Dinan-- when e70?

I've been calling Dinan for the past 6 months to inquire about engine software, and they've been telling me that the software will be available soon. Six months later, nothing. Has anyone had any luck finding out?

based on how long it took them to get anything out for the 2004-2006 e53s, i'd say around 2010 or 2011.

I agree, they do take long. The representative that I called, which was based of Atlanta I think, was nothing as of now, but that was 2 months ago.

I read an article about Dinan really looking to push the BMW turbo engines with software flashes. the came out with a product for the 335 engine relatively quick and wil further look to enhance the TT v8. Didn't mention much about NA engines b/c BMW seems to be headed towards all turbo ones.

I test drove the DINAN 335i and it was a blast. However, one would have to put some suspension mods in order to fully enjoy the power. Also, i had to turn off DTC to go, otherwise it would just cut off power. Good job DINAN.

From my BMW tech buddy, he too told me, that BMW is shying away from NA engines since they did all they can do to it. Right now they are really dedicated to the Diesel turbo engines, they are sending a lot of techs for training.
