Over gradual use, the owners didn't even recognize the power (as well as mileage) was missing.

That being said, your SA or BMW Technician likely cannot ID the DME software version, just overwrite when prompted for an update. Performance software is simply icing on the cake afterwards.

You state you have a 2008 in your details, when was the last time your M3 was serviced? If you can PM me the last 7 of your VIN, I can check if there are any notes in your service history.
PM sent!
