I am one my car is a 2009 model. I got 391 whp. I was expecting to break the 400 whp mark. After reading through this forum and how the oem software update are improving whp numbers, I performed a full software upgrade a month ago and did a tune again. I have yet to dyno another time. I am using 95 octane. Though many say it is more like 91. But that is the best we got here.

I would have posted the dyno video and graph, but stupid iPhone showed an update to ios6 without giving me heads up that I needed to back up my phone 1st. So i lost everything including my entire summer memories!

Catless xpipe, tune, pulley, ms intake kit, maybe some scoops and you'll easily hit 400whp and that's with 91 octane

My old 2008 E92 M3 had a tad over 400whp using pencil geeks gear and ratio on a wheel hub dyno.

The mods were :
-full AA catless X-pipe and muffler
-AA filter
-AA Pulley
-AA Ecu tune

There are some dynos of cars with just bolt on mods making 390+ rwhp SAE on a Dynojet. I have seen only one dyno of a car with just bolt on mods making 400+ rwhp SAE on a Dynojet, and it is not in the dyno database.

I would like to see more, but I think it requires higher octane so the ignition timing can be sufficiently increased. The only way to get that is with race gas or meth injection. That is why I bought a meth injection tune. I have not gone to the dyno yet, but have the usual bolt on mods like catless x-pipe, high flow filter, and underdrive pulley. The rear exhaust and fancy intake seem to be of questionable benefit so I do not have those.

Many people have reported smoother and more consistent power, and possibly a little more power, with a software update to the latest BMW software. Others have noticed better driveability from fresh spark plugs and a fresh air filter (BMW's maintenance intervals are questionable in the opinion of many of us).

400WHP is nice with some simple bolt ons and a tune very impressed that the M can get to that ... My z06 was almost 5 to the wheels and it had exhaust, intake, thermo, and a tune. ran 11.3s in 90-100 degree weather and humidity of august in NJ
