This would be really nice....however ill be with the 300HP for a while.
Sometimes I wish I went with the 550. I'd figure the 535 would have a tune already (I know there is Burger), especially from Dinan!
Oh well, it is what it is!

Other mod I am now hoping to get is Active Autowerke tune (which is still at the testing stage for about 1 year now)
Coilover sounds nice!
What is the difference between the Dinan and Active Autowerke? Im guessing price?
Pull the trigger on the Dinan. I know its cost $$$ but you will be pulling hard

^

Dinan - $4000+ (labor & taxes incl.)
Active Autowerke - estimate $1500 (installed)

AA's tune is projecting to be about 1/2 of the increased advertised of Dinan. Therefore, for my 550, AA would be about +50hp & +50 lbft tq gain.

Sorry, not crazy enough to spend $4000 on a tune. I just need a modest bump in power.

A blogger here just got his 535 tune with JB3 last nite by Mike (N54tuning) and I just had lunch with this blogger and he said the power bump is very noticeable but not yet tested to its full potential.

Really?
I had the burger tune and sold it before I installed it!
Maybe I should have tried it out

*Updated initial post*

I know its not Brembo or StopTech, but this is good for now and will offer a different look behind the wheels going on.

Was thinking red...nah!
Then Bronze/Orange....nah (other members are doing it or just did it as we speak)!
Lets go black!
Goes with the theme

How long before you get your ride back on the road? The wait would be making me lose some serious sleep.
