hard decision to make?

ok after seeing the new m3 i really need to do something with my 08 335i. when i first bought my car about a year ago i was breaking necks now ppl dont even bother to look at my car or wan to race it lol. so im deciding on which reflash/piggyback to get. im willing to spend the money for dinan but is it better then the vishnu or jb tunes...? i hear dinan is the way to go but to expensive. money aint a issue for my car i rather spend money on something with quality, after all it is a bmw.

JB3 or V3 both undetectable and powerful add an fmic and dp's and throw in some 100 oct. you'll beat the new m3.

JB3 with new high boost map would be plenty even on 91 to spank the e9x M3, atleast up to 100 mph.

Dinan is def worth ii if u got the money, u get a type of warranty, a great R&D product aswell but it has some downsides aswell.

the JB3 is a new Product from Buger Motorsports, it runs 14-15 peak psi can some very nice 70+WHP and WTQ gains, make your car very fast.

The V3 is about the same as the JB3, it is another name for the Vishnu Piggyback.

The SSTT is a low psi tune that is pretty safe and tested, wont yeild extradinary power gains but will feel like the car should feel from the factory.

Hey there,

Since you mentioned JB, I can answer, no exp. on the Dinan though. I've used every single JB from the start to JB3 (1,2,H,R,X,3) not a single problem, considering it installed right and proper fuel used.

Not to bash here or anything, but let's just say my car "didn't took" the V3. I did gave it time and tests.

so after hearing your comments ive decided on either the dinan or JB. what are the pros and cons for both. i hear the dinan has a bit of lag or is that just for the stage 2 upgrade? and i hear nothing but great things about the JB tune and its cheaper but o warrenty.

Well high price doesn't always mean best quality. We've got exhausts and tunes like the Remus Exhaust and the Juicebox 3 tuner that are affordable and high-quality. It will definitely save you money and bring you what you're looking for.

If you want people to race, go to the track. It seems almost everyone there wants to race me.

LOL go jb3

and to anyone that comes in here claiming the v3 has too many problems better watch out shiv gonna show up and make you show n prove ; )

the v3 or the jb3 are both great tunes

the v3 flat out does TOO MUCH shit for me

im happy with my little black jb3 thats about the size of a pack of cigarettes and does the same thing (as far as gains, v3 does some cool stuff too)

jb3 - 579
cant go wrong
