Ok. So I installed the JB+. I set just over default. And WOW! Do I feel the difference? Is water wet? Does a bear crap in the woods? I swear it feels like an extra 100 lb/ft torque!!

Getting a JB+ !

Just ordered JB+ for my 335i coupe. Super excited! Can't wait to see the power gains. Anyone think I should upgrade anything? It says bone stock is fine for up to 5-6 more psi. Anyone?

WHat would happen if one were to for example, accidently pour about 1/2 cup of brake fluid into the power steering fluid in a 5 series? Theorectically speaking?:eek:

Can you guys tell me what oil is best for my 06 550i during the winter? I saw that 0w-40 is recommended but also 5w-30, even 10W-30. Which would you use for my 550i which burns a little oil??
