Does the new JB3 remove the speed limiter?

I just git my new E92 and i was soon to find out the top speed was 135??? Whats up with that! Haha well I was trying to find out if the JB3 will remove the speed limiter. I am really interested in the power that the JB3 offers. But if it does not reomove the top speed limiter I think i will be going another route. Also is there any other way to remove the speed limiter and use the JB3 software??

As far as I know, only the PROcede, some flashes, and the AA SLD remove the Speed Limiter.

If I remember correctly I think is 150mph or 155mph on e92. Cuz I went pass 140 and didn't see any cutoff

If you can't get past 140 something is wrong with your car. I fly past 140 easily and hit a brick wall at 155.

Anyone near Clearwater, FL with a BT Professional that would be willing to meet up and remove my 135mph limiter?

Really? I thought I read somewhere that it could be done with the Pro ver. but not the enthusiast one.. Do you think if I went to the dealer and asked them to at least but my limiter up to 155mph they might do it?

Can anyone confirm that forsure the BT tool cannot remove the speed limiter, also would it be possible for a local BMW dealer to remove the speed limiter???

A dealer is not gonna remove the limiter for you so you can forget about that.

Well the reason for them putting a 135mph limiter on the non-sport was because it did not have the higher speed rated tires from the factory.. So I was thinking about going there with my now Y rated tires and asking them kindly to raise my limiter to 155mph like the sport models get..

Euro-cars are limited to 250km/h, tested my e93 335 last summer (with no mods) with gps in germany and 259km/h (162mph)...That is enough for most of the time

I mean all 335i's should have a 155mph limiter, with the JB+ at 100% installed on my car now I get to 130mph in no time and if I remember correctly not even into 5th gear..
