So the price difference and the upgrade difference would be $2,000? If so, that is completely unethical of one of your distributors (that you referred me to) to charge me $3,000 for this exact upgrade that I inquired about after you made an announcement about its availability. I expect that vendor to get in contact with me to make this right.

SYZ, upgrade kits are not the difference between the stages and are priced differently. The VF540 to VF595 upgrade is $3495. VF540 to VF620 is $3,895.

That was never the case before. It was always retail between the kits was the cost to upgrade. The vendor also told me that if I wanted to upgrade to the 620 it was an additional $1200, making the upgrade cost $4200, not the $3895.00 that you're stating. So pardon me if I still have an eyebrow raised. Anyway, can you get in touch with me so Nik can send over my new tune file for the 595?

Thanks.

VF595 to VF620 is $1,595. All of our pricing has changed, starting back on 9/1/13 for most of our kits, not just BMW. I'll speak with the Technical dept. to get a status update for your file if it hasn't already been sent.

Thanks; I have not received it yet. I look forward to installing the kit and giving my impressions after I have received the 595 tune file.

This pic of our manifold looks more like an actual grill, but it does the exact opposite of creating hot air
We get a lot of compliments on the close to factory look and we also get comments about it not being aggressive enough; to each their own but the beauty is on the inside!

SYZ, Technical hadn't received any file requests from you. If you're ready to install the VF595, please send your file request to technical@vf-engineering.com with your Name, VIN, and Hex flash serial #. No readout needed, just the info above. We can use your full readout from your original VF540 install.

That carbon-fiber manifold looks pretty snazzy. If it were me, I would love one of those but with an "///M Power" type of logo instead of the embossed "VF."

i can ague the design of the internals, its defintiely fantastic, i jus think you guys should update the outside look to really do your kit justice imo.... the internal specs are very impressive imo.

So what's the difference between the 595-650 kits? I'm assuming it's a tune and a different pulley.

Anyone considering a kit and the big financial investment. Do not let the pricing be the reason for buying. We all want to save money.

Do your research on all the companies out there. Read forum reviews, reach out to forum members, reach out to main tuners in your area that do these kits and sell them.

Then determine if the cheapest kit new kit on the market is giving you best product for your hard earned money .
