Hi Ivan,Ivan said:ROFL @ big brake kit. Have you seen the standard brakes - especially the back ones?
I can't wait to get mine chipped and delimited. The RS6 went straight in to MTM (QSTuning in the UK) and got their chip - 506bhp (funny how it's 1 less than the M5 as standard ) and no speed limiter. I drove it for three years and didn't have a single problem!
However I've heard that unlike this chip, after which Audi still happily honoured the warranty, the BMW chip is not accepted by them, and so invalidates the warranty?
Is anyone going to go for it?

The reason a chip is expensive is because the company supplies a replacement ECU. An Audi S3 ecu remap at MTM was 800 pounds. An RS6 ecu remap at the same company took the same amount of time and effort, but cost over 2k. I believe this is because the ECU is so much more powerful and expensive. So I'm guessing that's the reason for the M5's one being so much!
I didn't realise that our cars would only have 2 years of warranty. Where does it say that - I was not informed of this at any point! Mine came from Germany and is a full UK-spec car. When were you told?
The 3rd year of warranty is not a factory warranty but supplied by BMW UK so if you imported your car it doesnt have it. You can purchase it from a BMW dealer if you wishIvan said:I didn't realise that our cars would only have 2 years of warranty. Where does it say that - I was not informed of this at any point!

Would that be all German dealers? - do you have any further information on GPower?max_m5 said:I was told by our dealer that the GPower power increasement is no problem for the m5 engine, because it was built to have 600hp. our bmw dealer says that he would put in the chip and its completely no problem
