It works flawlessly, I'm using Map1 as I have no other modifications.

I put the Stage 2 on my AH3 after installing the Dinan CF intake, ran Map 2 after getting comfortable on Map 1, and blew my charge pipe. Luckily, I was close to home and drove home under electric power (whoo!) with no problem. I got an ER charge pipe, which is sweet, put it back on Map 2 for a bit and no problem. I added the Meisterschaft mid-pipe back and changed to Map 5 and have had 0 issues (aside from traction) since.

Charge pipe is a must with map 2 or higher power

Hmmmmm on my acceleration video I timed 11s from 0-170 (stock). So I'm not sure if the BMS Stage 1 is worth it for the AH3.
Have you made a new video with the new mods?

It just scared me. Probably I will sell JB4 for now.

After 3 days, my car was serviced by BMW. They said they had to replace fuel pump. Covered by warranty fortunately.
A number of AH3 owners have had fuel pump failures, so not the JB4.

Technically it a sensor on the low pressure fuel pump that fails, throwing an error code that throws the car into limp mode.

BMW does not have a sensor replacement so one has to swap out the entire fuel pump due to he sensor failure.

Hi, JB4 map 5 here with Akrapovic exhaust and BMC air filter on the intake side, no issues to report, no codes anything. I have the bluetooth extension on JB4 to monitor everything and switch maps easily ln the iphone.

So you didn't need a new chargepipe or downpipe etc? I thought those were required with JB4 if you didn't want to blow the OEM parts and bit throw error codes?

Also, seeing yours is a 2014, do you have an EWG?

Finally, off topic, do you have the automatic Anti-Dazzle Halogen Headlights?

JB4 allows for progressive mods, map 1 is designed for added performances on a fully stock car for instance, map 5 is auto learning and will adjust to engine parameters, probably benefitting of the exhaust/intake mods i put on. I don't plan on other engine mods for now, i've got the power I need.

Things I like about JB4 is:
- it uses all engine parameters to determine appropriate boost - gear, rpm, oil temp and more than that, protecting the engine in lower gears, or when it's cold.
- it can evolve with my future mods if any
- it's got bluetooth extension
- and a wide community of users for support

Indeed i have EWG, it's a 12/2013 production / 2014 Model Year car.

And yes I do have anti dazzle too.
