My Ride: 2002 BMW330i Dinan 3
My 2002 330i Dinan 3

Just thought I would make a quick post and say "Hey". Have had my car a couple months and she acreams like a stripe assed ape! No tickets so far.

First BMW and what a fun ride, getting ready to place a bluetooth Torque Pro OBDM ll unit onboard so it is easier to monitor things without going to the mechanic. Will be getting my Sig-O a white 2001 328i in March. Wanted to include a picture of my engine compartment too, but cannot rotate the picture :-(

Peace Out

I think if you accumulate 10 dinan points you get a badge and then after that it becomes a dinan 3 lol

answer to dinan question

Dinan Cold-Air throttle body
Dinan performance chip
Dinan front strut cross-member
Dinan Pedals
Cat Back Exhaust
K&N filter

The "mudflaps" prevent gravel from chipping paint as I live in remote hi-plains where I do not have to put up with people and their dumb-a$$ opinions.

My Ride: 2003 325i 4dr sedan
My 2003 325i

Hi all here is my 2003 325i. I had a 1995 325i e36 before this but decided to sell it when I moved and got a upgrade this past april. The previous owner did any modifications on the car. Im not much a DIYer I just enjoy BMWs. The only thing I have done to it is put a aux cord in it which is probably the easiest mod you can do. I am hoping the people on this forum will help me figure out what to do with the car. Im a college student so I havent had the money to do any mods but Im taking the semester off and working so Ill have a couple bucks to go towards improving the vehicle

My Ride: 2002 BMW330i Dinan 3
In regards to the BMW "enthusiasts" who think Angel eyes, clear corners, RCR tail-lights and maybe wheels make your car really something....and then have the nerve to slam someone who feels truly blessed and humbled to be able to drive such an awesome piece of machinery.

That being said, let this "newb" inform the snot-nosed enthusiasts who had nothing more than back-handed comments re: the Dinan Badge and what it represents. Steve Dinan has been manufacturing performance upgrades to BMW's since 1979. One member claimed to be able to purchase a Dinan Badge for $40.....Sorry, you talk out your a$$. After a Dinan upgrade is purchased and installed by authorized BMW service center it is registered and your badge will be sent from Dinan and placed by the dealer.

I am very busy and have little time to educate ignorance, but if you are interested in spending your time to educate yourself the website is dinancars.com. I know there are very knowledgeable people who exchange know-how & expertise on this site, but I have no time for folks who just run their mouth to self-impress, and I did not make a blanket statement. Enjoy your site.
