I can vouch for the shark injector. Cheaper, you can DIY and unlike the Dinan Tune, it "learns" to adapt to new basic bolton mods.

get the shark i got the shark for my 330xi, i love it. Dinan software is a scam and a half they refuse to put the software in your car without their CAI system etc etc they are a royal pita and i don't have a problem saying it.

Yes, the M56 is supported with the Shark Injector.

You would purchase the later model 325i Shark Injector. It is designed for both the M54 and M56.

Nope. All it does is adjust the engine parameters.
