No I didnt, "technically speaking", transfer my Dinan badge
I like the 355is badge instead

The gas milage is actually better than stock tune gas milage
based on 100 miles daily driving. However it can drop to 21 mpg if I drive the car over 3k rpms continuously.

It all depends on your right foot, if you drive it gently it will use the same or slightly more gas and if you drive it at wide open it will use more.

I get to 60-80 mph in a snap without having to shift pass 3k RPMs
