540 Dinan Chip Question - Are there issues

I'm considering buying a 2003 540 with the dinan chip.

Any history with this causing additional maintenance issues?

All help appreciated

Dinan is a very well respected tuner for BMW. I don't even think that it will void your warranty when installed by an approved technician, not that it's hard anyways.

The Dinan chip in mine has been in for years, still running like a champ.
