But aren't you ordering 35d? The JB Stage 1 is only for 35i.

Mein Auto: ?
Are these detectable by dealerships even when removed in case of warranty issues ?
Would love to get one but local dealership here is pretty anal.

There is only 2 plugs that can be easily removed if your dealership is anal about it. Once you remove it, dealer will not be able to detect anything.

Hi -

Can you let me know how to go about purchasing and installing the JB1? Is this something that most shops can do for you or will you need to see a BMW specialist?

I know answers to these questions are probably only a thorough search away but appreciate you helping me take the easy way out!

Your f15 looks amazing BTW - love the brakes!

agmnyc,

I drove my F10 today. I will take a picture and do a DIY thread on the JB4 tomorrow.
Installation wise, you should be able to do it if you know how to use a screw driver and have a torx bit.

You don't need to unplug anything. Just use a N55 Juice Box Performance Tuner software and a special cable that connects to the juice booster. set Boost to "0". This will bring the car back to stock...
