Changing the throttle map makes the car feel sharper and more responsive. A lot of so called tuners change the throttle map only and then tell the customer that they now have more power.
The only M car I recall that the M button gave more power was in the E60 M5 and E63 M6
So M boss is speaking out his a-hole then?
