TMC or JB1 Tune

Post by Locko » Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:07 pm

Hi all i am new to the forum i bought a M135i a few months back, just don't know what route to take i am planning on upgrading next year to an M2 or M4 but just wanted to give my M135i a bit of a boost. Not planning on any mods just remap car is still under warranty so don't want to affect this? So removable map is better? Read a few people saying on this that the fuel cap issue with tmc as in its running to lean is this true? If not is a Jb1 the way to go or tmc? Thanks

Can't go wrong with the JB4, it might be a touch more expensive but gives you a large amount of adjustability, and when it comes around to taking it off, they tend to hold their value quite well :)

Aye, JB4 shop or ML Performance are the places to get it from, I used ML Performance, they are a forum sponsor, and I've always had the best service - if it's in stock, next day delivery

Okay cheers however wouldn’t a jb1 be more beneficial if I am not going to modify it any further than a stage 1? & quite a margin cheaper? Just curious
