Guys,

Just saw this on RaceChip's IG and FB.

Can't wait until it is available for me to offer it to you guys.

Here is their quote.

"The new X4M is a FORCE!

611 hp and 535 lb-ft with our GTS Black..

We are used to great performance out of Germany, but the new S58 engine from BMW upped their game here."


10/25/19: Dyno Sheet added. No baseline because we may have different baseline due to OPF and Gas Quality.
I just picked up my F97 X3MC yesterday. And I will get some dyno if I can find AWD dyno shop around me.

10/29/19: YouTube Video added. Some typo in th title. Should be F98, not G20.



11/10/19: Installation video is live. Also available for purchase on our website or directly.

Attached Images

Dear God. 611 horsepower off of just a chip? I assume that's to the wheels?

Yet to find put once the dynosheet is posted.

Once my F97 X3MC arrived, I will get it on and do more testing for US Spec.

I would say what Germany tested has OPF.

How would the engine handle additional stress? Every engine has an operating envelope and S58 is no exception.

No worries on the driveline as it’s mostly M5 parts and very overbuilt. S58 is totally forged so as long as your octane matches the tune, no issues there with a “moderate” boost increase.

As fast as these things are stock, I’m betting their X4M Standard Non Comp measured 540-550 engine hp stock. Then they added a safe 60ish.

This will make an awesome ride.......uhhhhh....awesomerrrrrrr

They are Germans. They know their stuff.
They won't push it to the max limit without thorough R&D.
This is only a beginning. Some others will claim more gain without knowing the details, just all about profit.

Of course not. American getting bigger and fatter. 600hp will be better than 500hp.

Can't wait on mine too.

Do you want to ship your RaceChip GTS Black over to me first and get it reprogrammed right away when it is ready?

Thanks for the Magnuson-Moss act from 1975 manufacturers in the US can only void the warranty if they can prove the issues are caused by an after market modification

You can remove it before visiting the dealer if you are to concerned.

I always left mine.

Also this very safe, it's not like a tune.

Others have answered.

But on the side note, guys are waiting on Flashtune like BM3, which is removing some of the factory safety parameters.

While RaceChip still relies on factory set safety parameters.

You can search the forum.
I have been selling RaceChip to F15/F16 X5/X6, F85/F86 X5M/X6M, and recently to F90 M5 and some G01/G02 X3/X4, G05 X5.

There are a lot of feedback about it.

I see so the factory would have the final say on if this voids the warranty? With these chips; will the vehicle require additional/more frequent or maintenance outside of the routine factory requirements?

Nope.
Unless if you are doing track days every weekend.

For normal regular driving, light to light pull or freeway ramp, you are good.

I had it on mine F90 M5 and it's great increase for price and very reliable.

Can't wait for mine X6M to arrive in Spring....will install one too
