How does infinitas electronic performance increase work?
As part of infinitas’ electronic performance enhancement, the engine control unit / engine control unit software unit is being optimized. Depending on the control unit generation, different access options are used. The basis for the electronic performance enhancement from infinitas is of course the manufacturer’s serial data, which are subsequently individually tailored to the engine. The focus is of course on injection and ignition times. In addition, e.g. the boost pressure also changed or the boost pressure build-up optimized.
Why doesn't BMW offer the service realized by infinitas?
Does infinitas' electronic performance increase make it necessary to fill up with a different type of gasoline?
It is in the nature of the matter that after the control unit has been optimized using infinitas, the next higher grade of fuel should be refueled in order to fully exploit the potential of the standard engine used by infinitas.
Does fuel consumption increase after ECU optimization?
As with the standard vehicle, the fuel consumption after the control unit has been optimized depends heavily on the individual driving style. A permanent use of the (additional) performance increases fuel consumption. However, with a constant driving style, especially with turbo-diesel vehicles, noticeable fuel savings are possible. This is related to a lower speed level, since the additional power allows you to shift into the next higher gear earlier than before.
How does the engine life change after ECU optimization?
The aim of ECU optimization is to increase engine power. If this performance plus is called up permanently, e.g. with extended motorway journeys in the area of the maximum speed, increased wear must also be expected. With conventional driving, as is mostly the case in everyday operation, the additional load that occurs is negligible. The performance enhancements developed by infinitas always focus not only on increasing the output, but also on the reverberability and longevity of the modified engine.
A modified brake system must be installed automatically after an increase in performance?
The performance increases from infinitas are configured in such a way that no modifications to the brake system are generally necessary. However, it is important to ensure that when the maximum speed is increased, this is also covered by the tire index.
Does a vehicle often have to be inspected after the control unit has been optimized or do the inspection intervals shorten?
Basically, the maintenance intervals of the series are retained. Depending on the driving style, infinitas recommends shortening the oil change intervals somewhat (approx. 10,000 km).
Can infinitas' electronic performance improvement be reversed?
Of course, infinitas’ electronic performance enhancement can also be undone. For the variants with optimized control unit software, it is sufficient to have the original data stored again at the BMW dealer. If an additional control unit is installed as part of the electronic performance enhancement, the control unit must be removed.

With the application form provided by infinitas, you can contact the NSA guarantee directly and will then receive an individual policy from the NSA guarantee.
In addition to the vehicle-related criteria – such as e.g. Age and mileage of the vehicle also the conclusion of an infinitas car package.
hat does the infinitas Care Package offer me?
The infinitas Care Package is not only a prerequisite for receiving an NSA guarantee policy with an extended range of services exclusively for infinitas customers, it also provides you with active support in the event of an emergency:
A transfer of the defective vehicle carried out by infinitas from the workshop to infinitas in Autenzell (within Germany).
Infinitas carries out the free and immediate diagnosis of errors
Complete handling of the guarantee case in accordance with the NSA guarantee insurance conditions.
Direct billing with the NSA guarantee.
What benefits does the NSA guarantee insurance offer?
In principle, the NSA guarantee covers the cost of damage to the vehicle, including installation costs – in accordance with the NSA insurance conditions – during the insurance period. The insurance period is either 12 or 24 months or up to a mileage of 100,000 km, whichever comes first.
The max. Coverage of the NSA guarantee insurance in accordance with the NSA insurance conditions EUR 5,000 or EUR 10,000 for engine damage, minus a deductible of 10% but at least EUR 300.
How does the performance increase through an ASA / infinitas superchargersystem work?
The basis for this type of performance increase is the supercharger. This pushes additional air into the engine’s combustion chambers. Corresponding to the additional air mass, the optimized engine electronics in conjunction with the modified fuel system then supply the correspondingly additionally required amount of fuel. This means that the engine has more energy available per combustion cycle, which results in an increase in performance. However, this only happens under full load when the driver calls up the maximum power of the engine. In all other load conditions as they predominantly occur in everyday operation, e.g. in colony or city traffic, the performance corresponds approximately to the series status because the boost pressure generated by the supercharger is not used to increase performance.
Thus, the consumption and wear and tear of an engine charged by means of the infinitas supercharger system is largely at the serial level over long periods of use and is largely determined by driving behavior.
How do the SK Plus, SK I, SK II and SK III variants differ from each other?
The SK Plus are those performance levels of infinitas supercharger systems that do not require an intercooler due to their relatively low, cool boost pressure, since they have a relatively low, still cool boost pressure. All other variants, i.e. SK I – SK III, are basically equipped with charge air recooling systems. The SK I level differs from the SK II variant, in addition to the performance of the supercharger, also in the degree of necessary modifications to the exhaust system. SK III supercharger systems are the most powerful variants and, in addition to the supercharger system itself, contain a modification of the series engine. In addition, reinforced connecting rods and forged pistons are used to reduce the compression ratio of the engine.
Do I have to open the engine or reduce the compression to install an ASA / infinitas superchargersystem?
Usually no. This is precisely the advantage of an increase in performance through an infinitas supercharger system. The engine remains unopened and the compression ratio corresponds to the series. Only in the most powerful SK III versions of infinitas supercharger systems is the series engine optimized using compression-reducing, forged pistons and reinforced connecting rods.
Can the service continue to be carried out by my BMW dealer after installing an infinitas superchargersystem?
Yes, the necessary service can be carried out by any BMW dealer.
Do I have to refuel with a different type of gas after installing an ASA / infinitas superchargersystem?
Yes, in order to fully exploit the potential of the ASA / infinitas supercharger systems it is necessary to fill up at least “Super Plus”.
Does fuel consumption increase after installing an ASA / infinitas supercharger system?
The fuel consumption after installing an ASA / infinitas supercharger system, as with the standard vehicle, depends heavily on the individual driving style. A permanent use of the (additional) performance increases fuel consumption. However, fuel economy is also possible if the driving style remains the same. This is related to a lower speed level, since the additional power allows you to shift into the next higher gear earlier than before.
How does the lifespan of the engine change after installing an ASA / infinitas supercharger system?
The aim of the ASA / infinitas supercharger system is to increase engine performance. If this performance plus is called up permanently, e.g. with extended motorway journeys in the area of the maximum speed, increased wear must also be expected. With conventional driving, as is mostly the case in everyday operation, the additional load that occurs is negligible. In addition to increasing performance, the supercharger systems developed by infinitas always focus on the reverberability and longevity of the modified engine.
After installing an ASA / infinitas supercharger system, a modified brake system must be installed automatically.
The performance enhancements from infinitas are configured in such a way that no modifications to the brake system are usually necessary if the performance enhancement is registrable through the ASA / infinitas supercharger system TÜV. However, it is important to ensure that when the maximum speed is increased, it is also covered by the tire index. For all infinitas supercharger systems that cannot be entered, that is to say designed for racing, a modification of the braking system by infinitas is recommended.
Does a vehicle have to be inspected more often after installing an ASA / infinitas supercharger system or do the inspection intervals shorten?
Are the components of the infinitas aerodynamics program supplied painted?
infinitas aerodynamic components made of carbon are of course covered with a protective clear coat. All other aerodynamic components are supplied primed, provided that they are intended for the field of vision.
Can infinitas aerodynamic components be assembled by myself?
Individual components such as the infinitas carbon bonnet are perfectly suited to be assembled by the end customer. For complete body kits, however, we recommend leaving the assembly to a qualified specialist company or commissioning the assembly directly from infinitas. In this way, damage to the vehicle or the components can be avoided.
