I have 5 points as well. I contacted Dinan and they said that you needed to show your authorized Dinan dealer a copy of each receipt detailing your purchases.

Now if they only had anything worth buying......

400$ for a cone filter and tube.
400$ for a metal bar with bolts on the end.

If they were 200$ each, maybe I would think about it.

Do you have their Stage 1 software? Did you notice a difference when you got it?

i got everything little by little too.. i love the stuff haha... each stage i've done so far made a difference i did just the basic chip with exhaust and the auto trans chip.... then did stage 2 and the intake... then front strut brace then dinan suspension stage one with camber plates... then anti-rolls and rear strut brace... so really i have a Dinan-S with stage 3 dinan suspension... none of the pics in my sig reflect the new suspension

the 15% off sale includes suspension...which the 20% off sale did not... i must say the suspension is really well balanced... its like has multiple personalities almost haha really interesting i love it haha

For what you get...dinan is too expensive. What is the one most useful dinan product for the price? Throttle bodies?

it's really meant to be bought as a complete system... its really not about making the car crazy fast... but more like it fixing all the short falls of the stock car and boosting the all around performance... the suspension is pretty unreal... haha its so well balanced... and its got really good ride... when you are on rougher roads its a little bit more rough than stock sport suspension but its very livable day to day... and in the canyons and on the freeway it becomes like a different animal... its sooo balanced... i was going like 140 the other night on the freeway and like the car just has so much more control... you can really tell that they took the time to really develop the suspension... i mean by no means is it really a track set up but for rough canyons and ever day driving its really great... it just feels really good to drive... Its like the car really sucks itself to the road... like it keeps making you want to drive faster and faster... and you can actually control the car with the throttle too... yes it is expensive... for sure... but the car feels like it came off the line this way... its the car bmw should have built in the first place
the set up is so meticulous they even tune the tire pressures and the alignment settings... its great stuff... just expensive... i bought everything slowly over a period of a few years..... lightweight wheels highly recommended... everything about the car is then magnified im running ARC-8 17x8.5s (about 17 pounds a piece equaling about a 30 pound unsprung weight reduction)

I passed on the Stage 1 and went straight to Stage 2. It was a little difference but with the high altitude up here hard to really tell. I think the biggest free mod I could do for easy HP gains would be just to drive down to a lower elevation.

Then you have not checked into BMW Performance item prices if you look at prices. Have you owned any Dinan products? Are you talking from personal experience, or are you just saying they are too expensive for your bank account?

speaking of BMW Performance.... I also have the bmw performance front control arms those are great too...

You wanna play this game again?
I can get something cheaper and better than every singly Dinan product you own.

$7312.60 for what? A "cup kit," some software, a 3.15 diff that you can get for like $200 used TOPS, an intake, sway bars, and a badge....

For $7000, I can get a 3.15, AST 5200's, H&R/hotchkis sway's, AA supercharger, and hell more and still be <$7000.
Sure it's nice if you want a kit that "supposed" to work together, but there is no way you can argue it's the best deal out there.
