So I went for my first oil change to the dealership and disconnected the JB4 prior to going to the dealer...reconnected it when I came back home...Overkill or necessary step? I don’t want my warranty voided...

We have not posted an update for the MINI B38/B48, only BMW side, for now.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your reply. Not sure if you are aware but this same b38/b48 engine is used by bmw 2 series active tourer and grand tourer. Knowing your work on the main b48 3 series your input to this section could potentially increase the community interests across both the 2 series and the mini product lines.
I see the difference in performance between this variant and the main b48; hoping you can show some of your magic here too.

Keep up the great work and keen to test your S4 development as per your email.

Hi,
My local tuner ask me to get an WMI kit for the F56S B48 before custom tune the Mini, so Im looking to buy a WMI kit from BMS, anyone can guide what nozzle is the right one to buy from their store, is the lastest jb4 firmware capable to handle WMI? Any other important tips to consider?
Thanks for your help!

I had a lot of CEL's the last two weeks. No power loss, also no fault in the BC. Just the yellow CEL.
If I scan it I got the code 1212 (No description found)

also if it's cold outside, the engine doesn't work smooth in the 2nd & 3th gear for some seconds when I start driving.

If I deactivate the JB4 (Map0) everything is fine....


So for me the JB4 is crap and I will sell it and go with a real tune (Software).
Also the service from Burger is really bad here at the Mini section.

Oh and also the JB4 App doesn't work correct, it doesen't show the oil and water temp.

Sorry you are having issues with the tune on the car, but we can't do much unless we get
install photos for the JB4, bluetooth kit and data log.

Why you need install photos?? The JB4 runs good for about 3-4 months, and now I have the CEL all day!
