Anyone have this?

"M3 Performance Engine Software

The software provides improved performance and driveability, as well as removing the top speed governor. Dinan's Software Engineers have re-programmed the "EML" or drive-by-wire system in order to provide the driving enthusiast with moderately quicker throttle response in the "Normal" mode, as well as more linear throttle response in the "Sport" mode for improved driveability at the car's handling limit. With the top speed governor removed, the car is now capable of achieving 167 mph in fifth gear; the tall sixth gear ratio provides a "theoretical top speed" of 201 mph.

The software also raises the factory rev-limit by 150 rpm (8150 rpm) in order to provide additional road speed in each gear, as well as improved performance driveability.

WASTE OF MONEY.....

Only thing its gonna do is give you a higher potential top speed. And where, when, and how often would you be breaking 167mph anyways?

But since they give you like a 30 day money back guarantee, I guess it couldnt really hurt to try it out. But Raising the redline another 150rpm doesnt really sound like that much of a big deal.

On an M3, as sweet as they are, raising the redline might be the kiss of death.

A friend of mine has it; he said he felt it was worth it. It makes the throttle response a lot quicker and finely tuned (normal is like "sport" and sport is crazy) It also changes the powerband a little, making it a little more useable. Is it worth 300? I dunno. However, my dinan dealer has a money back gaurantee on stuff like that, if you dont like it they will remove it.

wait till the stage 4 software comes out in march - do some searches and you will find that dinan is releasng a new package with suspension, stage 4 software, throttle bodies, etc... that takes it to 360 something...

in my case I am thinking about getting the throttle bodies and software as I have everything else already...

I was curious if this software would counter the adaptive throttle response that the OBD2s have in the E46s...

I'd like to see a Dinan CAI / Software. Throttle body? Don't M3s have individual throttle bodies for each cylinder? So you would have to replace all 6 of them? :dunno:
