Thanks,

I'm sure if you searched you could go crazy with all the information. Each has it pro's and con's.

I'm rocking the JB4:
1)love love love it !!
2)Best piggy back unit i've ever had to deal with.
3)They have been around a while so you can pick one up used for pretty cheap.
4)Steering wheel controls
5)Install is easy as long as you can change a light bulb, you can install the JB4

Thought I'd add this to the Colorado Springs thread. Took my car in to Winslow recently to have the recall done. Per usual, they did a great job (I highly recommend Jason as an advisor and Brian as a technician - they are both excellent, although I've used others and they've been excellent too). I was given a 2013 F30 328i X-Drive as my loaner. Non sport, with Nav, cold weather, 8sp auto and all of 1,100 miles on it.

I came away impressed by it:

Likes:
The new interior - it is definitely an evolution (not a radical change), but very nice nonetheless
The "real" cupholders
Base audio is significantly better than the base audio in my 2010 (which is terrible compared to the Logic7 I had in my 2006 E90)
The new gauge cluster, especially the LCD display in it
4cyl is amazing - couldn't believe how powerful it was, yet it can get awesome gas mileage when driven lightly
The 8sp auto
The Sport/Eco button
All the fun gadgets (eco stuff, sport gauges, etc)

Dislikes:
The shifter drives me nuts. I've had it before in X5s, etc and it drove me nuts there too.
While I really like the layout of the new interior, I did feel it was a small step down in material quality.
I really dislike the way the new Nav display is just sticking out of the dash. I prefer the way it is setup in my E90.
I don't like the change away from the cruise control stalk to steering wheel buttons
The steering was definitely lighter at slow speeds. I'm used to heavier steering now. And I can't say anything about the handling because it is tough to compare a sport package car on Pilot Super Sports to a non-sport package car on run flats.
I really dislike the way the trunk arms work now (major step back from the E90).

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. That drivetrain is excellent, some great ergonomic improvements and only a few misses. I'm impressed.

-Rich

Me too. I had the JB3, I liked the results, but huge pain in the ass to remove and put back on just to go to the dealer for something.

I agree but considering the time it takes to pair and unpair the device, its almost even.

Another thing that i don't like is that cobb data can stay on the ecu even after you un-pair the device.

Just some food for thought

BTW I have a Rennart SS CBE that i'm trying to sell.

I agree with the first one. I think your second comment has been fixed now. And link to the CBE? If not, do you mind PM'ing me more details?

Just FYI - if you want to run the aggressive map, you can get race gas to mix at Chief Petroleum off of 8th street, or E85 from Western Convenience or Kum and Go.

I haven't found a gas station that sells 93oct straight since they stopped selling it at the FarmCrest on 30th and Centennial Let me know if you find one.

I'm thinking about going to Pueblo Motorsports Test 'n Tune this Sunday. Never been, but I wasn't able to make it to Bandimere last weekend, so I'm hoping to head down and try it out. Will you have your Cobb by then?

I been searching endless hours for the right type of exhaust set up i don't think i wanna do catless. does anyone here have a better experience with different exhaust other than youtube? Im really thinking either HPF, BMW PE, or Eisenmann. Its just hard to bring myself to a $2300 for an axle back. Hopefully i can hear them in person at one of the burger nights

I second Winslow is a great place to take your car, despite it being a dealership. They know their shit, and will go out of their way to help you out.

IIRC I can get you a PE for around $1400 installed. It is one of the best sounding sub 3k exhausts, from what I have heard/installed.
