So to say that the new tuneability of the F8X is a major selling point is an over generalization. Especially since it's all conjecture and guesses on what a simple tune can get out of the S55.

A flash doesn't get much more power out of an NA motor. But the aftermarket scene has been pretty big in BMW for a while now.
I think you are the only person who gets it in this entire thread
