With Dinan, you're paying for reliability and follow-on support.

I know, I've had dinan on my m3's before. It's a ok product but for they price you'd like a bit more power.

Subscribed.

I don't have a drag strip near me but I do have a GPS based Gtech (kinda like a vbox) that also measures 1/4 times. I don't know of any super flat stretches to try this out at.

Please tell us the tune brand so we know what not to buy for now.

Did you run at Route 66 Speedway or another track? I can only assume that your tune has some issues. I really wish I could remember where I read the thread on another forum comparing some dyno runs with different tuners. Dinan had some issues with retarding the timing during the run and actually producing less power than stock. The resolution was to reflash to fix the problem.

We go to Great Lakes, I had the burger jb4 which wasn't working. After working with terry at burger he decided to pull the plug on the jb4 for the x5m/x6m. I've been loping at dinan but I can't justify spending 3500 for 50 crank HP. I had thier tune on my m3 and it was crap. Hell most of Dinan's stuff sucks.

I was really hoping the jb4 would work on my x5m cause if I had an issues with my truck it took 15 min to remove. I've now been looking at VAC motorsports tune, that's like the jb4. They say that it makes power on the dyno and it can be removed before dealer visits.

I always go to laurel BMW and I don't know how'd the feel about a tune on this as far as the warranty goes.

On a car this expensive I would only use a Dinan tune. Also, the car will probably deliver what Dinan states seeing what they did with the N63 in the 550i.
