F10 Dinan LSD available! Also intercoolers too!

Hey gents just found out that Dinan has the LSD avail now for the F10 550i and looks interesting. Anyone taken or plan to take the plunge? If so would be interested in your impressions or thoughts. May have to add this to the Spring/Summer upgrade list!

Check it out..

Also has anyone any experience with their Intercoolers? What exactly is the benefit of doing this upgrade other than improved power/performance? Any cons?

If i had to guess Dinan came out with the LSD now because its using the same one from the M5 but marking it up 300%

You guys should look into this before spending the money.

Yeah $3500 + installation cost and w/ the core exchange of $2500, otherwise its $6k for a LSD? What a ripoff.

I'm doing the intercoolers this week. My understanding is that it is good for the car, no cons at all. Just gives the engine cooler air to breathe.

There is a thread on it in here. I think joe@ptech is the only other forum member with stage 4 so you could reach out to him as well.

Those air-water intercoolers are just a bit bigger than OEM. I dont think those are worth the money unless we get good numbers from the dyno.

Would love to see a comparison dyno for this mod alone.
