What do you mean? Like early models have more HP than later ones?

You mean measured, not rated right?
The early releases of the car were full bore. They were Dynoed at far higher numbers. For the Supra, and m340i. Then they released a software update and it detuned the engine. Lost like 40hp at the wheels on the 340. Then another update dropped by like 20hp.

So the people getting 340s now are down like 60hp over the first releases(if they didn't get ecu updates). Or the car reviews that were early on were putting out far more power than they are now.

The upside is a tune will net A LOT.
