Talking jb3 and intake filter arrived:awesome

Package arrived a few days ago. jb3 plug and play and BMS intake filter. Installation of jb3 took about 15 minutes (I am a complete novice but fiddles with everything) - removed covers the night before. Currently running on map 4. No troubles, CEL or funny check lights. have done just over 300 kilometres. power is smooth and strong. using the stock solenoid configuration. will explore the BMS solenoid kit after about 1000km.

BMS intake filter to be installed this coming weekend.

ordered through **********s and is completely impressed with the secured packaging, service and advice during ordering and shipping. will definitely shop with them again.

Had initial delays at south african customs but all went well eventually.

Wink grinning out loud

There is a new morse code for bmw twin turbo owners: jb3-R-MAP-7
The pull is phenomenal. When the car is in "D" mode on map 7 it feels hesitant but in "DS" the revs go mad. Floor it and the traction control flashes as the 19" low profiles struggle for traction and launches like a bullet. The sound from the filter and exhaust is amazing!!

Installed the BMS filter kit under an hour. Very easy indeed. Sounds like a BOV under hard throttle. Not sure if the car is faster but the SOUND is hectic!

Put on quite a few miles now on MAP 7 and the car performs flawless and runs much cooler. The exhaust note is richer, deeper, louder and simply fantastic. I have a complete catless (front and rear) system; rissracing down pipes with only the stock rear mufflers.

Another big plus after installing the filter is the clearance between the filter and the BMW performance strut brace. With the OEM filter box the brace did not fit neatly over the box and had to be raised with quite a few bolt washers - i think that is what they are called - which did not give the brace rigidity with too much flexibility. Now with the obstacles out of the way including the washers the brace tighten the front wheels to bite like bulldogs in a corner.

I will eventually settle with map 4 for my daily driving since fuel consumption appears lower compared to stock and considering my daily route to work.

I used BP 98 for 6 months then changed and settled with 100 octane race fuel from zeemax
Also experimented with NF Race Octane Booster (6 RON)

I've tried those octane boosters... can't say it does much.
same here...had to use almost the whole bottle on half a tank to "feel" the difference.

...Nope. depends on the finances. but once you feel the rush you get addicted...

Hey man, where in SA about are you? Im thinking about ordering a JB3, but im just quite worried about the installation with all the wires. And also about our petrol not being such good quality. Anyway, how long did you wait for the JB3?

It's $579 for the plug and play, which is our most popular option.
