The BMS Stage 2 has been incredibly reliable and the performance for value is second to none, in this economy, he's right. I fail to see your logic.

Lol... driving a 2011 335i that cost over $50k, having a great tune for it and now needing to trade it for a cheaper tune to accommodate a cheaper meth kit. No one sees anything funny or inherently wrong with that?

Price isn't everything. To be honest it has nothing to do with money, it has to do with vishnus shitty customer service. They don't give a fuck about the N55 guys and I understand it completely. Terry responds to emails in less than 30 minutes and his shop is 20 minutes away so if i have any problems or need help its that easy. The procede is great, I've had it for a long time now and its been fun but i think its time for something new. The only reason i got the procede is because of the N54 version where updates kept coming out and it kept improving. Whereas they are to busy with the singles now and we haven't had an update in many months , and don't ever come to the N55 side.

Vishnus main concern is the n54 because they finally made a single turbo kit after having the car for 6 years.
What attention has bms given the n55 that vishnu hasn't?

You should stick around a little longer. Robert told me they are going to be working on the n55 pretty soon like this week/ next week.

^ lol the n55 was offered on 2011 cars, do you really expect a turbo upgrade this soon?

I've had a few customers jump ship to the JB4 lately for various reasons. You really can't go wrong with it. They tell me it's smoother, has better features, is as fast or faster, easier to install/remove, less expensive meth kit that is easier to install/remove, better supported, etc. BMS runs their N54 and N55 development in parallel so every time a new feature comes out for the N54 if possible it is added to the N55 at the same time. Just the
other day they added TPMS delete support for the N55 JB4. And let's not forget the N55 JB4 holds the track and dyno records for the N55 so the raw performance is there too for those who are in to that sort of thing.

thanks for the info Mike. Yeah the JB is really nice. 2 of my friends have it and have had 0 problems, which is another attraction
