    The S65 has been out for ~7 years & all the supercharger options are established with plenty of data (dynos, quarter mile times & trap speeds, etc). If you want HP, get:
    • Catless X-Pipe
    • Supercharger -- Active Autowerke, VF-Engineering, Evolve, Gintani or ESS with Evolve retune


    With stock motor, you'll be around 600 WHP HP on 93 octane with a catless exhaust. If you're gonna stay with just a tune, Evolve's prob got the best one.

    Enjoy your S65

    Save your money & don't buy the Dinan $#@!, go with the Macht Schnell intake. AND if you don't add a blower, you're going to be let down with the S65 when tuned 335's start flying by you (and how much the S65 will demand rev's before it gets going). I'm gonna assume you have a DCT since you're mentioning shift "roughness", which is only going to be gentle in the start-up "D" mode.


    If you're in Boston, take it to @BrenM3 to get retuned.

    can you adjust the transmission shifting(not sure exactly what its called but the shifting roughness) while driving or do you need to come to a stop?
    yes, that button with the growing "graph" on it affects the shift aggressiveness. personally, i drive in the most aggressive everyday and have never put it in D except for maybe 2-3 times in over a year. If your talking about any other sort of roughness you will need a tune, aka Evolve r AA to help you out on that.
    I can personally vouch for Evolve, but am confident with AA as well

    yes, you can adjust that while driving. I would suggest redaing the manual and setting up your "M" options though. thats what i do.

    pulley? well, ive seen lots of dynos showing hp gains. I have no experience with it. If it were me, id say go with an AA setup.
    I would suggest Evolve Xpipe and Tune though, i cant speak highly enough about it and actualy ooking forward to picking my car up and enjoying it N/A and Evolve tuned again

    Don't think that means it's done yet but getting close. Doesn't BMW have a tracker where you put in your VIN and it tells you where it's at?
