So, was the car fully warmed up, oil to temp, etc prior to the runs without the M button? YES.. I am not a novice to tuning cars to be asked this ridiculous question..I am 51 yrs old and understand the basic parrameters when dynoing a car, and so does the operator..

And were the dynos corrected for the conditions, or was this a raw, uncorrected output? AGAIN...yes

Why don't you start a thread on the main forum about the M button adding more power? Or I can- I'm sure most of us want to know...Good Idea
My car has performed 2300kms and has never used a drop of oil during or after the break in period..

I never followed the recommended break in procedure ( keeping the car under 5K rpm ) and drove it hard from the moment I drove it out of the showroom..

From day 1, I couldn't believe the power my 1M produced comparing to my tuned 135i.. Might just have a freak engine or a over tweaked tune from BMW.. who knows..

That is the power it is producing..
Two independant dyno's cant be wrong.
