Kelleners Sport module upgrade

Hi guys, need everyone's opinion in regards to the ecu upgrade. According to feedback, it's an easy plug in and drive.
I need some expertise advice if it's worth the money. Also, is anything else needed after the upgrade in addition to the dyno, just to be certain of the power upgrade?

Specs:
Adds 60 hp and 66lbs of torque.

Holy sticker shock!

Check out the Cobb AP with a custom tune here.

I'm not saying they haven't done it, but, 60 WHP on just a tune and pump gas seems to me to be a little far fetched considering what the other tuners are doing. You might ask for some dyno graphs from the tuner.

Those claims are insanely high. If it does make that kind of power I wouldn't expect much longevity from the engine. Just my .02.

I agree about the longevity of the engine. But , lets say hypothetically, the car wont be used at the track but for weekend driving. The power would "only" be used in certain occasions at the highway or to blow by punk racers. That shouldn't take a toll on the engine in the long term, will it?

I wouldn't touch it with a 10 ft pole. 1M's are seeing around 325-330 rwhp stock and 350-360 rwhp tuned. This one would theoretically be getting 30-40 more hp then the others. Whether it's a weekend warrior, daily driver, or a track car it's pushing things too far in my opinion.

Since you are in Hollywood why don't you get in contact with Randy @ Epic MotorSports in Miami? He's someone that I highly recommend. http://www.epicmotorsports.com

There was an article comparing German tuners and Kelleners was one of them. They have been around for a while.

Garage List
On a 135i, 60HP gain possible, on the 1M, if we are talking whp, from a tune only, unlikely. As others have said, sounds very aggressive (either their claims, or the stress on the engine as a result of such if indeed true)

If you check out kellener's website, they are claiming 60hp with just a tune.
