I think another thing we are over looking is that the fuel in Europe has much higher cetane than in the US. Combine that with all the different versions of software BMW has, differences between the cars themselves and just because those maps trigger codes here doesn't necessarily mean they will elsewhere depending on what those codes are of course.

So I have distilled this down to program 3, map 5 is the useable setting, in which case I would be interested in seeing the hp/torque gains under this setting as compared to the JBD at 100%. I am guessing they are very similar.
I was under the impression that most cars couldn't run the JBD at 100% either without throwing a code?
