I almost bought that Hartge upgrade, but I just couldn't justify the insane cost. Would make the 125d very quick though

Something cheaper will come out I'm sure. They want over 2500 for basically a 250 power commander off a bike. What a rip off!

I have to agree. Whilst I don't mind paying more for quality (hence the BMW!), I also don't want to pay stupid amounts. If it was 1000 then although it would still cost much more than all the other tuning boxes I would buy it. 2500 is ridiculous though. BMW would probably charge less than that for their own power kit if they ever produce one.

The AC Schnitzer box is 2600 as well, I don't know how they ever sell any at that price.

I guess it must include taking over the BMW engine warranty since it is so expensive.

True. I don't know if I would trust a third party company with my engine's warranty anyway.

No, it does not include warranty. I've enquired already about this from the UK installer...
All he seemed to do was diss the likes of superchips etc.
