JB4 Tune Question

Hey all I'm new to the BMW family as well as tuning.

I'm picking up my 335i this week and have been looking into the JB4 tune, just seems like a great product for an amazing price. I wanted to know if there was an optimal time to hook up the tune. With being such a new engine with less than 20 miles on it would it be ideal to wait past the break-in period or is it ok to plug it in right when I get home?

Thanks!

I'm personally going to wait a thousand miles before I do anything. I'll have all my parts just sitting there

That's my plan... well, really I'm waiting for more options. It's not like I'm able to legally use all the power the car currently has anyways.

Its only illegal if you get caught.

And besides there is pleny of time to use all HP's of a car.
Freeway onramp for starters, another is passing a prius that is doing 55 in the fast lane.

do you think we could blame the speed on the car, tell the police officer even though we were going 90 it really feels like 45
