Fantastic news for BMW 320d owners – with BMW Performance’s new Diesel Power Kit, you can now boost up your turbodiesel engine to 197 horsepower and 420Nm of torque, an increase of 16 horses and 40Nm. Best part is even with the additional power, BMW claims that your average fuel consumption will remain unchanged.

The BMW Performance Diesel Power Kit for the E90 320d includes a combination of hardware and software, unlike other third party tuning kits which usually just up the boost via a software update. BMW’s kit will provide you a new ECU with upgraded software tied to your car’s VIN number, as well as a bigger intercooler, a more powerful 600W electric fan, a new fan frame and a new plastic air guide. As this is an official BMW product, your warranty will be intact.

“Our fleet of BMW Advanced Diesel vehicles now account for more than 25% of the total vehicles delivered by BMW Group Malaysia. The vehicles have also played an integral role in our BMW EfficientDynamics strategy here and demonstrates our commitment in introducing Clean and Green technologies that perform remarkably well with the fuel specification currently available for the Malaysian automotive industry.” said BMW Group Malaysia managing director Geoffrey Briscoe.

Now if only the Performance Diesel Power Kit was available for the 520d as well, but I am guessing it’s something to do with the kit only being approved for cars with the 6-speed auto for now, as the F10 520d (available in Malaysia with an 8-speed automatic) can be fitted with the kit in Europe only if it has a manual transmission.

There are also a few new BMW Performance parts available to be specced onto your 320d or 320i. You can spec a set of BMW Performance front brakes, which are larger and more powerful. There’s also a new set of wheels available – the BMW Performance Style 269 which are 19 inch in size. For a sportier sound, you can install the BMW Performance Spor Silencer. For aesthetics, there’s a new shift knob with a new shifter boot, aluminium pedals, and sticker strips.
