JB+ over JB4?

Post by 5678 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 1:05 pm

After some opinions...

I'm tempted to go for the JB+ on my LCI M135i. The things that appeal:
- Less to connect/remove in the event that I need to at the side of the road.
- I have no interest in going past the basic level of tune and would only ever run the standard maps even if I had the JB4
- It's cheaper.

But there's the nagging that going for the JB-lite option isn't the full blown JB4. Double the cost goes against it massively. The "just in case" task of removing it at the road side being more involved concerns me. But then the risk of codes popping up with the JB+ and not being able to reset them without the laptop also concerns me.

Has anyone else had the same dilemma?

JB+ all day long if that's the case. Like you I wanted a quick to remove module, add to that the great gains in bhp and the low cost, win win.

Would rather the stage 1 personally, but I can see it's appeal.

I read up about the stage 1, I think if I was spending that, then I'd just go for the full jb4.

The plus seems the one.
