Cobb tune (if and when it is released) will be the last mod on my X5 (if it will even work on the E70 platform). Next purchase is a BMW motorcycle... Haven't decided which one yet though...

^^ how has the JB3 been on your X5? Any check engine lights, limp mode or codes with it? I am going to hang on to my Cobb when i return my 335 in hopes that they'll have a tune ready for the F10 by then. If not i'll have to switch back to the JB which i rather not do unless i have to.

only time I had issues with the JB3 was when it was first released (as I was the test dummy for the X series), but after the last update back in march '11 no issues with the tune... I've had another issue, but i don't think its the tunes fault... When I got the FMIC upgraded, the JB3 actually caused a boost leak when set to +5 over boost (because the silicon hose popped off the passenger side of the FMIC)... I need to update my sig block because I'm set to only +3 over with no pop off issues...

I may invest in a CP as well, but I don't see any that are compatible with the E70/F10 series... (X5 and 5 series share the same parts)

Too bad Matt isn't around to help you with the mods anymore.

I like mine okay but after I took it off the last time I vowed it would never go back on. Complete nightmare I would never relive again. I'll be selling mine when I get around to it. I'm either going with the Cobb or a flash tune that is available locally.

Oh well, everyone moves on to better and brighter things eventually... If he told me I had to go to where he is now for service/mod support, I would go there... It doesn't matter what shop he's located at, as long as I could get the same type of service from him..

Like I said, as long as HE's the one providing the service, it doesn't matter what *Business* name it's under...

Guess I'll be holding off on future mods anyway... a Charge Pipe and Cobb's tune are the final pieces for the X, and it's done... No meth (and I don't want to be the first X5 with meth either, no thanks, unless it's free *hint, hint*), no DP (because someone would kill me if I did)...

Got to save up for the BMW F 800 ST (because the S 1000 RR is out of my league)

What was the issue?
Blood and tears removing the fuel connector. Took me days and I have scars to prove it. Went on fine but was impossible to get off. Likely if you have small vice-grip-like hands it might be easy. Sadly I have gigantic paws not suitable for it.
