What computer/performance can we do without voiding warranty?

I just got into a 2019 F56JCW from a r56. There is definitely a bit more power but I think it really could use more. Seeing that I'm leasing the car, is there anything I can put on that the dealers can't find out about?

also, I used to hear the waste gate "whoosh" on on my old r56 and don't hear that anymore now. anyway to get that back?

Thanks!

What year car do you have? This is the second gen section, and you have also posted that you had a third gen on order? There are plug in performance modules that are 100% reversible. One of those would be perfect for a lease car, because you can remove it whenever you need to take it to the dealer.

As above, are you sure it's a r56 JCW and not F56 JCW?

I'll be surprised if a dealer is still leasing any r56 JCW in 2019.

The 2.0L BMW engine can be tuned to 300bhp without any problems. Maybe larger FMIC and free flowing air filter is all you need.

If you're after a tuning box just google "F56 tuning boxes".
