Experience with cars in general. I have not been a big "modder" in the past, so an extra set of hands would probably be helpful so that I can do this right. I will need to install the JB4, route the USB to the globe box and install the intake. There are a ton of posts around here on JB4 installation so hopefully that helps, and from what I have seen it is not that difficult.

How much did you pay out the door for your JB4? I'm considering picking one up as well, but I'm wondering how much of an effect it will have on gas mileage. And more importantly, I'm not sure that its compatible with my car -- I have a 2011 335xi sedan. I'll have to do research on it tonight. Any thoughts?

I paid retail at burgertuning because I wanted to have a new one and have the peace of mind it came from the seller and it hadnt been used. Look in the website they have the pricing there. I bought the one that comes with the USB cable for hooking up your laptop and reading codes, etc. I have read effects on gas mileage are minimal if any. When you're driving normally it should be the same. The only problem is having a faster car might make you want to step on it more

Aww man, guess I won't be able to make it then - I'll be in Chicago this weekend. We'll have to meet up again though when I get back, I gotta see this thing after your install! Have fun everyone!

Take some iPhone pics! I wish I could be there to watch!

I'm picking up some CSL rims while I'm here in Chicago. Got an awesome deal on them!

Well thanks to roybfr and WERND it went well. It took us a while to figure out a couple things (like how to access the battery in an E93 - super annoying task). Overall the install was smooth and we were able to install the intake and the JB4 with the USB routed to the globe box in about 3 hours. The results were instantly gratifying, especially after the first time revving it up and hearing the turbos really come alive for the first time. Seems the car should have been tuned this way from the factory, especially with the M Sport package, but thats another story.

I have not been able to really push it to its limits but ran map 1 for a couple of days and am now running map 5, which I dont know if it has adjusted to my car yet. The car feels more powerful (although not 60 hp more) but I will it it a few days while the temperatures gets under 100. Its been hot here!!! Overall I am still please with my purchase. The steering controls are awesome. The needle sweep on startup is cool. iDrive warning disabling is welcome. Again the sound of the turbos make me smile every time. Just makes me like my car even more. Props to Burger Tuning for a very well engineered product.

Anybody wants to check it out LMK, will anyone be going to the the picnic this Saturday?
