ynguldyn whatever do you mean!?
I always thought, for ten or $15k you can turn a M4 into a M4CSL just the same way you can turn a mule into a stallion by putting a bunch of chili up its youknowwhere 🤪

LCI M3/4C xDrive will get a power bump but not the RWD M3/4C? Well, that's going to ruffle some feathers.

First time posting but love the threads and all your insights, hugely helpful! I have an allocation deposit for a G80 production starting in June 2023. So late in the model year. From what I've read here it sounds like you're predicting the MY2024 G80 will be an LCI and production starting July 2024, is that right?? Wondering yours and anyone elses opinions on if it's worth keeping this allocation for a 2023 :/ so late in the year. They're predicting delivery would be September 2023 or so.

Any predictions on what will change for the ‘24 i7? Will it just be a price increase? Will there be any new colors or will the various discontinued features come back (rear reclining seats, automatic doors, crystal headlights, etc etc)? Any predictions on when allocations for them will open?

ynguldyn Regarding the G60 i5 (first post), you say that the M60 version will have roughly the same output as the iX but then you also say that all i5s will adopt motors and battery packs of i4 (i4 M50 output is less than iX M60). What am I missing?

You're missing the flexibility of electric drivetrains and the fact that tweaking them for an extra 10% power output is not as difficult as doing the same with an ICE.

A simple super mild tune does this so easily on an ice motor, I don’t really see the advantage on ev here

If you are the original manufacturer, you would probably have to retest and recertify emissions on a different tune. They don't have to do that with EVs, so there are cost savings there.

Please feel free to offer examples of different applications of the same BMW engine (not just the engine family but actually the same engine, including the last two characters of the full engine designation) with 10% or higher difference in power output as coming from the factory.

Also, why do I need to “show you an example of a bmw engine doing this” crap? Why don’t you explain what gives EV such an advantage for a 10% power increase over ICE being so much easier, as you said and which I questioned and stay on topic.

Please calculate 10% of 600hp.

Try to understand what the conversation was about. Then we'll see if I owe you anything (spoiler: I don't).
