Very nice.  ITs been many years since I've been at the track.
The last time I raced anything was back with my vortech S-trim mustang.

If you want something that's easy to install. Try the cobb accessport. That's what I ran in my 335.

Not sure what you mean by the fault code the JB4 brings? I've never had an issue with a JB4 on my car

hi Rob. K.  I guess its my fault for generalizing.... though simple issues, 3 our of the 4 friends that i know using jb4 somehow during the course had thrown in some codes.  What i dont know is the exact code and if it was somehow caused by the juice box.

Any tune that will increase power output will sooner or later expose the weak parts parts of the engine. Whether it be spark plugs, coils, you name it.
One can't expect to simply double or triple the boost and not expect issues. When stressing parts like that, preventative maintenance is very important.
So in general, any tune will eventually give you codes due to stressing all the components that much more when compared to stock tune.

But for ease of use, I agree with Anthony and get a Cobb Accessport  :)

Cobb has different OTS (Off the Shelf) Maps. You can choose which one you would like to run. Anything from Stage 1 to Race Maps.

http://www.cobbtuning.com/Accessport-Off-The-Shelf-Maps-s/40100.htm#/v/accessport/maps/bmw/IJE0S_IS

I personally wouldn't pay for a Dinan Tune. Very expensive and not much for gains.
If you're worried about breaking things or having car problems, I wouldn't tune at all  :)

Word of warning though, a Stage 1 tune will leave you wanting more. In no time you'll have the mod bug  :D I've heard so many people say I only want a Stage 1 tune and a year later they're Full Bolt On's + Meth haha

It's only $30 for the night Greg! Bring your 335D out, you'd be surprised how good it'll do!
