around and see what others are saying about the install time.

Thanks, BMW of San Diego is convenient for me too, but they are a rip off..
Are there other dealerships in SD that are Dinan authorized dealers?

That's BS! You should print out the page directly from dinan's website. On there it clearly states 1 hour of labor. My dealer told me it may take 3 or 4 hours to install. I told him about dinan's website and what it said. He said if that's how long they say it should take then that is all we will charge you. I was charged one hour of labor AND I got a discount since I was their 1st one
I dropped the car off last night and it was done by noon today. I told him to take as long as he wanted and he could have the car for a few days if he wanted to "play around". It was there 1st flash and he had never even driven in a flashed 335.
He also told me dinan is having "special pricing" until feb.2008 for parts OTHER than the flash

Not total BS....it takes about an hour to set up the car for the flash and for program updates....It takes a good 3-4 hours to do the automated programming. You should only pay for the setup.

Just as with everything else in business, they will charge you for as much as possible if you are not an informed buyer. Show them the Dinan website, and you will only be charged for 1 hour of labor. That simple...

So it is a $2100+ flash. Let's just say that for that price, I am going to be a very informed consumer.

Is it my imagination, or are the HP figures for the Noelle and Dinan tunes exactly the same?

How much kool-aid is there in getting 40 mpg, very cut and dry if you ask me. And when cafe standards are increased in 10 years, guess what you will be driving??

People are forgetting this flash eliminates the speed governor. So if we talk about which chip makes your car technically the fastest... it's the Dinan Flash

You can eliminate the speed limiter with PROcede V2 as well...

FYI - You can easily remove the speed limiter with just 1 extra wire on the PROcede v2, and many ppl have already done it.

Whaddya benching 40-45 pounds?

If I were really after fuel economy, I would be driving a turbo diesel with direct injection, I am sure I can find some 50 mpg cars out there.

I will be driving some 600 hp car, so long as the car companies' average mpg meets a certain target.

Hybrids are a joke.
