That's where I am as well. Really don't like JB4, but my PPK isn't cutting it.

If anything, involving us in the process (regardless of how long it takes) is powerful marketing, IMHO. Maybe a sticky with periodic updates on their progress, tidbits on the N55 (good and bad) and anything else they find interesting while they're working on the tune.

Anyone listening?

Just got off the phone with Cobb and I quote, "can't give a release date, but hopefully by summer". So still tight lipped about specifics, nothing new there, but at least they are confirming 3 months or so is realistic.

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and to be honest, new to cars in general. I was given a 2011 335i special edition last November and I've been addicted to reading the forum and bmws.
Excuse my ignorance but I was wondering if the jb4 quality is not as good a cobbs? Is that a reason why n55 maps have been released for jb4 and not Cobb?

I'll answer only the later part of your question because the first part I suggest you take your time and read a bit more... People gets pretty emotive about that and tends to protect their tune choice no matter what... I suggest you make your homework and find out which one fits you best.

So, to answer your question, Cobb is relatively new to the BMW scene and began with the most used motor (and also easier to reflash), that is the n54. They are working on the n55 but its a work in progress and they expect to get something in 2012... Procede and JB4 are piggyback and for that reason they are "easier" to have them running without the need to reflash the DME. The n55 is known to be more difficult to write to, I've heard that reading is easier.

There are other flash tune available for the n55 but they require that you either go to their shop with your car or send your DME.

Hope this helps...

I also suggest you PM (or call) Jeff@topgearsolutions, he's a sponsor here. He sell all those tunes and can probably help you out. You will probably also get the best price possible...

Just got off the phone with Adrian at Cobb Plano and from what he has heard the "realistic" release for the AP is beginning of April. I know we have heard next month a bunch of times from COBB, at least I have, but I asked him to give a real timeline, if it is August I was good with it but not just call back next month. He said beginning of April looks like the date so lets keep our fingers crossed.

I am out of 730 bucks, will try to sell it for cheap once Cobb comes out but this sucks balls... unless Cobb's numbers end up being more like Dinan.

Glad I didn't purchase anything... No I did not pay for my Stg 1... So even with a release date of April-ish 2012 for the E90 N55, that means it will be April-ish 2013 for the E70 and F10 N55 platforms?!?
