Well, I AM getting the Dinan flash.

I said I'd never do it, because of the price. I changed my mind, bought the Dinan oil cooler, changed my mind again and sold the oil cooler.

Then, I bought another Dinan oil cooler, and scheduled the installation. Will be getting the Dinan flash as well, obviously.

I'll post the review/results of the flash + impressions of the high capacity (cost $$ ) oil cooler after the holiday. Probably will look into getting a dyno done as well. I have a step. sedan, with no sport package.

I've flip-flopped worse than a politican on this one guys. But this is my final decision LOL.

That is an expensive ass oil cooler to have to buy twice. Keep us posted on how you like the flash.

Get the flash.....do you have a stock oil cooler? If so....let us know the benefits of the Dinan over stock Oil Cooler.

Cheers...

Stock brokers and psychologists must love you John Kerry.

BTW, keep us posted. I am a little tired going through Orb's metaphysical debates on dynos.

I'm guessing you don't have the stock oil cooler? If not, did you not get the sport package? If not, I hope you upgraded your wheels and tires. I have trouble putting down the stock power with the tires that came with my sport package. I can't imagine tryting to put down the Dinan tune power in the tires that come without the sport package.

Why not try to get BMW to retrofit their oil cooler.

Or if you can't get them to do it then install the BMW cooler which should be a lot less?

Either way, good luck with the tune.

omg if i see someone ask for another dyno i am gonna!!!

we have some dyno's but people are going nuts...does everyone want 50 dyno's of the same damn tune? holy shiz

if he gets it done great but damn everyone obsessing getting a dyno done with this tune is nuts if that is all they are looking at...this tune is so much more than power...everything is so much more refined..from throttle response to smoothing out the acceleration to every mode with the step feels a million times better with less jerkiness...and even if you had more power it would just go up in smoke and still would if you had an lsd just probably 50% less!! i cannot tell you how many compliments i have gotten from friends and how they cannot belive how much smoother and how much better the car sounds now!!! this tune did wonders for my car!!!! dinan all the way!!! and yes i would love to see dyno's i just hate it when that''s all people care about!!!

Yeah, and just think of the bath he's going to take when he tries to sell the car or trade it in too. WOW!

Good luck with it, hope you plan on keeping your 335i for many years with that Dinan flash, and $300 oil cooler they are charging you $2K for.

I don't know what the motivation is behind your puerile outburst...have I kicked you in the nuts before, or something? Also, since you are so concerned with my decision making, I plan on turning the car in when the lease is up. Does that bother you? Do I have your permission?
