Wouldn't that do essentially the same thing as pressing the "Power" button?

WASTE OF MONEY lol
It doesn't do nothing that your foot can't do. Just mash the gas pedal lol.

it takes the delay out of the gas pedal though it supposedly gives it a fast reaction time when you step on it when you go threw the modes.

Had this on my e60. Does make a difference in terms of making the throttle response more sensitive, but I personally wasn't a fan.

The effect was very similar on the e60, not sure exactly how well it would behave on the M.

I've tried it on a E60 M5 and works great
I've tried on a E92 M3... doesn't work so great. Just drive in M mode and you don't need it.
