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 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?

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..
