The Jb3 2.0 and Procede V4 both have 15 day trial periods so I would suggest trying both and then returning the one you like least. You will like both as they are both great tunes. The jb3 is cheaper and still gives you a ton of power and datalog capabilities. Procede is a little more expensive but gives you alot of capabilties some of which include AT launch control, in dash boost gauge (in development), auto tuning, safety features, and more.I own both and my personal preference is for the Procede V4 hands down it offers very linear power and you can't beat its features. Good luck with your search they are both awesome tunes.

I suggest you first purchase a dictionary. Then you should try reading the sticky about tunes.

Need a BT Tool if comparing the JB3 with a Procede, add another $287
JB3 PNP is $579 on their site
Total = $866

I think you can get a Procede new for $945

Read the Sticky "N54 Tune Comparison Chart (Detailed)". You can compare different tunes available for your 335i.

In order of best bang for the buck
#1 Tires - Don't use the stock RFT's . $100-$200 per tire
#2 Tune - pick your poison, I wont get into that argument $500-$1000
#3 Downpipes - AR makes quality pipes $700 You can get other brands for less
#4 FMIC - ER, Helix, HPF, AMS, Stett all very good choices $700-$1000
#5 Intake - DCI's are the best bang for the buck $100, CAI's cost more for very little power gains $400
#6 Exhaust - AE's quality, sound, looks, and power is hard to beat $1700
#7 Meth - Only reason I posted this last is because you have to be spraying for the power. Check out Coolingmist or Devil's Own $250-$400

That's about $5,000 if you install all the parts yourself, which is easily done (except for the DP's).

Great suggestion. I wish I had done this right away, a pothole ended up showing me why (besides the bad performance of the RFTs)

For #2 & #7 if you end up with a Procede, Vishnu makes a meth system for the V4. $845 I think, might be less for forum members or if you bought as a package with the Procede. http://www.vishnutuning.com/methanol.htm

btw, love the car, I wish I could've gotten a coupe but with a baby the sedan sure is easier

You won't be putting down 500 rwhp unless you get full bolt-ons, meth, 75 shot, and or upgraded turbos (EPL?). Most guys with full bolt-ons, like the ones in my sig, may hit 460 rwph with MS109 fuel on a custom race map.
