And when anyone needed to verify if buying your car if it's a legit Dinan, Dinan would tell them it's not.
My point is that badge is only valuable to you. Now that anyone can buy them counterfeit (like what you want to do), no one thinks much of just the badge alone. Most people who know what Dinan is know what's a legit car and what not legit. So it being sold as a Dinan Stage X isn't going to happen with just the badge.
I't wont be officially registered through dinan but its still dinan car.... I mean its not like I'm saying its a dinan car because I have a badge... i actually will have the parts and you can see them in plain view...shoot you can kinda even see the dinan lettering on the intake in my csl intake hole...

If you have a 10 point Dinan car, used parts or new....to me it is still a Dinan car. Just my 2 cents. I love Dinan stuff, the programming you have to get....no way around it. I like the floor mats, interior guy here, real plush. I sold a Dinan air box, got a Gruppe M, once I got the CF GTR hood, went back to the Dinan air box for water protection.

Really guys, for F&R STB, intake, exhaust....all used, not expensive. I think the average price of F&R Dinan STB are about $500 used, intake, about $200 used, not much for those few things. Then the expensive stuff goes for the tuning......trans tuning, and other things.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE RICH TO OWN DINAN STUFF!!!!! Get it used if you can and it is good quality stuff. Just my opinion.

And as the E46 continues to get older...the Dinan E46 prices will continue to fall.
