its an '08 with 46,000 miles. I've had the car for 6 months and haven't replaced coils or sparks or anything besides oil and coolant so I have no idea what was done prior

Plan on doing plugs at a min then. You can order them here along with the socket to change them: http://www.burgertuning.com/N54_BMW_...t_adapter.html

@Olilef, yes, you can unplug the Cobb once you're done with the flash, of if you have the V3 you can run it as a display/gauges.

I still have a hard time which route to go....

I guess there has been some changes for COBB, too in terms of available maps since 2012 on n54 vehicles.... And of course there is a Pro Tune which seems also nice in terms of adaption based on actual tunes made to the car...

My e93 335i (late 2009 model) ist completely stock at the moment.
It ran 35k miles by now - bought it with 25k Miles on the clock.


ATM:
I just want a tune over stock, so i don't think JB4 or COBB is wrong for that.... (JB4 Stage 1 or Cobb Stage 1 (sport/aggressive))

--> But I know myself quiet well... And I'll go quiet fast for the following Mods:

-Wagner EVO1 FMIC
-COBB Catted ***
-COBB AirFilter in Stock Airbox
(Open Intakes like BMS DCI or CAIs are not fun if the police pop the hood in the country i live in...)
-COBB Chargepipe
-BMW Performance Exhaust

But that will be it - No Meth or Turbo replacements planned...
Witt that from reading I should safely (as far as it goes xD) be able to run Stage 2's (COBB or JB)

I've read a lot around the whole debate JB4 vs COBB, etc.
each has there advantages and disadvantages....

I'm just wondering for people who run "both"...
Why is that? What is behind that combination?
How do they benefit from each other?

You are way out of touch with the current progress on n54 tuning. There is no reason to get Cobb anymore. It is either jb4 or MHD, or both.

I really missed MHD... in all those threads found through google...
hmmm... seems i need to find an Android Device for it...

So i might Sell the COBB then on ebay if it is that useless now...
So i do some research on MHD to get "smarter"... thanks for pin-pointing!

Arn't flash tunes safer for your car compared to the JB4? As in the transmission isn't expecting anything higher than 300 torque?

For the boost levels people run JB4 only at, flash only tunes have not proven to be any more reliable. But these days most who are serious about performance load a free JB4 back end flash file: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20563
