Water pump, PS, and alternator pullies are only good for about 10 hp. Of the 3, the only one I would even consider under-driving on a daily driven BMW is the power steering. Under certain conditions, such as for a track car, the others might make more sense. At this point, on my car, it's kind of pointless anyway.

Yeah, unfortunately BMW doesn't leave much cheap/easy hp on the table.
