Interested, since I haven't heard much (personally) on the N55 Dinan route. Do you mind me asking how much it was for the entire thing? How much torque are you making? "More than an M5", really!? wow dude!!

Well, it's 2k for the tune. 55 HP and something like 101 torque. I was told by the Dinan rep that with 93 octane, Stage 2, and their free flow exhaust I am making more torque than an M5. Not sure if this is true, just going by what he told me. Now HP, that is another story
Hopefully other N55ers and Stage 2 with the Dinan exhaust folks can chime in with more info?
All I can say for sure is that it is completely daily driver when you want it to be, and a fucking bat out of hell when you need it to be.
The warranty and peace of mind of walking into any BMW dealer and getting service and warranty work done without worrying they're going to find my piggyback tune and void me just works for me.
Many will say I got raped, some will call me a baller- I say I am 110% happy and satisfied with this car now

It's amazing to me that anyone would criticize you for the choice you made. Who pays 40-50k for a car then buys a cheap tune with no warranty for it?

I can understand going the cheap route with a used car or one that's no longer under warranty, and I can even understand those who have advanced experience with tuning and working on cars going a less expensive path because they know the limits of their engines and what is needed to keep it safe. I just don't get the average Joe buying a new, expensive BMW and tossing in a cheap tune right away.

Great

Some people have different goals than others. I was considering the dinan but for me for the same amount of money I could be making considerably more power but with more risks. My car has already gone through so much so wth lol. I am receiving my meth kit tommorow and a dyno on Wednesday or Thursday

That's surprising! You'd think you guys would have more access to all the cool toys
For 5 series folks, Dinan is really the only option...for now

You said no drone with the Dinan exhaust. Do you have a catless DP or are you stock. I know that would make a difference in drone.

Absolutely stock. I could never tolerate it otherwise

I mean, there is a mild note on highway speeds around 2000-2500 RPMs, but not NEARLY as bad as the PE was. This exhaust is more civilized for sure, but will make heads turn when you step on it
