If you haven't driven anything Dinan, you have NO room to speak.
I mean, it speaks for itself. Their exaust...is throaty, deep....
IMO, Dinan is in it's own world. First thing that comes to my mind when mentioning BMWs....is Dinan.
They go hand in hand. AND, the most tuned BMWs that come in ARE Dinan.
They also appreciate the car's value. True, true. If you need to ask more about this. Remind me of the e39 M5 story.
I absolutely love my Dinan mods!!
Couldn't agree more here! After 25+ years of proven engineering and manufacturing of high performance wares exclusively for BMWs (and now Minis also), Dinan is arguably North America's premier aftermarket tuner.
Dinan command top $$ for their unquestioned engineering prowess, exhaustive R & D and product testing. Their product offerings have earned nothing less than critical acclaim from everyone important it seems - including the respect and accolades of many independent motoring nuts such as BIMMER Magazine, Car & Driver, Motor Trend, Auto Week, Roundel, Road & Track, and even the prestigious Robb Report.
More to the point though, Dinan is the ONLY aftermarket tuner fully approved by BMW of North America. This includes a FULL 4-year factory warranty in addition to the full warranty offered by BMW of NA. For me, after recently purchasing my new E60 5 series, it was a no-brainer going with Dinan.
Their quality is beyond reproach, backed by a full warranty to boot and even BMW's NA's own blessing to "proceed ahead" without compromising or violating their own warranty. As you can see in my sig, I've done a few Dinan mods below. I absolutely love the end results and never looked back. I get compliments and praises wherever I go also, though I tried damn hard to keep the car incognito and 'sleeper' like.
It's definitely more car than I'll ever need or could use now!!!
To me, Dinan is both the smart and only way to go, particularly if you're talking modding a new BMW (unless of course you go the full european tuner route such as AC Schntzer, Hamann, etc.) .
BMW of NA is very strict about their warranty coverage in light of aftermarket mods. You're taking a big chance of voiding the existing new car warranty going with anything less than Dinan. Hope this helps. BEST REGARDS ALL,
