BMW 2-Series Coupe tuned by Hartge

Hartge released details and photos on their new tuning kit for the BMW 2-Series Coupe. At the exterior, the German model gets a new set of alloy wheels as well as special badges.

However, the most important upgrades can be found under the hood. The BMW 220i gets a power boost of 34hp to a total output of 218hp while the more frugal BMW 218d and BMW 220d deliver now 174hp and 218hp, respectively.

Hartge upgrades the BMW 535i GT

With the recent release of Hartge’s upgrade kit for the F10 BMW 520d, I kind of expected to see another one of their products really soon.

F10 BMW 520d with Hartge upgrade

Hartge is here with another nice build, this time for the F10 BMW 520d, and in a traditional Hartge way, the press release comes with a video.

Since the upgrade is basically just a power boost, the video also just deals with the simple numbers.

Normally, an F10 BMW 520d is good for around 184 Hp and 380 Nm of torque, which is not really that bad. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. And with the Hartge ECU kit, the 520d is taken up to 218 Hp and 450 Nm of torque. This is basically the kind of power developed by the BMW 525d version.

Hartge provides upgrade for F01 BMW 7 Series

As a general rule, if you were to buy a BMW with the purpose of modifying it, you would usually go for a 3 Series, or even a 1 Series, as there are plenty kits out there for them.

Still, that does’t mean aftermarket specialists can’t offer their services and products for the higher luxury models, like the 7 Series.

E28 BMW 535i by Hartge

Even before BMW became the global manufacturer it is today, they had a strong following, with the aftermarket specialists taking a shine to their products early on.

Such is the case with Hartge, that was prepping Bimmers for as long as I remember.

One very awesome oldie is the E28 BMW 535i owned by Christopher Björåsen, who has not only kept that baby running smoothly up to this point, but also equipped it with some improvements. His car has seen quite a lot of additions over the years, mostly from Hartge.

BMW X1 xDrive20i upgrade by Hartge

Last time we heard from Hartge they were busy meddling with the X3 xDrive30d, and after they were done with that, power output was seriously altered.

They did this by a (not so) simple engine tuning, and then showcased it in a video.

Hartge gets fresh with F10 BMW M5

Deutschland uber alles! Hopefully, I’ll still get to write again after such an opening statement, despite my certain bias towards Bavarian car makers.

Aside from a certain favoritism going on towards BMW, I do love a set of tuning companies that really know what they are doing when it comes to this kind of cars.
