Hartge has unveiled their new tuning program for the BMW X1.

The entry-level 18d receives an upgrade which enables the engine to produce 169 hp (126 kW / 171 PS) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. This allows a manually-equipped sDrive18d to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.1 seconds (an improvement of 1.5 seconds) and hit a top speed of 217 km/h (135 mph).

If you happen to own a 20d, you order a kit which allows the engine to produce an extra 32 hp (24 kW / 32 PS) and 65 Nm (48 lb-ft) of torque. The added power results in a 0 to 100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds (an improvement of 1.2 seconds) and a top speed of 229 km/h (142 mph).

Besides the performance packages, Hartage offers a stainless-steel sport exhaust system, lowering springs (which reduce ride height 30mm), and 20-inch 'Classic 2' wheels. Inside, customers can order a sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and velour floor mats.
