I installed the BimmerTech MMI myself and it's honestly not that hard, really required about 1 hour of time if I had to do it again.

If you mention Bimmerpost over the phone the labor rate is $99/hr
Hmm I called to ask about some services and mentioned the forum but didn't get the rate mentioned above so I ended up going elsewhere. EJ was nice enough to offer inspecting my car after I purchased though.

You have to remind him at times that it shows $99/HR on Bimmer Post.

Just had EJ install my intake for me. Super down to earth guy!

He managed to squeeze me on the same day I called and did the install promptly at a super fair rate. He even refused to take my tip because it was more than the price he gave me initially.

Dude is super knowledgeable about BMWs and a very honest technician. I'd recommend coming here for whatever you need done. He's got a new customer with me.

Soon, the shop will be offering JB4 installs and water-meth installs and i will personally be the one setting up the water-meth with the JB4 in-case anyone is interested and hesitant about the DIY.

I may be interested in the future. Trying to figure out a plan to hold me over until a flash is available for the B48 so I can have a DP installed without throwing a CEL. I know this engine has more potential in it somewhere!

All you really need is the back-end flash with a JB4 or you can run a down-pipe with a 90 degree o2 spacer to prevent a CEL from getting triggered.

I don't think there's a back-end flash I could run with JB4 for the B48 yet, is there?

I considered DP with an O2 spacer but I figured I might as well do it all at the same time because I read that JB+ with DP provides less-than-optimal results and right now I only have a JB+ installed.

Now were offering JB4 on all BMW makes and models, DP on all make and models, and water-meth installs on the B58/B48. The JB4 and/or water-meth will be personally installed by me. Every wire is secured and installed neatly and tucked away for the most part. I personally recommend having the lines routed from outside and under the car following the fuel lines. Here are some pictures of my setup.
