Looking for an alternative to BMW service in our area

I've having an issue with a "miss" (read here) and I'd like to have somebody look at my car without it getting back to BMW that I have modifications done. Is there a shop that can handle a 335i in our area?

My main problem is the fact that the issue doesn't happen without my JB3 installed. So BMW isn't going to help me when I bring it in for service and they can't duplicate the problem. The only way I'm going to be able to keep the performance I've found with the JB3 is to switch to Dinan stage 2 or 3, duplicate the problem and have BMW fix it...

If I could get around the whole Dinan idea, I'd really be happy. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance...

have u checked your spark plugs? i'm getting missfire in cyl 5 and 6 and im changing my spark plugs. If u would like to swing by the day im doing mine and check yours you are more than welcome to. My plugs come in on Feb 3rd i'm going to try doing it in the evening sometime.

I'll have the tools so u can check your spark plugs, i'm not a mechanic so you would be doing it at your own risk.

I'm in broward.

I think its your spark plugs...same thing happened to me but I just took off the procede and took it to vista coconut creek. They dont bother you as long as the tune is out even if you have codes. Instead of getting Dinan to duplicate I would just not clear the clodes with the BT and take it in. I can only vouch for vista bmw coconut creek though because I have thrown codes about 3 times including a missfire and taken my car in, I do not have a BT tool. If you have other mods like an intercooler and etc, of course I would not recommend this, only if your can bring your ride back to stock.

Thanks, guys. I can't do repairs myself, so I'll have someone change my spark plugs. That seems like a good place to start. I left an email for a shop in West Palm Beach that works on German cars - so I'll see what they're going to charge me to do the job. Hopefully it's as simple as that. If not, I'll move on to the next thing.

Thanks again!

Sal C.
