Dinan Question

I know that in order to get the Dinan badge & serial #, you have to rack up points form Dinan purchases. But what if you purchased Dinan parts, only not through Dinan ?? Say you purchased Dinan parts through here or ebay?? Is there a way to get credit through Dinan for those parts or does it just not count ?

i bet you could take it to a certified Dinan dealer/installer and have them sell you one, if you had enough points or whatever.

there is no charge for the dinan badge. to get a serial number you have to buy a dinan package with the car brand new off the lot . if you buy dinan parts here and there and get enough points you contact dinan and they will tell you how to get the badge. any other info just check dinan web site. lots of great parts. i love mine

They won't sell it to you, unless you have the receipts for all the parts when bought new. Just do what I did (I only have 7 points lol), buy it on ebay, they come up ferquently.

You sure about that? I have the serial number but my car started out as a lease/fleet vehicle. Seems unlikely they'd slap a dinan kit on that.

not true. i contacted dinan and they guy i spoke with gave me his email address and said take pics of all the parts and submit the form and they would send me out a badge ( i have 12 points). and for the serial number thats what i was told from a forum member. maybe you can get the serial number buy just buying a dinan package. best thing to do is contact dinan and ask them.

As long as you have enough points (10 points) you can get the badge installed at any authorized Dinan dealer. I do not have 1 single new Dinan part on my car with a receipt and the dealer installed my badge after seeing all the parts and installing the software.
