Exactly. +2, -2. Not very heavily modified. Not a great power bump nor weight loss. You can get very close to 500 hp with no stroker kit and no FI, just lots of sensible bolt on mods. Especially not impressive for the price. You can do WAY better with less money with aftermarket. One big argument I made early on in favor of the M3 over a modded 335i was that you could not exceed it all around for the price difference spent in mods. Here the opposite will be true. Of course then there is the 25 cars only and that fact that it will not come to the US.

All in all I'm very underwhelmed by this big news....
