How to know if you have a tuned car?

I just got a 230i and the gas pedals feels like an on/off switch. 15% of throttle is slow and 17% is super fast. It doesn’t seems progressive at all.

I come from a Mini with the same B46 (with less HP from factory) and my wife had an X1 (auto) and just feels weird.

Flat out the car is fast, no codes of anything but it makes me wonder if there is a tune on it. If that the case, how can I get to back to the stock tune?

I did buy the car from a bmw dealership which I would think scanned the car.

Check the Sport Gauges and see if the numbers are higher than stock values.

You could also email BM3 and MHD the VIN to see if they have any record of it.
