...A HUGE RIP OFF!!! OMG....I was just reading about it in Car and Driver.....perfomance wise...it did NOTHING. Still did a 13.2 quarter mile time like STOCK. But it did improve in handling @ .96 in the Skidpad. BUT for 17 GRAND for the Dinan S2-M3 package....SCREW THAT.....Id rather get Blue Balls. It only gave the M3 28 more HP and got rid of the governor. But no way in hell am I gonna get that package now. Screw Dinan! Ok...rant over.

Heres the link if you wanna read about it.

Nothing for BMW is worth the price.
ESPECIALLY Alpina... omg, that stuff is SO over-rated and SO expencive :rolleyes: (sarcasm)

its a BMW not a civic. sure some parts are overpriced, but things are pricey for all of us who chose to buy the best, whether it be BMW, Audi, Mercedes etc.

I was told by a Dinan rep that aftermarket exhaust are just for show and HP claimed is useless:dunno:

If I get an M3 soon, Im definitly not touchin the engine, cus there alot of bullsh1t hype from all companies. the only thing I would look for is reducin the weight. so Ill just get an aftermarket exhaust like eisanmann, and wheels:D

Smart...
There's room for improvement for the suspension too. C&D felt that the Dinan M3 handles better than stock *and* has better ride.

p.s. why is this off-topic?

glad you saw thru dinann package

you can mod. your car up and get the 50 h/p and make the m3 faster than the dinann deal for less than the 17,000 period. but
like any thing you are just paying for the name.

drop in your car the 444 rear end gears and you will see a good 1/2 second time faster. for around 3,000.00 and then get

the holy three
gruppe m intake group buy for 1,200
comp. softwear 500
gruppe m exhaust with headers 4,000 and then get

a larger throttle boddyies not sure on this one but i say very thing around 12,000 all in all

and you save 5,000 and the car will be faster add a few more thousand for handerling
sway bars
rear cross brace
so3 tires
coilovers
4 wheel corner ballancing

it adds up but if you do it you can get more bang for the buck
and car will go faster and handle just as good

WTF?? I usually agree with you bob but Gruppe M is just as overrated as Dinan.

I am talking abut Gruppe M for M3, specifically the intake. I think it looks cool but have yet to see a non-biased dyno chart that shows any real gains.
