drivers package
hi all , I would like to know can one have the drivers package fitted on a car after it left the dealers when new , for example , if I bought one of those very tempting used V8 M6 's with the limiter set at 250 km/h [non-competition], is there a way to up the speed limit without compromising the motorplan.

Yes you can,

BMW will still retrofit the M Drivers Package even if the car was not purchased with it initially.

RE: drivers package
M Driver's package is expensive for what it is when retrofitted. I've looked at this. They could never confirm that there was advanced driving included or not (you get a special driving school and some extras in the US). Question is how often you will need to go beyond the limiter to justify R35K+

If you end up later doing software on the car, the limiter can be removed

it cannot be coded - needs an FSC code for your VIN from BMW.

Perhaps you can message me when you've investigated and we can approach them for a 'package deal' of sorts... after all it this costs them literally nothing. No other hardware changes or changes to gearbox/diff settings.

I can often justify a premium in some way, but for this, I cannot...

RE: drivers package
250 ish , hmm , every time we were on the highways in my friends e92 m we hit the limiter so quickly that it catches you by surprise , same with another friend merc SL55 , I just don't like the idea of a car telling me you had enough fun now , all this must be done where it is safe of course , I should think a v8 M5/6 will probably hit the limiter in some of the guys driveways if one looks at the power difference in regard to normal aspirated M cars that I have experienced.

RE: drivers package
The V8 M5 rapidly reaches the limiter, sometimes not even realizing it

RE: drivers package
@Pho3niX90 any ideas?

Looks like a bunch of us would give BMW free money for a code of it wasnt that insanely priced.

RE: drivers package
I think I know a guy that can get the fsc code for a price. I will have to check, however I would not purchase the drivers package. I would rather just load bootmod3 on the car, or wait it out and load mhd when it's available.
