Switzer P700 Package

Thought this was interesting... Autotrader has an M5 for sale from Thomas Classics claiming to have a Switzer P700 package. False advertising??

Seller's Description and Comments
This 2013 BMW M5 had been fitted with Switzer's P700 package. The combination of hardware and software tweaks boosts the 2013 BMW M5s output from the factorys 560 claimed hp and 502 lb-ft of torque to nearly 700 hp and 640 lb-ft at the crank a huge improvement that can be felt in every gear.

Sounds like advertising hype which costs nothing and maybe some fish will bite without checking out the claims.

Switzer's P700 package exists for F10 M5 and package is indeed good for 700 hp and 640 lb-ft. Switzer is a serious company and a simple phone call and vin check with switzer should confirm if the car has P700 package.

I would assume you would do a simple check if you are getting a car over 100k.
I would not call it false advertising just yet. Perhaps owner got P700 on F10 and decided it was not quick enough and maybe they needed P900 GTR package

When you have enough money to buy (not lease, buy) 100k car, $6,995 for P700 package is the least of your worries.

I love the fact that the very next line states "Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information regarding our vehicles, errors may appear from time to time".
