Buy a tune? If you don't plan on going crazy with mods ( just an intake), I'd suggest getting MHD flash. ~ U$80.

If you want a custom tune with that PM Trebila.

The JB4, Cobb and MHD have differences.

JB4: Just read all the posts on this site

Cobb: You can pick up a used v2 or v3 between $200-$400. This is a handheld device that comes with a cable to plug into your OBD. There are preloaded (OTS) maps for our cars or you can choose to selt-tune. I believe most of the tuners have left Cobb and shifted over to MHD. But if you are just looking for a simple tune that works, then this is for you. If you want to alter anything then you should head over to MHD.

MHD: You need to purchase an android device and download the application from Google Play. Then purchase in-application products, like the maps. Flasher Modules costs $100, then Maps run $49/each. This is the price list for MHD is this, but you also need to purchase the K+Dcan cable which costs $40.

Flasher module: $99
MHD map packs: $49 each. Requires the Flasher module.
Monitor module: $69
Increased boost limit (from 18 to 22 PSI) module: $49. For custom tuning purpose. Requires the Flasher module.
JB4 backends only flasher: $79. Upgradable for $20 to the full $99 flasher module.

The cost between MHD and Cobb are pretty much equal.

I also have a 535 and use the Cobb v2 which I purchased way before MHD launched. I do have an android device but the Cobb tune suits me just fine as I do not tweak anything and just wanted the added boost. Remember that we have a 535, not a 335, so be careful as repairs are super expensive and I hope you have an aftermarket warranty. If not re-fi your car through PenFed and pick-up there RT 66 warranty.

Oh, and just pick up the BMS cone intakes, they will suit you fine. No need to pay up for AFE or Injen.

What repairs are you referring to in terms of 535 vs 335? I thought both had the n54 engine? Is there differences between them?

They are the same, but I have been told that there is an "upcharge" for a 535 as stealerships and indys think you have more loot than someone coming in with a 335.

I do all of my own work on all of my vehicles. If something breaks I'll fix it. I just picked up this 535xi wagon yesterday. It's an 08 with 137k miles so no warranty of dealerships for me

Awesome congrats! These are some of the issues I faced, valve cover gasket and oil filter housing gaskets, valve cover, coils, VANOS units/cam.

Keep changing out your oil more frequently than BMW tells you, like every 4k-5k miles.

Here's a Cobb V2 for $275 if you go that route: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1274130
