Wink Dinan S3 550i Article

Buddy of mine just sent this to me. Great read. Enjoyed it a lot and couldn't agree more. Dinan packages take the car to what should have been available as an option from the factory. Yes it is available from the dealership [if they offer Dinan products] and I am sure any BMW Client Advisor worth his weight in gold would be happy to add them to your final sales sheet. But still it seems the F10 550i chassis offers a lot for those willing to tune it to improve a pretty nice product in hand. If they ever offer something for the F10 M5 wow it'll probably make an even great car...that much better.

Well enjoy...and please lend your comments/experiences/pros and cons are all appreciated.

I've had Dinan before in my E90 and enjoyed every minute of it. The power was extremely linear throughout. Better IMO than any piggyback (I had both). I can just imagine the power on the 550i S3.

However, with such a steep price, I think I'd rather have an M5 off the bat.
