Dinan Stage 3

This was the email I got from my service adviser this morning:

"Dinan software is loaded, and Forman just test drove your car. He was speechless."

Needless to say I'm excited to get my car back. Anyone else have this, and with what exhaust?

P. S. I have a 2013, so the Dinan software is working for them, it just doesn't if you have the 2013 550 GT because it has that new engine thing I'm forgetting the name of.

Do you know what your extra hp gains was from your exhaust? I have a feeling it must be a bit different for different exhausts. I have the meistershaft one, which they say adds 40 wheels hp by itself. If this is the case I should get quite a bit from stage 3 I would think. I'm going to go to an AWD dyno at some point in the next few weeks though to get some concrete answers.

Right here, dude. I have a 2013 550i M Sport 6mt...went with stage 2 first for a couple weeks, then decided that the car was just too quiet, and upgraded to stage 3 with the Dinan exhaust. It rocks!

I love it. Joe at Performance Technic has it on his Dinan Stage 4 as well.

The sound is perfect for my taste...a bit deeper than stock when at idle and under 3k rpm, but deep and mean when you get on it. You really have to hear it in person to appreciate the sound.

I had an Exhaust built for my 2012 550I. It drowned inside the car. Does the Dinan exhaust drown inside the car..?

For what it's worth, the Meisterschaft GTC sounds VERY AMG in person (when the valves are open).

Great to see another local here. Can I ask where did you get the stage 3 set-up in town and the Dinan software loaded? Schomp BMW? Because of the limited tuning of the 535, I'm planning to trade her in for a 550 and would love to have it staged asap. Please PM me total costs of the stage 3, Dinan software and the service advisor I can contact. Maybe we can meet sometime. I would love to experience a tuned 550. Please post some vids if anything. Sounds like a beast.

I will do one big post of my car in a few weeks after I dyno it and get a few last things done. That will be my first and largest wave of mods. I case anyone else from Denver is curious I got it Murray Motors, but I'll PM you the rest.
