BMW is one of the manufacturers which develops powerful motors which it voluntarily limits in order to widen the range of models on offer and to be able to propose power levels which are less fiscally prohibitive.
But many users want to release their vehicle's potential, and they turn to P-Tronic.
Extremely commercially successful, the new 1-series offers a wealth of technology, in particular through its BMW Efficient Dynamics programme.
The 4-cylinder 1995 cc engine fitted to the BMW 114d, 116d, 118d and 120d can be equipped with the P-Tronic tuning boxes, which in no way interfere with the elements of this BMW Efficient Dynamics and which are 100% compatible with the particulate filter, thanks to the variable programme which they contain.
The same effectiveness for the new 5-Series (520d, 525d, 530d, 535d and GT), whose in-line 6 cylinder engine has been equipped with P-Tronic digital technology from the outset, and which has recently been further expanded by the offer of box-units.
As for the BMW 2-Series, 3-Series, 4 Series as well as their big brothers the 730d, 740d and 750d they have already been in the P-Tronic catalogue for some time.
P-Tronic has also offers tuning boxes for BMW's recent petrol engines. In particular the 114i, 116i, 118i, 125i, 135i, 220i, M235i, 316i, 320i, 328i, 335i, 428i, 520i, 528i, 535i, 650i, 750i, 850i, the GT's and Z4's. The M1, M2, M3, M4, M5 and M6 are also in the catalog!
The entrance of BMW into the SUV category has been made with the accompaniment of P-Tronic. All the diesel and turbo petrol engines of the BMW X1, BMW X2, BMW X3, BMW X4, BMW X5, BMW X6 and BMW X7 can be given extra vitamins through the use of a digital and an APT tuning box-unit.
The sporty versions from BMW are not forgotten either, in each of the series. The range starts with the compact M140i, which boasts a 423 bhp and 552 Nm engine, and continues with the M2 Competition, which rises to 510 bhp and 672 Nm, the M3, M3 CS, M4 CS, M5 Competition, M550d, M6 and M850i. SUVs are not to be outdone with the X3 M40i and M40d, the X4 M40d and M40i, the X5 M and M50d, the X6 M and M50d as well as the X7 M50d. Another word about the Z4, of which P-Tronic equips no less than 8 versions: from the sDrive 18i to the 35is and M40i with 340 bhp!
