I've been wondering the same thing. Aren't they all the same? shouldn't the previous ones work on the current 5?

I emailed Sprint Booster to see if current one is compatible with 2011 528i. Don Racine replied with "Thanks for asking, yes it works great!" I guess nothing has changed...

Update: Recieved following email from Ken from Sprint Booster.

"Thank you for your interest with the Sprint Booster.

Unfortunately, we have not completed tesing on the 2011 5-Series.

We hope to have this available sometime this summer."

according to jaekeem, the jb3 has a setting inside that can adjust the throttle response, so if you are going to get the JB i would hold off on getting the SB. i installed mine since i got it for free from my friend.

http://www.sprintbooster.us/FAQ.html

Sprint Booster is engineered to enhance the driving experience by providing increased acceleration time (eliminating delay) on drive-by-wire cars by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal and providing the ECM (Electronic Control Module) with a new and altered signal for much quicker response. Sprint Booster improves response, increases pedal input sensitivity and delivers more impressive off the line performance you can really feel.


Sprint Booster benefits are felt in the low to mid pedal travel. Some people don't like the fact that Sprint Booster reaches full throttle before full pedal travel - if you routinely mash the throttle to the floor, Sprint Booster may not be for you.

Sprint Booster is most effective in the low to mid rpm range, which is where most 'street' cars are driven on a daily basis. Yes, you may need to adjust your driving style after installing Sprint Booster - but that is a short learning curve. Sprint Booster will put the 'fun' back into your daily drive.

78mao,

Which model are you using? Sprint booster told me they don't have anything for a 2011 5-series.

I emailed the makers of Juice Box about this and was told:

"You can just wear heavier shoes.

The JB adds power but we don't change the throttle pedal to throttle
blade ratio."

Sprint Booster site includes 2011 5 series now. I'm thinking of buying it to see if it gets rid of the jerkyness from a stop on my 528...

Please report if this works with JB Stage 1. I would hate to spend that kind of money on a FAIL.
