.

I used to have the sprint booster installed on my 2008 E63 AMG, Since I got the 2011 BMW 740i, I thought when using the Sport + settings, it revs higher and response quicker.

So when you installed the sprint booster to the 750, it won't affect the sport + mode?
It will make it more responsive ?

Best $300 ever spent. Comes with the light indicator and 3 settings.
Stock, semi aggressive and aggressive. Highly recommended.
Amazing difference

What if you select comfort mode and have the sprint booster set to RED most aggressive settings? Comfort mode starts with 2nd gear, will that sprint booster help ?

Absolutely. It helps with every gear and as described by someone else above gives u an instantaneous throttle response each and every time. I have a chip and the sprint booster installed and it does a burnout from 1300 rpm which is when the turbo kicks in. Amazing.
