I totally agree. For months I've said between 440 and 460 ps. Lowest I could possibly imagine is 430ps which is 424bhp, but common logic indicates more.

As for Comp packages now offering more power, it's a pretty tacky thing for BMW to do unless owners of the the non-comp models can retrofit the power bump for a small fee.
