I was under the impression that most cars couldn't run the JBD at 100% either without throwing a code?
I am not sure about which maps/settings trigger codes/limp on European cars, but I did a little digging around in the UK section on e90 post and many users experienced the same thing depending on map/setting. What I seemed to gather is that the limp/ses lights occur with high frequency.

As for the JBD, its hit or miss. Some can run it at 100% without issue while others can't. I run it at 100% all of the time. Once every few months it triggers limp mode.
