Default 2015 bmw gt

The 2 Litre Diesel is lacklustre compared to a 3-series Beemer. Any suggestions to improve performance short of replacing the engine or the vehicle?

In the old days we would tell you to pull out the cigarette lighter, ditch the rest of the car and put a C5 Z06 under the ciggy lighter.
You get the idea?

I really like BMW, except diesels and the GT; that weird rear hatch... Sell it B4 nobody wants to buy it.

LOL!! This just keeps getting better & Better..

IBTL!

Replace the engine with an LS3. Boy, you would be the talk of the BMW World.

Gas Monkey Garage put an LS3 in a Porsche. That made it really fast and it FIT!

A number of 3 and 5 series are running LS units - older models, before the use of electronic gizmos rocketed and made engine swaps difficult for everyone. A ton of stuff on the web about these swaps. One owner quoted that his swap actually cost less than getting his M3 a new BMW engine.
