You can tell that everyone has their cars now because no one comes back here to talk anymore. LMBO

The majority have gone with the RaceChip. Is this because of the controllable nature of it through the app as opposed to a set ECU tune?

FYI: I heard back from Burger Motorsports sales that JB4 is not available for sale within California due to California's emissions regulations. I will need to confirm that Lap3 and RaceChip are available.

A friend from the BMW community told me that they had a huge problem with the authorities. They automatically deleted check engine lights every three seconds. That's why I would never buy a product from them (even if they stopped doing this, which is probably the case). For me it's a safety issue, but for the authorities it was just an emissions issue. They paid their fine and promised to not sell their products to California anymore.

That sounds like other modifications wer done to the car (likely catless downpipes). I have a jb4 on my BMW, with no changes to the exhaust system. No check engine lights and can pass Illinois emissions when the system is off.

I'm really happy with jb4, would likely add one to a Stinger when I get one.

Anyone know if their tune is locked to the vin or you can sell it afterwards if you get the spare ecu?

It is keyed to your VIN.

I'm going with the JB4, just ordered it, should be here by Friday. Looking forward to it. [rofl]

I got it installed and I do have to say WOW what a difference, I'm impressed with it. I've never chip one of my cars before, I guess I was missing out all these years. [rockon]

Doubt it as I don't see any distributors for the US. Maybe our friends from across the pond have more experience with the company.

The box itself looks somewhat similar to the Racechip one, however judging from the videos and description on the website, functionality/feature wise, it is still behind the JB4.

Ok pulled trigger on jb4 and plugs from Sal...
Be here in couple days. I read a book between forums and Terry's n54 page. Price, support, logging, ease to remove for service, firmware updates and user feedback is what made my decision. For me it became a no brainer!

Assuming there is a link in instructions for firmware update? The feedback on v7 looks so good! Excited to get it going.

Not enough flexibility with it, or what is your thinking on it?

JB4 comes Tuesday but have to go into dealer so have to wait...errg:)

Question: it's my understanding that the fuel wires connect to the O2 sensor side wires. Anyone thought of buying a second O2 sensor and wire harness for eaiser removal, or would it be?
