So I guess Dinan isn't such a great value ... IMO.
from what i understand, the Dinan is recognized by BMW dealers, thus it will be hassle free during service. So try not to think you got a bad buy. I think the Dinan was a great choice. Just don't blow your turbo..

For people with JB4's and COBB's, (and other mods) which are not recognized by the dealers and could or would be a huge hassle to prove that these mods do not affect the vehicle. Which could void the warranty, depending on your contract.

i am not exactly sound with how all this works, but myself will be getting a COBB soon, and just un-install it before servicing. Which would be nice to leave it in, but don't want to take chances with the dealer. And to top it all off, I got California SMOG laws.
